Nikki Gregg, the founder of NRG, is a fitness junkie and icon of the SUP world. She’s also more toned than your printer cartridge. Nikki began her career helping to pioneer Stand Up Paddling, eventually built her own company, and has dedicated her life to playing in the great outdoors.
“It wasn’t some big thing,” she explains about her pioneer status. Intrigued by the sport and competitive by nature, Nikki explored the then unheard of concept of SUP. She was feeding a passion that has consumed much of her professional life. Even today, she is constantly striving to perfect —and maintain— her technique while experimenting with her environment. As a result, Nikki has conquered all forms of stand up paddling; from fitness,
surfing, racing, flatwater, open ocean paddling and even whitewater.
As a professional athlete and rogue adventurer, Nikki has long been fascinated by body mechanics and health. She’s the rare trainer who doesn’t give you a hard time for wanting a few Oreos. It’s about getting enough sleep and eating right 80% of the time. From training clients and nutritional advising, to SUP fitness DVDs and lifestyle coaching, Nikki’s company reflects her joy and intensity about smart living.
Born in Ohio, it wasn’t until her late teens that Nikki discovered mountains, snow, Colorado and Lake Tahoe. She
excelled in alpine athletics, but after a haggard snowboarding incident, moved to Hawaii where she adapted her extreme-sports fetish to warmer climates. She continues to travel the globe and is always looking for what’s next.
