Nikki Gregory
Instructor

Nicole, a.k.a.  “Nikki”, began her journey in the fitness industry at the tender age of 16.  She convinced her mom to join Elaine Powers, one of the first gyms specifically for women in the Detroit area.  Since then she has never looked back. 

Nicole has been passionate about exercise, nutrition and the total well being of our bodies from day one.  During her journey people have asked Nicole how she manages to “work in fitness” to her busy life.  The answer she gave is, “This is a lifestyle.  We only have two choices. We either incorporate wellness into our lives, or we don’t, and we accept the consequences of that choice”.

In 2012, Nicole decided to add Massage Therapy to her journey because she knew how important it was to allow the body to “let go” in order to heal itself.  She experienced first hand relaxing massage therapy during her first pregnancy.  Nicole  truly believes  that because of the massage and her exercise regimen along  with proper nutrition was the reason for both of her pregnancies being very smooth and uneventful. 

Nicole has accomplished obtaining her Stott Pilates and Barre Intensity Certifications and is an AFAA G.E.A.R. Cycling Instructor, Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor.
