New Orleans native Nicole Williamson has always led an active lifestyle. Her lifelong passion for athleticism and health has led her to become one of Louisiana’s leading fitness activists and providers.  

After graduating from college with a degree in Marketing and Merchandising, she began a career in the fashion industry working for the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue and Burberry, in the cities of New York, London, and Baltimore. During this period, she began her comprehensive Pilates training through Balanced Body in 2010. After becoming a certified Balanced Body Pilates Instructor, Nicole continued her fitness education to receive certifications as an official American Council on Exercise™ personal trainer, TRX™ Group Suspension Trainer, Bootybarre™ instructor, Schwinn™ Indoor Cycling Instructor, Insanity™ certified instructor and Shockwave trainer. 

Armed with her passion and expertise, Nicole recognized the need for a revolutionary boutique fitness concept in Southern Louisiana. She opened TreadBR™ in August 2012 and implemented and popularized the balanced lifestyle she had always pursued. She has empowered her clients to live the same lifestyle by providing a unique variety of classes, a nourishing atmosphere, and the motivation necessary to cultivate their own balance.

Nicole resides in Baton Rouge with her husband, Blake and son, Waylon. She enjoys walking the lakes with her family, pedicures with her friends, and green juices from Magpie Café.
