Health coaches are knowledgeable advisors who provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. As your health coach, I will create a supportive environment that will help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that will enable you to reach your health goals. I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life that is flexible, fun and free of restriction and discipline. Together, we will explore concerns specific to you and your body and discover the tools you need for a lifetime of balance. It is my personal mission to guide and inspire you to achieve optimal health and happiness on a vegan lifestyle.
I received my training as a health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. During my training, I studied practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. Additionally, I studied Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Centre for Nutrition Studies, and I am also a qualified personal trainer with a degree in human movement (exercise science). My education and experience within the health and fitness industry has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, lifestyle coaching, and preventative health. Drawing on these skills and knowledge, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. We’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, increasing sleep, and maximising energy. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfilment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are all essential forms of nourishment. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

“After just a few short months of following Nicole’s recommendations I have dropped a couple of kilos but more importantly found substantial improvements in overall health and recovery time. The dietary advice has been just as valuable as the exercise advice. Thanks Nicole.”
Gerard McGrath (SA, Australia)
“Nicole has an immense knowledge of not only exercise but also nutrition, losing weight and coping with stress. Even though she has this knowledge she keeps it simple unless questioned in which case she will demonstrate her immense knowledge. Nicole is a very good listener and practices what she preaches (based on her own superb exercise regime and outstanding success in sport). Under Nicole’s guidance I have lost over 25kg in less than a year and developed an interest in exercise, nutrition and fitness.”
Peter S. (SA, Australia)
“I worked with Ms. Mitsigeorgis for 6 months and cannot speak highly enough of her holistic approach and the manner in which she helped me progress my personal health, fitness and weight reduction goals. As a 59 year old male with a shortened femur and having Parkinson’s disease, personal trainers with whom I have worked in the USA and Germany have been either somewhat non committal or unwilling to engage me in an exercise program with which I believe I am capable.
Nicole undertook considerable research into Parkinson’s and also was very aware of the type of exercise which may not be desirable, but focused entirely on what was possible. After 4 months I reduced my weight by 6kg, waist circumference by 6cm and my body fat by 5% – and these results would have been better had I followed Nicole’s nutritional advice more diligently. Most important, I feel much better physically and mentally and my neurologist has advised that the reduction in PD symptoms is consistent with research indicating that regular and intense exercise can equal the effectiveness of some medicines in reducing Parkinson’s symptoms and possibly slow the advancement of the disease.
Nicole always demonstrated utmost professionalism, dedication and good humour, but never allowed me to become distracted in what I was doing. No matter how I felt prior to a session, after each one I felt positive and energised. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent health coach and personal trainer with exceptional inter personal skills.”
Ian G. Wing (NY, USA)
“Nicole has a holistic approach to general well being, which has encouraged me to make changes in my lifestyle that has directly lead to benefits in my general welfare. Nicole is a very approachable, friendly and resourceful individual who I would highly recommend to family and friends as a fitness and lifestyle professional.”
Susan Wahrbichler (SA, Australia)
“I came to Nicole with three main goals, which was weight loss, to improve my health, and overcome emotional/binge eating. Nicole was able to help me work toward these goals by supporting me step by step with setting smaller achievable goals. Although weight loss was high on my list, we took the focus off the number on the scales and focussed more on instilling healthy habits for life. Included in our discussions of course was eating/exercise, which are paramount to weight loss, but Nicole has taught me that you need to work on every aspect of your life in order to achieve your goals.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program is that I have lost over 10kg and changed the shape of my body. The most significant overall change I have noticed has been that my obsession with food has disappeared. I still love to eat, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t have the same unhealthy relationship with food as I did before. It used to be ‘all or nothing’, and depending on what I would eat, it would alter my mood. Eating unhealthy food would make me depressed, while healthy food would increase my mood for only a short time. It was a vicious cycle, day in day out, week in week out. My thought process was always ‘how can I lose weight?’, and now I know the solution is a whole-foods plant-based diet, so it takes a huge weight off me to have found the answer.
I would describe Nicole as motivating, understanding, and very knowledgeable in many areas including nutrition, exercise, and both physical and mental health. She has a wealth of experience as a personal trainer, but also has life experience, and has changed her own health and life using all the methods she now teaches. I would recommend Nicole to anyone who wants to better their health and change their life. Whether you have a little or a lot of weight to lose, need help achieving fitness goals, or just want to increase your energy in general. Also if you really want to change your life, whether it be your health, job, relationships, or just want to be happier, Nicole is awesome. You couldn’t ask for a more committed coach!”
Julie Sharrock (QLD, Australia)
“Nicole has such as fantastic understanding of realistic goals and knows exactly how to reach them. She is always full of great advice and information regarding fitness, exercise, and nutrition and you can tell she is constantly learning more to build her already outstanding knowledge. Nicole is supportive and encouraging and I always leave my sessions feeling like she has my best interests at heart. Thanks Nicole – you are the best!”
Nadia Travaglini (SA, Australia)
“I have a lot to thank Nicole for. Before seeking her help, both my fitness and muscles had deteriorated due to a sudden weight loss. Since working with Nicole she has helped me improve my health and fitness 100%. Nicole has motivated me and has shown me the right way to eat and exercise. She is an expert in her field and I wouldn’t hesitate to seek her knowledge again. Thank you Nicole for making me a fitter and healthier individual.”
