Nadine Pingel

Made, born, and raised in Germany, Nadine's family settled in beautiful Washington State after her husband retired from active duty military service. She's lived an active lifestyle all her life, so entering the health and fitness industry as a Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer and Licensed Massage Therapist just made sense. She can honestly say that she LOVES HER JOB. She is passionate about helping clients find the joy in movement, overcoming injuries, or simply staying active to enjoy the things they love to do outside the gym. If she's not at the gym or massage office you can find her spending time with her family and travelling to soccer matches to watch her two teenage daughters following their passion.  She can also be found enjoying the great outdoors trail running, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking or climbing mountains.

She is passionate about  movement.

She is wildly happy when in nature.

She feels most confident in her profession as a Personal Trainer and Bodyworker.

She is terrified of failing as a mother and wife.

She never grows old of the sight of Mt. Rainier and the ocean.

She is inspired by her clients.
