Instructor & Run Coach, FIT4MOM® Chapel Hill
Nikki, originally from Iowa, moved to Chapel Hill with her family in October 2014. For the last 5 ½ years, she lived in New York City and prior to that Miami. Nikki graduated from the University of Iowa College of Nursing with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She worked in the operating room as a circulating and scrub nurse for many years. After the birth of her first son, Nikki decided to step away from nursing to stay home and raise her now 5 year old, 3 year old, and 6 month old boys. It was during those first few months of motherhood that she attended a stroller based fitness class in NYC. This was a fantastic find as not only did she get a great workout, but also made some lifelong friends. This is one of the many reasons that Nikki is passionate about teaching Stroller Strides. It’s a fabulous way to get a hard core, muscle building, aerobic workout, but at the same time having the support of other women tackling the rigors of motherhood. Health and fitness have always been a part of Nikki’s lifestyle and she is excited to teach what she loves.
Nikki is an avid runner and enjoys doing road races, with or without the stroller. She has run four marathons: Chicago, Boston, Miami, and New York City. She loves taking her children on adventurous day trips to find new places to explore. Many times you can find them exploring museums, parks and playgrounds, and anything that has to do with trains and airplanes! She’ll also encourage everyone to try and sneak away to attend the monthly Fit4Mom Moms Night Outs. A perfect way to relax after a long day!
