Coach Nicole is AMAZING!! Coach Nicole's objective is to teach the fundamental skills, the "how" and explain the "why" so that your athlete will have a complete understanding of what they're doing. My son is athletic but new to the long jump. In just two training sessions, my son is getting better and feeling more confident. Coach Nicole teaches with her expertise and develops a solid individual plan for your athlete's growth. I'm thrilled my son is training for the summer with Coach Nicole!

Coach Lincoln was very thorough in explaining the process. Madison was very receptive and ready to get started.

Coach Nicole is a wonderful teacher. She communicates effectively and motivates. So glad we found her.

Coach Nicole is very passionate about coaching, and she makes her athletes feel empowered, important, and most of all she helps them reach their goals. Excellent coach!!

The session that was purchased was for my 8th grade son. We were both extremely pleased with Coach Nicole. It was immediately obvious that she was the real deal. She was able to assess my son's technique and point out his deficiencies. Coach Nicole gave my son some fundamental instruction which was effective almost right away. My son looked like a different athlete after 15 minutes of instruction. My son and I both agreed that Coach Nicole after one session has given him a solid foundation to build upon. We definitely are going to schedule more sessions with Coach Nicole. We both would and will absolutely recommend other athletes to Coach Nicole.

My high school daughter enjoyed her first session with Coach Nicole because “really knows what she’s doing.” During the session, Coach Nicole explained her plan for the session, evaluated my daughter’s current level and explained her approach for improvement. My daughter is looking forward to more sessions with her because she knows she’ll improve with her.

Coach Nicole is very knowledgeable in track and field. We have only had one session but will be signing up for more. She assess the athletes strengths and weakness and puts together an personalized training program for them. Coach Nicole is very positive and follows through on what the athlete is looking to improve upon.

Connor felt like he really learned alot in just 2 sessions. We like that she is starting with the fundamentals.

Coach Nicole is very knowledgeable and motivating. I love the passion and effort she instills into the youth. I'm so excited for my daughter as she continues her journey with Coach Nicole.

My son (14) thoroughly enjoyed his first session with Coach Nicole, and felt he really learned a lot to improve his long jump. Her demeanor was great, and she took a short break during the session to explain to me and another new parent her approach. Coach Nicole followed the session with an e-mail thoroughly analyzing the videos she shot of my son's jumps. I feel fortunate to have found her as my son's coach; he is looking forward to his future training sessions with her.

We are training with Coach Nicole for Long and Triple Jumps for my 10th grade daughter. Coach Nicole is so attentive and educated in all aspects of long and triple jump mechanics. We were blown away with attention to the smallest details. She trains from personal as well as professional experience, and my daughter felt so motivated and confident after only one session. We can't wait to work with her and see all of her potential be achieved with the right coaching! Thanks Coach Nicole!

Coach Nicole Lincoln is a dream come true for my son. We have been in pursuit of a coach to help my son develop his speed and technique in both the long jump
and his running. In just a few practices, she has provided him with the skills and guidance to significantly increase his jump performance. And most importantly, she has a wonderful temperament with him. She pushes him and encourages. She is not only building his body and athletic skill, but his mind and confidence as well. We are pleased and thankful to be working with her.

Coach Lincoln is amazing! She is a dynamic, extremely knowledgeable instructor and coach. She is wonderful with children and has a comprehensive program that teaches your child the fundamentals and beyond for the long jump. We were searching for someone to give my 9 year old son additional training for the long jump and she has exceed all of our expectations. I would recommend her for private and/or small group sessions without hesitation.

Very Energetic and Enthusiastic!!

Coach Lincoln has been a great asset in my daughter’s continued development. Her knowledge and methodical approach have helped her offseason preparation for jumps and hurdles. In addition, she really focuses on developing the total athlete - mind, body and character. I’m looking forward to seeing the results on the track this upcoming season! I would highly recommend Coach Lincoln.

Coach Nicole is great. I love how she breaks down the process of jumping and how she works with my daughter by going step by step. She is methodical; I love it.

Coach Lincoln helped my son improve on his techniques with high jump. He felt he learned a lot and was very appreciative of Coach Lincoln. Thanks Coach!

Phenomenal results thus far with just minimal sessions conducted. My daughter is looking forward to spending more time with Coach Lincoln where we know she will get even stronger, grow & evolve.

We have completed our first session with Coach Nicole and cannot say enough about her training and teaching. To see my daughter smile because of the instruction given and the gratification of a job well done is worth it's weight in gold! I will continue to have her coach my daughter and would tell anyone looking for a coach to look no further, Coach Nicole is amazing!

I love Coach Lincoln!!!!! I initially met Coach Lincoln at an outdoor track meet where she was working high jump. After each of my jumps she provided me feedback on how to improve my jumps. I found this very helpful, because I really don't have a high jump coach and all of her tips seemed to help me. After I qualified for State, I reached out to her to see if I could get some training sessions in before state and thankfully she was available. During my first session, I learned new "on and off the mat" drills and new stretching techniques. She helped me develop a new mark to improve my speed and momentum and I saw IMMEDIATE improvement. Not only did Coach Lincoln help me to improve my technique but she also helped to build my confidence. I am forever grateful and I will continue to work her throughout the summer as I prepare to go to Nationals.

Coach Nicole really knows her stuff. She helped my daughter from the very first session to become a better runner and athlete. She explains 'how' and just as important the 'why', so everything that she's asking the athlete to do makes sense. The program is tailored to the track events my daughter is doing and the individualized attention is really great. Highly recommended!

Coach Nicole is amazing. My daughter took to her right away and is loving the help. We would recommend her to anyone who is serious about improving their technique!

My daughter Jill has had 3 sessions with Coach Nicole for High Jump. Each session has been spent on one phase of the high jump and now Jill is trying to put it all together. Jill said she likes working with Nicole and feels like she is making progress. The sessions are spent on approach and technique. Nicole also gives Jill exercises to strengthen her core.

I can not say enough positive things about Coach Nicole. Coach Nicole started training my daughter on hurdles, about one year ago. When my daughter started, she did not have the proper form or the proper speed for hurdles. In about a year, Coach Nicole was able to fix her form and increase her speed. Not only did Coach Nicole give my daughter the proper techniques for hurdles, more importantly she gave her the confidence to do her best. In fact, my daughter prefers training with Coach Nicole over her high school coaches. Finally, I also want to stress the professionalism that Coach Nicole brings to each session. She not only knows the techniques, but she also is able to explain the science behind the techniques, which is immensely helpful for the athletes and even the parents. There are many private coaches out there, but Coach Nicole is really the best one.

Very easy to talk to and takes her coaching seriously.

Coach Lincoln provides a sound program for developing skills in sprinting, hurdling, long jumping, and high jumping. Our son's first season under her training and he has just been crowned the national champion in long jump in the 9-year-old boys division. This is his first experience with track and field and to see this kind of result in four months is remarkable.
