Below are the excerpts from a candid conversation between the Sugary Six Pack Fitness Coach – Niki and Namita Nayyar, President – Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You started running at an early age in the 7th grade and competed in Division 1. After graduation you got into yoga, cross fit, weight lifting and HIIT and later took the ACE personal training certification. You reached the pinnacle of success by running a successful website called the Sugary Six Pack (www.sugarysixpack.com) and have been providing useful information to women on health and fitness. Tell us more about your journey that took you to the world of fitness?
Ms. Niki: I’ve always loved being active. When I was younger my parents had us try everything so I’ve ice skated, played basketball, softball, danced and tried quite a few other things and in middle school I finally settled on running and stuck with it. After that ended I felt a little bit lost in my fitness life, I had never really had to decide what to do for workouts or make time in the day to train since it has always been a practice I had to show up for. One thing I knew for sure was that my main form of training was no longer going to be running! I loved using free weights and got in to cross fit for a while but once I discovered HIIT it was over for me, I had found what I needed. It’s so customizable and has so many benefits. After realizing that I was realy passionate about health and fitness I wanted to share it with others and help them to get excited about it too so I became a personal trainer. I use some form of HIIT training with almost all of my clients now! It keeps things interesting.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What is the story behind the unique and fascinating name “Sugary Six Pack”?
Ms. Niki: I’ve always had a massive sweet tooth. I used to just crush desserts in the dining hall during college and candy was a food group for me when I was younger. The name was something to combine my love of fitness with my love of sweets only now I’m attempting to make sweets that are a little better for me and use ingredients that don’t leave me in a sugar crash..at least most of the time!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What is your motivation to take a multi-faceted personality of a personal trainer, fitness coach, fitness writer, nutritional expert and an online fitness blogger?
Ms. Niki: I love sharing what I’m passionate about. It’s the best feeling in the world when someone tells you that your workouts or guide has made a positive impact on their life. I’m blessed to be able to do what I love while helping people and I can’t have any better motivation than that!
