Nicole Rush, B.S., CPT

Personal Trainer

I want to help you get the best out of yourself. After improving my own health, and realizing that an active lifestyle is necessary for my body to function, I became passionate about helping others find their own path to wellness through exercise. Eight years ago, injury and illness challenged me and I decided to change my life: doing the slow and hard work of exercise for recovery.

Nicole earned a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, with an emphasis on Health and Fitness, from the University of Maine in Gorham. In addition to being a personal trainer, Nicole works at The Gym training, teaching cycle, battle ropes and active aging. Whatever your activity level, I will challenge and guide you to help make the changes you want to see in your health and wellness.

If your goal is weight loss, strengthening, playing with your grandchildren, or maybe just feeling better than you have in years, I can be the friendly face and voice, ready to greet you and push you to reach those results. No matter what your goal, it is my compassion, dedication, and creativity can help you achieve it!
