Nicole Moneer to release autobiography June 7th, available for pre-order now.
CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach and International Federation of Body Building Pro Nicole Moneer has dedicated her entire career to helping people improve their bodies, minds, relationships with God, and senses of self-worth and confidence. Using her hard gained knowledge and expertise of eating right, exercising, and inward reflection, she has helped them to achieve both spiritual and emotional wellness. Nicole started helping people when, as a four year old, she donated bone marrow to save her brother’s life. In the years since, she has lived to better and enrich the lives of others. However, she would not get to that point until going through much pain and personal suffering.
Nicole was not always the pinnacle of health and fitness that countless people look up to. It has been a long, uphill climb. From the day she was born up until her early 30s, Nicole has been forced to deal with various infections, physical pain and discomfort, fatigue, asthma attacks and digestive issues, all of which kept her in a consistent cycle of prescription drug, antibiotics and medication usage. Howe
ver, this only made things worse. Her relief came after she ended her dependency on prescription drugs and began to make better eating choices. Moreover, she curbed her alcohol and tobacco consumption and smoking, and went through detox to rid her body of harmful toxins. Also, she began to drop harmful people and relationships from her life, and started taking natural supplements with the help of her integrative physician.
While she has spent her young life keeping her body active with dance, cheer and performance, Nicole will be the first to tell you that you can look healthy on the outside, but still be going through inner turmoil. In her own words, you can be “skinny fat.” Even though she grew up the daughter of a doctor and a nurse, the abusive, neglectful nature of her father and her mother’s oversight of healthy eating meant that Nicole would have to come to terms with her health and turn it around on her own. That is exactly what she did.
Nicole’s commitment to health made her career as a professional fitness competitor and trainer the most sensible step. Her early years cheering on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls as a World Champion Bulls Cheerleader with the Luvabulls gave way to her start in competition. Competing in Ms. Fitness USA, the Arnold Sports Festival, and National Physique Committee events, Nicole worked her way up to Pro status with the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness. Fittingly, she ended her competing career with the Sheru Classic in Pune, India, where her father was born.
Today, even though she is retired from competing in a bikini, she offers unparalleled fitness, health, and life guidance and support to prospective and active competitors as a personal trainer and life coach. She improves the lives of her clients and all those she encounters every day with her inspirational story and advice. Of course, she has the unique experience going through chronic health issues, familial strain and emotionally draining relationships, and still coming out on the other side.
As Nicole strengthened her body, the lessons she would learn through her relationships strengthened her spirit. As a competitor, she had so-called “friends” who seemed to care more about competing and petty drama than supporting one another. She also had relationships with men who were often immature, prideful and dependent on substances. However, each and every figure in Nicole’s life has helped reveal to her the inner strength she has always had as well as the issues within her own self and past she knew she must face. All the disappointments and negative relationships only fueled her passion to use her experiences as a guide for others, to show people the value of honesty, open speech and self-reflection when trying to sustain relationships. Nicole could see the damage inflicted when communication breaks down, especially in the cracks of her parents’ marriage. While it has been a bumpy road with many “life lessons” learned, it has brought her closer to the next step of her journey with the start of her own family.
Nicole Moneer has come a long way from that little girl born sick with an upper respiratory infection, bullied in elementary school and plagued by internal health issues. But, she is still the same Nicole Moneer who saved her brother’s life at four years old, loves her Indian heritage, and excels at expressing her strength through her body, at first with dance and cheer, and later in the form of health and fitness. Her struggles and successes have been a source of inspiration for her friends, family, client and countless fans. She is determined to help everyone she encounters uncover their true potential as well. She has been able to help so many with her focus on eating healthy, taking natural supplements, tailoring your exercise routine to fit you, and cutting out negative people and influences in your life. At the same time, she emphasizes opening up your heart to God and the guidance that He can provide. The ability to improve our lives is in our hands. It just takes someone like Nicole Moneer to help show us just what we can do.
