Hi, I’m Nikky and I help people with heart conditions, who are ready to get back to exercise and regain their confidence and zest for life so that they can get back to playing with the kids and feeling themselves again. I do this through personalised heart healthy exercise programs that are safe, fun and effective. 

I believe you can (and should) enjoy your exercise, and even miss it when you can’t do it! I empower my clients to live the best and fullest life possible through exercise and healthy lifestyle choices.

I have been working as an Exercise Physiologist since 2012 and I am so proud of  how my work positively impacts the lives of my clients.  Working with those who are feeling unsure about their health and fitness and helping them feel better, pain free and giving them a new lease of life is what I do best.

I love the wins my clients share with me. Things such as: 

“Being able walk without getting breathless or tired”

“Being able to tie my shoelaces easily” 

“Holding up my nephew so he can pick which ice cream flavour he wants”  

“Actually missing going to classes if I can’t make it”

I have a Doctorate of Philosophy in Exercise Physiology from Murdoch University. I studied the effects of single-leg cycling on heart disease risk. Research is a strong passion of mine and I love combining my research with my clinic, to give everyone access to the most up-to-date, evidence-based care. 

My strongest personal motivator is a keen desire to help others live their best lives. I set up Heart Health and Fitness in 2018 to help improve the cardiac rehabilitation services to patients living in Perth, Western Australia. I have recently added online access to increase the reach of my services so that I may improve the lives of more people living with heart disease and ultimately reduce the burden of this disease.

Whether I am teaching classes or doing one on one assessments and consultations, I base my achievements on the triumphs of others.  I truly believe that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
