I'm Nicole (she/her), a trauma-informed, neurodivergent personal trainer, yoga and group fitness coach with a mission to change our collective relationship to exercise. I'm here to make working out feel more empowered, inclusive and playful and to help you discover ways to move in a safe, effective and fun way.

Nicole Adams teaching barre fitness in studio

I never intended to be a teacher, but the path chose me. An avid athlete since childhood, yoga and group fitness classes were initially a way for me to disconnect from my body. I felt very uncomfortable in classes both as an instructor and client which led me to open my own business.

In 2017 I founded Origin House of Fitness in Fort Collins, CO as a safe haven to explore exercise in a mindful and joyful way. Consciously veering off the path of diet culture and fitness for physique, I'm changing the culture of group fitness to include mental health and mindfulness, self-care and empowerment.

I provide live in-person classes and personal training, offer an expansive library of On Demand classes, and teach weekly live classes on Zoom.
