Niki was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, but moved to Chicago July 2018. A dancer her entire life, she graduated with a BA in Dance from Tulane University. Her dane and New Orleans connections helped lead to her fitness career. In 2015, she began competing in the National Physique Committee's Bikini Division, leading to three seasons of competitions (and more to come!). She started teaching group fitness classes in Cycle, Barre, HIIT, cardio kickboxing TRX, Versaclimber and Megaformer in 2016. Moving to Chicago has allowed her the opportunity to grow into a stronger instructor and leader, which is something she believes we are all able to do through fitness: grow into stronger and more confident versions of ourselves.
