Nadine is another client-turned-trainer and a product of the SST Internship Program. Nadine grew up watching her mother work as a certified personal trainer in Michigan, and Nadine began her own fitness journey as a gymnast at eight years old. Her career as a gymnast ended with two knee surgeries at eighteen years old, but only after winning the state championship for bars. After gymnastics she entered into the CrossFit box, became a certified coach, and then came to Seriously Strong Training to perfect her form. Fast-forward a year and we asked her to join our team as a strength coach.
Because of her knee surgeries Nadine has learned what it takes to come back from serious injury–both the mental & physical recovery. Life as a gymnast had it’s own pressures: grueling practices, long hours, and the body image issues that come with the pressure to maintain a low body weight. It took some years but Nadine successfully repaired her knee, and her relationship with food finally finding balance in her diet.
Nadine’s gymnastics background has taught her how to help clients develop strong, slim midsections. Her beginnings in CrossFit have shaped her HIIT conditioning workouts. Athena’s influence as Nadine’s mentor is shown in her affinity for glute training programs. Nadine was born in Michigan to German immigrants where she has lived most of her life. She is a dual-citizen of the USA & Germany, and attended her earliest school years in Japan. Nadine holds a B.S. in Exercise Physiology from Florida State University.

"I came in blissfully unaware and even intimidated by heavy weights. I have always thought that upper body strength was a guy thing and just wrote off me ever being able to dead lift or lift any thing over 10 pounds. Thankfully, I met Nadine and she totally changed everything I knew and thought I knew about weight lifting. I went from knowing nothing to being able to safely and correctly squat, dead lift, and press with the best of them. Nadine not only help me build up my upper body strength but my confidence too!" *Results may vary
"My hour at Seriously Strong with Nadine has become my favorite part of my day. Nadine has taught me so much about fitness, nutrition, and how to balance it as a college student, and she has made reaching my goals so easy! Before I worked with Nadine I had no experience and a lot of fear on the bench press. NO MORE! The best part about working with her has been all of the size I've added to my glutes. I get compliments from strangers now!" *Results may vary
"Nadine is my absolute favorite person and the best trainer for me. Not only is she knowledgeable about the workouts but makes sure we work on whatever I want to improve. The workouts are so helpful in gaining strength and shredding body fat. She has heavily invested in my success and I have already seen results. She gives at home workouts to do when I'm not training to help continue to support my growth and strength. She is personable and makes working out fun, which I didn't know it could be. I thoroughly look forward to going twice a week and seeing her! If you're looking for a great workout option to tone or get in shape, or just have a blast while training, go to seriously strong and see Nadine!" *Results may vary
