Hi, welcome to my website!
My name is Karina Nielsen, originally from Denmark but now New Zealand based Personal Trainer, Nutritional Consultant, Pilates Instructor and Fitness Model.
I moved to the UK in 2009 to study a degree in Contemporary Dance which enabled me to work and perform with incredible choreographers and companies such as Protein Dance, UDC Universal Dance Creation, DAZL and Phoenix Dance Theatre.
During my dance career i found a particular interest in Health and Fitness and decided to expand my knowledge with a 2 year research project in Nutrition and Health as well as becoming a level 3 Personal Trainer, Pilates instructor, Exercise Referral specialist and Pre/Post Natal Trainer.
Through these skills and qualifications I have developed an unique approach to a fit and healthy lifestyle that makes you feel good, look good, happy, healthy and confident in your own skin. We are all different and therefore I work closely with each individual to monitor progress and give correct advise and support in order to succeed with their goals.
Im truly passionate about helping others and fortunate to have worked with a big range of clients all with different fitness levels, goals and lifestyle. It’s a real pleasure for me to see clients succeed and be a part of their health and fitness journey - it keeps me motivated and inspired to reach my full potential too!
In 2014 i did my first Bikini Fitness competition within the federation UKBFF, I placed 1st at the East of England regional qualifier and recently got 4th place at the National Championships. As a self coached athlete I apply all the knowledge attained to my own body and can therefore provide my clients with first hands experience on what it takes to get a ‘bikini body’.
Whatever your goals are, you can become a champion with me!
I wish to inspire and share my passion for health and fitness with you all.
Happy and Healthy living,
