7 years ago Nikki started her own business, Fuzzbox Designs Ltd, a digital agency producing websites, graphics and social media campaigns. Whilst developing her business, she created a small Facebook group called Wairarapa Women in Business. The group now has 1000+ business women members.
Known for her musical pursuits with her band SPANK and more recently her fitness journey, Nikki has lost over 68kg and has run 5 half marathons. As part of her journey she created Nikki’s CrossFit Journey, a fitness VLOG. She has recently qualified for the Masters League Regional Cup as a masters functional fitness athlete and has her sights set on improving her athletic skills. Training part time as an Apprentice Personal Trainer with SASSfit, she is keen to help others realise their fitness goals and has ambitions of combining this with her web and marketing skills.
Couch to Confidence
Nikki will take you along her journey, highlighting the highs and the lows of losing a large amount of weight and becoming an athlete. At 132kg she struggled to sing her own songs, walk to the end of the drive and was beginning to feel the effects of her weight on her joints and her general health. Coming from a position of feminism and body positivity, her journey was not about how good she would look but about how she could perform better. Her increased health and fitness has lead to increased confidence throughout her life and has made an impact on so much more than just her physical wellbeing. Come along and share her journey.
