Hey, I'm Nicole!
I'm a Canadian Professional Squash Association player (highest world ranking of #39, so far!), NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Precision Nutrition L1 Nutrition Coach, and self-proclaimed training geek!
I also love wearing short shorts, curling up on a comfy couch in a full grey sweatsuit (the "gr-outfit") and watching Band of Brothers or any Amanda Bynes movie.
A BIT ABOUT ME
Quirks aside, I’m not your normal squash pro or gym trainer. I use my experience as a professional squash player and certified trainer to create effective, no-BS training programs for squash players.
After graduating in 2015 as an All-American and with my degree in Biology from Princeton University, I began working as a personal trainer & group fitness coach in New York City. While I trained clients full-time and coached squash on the side, I was also rehabbing my own injuries, having recently had knee surgery and been in a car accident.
By learning how to train smart and effectively, I was able to make a full recovery, and begin playing on the PSA world tour.
Since 2015, I have trained clients of all ages & levels, coached squash to juniors, masters players, and die-hard enthusiasts, all while playing professionally on the world tour.
SQUASHLETIC IS BORN!
In 2020, the concept of Squashletic (originally “Nicole Bunyan Squash & Fitness”) was created.
Unable to train on court, coach clients, or compete in tournaments, I sat quarantined in my apartment and contemplated how I could help squash players keep (or get) fit for their return to squash.
Other pros and coaches were running live zoom workouts, and while it was a good short-term fix, I realized it wasn’t sustainable, or going to help squash players fitness levels in the long run.
So, in June, I impulsively ran a 10-day challenge for squash players, where I posted workout videos online. I had a few takers, and over the next few months I began to expand and explore the online training space, to see how I could create accessible, valuable training content for squash players.
Fast forward to a couple years later and lots of trial and error, Squashletic has over 6000 Instagram followers, more than 700 email subscribers, and nearly 100 players subscribed to the training app.
WHAT IS SQUASHLETIC?
Whether you need to improve your footwork, conditioning, strength, mobility, or even nutrition, Squashletic takes a holistic approach to your training.
You are not just a squash player- you are a squash ATHLETE, and you need to train like one if you want to improve your game, play several days a week, and continue playing for years to come.
