Meet Nikky Hindle
Nikky Hindle’s diverse career as an athlete, nutrition counselor, and personal trainer is the result of a lifelong passion for fitness and nutrition. A native of State College, Pennsylvania, Nikky is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition with a minor in Kinesiology. She subsequently completed her dietetic internship through Cedar Crest College, where her work experience included rotations at Penn State Sports Nutrition, UPMC Altoona, and Penn State Cooperative Extension.
Nikky is both a Registered Dietitian (RD) and a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certified by the National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF). Additionally, Nikky is a member of the National Physique Committee (NPC), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), and the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition (SCAN) dietetic practice group.
Nikky enjoys working with her clients to develop healthy relationships with food, exercise, and self. She believes that each person deserves their own personalized recommendations and nutrition advice, because no two people present with the exact same background, lifestyle, and dietary preferences. At NOVA Sports Nutrition, there is no one-size-fits-all approach; instead, each counseling session, meal plan, and workout plan is tailored to the individual.
Specialty Practice Areas
Nikky specializes in nutrition counseling in several areas, including sports nutrition for amateur, high school, and collegiate athletes; medical nutrition therapy for diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and eating disorders; and general healthy nutrition for individuals looking to gain muscle, lose fat, or attain optimal health and vitality.
Walking the Walk
In her own workouts, Nikky emphasizes muscle building and aerobic conditioning to elevate her performance as a physique, strength, and endurance athlete. Nikky has completed a number of 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons, as well as four Spartan Races. Additionally, Nikky is a Nationally Qualified NPC Bikini Athlete, appearing most recently at the NPC Jay Cutler Classic. Nikky’s firsthand experience with a variety of training techniques and exercise modalities provides her clients with the opportunity to receive highly customized training and nutrition plans tailored to their unique fitness goals.
