ABOUT NIKKI RAY
I'm a Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist certified by the American Council on Exercise. I’m also mother to two of the most amazing people in this world and a former attorney.
I have been on this journey to heal my mind and body through exercise and nutrition for five years and it has transformed every aspect of my life.
During the past five years, I have discovered that pretty much everything I thought I knew about exercise and nutrition was wrong.
It is absolutely possible to stay fit, healthy and lean without dumb diets, cleanses, pills and hours of cardio.
Exercise is actually enjoyable once you change your mindset and get in sync with your body.
Age is just a number. You control your body at every age, not the other way around. (Did I mention I’m 40?)
Whether you are new to fitness, coming back from an exercise hiatus or looking to take your fitness to the next level, I am here to help you. I offer customized exercise programs and nutrition coaching for all fitness levels and I'd love to help you learn how to transform your body and mind through exercise and healthy nutrition.
Let me help you FIND YOUR STRONG.
WORKOUT & NUTRITION PROGRAMS
As a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, I offer a wide range of fitness services and training styles. In addition to weight loss and weight maintenance, I also help with improving cardiovascular and muscular endurance, building strength and correcting postural issues.
All my programs are customized for your specific health and fitness goals. One thing you can be certain about is that I am not your ordinary personal trainer that will try to sell you a hundred personal training sessions. As a firm believer in setting attainable goals, if you request to start a program that is unrealistic considering your fitness level and lifestyle, I will advise that you start with a moderate program and increase the frequency and intensity when you are ready. My mission is to help you adopt and more importantly MAINTAIN a fit and healthy lifestyle - So if you are looking for quick fixes to lose weight which will inevitably lead to more weight gain long term and quite possibly also have serious effects on your health, I am not the fitness and nutrition coach for you.
You will also find that my idea of nutrition coaching is not e-mailing you weekly cookie cutter meal plans, but instead taking you through this process leaving you educated, clear and prepped for a healthy and realistic diet. This is why I offer a grocery tour, tips on how to read food labels and a "pantry overhaul" with my nutrition coaching programs. Unlike most other nutrition coaches, I do not use apps to generate meal plans -- All my meal plans are prepared from scratch, based on each client's individual health and fitness goals, dietary restrictions and lifestyle. My meal plans are designed to create lifelong habits and include foods you love -- so you can rest assured you will not be eating chicken and broccoli every day. Most of my clients have pasta, burgers, sushi and tacos on a regular basis and we still reach those weight and fat loss goals. No foods are off-limits and everything can be enjoyed as long as it's enjoyed in moderation.
In addition to my existing workout and nutrition programs, I am happy to design a different program for you based on your lifestyle and fitness goals.
