Nikki Snyder grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan; where she was active in track & field, cheerleading, and dance. In 2008, Nikki lost the most important person in her life, her father, unexpectedly to heart disease, when he was only 46 years old. Nikki had a tough time dealing with such a profound loss, that's when she decided to honor her father by helping others with their health and wellness. She found Zumba Fitness in March 2009 and never looked back. Not only did Zumba help Nikki lose over 30 pounds that had crept up on her since graduating high school, it also brought back her passion for dance. Since then she has been licensed in every Zumba Fitness program available (Zumba, Zumba Gold, ZumbAtomic, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, and Zumba in the Circuit).
Continuing with her love of fitness, in March 2010, Nikki was certified as a group fitness instructor with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). In February of 2011 she took her Level 1 training with Yogafit. Nikki finds much joy when others tell her how much she has inspired them to make a healthy lifestyle change.
May 2011, Nikki was certified as a WERQ™ instructor. WERQ™ is a fiercely fun new dance fitness workout fusing today's hottest pop, rock, and hip hop music with easy dance routines designed for torching calories. This ain't no party....be ready to WERQ!
