About Nicole


nicole hanelThank you for your time!  I am available for massage therapy, personal training and in home swim lessons Mondays and Thursdays in Santa Barbara and surrounding areas.  Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Friday through Sundays I am available in the Santa Ynez Valley.  

I am a Santa Barbara native and have been in the health/fitness field for over fifteen years. Since moving back to Santa Barbara in 2007 I have worked as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor.  Once completing school at Santa Barbara Body Works and becoming a massage therapist in 2008, I knew I had found my true calling.  I love healing and helping people feel their best.  The two work hand in hand to keep the body fit whether it be for sport or playing with grandkids.  Since moving in late 2015, I am excited to bring my skills to the Santa Ynez Valley.
