Here's what our clients are saying about fitness for life.

Nikki speaks truth—truth we all need to hear to accept our bodies, to motivate us to MOVE our bodies, and to free us to focus on what’s important in life. And she relays the truth with genuine conviction, faith in you to achieve, and with great joy. She ALWAYS inspires me to be MY best. I think SHE’s the best!
— Susi B.
...Workouts are fun and varied. As a senior citizen I have strengths I did not know I had. Because of the variety I enjoy these sessions which are personalized. Personalized because we discuss my struggles and plan for success...
— Beverly M.
Nikki and her staff are personable, make working out fun, get to know what works for each person and customize the workouts to affect change in the body most efficiently. They make a custom music playlist based on the music you like to work out to!

Meet the Trainers

Nikki's Head Shot.jpg

Nikki Staab, Owner

I've been a certified personal trainer and studio owner since 2003. My experience
includes training in Muay Thai Kickboxing and the completion of ten triathlons, including one Olympic distance race. 

One of the reasons why my job is so important to me, is because I have firsthand experience with food and body issues. I spent many years drinking, smoking and sitting on the couch, after being diagnosed with both Binge Eating Disorder and Food Addiction. Now I am  passionate about sharing what I learned during my own journey to help others find freedom and comfort in their bodies.

I look forward to meeting you!

Erin's Headshot 1.jpg

Erin Pearson, Manager

I came to a career in the fitness industry, not as a lifelong athlete (I definitely wasn't!), but as someone who felt insecure in, and embarrassed by, my body. So, when a client walks in the door feeling uncomfortable or uncertain, I totally understand.

My journey with exercise began grudgingly. I knew I should exercise, so I did. But it ultimately did something much more important than just check one more "should" off my to-do list. It gave me confidence. It allowed me to be fully present for my life--to do the things I wanted to do. It taught me that I am tough and resilient. It uncovered my inner athlete, which I didn't believe existed. And it brought me a whole new career! One where I get to cheer other women on along their own fitness journeys. I hope you'll join us!
