A Garage Workout with Nicci

Our Costa Mesa Instructor of the Month for August, Nicci Morris, lives by the motto, “SWEAT EVERY DAY”! You’d think that would be easy for someone who teaches indoor cycling, but for a stay-at-home mom, it’s sometimes impossible to go take your favorite class when you can’t find childcare.

Not a problem for our Nicci. A self-motivator like no other, Nicci is the queen of the home workout. She invited us along to so see just how easy, efficient, and convenient working out at home can be.

With two young, active, girls on the go, Harper and Finley, Nicci’s schedule is always up in the air. She’s often running to the beach, the pool, the OC fair, or hanging at the playground; she’s never sure when she’ll get a free moment to sweat, so when there IS a lull in the household, Nicci snags it; pops on her sneakers and grabs a home workout.

There’s just no beating the convenience of home: all your clothes are already there, food, water, and the best: your OWN shower afterward.

Nicci’s main “studio” is her garage. She has decked it out with everything she needs to get the job done; including her own personal “spotter” who provides encouragement and popsicle breaks.

“I get my playlists ready for the week ahead and jam out to them every time I work out.  I love to start out with running on the treadmill while cuing my songs for spin!  My neighbors think I’m nuts but it helps with my teaching!  I’ll incorporate some TRX, floor exercises, free weights, medicine balls,  squats +lunges, and then  I might add HIIT training.” 

What matters most to Nicci is being with her family. Working out in her garage allows her to both “sweat every day” and not miss a moment with the ones that are most important to her.

It’s this tenacity and passion that make her such a Saddle Room favorite.

Remember you can now sweat with Nicci every Monday, Wednesday + Friday at noon in our Gritty Quicky classes at noon. Her Wednesday classes are only $10 for the month of August. Be sure to purchase the Instructor of the Month class before you book.
