This is an article that is currently running in a local San Diego Bridal Guide. Enjoy!
When it comes to the big day, brides-to-be really only want three things—the perfect groom, the perfect wedding, and the perfect dress. Nikol Klein, a San Diego Personal Trainer, is helping brides out there who want to add one more thing to that list of perfection—the perfect body.
Let’s face it, even the most svelte of brides includes “lose a few pounds” to her wedding planning to-do list. Every bride wants to be the best version of herself on the best day of her life, and that is where Nikol comes in.
As a personal trainer who caters only to women, Nikol devises her fitness routines to enhance the female form, focusing on toning and tightening. As a Professional Ballet Dancer, she offers brides-to-be workouts that incorporate graceful Ballet moves with unique exercises.
What distinguishes Nikol’s program from simply going to the gym or working with other personal trainers is something that is particularly appealing to busy brides. Nikol brings the gym to you.
So after a long day of working and micromanaging the planning of a wedding, brides don’t have to worry about mustering up the motivation to go to the gym because it’s there when they get home.
“In-home training is wonderful. I’ve found that my clients have better results and it forces me to get creative. I get bored, so I’m always trying to stay at the top of my game,” Nikol admits.
Currently in the process of training three brides, and being a bride-to-be herself, Nikol has gotten very familiar with what problem areas to focus on during her routines: “I target the upper body, because most brides go strapless. I combine Pilates work with simple, light weights.”
Along with herself, Nikol brings physioballs, free weights, elastic bands, mats, and kettle bells and has her clients do fun cardio blasts, like skipping on a treadmill.
As a part of her program, Nikol puts together nutrition guidelines and gives clients suggested recipes. She creates individual meal plans based on what her clients like and dislike.
Nikol also offers online training for the busiest of brides, which allows them to utilize the program even when she isn’t around.
Working mostly in the San Diego area, Nikol covers Del Mar, Leucadia, La Jolla, Cardiff, Carlsbad, Escondido, Encinitas, San Elijo, Rancho Santa Fe, Poway, Solana Beach, Scripps Ranch, La Mesa, and Chula Vista. She also trains with clients at her home gym for a discounted rate. To add even more incentive to look glowing in their gowns, Nikol is offering brides a special wedding package to get buff for the big day. They can choose a three month, six month or nine month long program which includes in-home training twice per week, and nutrition and online programs.
As for some quick tips on how to get in shape and stay slim for the big day, Nikol emphasizes that it is all about consistency and mindset: “You have to believe in it- whatever program you are doing.”
So set aside those seating charts, stop obsessing over the hors d’oeuvres, and let Nikol work her magic to help you look dazzling in your dress.
