My name is Nicola Smith (was Reilly), I am a Personal Trainer, Nutrition and Lifestyle coach. I have been involved in the wellness industry now since 2002. I studied at the University of Otago, where I gained my Bachelor of Physical education, majoring in Sports Science and Exercise Prescription. Throughout my studies I worked one on one personal training with clients while I continued to learn. After finishing my degree I discovered I needed to know more, so I continued to train clients while taking my study further. I went on to be certified through the Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology (C.H.E.K) Institute as a Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach level 2 and then went on to gain more qualifications with the C.H.E.K Institute in relation to program design, scientific core and back training. I am now also a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner which has help take my knowledge to a new level. With a successful client base around the world with, the online gym, and online personal training. I work as a Holistic Personal trainer, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach. I offer both one on one based and online Nutrition, Exercise and Lifestyle Coaching Programs.

I specialise in helping clients achieve real health, functional well being and do this by treating each client uniquely and working from the inside out.

I have been extremely lucky to work with some amazing people and learn from them also. My passion is to help people achieve optimal health and well being. I am not your typical personal trainer, I look at my clients holistically. Create health from the food that they eat, to the movement they create over to the lifestyle they lead. Without looking at the complete package optimal health cannot be created. is my way of sharing what I can with you. I want you to achieve health and wellbeing.

There is so much information out there that is wrong. Conventional Nutrition and the food pyramid have lead us down a path of obesity and disease. I want to bring clarity and help make it easy for you to understand what you need to do to achieve health and well being. I follow a traditional approach to nutrition, using traditional principles of the Weston A Price Foundation and follow a real food approach to your diet. However this approach isn’t completely black and white, I go further than this, every client has there own metabolic type and specific dietry requirements. I work with my clients to help them understand what foods work for them. From helping to heal digestive disorders, weight loss, weight gain to performance nutrition. Once you have the food right and your body is in an optimal place for health and well being, I then work with you to bring correct movement and help with improving lifestyle. Doing this in any other order will lead you to bigger problems later and you not achieving your goals.

By training with me you will increase vitality, decrease stress and sculpt the body of your dreams. I take a look at you as an individual and teach you how to avoid disease and stress, by taking a look at your body as a “system of systems.” I teach you how disease and stress are preventable through healthy eating habits, lifestyle management and appropriate types of exercise.

You will understand why every meal, every bout of exercise and every late night has a hormonal consequence on your body. You will learn how you are what you eat. Every cell in your body is created by the food that you eat, and we are all different and we all have different nutritional requirements, whether it is healing, prevention or performance you are unique
