Marissa Nichols has been actively involved in organized sports and athletics since she was five years old. Her high energy and passion for sports has lead her through High School, College and in a Semi-Pro soccer league where she played until 2009 when she tore her ACL. This may have been one of the most pivotal points in her life as this experience is what helped her decide that she wanted to become a personal trainer and help athletes to prevent injuries.
Her next step was moving to Philadelphia in 2010 where she joined the team at Balance and has since achieved AAI/ISMA and IHP Personal Training certifications. She currently has a wide variety of clients that she works with and enjoys helping making a positive impact on their lives. Being the mother of 2 young daughters, Marissa has also developed Mommy & Me workouts where the mom can get a great workout in while incorporating and engaging their baby/toddler. She loves working with expecting and new moms as well as young athletes.
