How would you like an at-home work out that worked and actually made you feel good, instead of sore?
Homes don’t get built without foundations. That’s common knowledge.
What isn’t common knowledge? Is that fitness doesn’t either.
Whether your dream is to slip more comfortably into those tight jeans, be able to give your all to that zumba class, or just get out of bed in the morning with a spring and not a sigh, one thing’s for sure:
The secret to good fitness? Is a good fitness foundation.
Your body is made to move, but when life has gifted you a few aches and pains, or even a couple of injuries, movement can feel less natural than it did in your teenage years.
Sure, Jane Fonda made it look easy, but you’re starting to wonder if it’s even possible to feel fit without also feeling pain. (Hint: it totally is.)
Fun fact: You might not know that Jane Fonda went on to have not one but two hip replacements. I like to think it was because she didn’t work with me.
For you, feeling fit is about much more than six-pack abs, a number on a scale, or being model thin. (Oh, and if you hear the phrase ‘no pain, no gain’ again, you might throw a dumbbell through a window.)
Feeling fit is about more than how you look in a mirror. It’s about how you feel in a moment.
The problem is, right now, those moments look something like this:
All you want is to be able to exercise, without pain, without fear of injury, and with results. Real ones that you can see and feel. Is that really too much to ask?
No, it’s not! It is possible to:
Enter NNL Private Training:
Online Pilates and fitness training for the independent woman who isn’t lured by hot rooms, green juices, or workouts with the word ‘insanity’ in them, but wants a body she loves – and that she feels loves her back. Because that’s what self-care is really about, right?
This is for the woman who wants results, without pain, delivered in her living room.
Hey there! I’m Nikki Naab-Levy and that’s exactly what I’ve dedicated my career to making happen. I’ve got 10+ years experience in teaching fitness and movement to people just like you who are seriously over the idea that exercise automatically means risking an injury or living with pain.
You know when your mind says yes but your body says hell no? It’s frustrating! I’ve been there too and I totally get it. That’s why I’m here to help you develop your fitness foundation so movement that feels difficult now will feel different later. (And by different, I mean soooo much better.)
What NNL Private Training involves:

Then you can choose from Sprint or 5k sessions. Here are the deets for both.

- One private one hour session ($150)
- Five private one hour sessions ($625) $125 ea*
- Eight private one hour sessions ($960) $120 ea*

Fitness foundation is either building back the strength and stability in your body after an injury, so you don’t re-injure yourself, or creating a movement foundation that allows you to gradually add load. It’s suitable if you’re new to exercise, want to improve your general fitness, or to work towards peak performance without getting injured. Because injuries are so not fun.
Sure do! Go get your Starting Line intro session.
I can’t guarantee that won’t happen at some point(!) but it’s so much more than that. We might work on the form of your squats and lunges, do some stability training for your weaker areas (you know, the ones that cause the discomfort), or even have some fun with a foam roller to relieve muscular aches and tension. Those are just a few examples. I promise you’ll feel physically different after you’ve done the exercises – and I’ve been told that even if they seem easy at first, they’re actually sneaky hard. And that equals results.
It depends on your current circumstances and the exercises we do together, but hard work doesn’t automatically translate to dripping uncontrollably from the temples. You don’t have to sweat your guts out for my exercises to work. You don’t have to feel strain for my exercises to work. And if you think you might get bored, book yourself for that Starting Line intro session and you’ll soon realise I won’t let that happen!
All you need to do is download Skype to the computer or tablet you’d like to use for our session. It’s fast, pain-free (I like that theme), and won’t cost you a penny.
"How lucky is Seattle to land Nikki Naab-Levy? In my opinion, winning-the-trifecta lucky. She is passionate about self-care and about sharing its benefits with as many people as possible, she has an extensive knowledge of how therapeutic movement helps all bodies--from the extreme fitness fanatic to the worker bee sitting at a desk for hours, AND she has a WONDERFUL sense of humor. Personally, her classes have not only helped my aches and pains, but have provided me with valuable self-help information to maintain wellness."
"You will learn a lot and you will get results."
"I have worked with Nikki for years - first learning movement to address pain, misalignment and instability in the body, then as a manual therapy (massage) client. Nikki has an eagle eye for movement issues in the body, and even a crazy ear (my boyfriend saw her and his shoulder popped while she was turned away from him and she asked, "Was that your right or left side?"). Her approach is pragmatic, yet her touch is still intuitive and gentle. She also happens to be a continuing education junkie, so no client will feel like he or she is getting a routine treatment. She will determine to the best of her ability what intervention is best at that particular time, truly listening to and assessing the client. The space is a vibrant, clean, open and small studio that easily transitions between bodywork, pilates and MELT needs. In a city teeming with massage therapy practices and pilates studios, the space is truly is a gem because of Nikki's unique training and orientation, and the excellence of service."
"I love how Nikki is able to explain complex terms in a way that are easy to understand, and how she focuses on long-term common sense solutions instead of a quick fix. Whether in her group classes or tips on social media, her advice is straightforward and easy to follow. I love that she's not a fitness guru - she just wants to help people feel their best and be their best, whatever that means to them."
"I had some significant back pain that several medical specialists were unable to relieve. I chose to work with Nikki, because she was very knowledgeable about body mechanics. After a few sessions with Nikki, my back pain was eliminated and hasn’t returned. I love her easy demeanor and willingness to provide additional information that might be of help. Her social media sites are also very helpful for many things."
"Being a dancer and working in the fitness industry for years, I was in chronic pain and desperate for a solution. I realized that what I was doing was simply not working, let alone sustainable. The results I have seen from my sessions with Nikki are too many to name! I always leave feeling better than when I came in and with a new set of tools to manage my vast array of aches of pains. I've had a huge improvement in low back pain, knee pain, muscle cramping, and mobility in my spine and hips. Even people who don't have aches and pains (or won't admit it) could benefit from working with Nikki. She’s inspired me to take time for self-care. This has carried over into other aspects of my life and provoked reflection on how I treat myself. It is more than just a massage or foam rolling... it's a step toward better mental and emotional health as well."
