About Me

Nichelle Hines is an actress, celebrity trainer, Chief Ride Officer at Cycle House, and television personality on the reality series, Hollywood Cycle (Tuesdays 10|9C).

Born and raised in San Francisco, Nichelle went on to pursue her BA from UC Berkeley and MFA from NYU. A talented actress who earned her Screen Actor’s Guild card after a role on The Sopranos, Hines has made appearances on Grey’s Anatomy, The King of Queens, Parenthood, Scandal and NCIS: Los Angeles, among others.

When she’s off the screen, Hines can be found pushing her clients past what they ever thought was possible, and her energy and fervor comes from first-hand experience. Hines found her passion for riding after taking accidental teaching opportunity in October 2008 when her instructor didn’t show up for class and the gym’s manager asked Hines to take the reigns. Call it a “happy accident,” or destiny; Hines was on the schedule of teaching the next day.

Since losing over 60 pounds, Hines has made fitness not only her personal passion, but has also paved the road for many of her loyal clients and class devotees. Known for her intense, blood-pumping classes, when Hines shows tough love, it’s coming from first-hand experience and understanding. Same goes for when she’s yelling “You have no idea what you’re capable of!” into the faces of her sweat-dripping students.
