IFBB Figure and Fitness Competitor - Nicole Wilkins
This beautiful young lady is five foot six, 130 pound IFBB Figure and Fitness competitor Nicole Wilkins.
Nicole was born on February 5th, 1984 in Royal Oak, Michigan and for the last few years, has really been tearing up IFBB competitions.
Since the 2009 IFBB Europa Show of Champions, Nicole has been in eleven competitions and placed first in all but one.
And the one that she didn't win, she placed second in!
Nicole started out in ballet when she was five, then moved on to dancing, gymnastics and cheerleading.
And she was also a self described tomboy as well.
She got into weightlifting as the result of a knee injury that she sustained in high school.
While recuperating, she noticed how free weights were quickly developing her upper body and decided to go all in.
Nicole actually competed at The Arnold Classic back in 2002, but in the Gymnastics category , not Fitness or Figure.
In college she began competing in Fitness and in 2006, she started working with trainer Kim Oddo (who also worked with Monica Brant).
Nicole competed in both Fitness and Figure at some shows.
At the 2008 Olympia, she placed in both Fitness and in Figure...no small feat considering the level of competition there.
Nicole is not just all show and no go by any means.
She has a BA in Wellness, Health Promotion and Injury Prevention from Oakland University, she is an IFPA Certified Personal Trainer/ Sports Nutritionist and she is the owner of NW Fitness Group Online Personal Training.
She has appeared in Muscle and Fitness HERS, Flex Magazine, Muscle and Fitness Magazine, NPC News Magazine, Oxygen Magazine, Strut Magazine, Vital Magazine and Ironman Magazine.
