With an intense passion for music and movement, Nikki blazed into the fitness world and into MORFIT Training Centre!
Nikki’s contagious passion for movement comes from eight years as a professional dancer and instructor.
Since she certified as a trainer in 2012, Nikki has inspired an eclectic mix of clients, including: office personnel, dancers, individuals with mobility restrictions, and high school and university level athletes. As a Certified Athletic Therapist, she applies her knowledge and experience in physical assessment and rehabilitation to her program design.
When she isn’t prancing around the gym, Nikki is usually eating sushi! During the summer months, she heads out to the cabin as often as she can to water ski and enjoy the sun.
Nikki believes every goal and ambition is personal and unique. As a trainer, she ensures clients not only meet their goals, but take the journey alongside someone they feel comfortable with. When working with clients, Nikki’s passion for movement is apparent and often contagious! Spontaneous mid-workout groove sessions have been known to occur!
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) in 2012, Nikki completed her Personal Training Certification with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. While working as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, Nikki continued practicing Athletic Therapy and successfully completed the certification exams in June 2014. While working full-time as an Athletic Therapist at MORFIT, Nikki also spends time instructing rehabilitation in the lab at the University of Winnipeg.
Nikki believes that everybody and has a story and they’re all different, requiring a personalized approach. As a former dancer, Nikki has a deeper understanding of pelvic and core dysfunction and the way it can manifest outward to the rest of the body.
Her continuing education and treatment tools of interest include: Soft Tissue Release, Selective Functional Movement Assessment, trigger point therapy, myofascial cupping, and acupuncture (pending, Dec).
In the clinic, Nikki works with a variety of clients, including general public, MPI and WCB claims, pre and post surgery patients, and university level athletes. In the field, she has worked with high school level track & field, hockey, volleyball, basketball, swim teams, and the University of Winnipeg Wrestling team. Additionally, Nikki has been Head Therapist for the Clansmen Football Team five years running.
