More about Nikki:


It took a lot of hard work for Nikki to get from small town Pennsylvania to making fitness videos in New York City and Mexico.

Nikki got interested in fitness at Sayre Public High School, where she ran track and made the cheerleading squad. She got scholarships to attend Syracuse University and made the cheering squad, which allowed her to go to the games and travel. She spent hours every day practicing and learned about choreography.

When she got engaged, Nikki knew she had to get back into shape and planned a small destination wedding and honeymoon. That is when she started the first of many fitness certifications.

She realized that there was no instruction manual or video that was tailored for destination wedding brides. She started teaching exercise classes. She figured if other people were depending on her to show up and get them in shape, that would get her back in shape too.

She went on to write wedding planning articles for wedding magazines. (See NikkiBeach press page.)

Nikki’s group fitness focus is cardio-kickboxing, step aerobics interval training, muscle sculpting, exercising “on the ball”, “bandcamp” (exercise bands), arms and abs drills, and “bootycamp” (for your backside). She’s worked in fitness centers across the Northeast, and for a non-profit organization called, which helps needy women get exercise.

She now works at Crunch Fitness in Manhattan as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor, and in April 2008 will be taping a fitness video called NikkiBeachBride, so she can help brides plan their dream weddings from the inside out.

Nikki has also provided fitness advice in Military Spouse Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Woman’s Day, Women’s Health, and USA Today.


Always consult your physician before starting or modifying a fitness program.
