MASTERCLASS with Madonna’s PT NICOLE WINHOFFER
A DAY WITH NICOLE WINHOFFER @GYMBOX
I spent an energy fuelled day getting to know MADONNA’s PT Nicole Winhoffer and experi
encing her new workout, the NW method.
Definitely not for those who shy away from a challenge.
It was a gruelling 55 minute workout that promised to work every muscle group of the body and the day after I can confirm that this was the case.
I have an equal sensation of new bodily awareness in my deltoids, obliques, flexors AND hamstrings! Actually pretty satisfying. Nicole talked about bringing out the curves of a woman in her 360 degree workout (similar to VOGA) which aims to extend movement of the body laterally as well as forward and back. Is my waist that little bit more shapely! Here’s me hoping so!
What I enjoyed about this intensely cardio workout was the fact that every time you began to feel out of your depth, something flexi, stretchy and open came along to give you light relief between the infinite strengthening moves. The music was a strong propellor and I found myself getting lost in the tunes and the moment.
My first reaction to run from the room after 5 minutes transformed into feel-good euphoria by the end and a feeling of satisfaction that I’d completed the challenge, and an experience normally out of my comfort zone.
I liked Nicole’s analogy that how you embrace difficulties in the workout reflects how you deal with everyday issues. She urges a spiritual attitude and awareness of energies and chakras to look within yourself to come up with the goods and find your inner power so you leave equipped with strong mind and body to take with you into situations and challenges of the real world. With a new sense of your empowered and fitter self…(again similarities to VOGA and the power of the pose)
An inspiring day for sure and an inspired chick. Looking forward to meeting again in NYC.

SHOCK YOUR BODY IN THE DARK WITH MODERN MOVEMENT.
The NW™ method was invented as a result of stage performance of the best entertainers by Nicole Winhoffer.
The NW™ method frees yourself mentally and it empowers people through movement in the dark.
Thought + Physicality= Results.
Accessing the meridians used in acupuncture, clients focus on the 3 major problem areas of the body: behind the arms, the waist, and the buttocks. The 55-minute workout works every muscle in the body and done on beat of each unique song. The purpose is to have the most time effective challenging workout that’s fun, shocks the body, and opens the mind to connect with your personal power.
It’s more than a class, it’s an experience, and it’s waiting for you!
