Founder & Coach  

Welcome to our website! I'm Nicky and I can't wait to share my passion for health and fitness with you.

My goal is to recruit, educate and break down barriers for anyone wanting to enter the fitness industry. I chose to work in the education and teaching division of the fitness industry to inspire and encourage both existing fitness professionals and newcomers to elevate their passion for fitness.

My extensive experience in group fitness and personal training management on a regional and worldwide scale in Canada, the UK and New Zealand, has gained me recognition as an influencer in the industry.


I specialize in Yoga, mobility and functional movement, accredited by Yoga Alliance, 200RYT.

I am a proud Mama, author and fitness professional. I am looking forward to learning more about you!


Founder & Coach

Hey Gareth here, so glad you could join us!

I'm extremely passionate about providing an environment within the fitness space that allows for more than just a 'workout' by educating and helping others to truly understand and embrace the 'why' behind exercise and movement!


With over 20 years and 20000 hours of coaching experience, I deliver my training sessions with a deep understanding and empathy which offers inclusion and provides results! I look forward to sharing this with you!


My career has taken me around the world working on the gym floor, in the group fitness studio and excelling in many leadership roles. During my time as a fitness professional I have been invited to present at many fitness conferences and events, allowing me to help grow the skills of many other fitness professionals!


I am a Dad to an awesome 4 year old and I also love to host and produce my podcast, play soccer and drink coffee, LOTS of coffee!
