Interview with Nikki from The Fitting Room

Interview with Nikki from The Fitting Room

Can you tell us a little bit about The Fitting Room?

The Fitting Room is a boutique women’s fitness studio delivering comprehensive, body changing workouts with a large variety of classes to help clients of all ages and fitness levels burn more calories, experience lean muscle growth, break through fitness plateaus, and achieve their personal bests in a fun and professional environment.

What separates your gym from the other gyms in the area?

Our supportive all female team are qualified fitness trainers who understand walking into a gym can be intimidating. The last thing we want is for people to feel self- conscious. That’s why our nurturing environment is supervised at all times catering for women of all ages and fitness levels, young and old we are always there to help motivate you or answer any questions you may have. Along with offering personal training, group classes and nutrition advice we are also very child friendly and have a free kids area to make exercise more convenient for mums.

How did you get into the industry?

I studied to be a health and fitness professional because of my fascination in human body movement and my passion for fitness and exercise. I always wanted a career working and helping people to better themselves so this industry allows me to combine all of that together. I also love how rewarding it is seeing clients reach their goals and witnessing them achieve life changing results.

What are some tips in helping people stay focused and adhering to an exercises program?

Take baby steps. You would never try to run 10 kms on day one, right? When you do too much too soon, you’ll end up sore, injured, and discouraged.

Take it easy as you get started. Set yourself short term and long term goals… Weekly, monthly and 6 monthly goals and write them down, then continually remind yourself why you started in the first place.

Mix it up. Do different types of workouts to keep things interesting and to exercise different muscle groups. switch between machines and free weights when you strength-train. Try different classes you don’t have to reinvent your entire routine every week, but you do want to shift it around a little.
