Our company opened its doors on December 1st, 2016. Directors Niall Mullen and Katy Tanham established Nikafit Studios with a clear purpose. This purpose was to specialise in the provision of world class personal training in small groups of 2-4 people per coach.
Our system was designed to match the needs of the dynamic marketplace that is the fitness industry. Through years of experience it has become increasingly evident that the traditional 1-on-1 personal training model had limited potential as an effective strategy to get long term results. The higher costs associated with 1-on-1 coaching proved a massive barrier to entry for a high percentage of the population. This resulted in the majority of fitness enthusiasts viewing 1-on-1 personal training as a short term solution after which they could continue their training by themselves which for the most part simply didn’t work.
Although people were aware that personal training was indeed the best way to get results, the 1-on-1 setting simply wasn’t sustainable for most. Instead they either opted for the lower budget “bootcamp” or impersonal commercial gym type package (sometimes both). While we recognise as a company that there is indeed a place for such training options, the detailed structure, accountability, progressive programming and expert coaching that our small group personal training system provides produces superior training results and was built around the needs of the client.
People all over the world are unhappy with their appearance. Year after year they try to change their lifestyle only to fail time and time again because they don’t have access to the support and coaching they need. The client needs high quality personal training without the extremely high price tag. This left a void in the marketplace and Small Group Personal Training is a system purposely built to fill that void.
Who we are?
Nikafit (pronounced knee-ka-fit ) Studios, Wicklow’s newest personal training gym are a team of highly motivated, educated and dedicated personal trainers that have already begun to change lives through fitness in the local area. Our mission is to change the way fitness is done in Ireland and elevate the standards of personal training in the industry.
Ok so I know what you’re thinking: “Sounds great, but what the hell does Nikafit stand for?
Nikafit is two words combined together, “Nika” and “FIT” that represent who we are and what service we provide.
The first word Nika is simply a combination of the owners Niall & Katy’s first two initials. This represents not only our connection as a couple but our genuine shared belief that we were both born to help people be happier and healthier. Our goal is to change as many lives as possible through fitness leading to improved overall health, happiness, confidence, vitality and longevity.
What we do?
The second word FIT may seem obvious but it illustrates exactly what we do here at the gym. The letters F.I.T represent the Fully Integrated Training system we have developed to allow our clients to be consistent with their training, and actually deliver the results they want long term.
Our F.I.T system takes a multifaceted comprehensive approach to health & fitness. It is grounded on the principles that govern movement, weight loss, strength development and sports performance and can be adapted to suit people of all ages and abilities. All you have to do is keep show up, be consistent and our team of experts will take care of the rest.
How we do?
We deliver our F.I.T. system through our unique Small Group Personal Training model. Small group personal training is the future of the fitness industry. It provides all the advantages of personal training (high quality coaching, structure & accountability, individual attention, personalised programming) with the additional benefits of offering:
A fun but focused small group dynamic
A welcoming friendly atmosphere
A flexible timetable so you never miss a session
Unlimited nutrition coaching
Unlimited access to our members only group fitness & yoga classes
What makes the small group system even better is the fact that it is a fraction of the cost of 1-on-1 personal training. This allows clients to finally get back into a routine with their training as they now have a cost-effective, sustainable training option that can deliver real results in the long run, and not just another short term fix for something that needs a long term solution.
Let’s all be honest with each other. Most of us have tried some kind of fad diet / cover model magazine workout combination at some stage in an attempt to look and feel better but it didn’t produce the results we wanted. That’s because to get the results we really want we need to change our habits, behaviours and in turn our lifestyle but this doesn’t happen overnight!
Consistency over time is the key to success in all walks of life and systems are the best way to achieve this. "S.Y.S.T.E.M" stands for “Save Your-Self Time, Effort & Money” and here at Nikafit Studios that is exactly what we want to do for our members. We encourage clients not to waste money on gimmicks or fads but invest their hard earned income in a training team that care about them and have a proven track record of success in the industry.
We strongly believe that the majority of training enthusiasts are being short changed by fitness professionals all over the country. Our mission is to transform the way people think about fitness and redefine the personal training experience for the Irish market.
