About the instructors 

Nichole Scott, Empower Fitness Instructor, started her healthy lifestyle journey after completing her Master of Social Work and has kept the momentum ever since.  Nichole attributes this to the growth and self-improvement environment Empower’s fitness approach provides.

Prior to Empower, the hardest part for Nichole was finding the accountability piece for her exercise commitment.  She tried several avenues to help keep her committed, which included everything from purchasing home equipment to gym memberships.  It was not until she was introduced to Empower’s cardio drumming that she was able to stay committed. She had so much fun that she became an Empower leader so that she could encourage others to become better versions of themselves.  Nichole believes that, “We each come from a unique place and sharing our experiences will help us achieve the healthy lifestyle goals we set for ourselves.” 


Brian & Lydia Wallace are long time followers of Dave Ramsey. They truly believe in this course because they have been living out what Dave teaches for over a decade.  Brian, a local real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway & The Team Real Estate Group, and Lydia, a business analyst for Lincoln Financial Group, enjoy helping people.  Teaching Dave’s course allows them to scratch that financial itch while gaining friendships along the way
