Coach Nicole’s coaching philosophy
1. Get trust and buy in (relationships)
2. Execute the game plan (programming)
3. Communicate simply: clear and concise
“Relatedness = Trust & Empathy. Simple things like eye contact and human touch can help bridge the gap.”
Human performance is not just for athletes but young & old, sedentary, weekend warrior & elite athletes. My philosophy is best summarized in Laird Hamiltons’ quote “that which enhances performance prevents injury”. I believe the key to a sustainable approach to activity is baking positive lifestyle choices/optionality into our environment. This epitomizes an agile, upstream mindset with minimal downside risk.
At LA Sports & Spine we say “function better to feel better”
As clinicians & coaches I feel it’s time we see the big picture of Exercise as Medicine.  My LASS Vision is expressed here –
  1. load management
  2. threat managment
  3. sparing strategies
  4. stabilizing
  5. S&C (GPP)
  6. power/skill (SPP)
