She thoroughly enjoys the challenge of variety in the clients she treats. The profound effect exercise can have on many pathologies and conditions is something Nikar finds incredibly rewarding.

Nikar believes that without the integration of  the most up to date research, the client’s values and goals, and her clinical experience, the absolute benefits of the exercise program cannot be obtained. She is a firm believer that in order to significantly improve health and quality of life, exercise prescription needs to be individualised, transferable and tailored to the client. She endeavours to build quality relationships with her clients and equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed – both as a patient and in life.
