I’m Nicole Mattioli and I have a heart and passion for helping others reach their financial and physical goals as a Ramsey Preferred Coach and Pilates Instructor.
I’ve been a dancer my whole life, have worked in the financial industry for 14 years, and love my kitty Jete’, of course! I started Budget and Body by Nicole in 2016 because I knew I could help people achieve the same success with their budget and body as I did.
My mission is to provide my clients with skills and knowledge to either achieve financial success or physical goals or BOTH!
I didn’t always have financial success and a balanced body.
In fact, before 2011, I was in debt, living paycheck-to-paycheck and had no retirement plan. Did I mention that I worked in the Financial Industry for many years? Oh yes, even though I was successful in my finance job, I struggled with my finances personally.
Being a dancer my whole life, you would think that I would have the perfect body. However, the outside appearance didn’t match the internal muscle imbalances and pain.
Financial stress high. Confidence low.
Before I become a Ramsey Preferred Coach, I was living paycheck-to-paycheck without savings caused me tremendous stress. I constantly worried about my financial future. I was ashamed, frustrated and embarrassed at my inability to handle my money.
One Sunday at church, our Pastor spoke about an upcoming course that would teach people how to manage their money. I thought could this be the answer? Could this help me gain control of my money and pay off my debt?
Financial Peace and a Ramsey Preferred Coach
I quickly enrolled in the course called Financial Peace University, developed by Dave Ramsey in 1992 after he learned how to pay off debt, save and spend wisely, and build wealth. As I began the 13-week course, I started to learn a valuable lesson. I wasn’t alone and even Dave Ramsey himself was once feeling pretty low about his financial situation.
I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I’m the idiot who signed up for the trip. -Dave Ramsey
Unfortunately, as life goes, soon after starting the course my mother was in a horrible car accident. I had to stop everything to take care of her. Slowly as my mother began her recovery, I went back and completed the 13-week course.
What a victory!
After completing the course, I had a different relationship with money and new money management skills. I was so excited and wanted to show the world what I had learned. So, I completed the Financial Coach Master Training and became a Ramsey Preferred Coach.
I want you to experience the same VICTORY!
Feel better and change your body.
I want the world to feel how my clients and I feel after each session. Pilates is so much more than just a strong core and long, lean look even though that’s an awesome benefit!
I want you to experience a CHANGED BODY!
Pilates a source of physical strength and a path to a functioning body.
I have danced since the age of three. After years of competitive and professional dancing, I had muscle imbalances, a weak core, and difficulty managing daily activities, this led to pain and a knee injury. During my professional dance career, I met my Pilates Master. He would bring bands to rehearsal and show me exercises. I began taking weekly sessions from him and soon noticed how my body, posture, and dancing completely changed.
My body felt better and Pilates became another passion, a source of physical strength and a path to a functioning body that I wanted to share with others. I completed my comprehensive Pilates training in 2009 and have been teaching private and duet Pilates and Cardio Rebounding sessions ever since. My Pilates training includes Reformer, Cadillac, Mat, Ladder Barrel, Chair, Band, Ball, Roller, and Cardio Rebounding.
