5 Questions With….. Nicole Chaplin

April 10, 2014 Leave a comment

 photo 5-questions-with-NICOLE-CHAPLIN-the-industry-cosign_zps9d0c0ec8.jpgWe all have career goals and dreams that we usually pursue and then try to accomplish. Of course, life throws us curves or we change direction for whatever reason and sometimes, it works out better for us long term when this happens and then we shape our lives in a way that we didn’t imagine or anticipate.

This is where Nicole Chaplin enters. After taking the typical college route and landing a position right away, something happened that changed her career path and it has really taken off for the young personal trainer. She has focused in a different direction and not only does it continue to help her, it essentially helps even more people than herself and it is fulfilling for her.

1. You were once an industry executive at Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam and now you are a celebrity personal fitness trainer. How did you first become involved in the entertainment industry and what made you decide to become a personal trainer?

I graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Music Business and Entertainment. I moved to NYC immediately after graduation and by God’s grace I landed an assistant position within a week at Geffen Records. Shortly after, I was at BMI then Roc-A-Fella came about. I decided to become a personal trainer after Roc-A-Fella because I noticed my lifestyle encompassed more health and wellness then anything else and with ease, personal training became a career and it fits me like a glove.
