Here it goes: A behind the scenes look at what makes moi, Nikki tick, why I may or may not know a thing or two, and why I love being part of the most awesome company family of people on the planet — aka MyBodyTutor.
In my past life, I was an Executive Chef for the Asian themed restaurant chain P.F. Chang’s. Most of my days were spent throwing food, catching knives, and putting out fires (some literal, some figurative).
After 10+ years the stress built up and I began to develop a pretty unhealthy relationship with food. Turning to food as a way to relieve the stress I felt from an increasingly unfulfilling career. Food became a reward for my long hours, hard work, and prioritizing everything else ahead of my own needs. Every day I woke up and went through the motions of yet another day. I saw the difficulty in every opportunity. Was I living? –ish. But deep down I knew there had to be more to life than merely living. I felt like I was sleepwalking and I wanted to wake up and thrive. I was comfortable with my struggles (until I wasn’t) because they were familiar and certain.
I accidentally (a serendipitous discovery indeed) stumbled upon the MyBodyTutor website and I never saw what was coming next. I was a client of MyBodyTutor for a short time before I reached a point of no return. As a client of MyBodyTutor, going through the process was a precipice for incredible things in my life. Initially, I joined with the hopes of some fat loss and increased energy. However, MyBodyTutor gave me so much more than that. I felt like I was a part of something extraordinary and wanted nothing more than to give back to others what my Tutor gave to me—a chance to reclaim and re-engage my life. I rediscovered old passions, tried new things, failed, succeeded, failed some more and found a new enthusiasm for LIFE!
So I buried my head and my heart in all things health and nutrition. I went back to school to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and a Certified Personal Trainer. Then one day I woke up and proved to everyone just how crazy I am was. I retired my chef coat and left my safe and secure full-time corporate job.
Why? Because I knew being a BodyTutor is what I was meant to do with my life. Because I truly believe that the best way I can spend my time is to help you transform your life the way this process have transformed mine. Not only your body (which we will certainly do), but also your life. Because helping you get from where you are now to where you want to be excites me more than I can ever put into words.
Helping YOU live your life to the fullest potential is why I go to sleep at night and why I get up in the morning. Strange? Perhaps. But true.
When you walk into a room differently because you start feeling amazing about the way you feel. It changes everything. And I want you to feel that. More than anything.
If you ask me (and you are asking me, right?) the world needs more awesome. Welp, it turns out that starting with a healthy mind + body IS the way to living a more awesome life.
Of course starting anything is easy. If you are anything like me than you have probably started 10’s or maybe 100’s of programs. All sorts of programs.
BUT if you want start your last program, if you want to gain a family that is 1000% dedicated to creating the most awesome version of you there is, then MyBodyTutor is for you.
Truth: What I learned with MyBodyTutor transformed my life forever — and it can transform yours too.
What can I promise you? That you are in for the ride of a lifetime. This isn’t your typical online, auto-bot experience. I promise you my daily and highly personalized (with a little personality) support and accountability. I will work tirelessly for our success. Yes, our success. We are a team. I don’t succeed unless you do. I am not your typical health and fitness bot either. I am not perfect. It’s been my darkest times, my failures, and ultimately my comebacks that made me who I am today. I love what I do. And I love who I do it with. I believe we have the power to change the world. And there is no doubt in my mind that you + me + MyBodyTutor = unprecedented results. You aren’t part of a program; you are part of a family.
It would be my greatest honor to join you on your journey and transformation. Together we can make anything happen.
