NIKKI DUNLOP( she/her)
My name is Nikki (she/her). I'm a queer, former athlete turned holistic health nerd. I've spent the better part of a decade training business professionals and athletes, and the last six years teaching Human Anatomy, Leadership, Biomechanics and Functional Training for the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
My passion for fitness began with my own dream of playing college hockey. I spent five years with the NAIT Women's Hockey Team, winning two back to back championships, setting fitness records and being named an alternate captain for multiple seasons.
During my time with NAIT, I graduated from the school of health and life sciences with an honours diploma in Personal Fitness Training and certifications as a CSEP Personal Trainer, an NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, and an honours degree in business technology.
So how did I go from all of that to holistic health nerd?
Well, it took a few of my own personal crisis to realize that there is so much more to fitness and working out than just picking up heavy shit and putting it down..
