Welcome to my blog, The Fit and Toned Mom! Here, I offer guidance and support to help you get fit and reach your fitness goals. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been working out for years, I have something for everyone.

I’m Nicole, a passionate fitness trainer, author, writer, and editor for Fitness Magazine ‘Strong and Sculpted’. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 10 years, and I’m here to help you get the most out of your workouts and create a balanced lifestyle. With my blog, I share my tips and tricks, workout routines, and inspiration to help you get strong and sculpted.

Perhaps you've never stepped foot in a gym before, find yourself puzzled by the enigma of a burpee, and are questioning whether fitness can ever truly be enjoyable. (Spoiler alert: It absolutely can, though burpees... well, let's just say they're not for everyone!)

On the other hand, you might be a seasoned athlete seeking fresh inspiration and eager to connect with like-minded individuals beyond your usual circle. Rest assured, there's an abundance of content here to cater to your needs as well.

Both of these scenarios are the driving force that motivates me every morning (and you thought I was solely driven by breakfast!).


They are the reasons I entered this world and embraced a career as a fitness professional. Why? Because each and every one of us is fortunate to have the ability to engage in physical activity, regardless of how we may appear while doing it.

Conversations That Go Beyond the Surface: Topics in Health, Fitness, and Industry


Beyond the Surface: Engaging Discussions on Health, Fitness, and Industry

Let's engage in some genuine conversation, or maybe we should just call it #realtalk?

In the current landscape of social media, "real talk" often gets lost in the noise of hashtags. I'm taking it back to the basics, aiming for authentic connections—less "Gangster's Paradise" vibes, more real, meaningful dialogue.

Every piece of content I create is grounded in thorough research, providing you with essential insights, expert evaluations, and, of course, my personal perspective.

We explore a range of topics, including health, fitness, cycling, running, wellness, lifestyle, and the fuel needed for your exciting adventures. And we're approaching it in a way that's genuinely relatable because, let's be honest, even I have moments when the idea of training feels like a daunting task!

Embracing the Power of Every Strength Physical


Accomplishments are quantified through personal bests, maximum lifts, and newfound distances.

Yet, there are other strengths that defy measurement. They reside within the realms of the mental and emotional—found in conquering the challenges you've always aspired to overcome or the mere act of taking that first step.

Every single one of these strengths holds significance. Together, let's celebrate your journey, cherishing every stride (or shuffle) along the way.
