    Nikki is the best coach and fitness instructor that you can have. She is so talented, dynamic, knowledgeable and passionate with her job that you really engaged with exercise and nutrition. She is one of the top coaches/ fitness professionals in the Bellalago community. All her classes are the top ones. She is always willing to help you and keep the people really motivated to keep coming every week. She is also helping my kid be in some workout during this time of the pandemic and he loves the class. She is always in the best attitude, and willing to embrace any challenge. She is very professional, passionate and experienced fitness professionals. My son loves her. For me and my family the best.

         My husband and I have taken a variety of fitness classes with Nikki from aqua aerobics to circuit training to yoga.  I have also been a MAT (muscle activation technique) client of hers.  Besides being a genuinely nice person, she is extremely knowledgeable. She tailors her classes to the participants’ skill level and really focuses on form, so everyone gets the most out of the workout. Many instructors just expect you to mirror what they do, but Nikki explains the form in detail so you know you are doing it exactly right.  She also tells you why it’s important to strengthen those muscles. She shows modifications to ramp things up for students who can push themselves farther, or how to dial it down if needed.  If you have an injury, she’ll show how to work the same muscle group without aggravating your injury. My husband sometimes get leg cramps.  She told him what to do when he gets one and he was amazed at how quickly he got relief.  I have plantar fasciitis and she has given me advice on shoes!  I try the things she recommends and they really work.  Through our MAT sessions I saw an improvement in range of motion, strength in smaller muscles, and most importantly, heel pain relief.  Once she pointed out where my imbalances were, I could work on correcting them outside of our sessions.    Overall, I can’t say enough good things about Nikki!  Her knowledge of fitness and muscles is extensive and her sweet, kind demeanor makes her a joy to work with.

    When I Googled what makes a great Fitness instructor, I found the following:

    - Punctuality, preparation and professionalism.
    - Education, education, education.
    - Great communication skills.
    - The ability to motivate.
    - A sensitive and friendly approach.

    These traits describe Nikki to a tee. The first time you go to Nikki's class she will introduce herself and then ask you your name. After that, she greets you at the beginning of every class. I have taken lots of different types of classes from Nikki: yoga, water aerobics, strength training, abs class, total body workout, TRX and many more. With each class, she is totally prepared for what she is teaching and no 2 classes are ever the same. She will structure the class to work different types of muscles. While she encourages you to push yourself she also gives options for people at different levels of athleticism. I love taking Nikki's classes and I'm definitely more toned and feel healthier after doing them.

    Nikki is the ultimate fitness instructor. I enjoy the variety of classes she teaches, her enthusiasm and knowledge. She teaches modifications for all fitness levels and you feel as if the class is directed at you. We are so lucky to participate in her fitness classes at the gym and are grateful that we can work out with her on-line. She has helped make these difficult times a little better.

    Response by Nikki Garriepy on Jun 03, 2020

    Thank you, Lynne! Glad we were able to get through this together.
