Nikki Warren

Kaia FIT
Founder/ CEO
South Lake Tahoe
Watching her infant son, Kai, struggle for survival with life-threatening birth defects, Nikki Warren found her inspiration. "We're all fighting for our lives," she discovered. She brings that philosophy to the thousands of women enrolled in her fitness-training program, Kaia FIT, named after her now-healthy son. From her own life experiences- getting kicked out of the house as a pregnant 16-year-old to building and running several successful businesses, including a fitness franchise boasting 56 locations- Nikki learned the value of hard work. More importantly, she learned how to thrive. As a Kaia FIT coach, Nikki trains hundreds of fitness professionals a year- bringing her functional program to women across the country. She loves inspiring women to live their best lives. Nikki shares her experience and knowledge with businesses and philanthropist groups across the country through her "Thrive for Life: Beyond Surviving, Enjoy Thriving" speaking platform. She has presented to dozens of organizations including Tedx (coming 10/3/2015), IDEA World Fitness, Whole Foods Markets and Vistage International, Impact Women's Conference and many more. Nikki has more than 15 years’ experience of public speaking on health, fitness and nutrition, and is a main presenter of weekly webinars with more than 50 fitness professionals. She has coached for 20 years, and is certified as a Core Power Yoga Coach, USA Triathlon Coach, USA Track and Field coach, Crossfit coach, ACE and Nesta Personal Trainer, among others.
