  • Nora is an amazing dance trainer who played an instrumental role in taking me from a beginner to placing 30th at the World Championships. Her abundance of energy inspires you to keep going even if you think you've got nothing left to give. Darcie and Nora are a great team that will help you reach your full potential.

  • Drawing on her deep knowledge of anatomy, Nora immediately identified my kids focal weaknesses and used custom-designed strengthening to correct them - starting on day 1 of the training. My kids began training with Nora and Darcie during COVID lockdown, and by the time we were able to return to competing, my irish dance prelim champ was immediately placing in feis' and my equestrian ultimately won reserve champion in a local horse show series. We had tried other fitness trainers but no-one was successful in keeping my dreamy 10-year-old engaged in a fitness class

  • Nora, whom I have known for over 20 years, reminds me of a high wire act . She is able to perfectly balance work and family, fun with hard work, and flexibility by the book to bring success to everything she does. Her adventuresome spirit and balanced approach to life is what will make her latest venture Excel and Fit&Fab Coaching a huge success.

  • What an amazing addition to Alice’s life you and Darcie have been, not only to her physical advancement, but holistically she has developed a strong enthusiasm for her own physical strength and has found mentorship and kindness in you both.
