About The FitNic
Nicci Francis is an AFAA-certified Group Fitness Instructor, ACE-certified Personal Trainer and Weight Management Specialist, and NASM-certified Stretching and Flexibility Coach. She is a licensed Zumba@ instructor (including Zumba Gold@, Zumba Kids/Kids Jr.®, Zumba Glutes®, and Aqua Zumba®); licensed STRONG Nation™ instructor; and licensed MixxedFit® instructor.
Nicci is also a high school librarian in Piedmont, Oklahoma, where she lives with her husband and two of the best kids anyone could ask for.
A semi-reformed couch potato, Nicci has completed five half-marathons to date, even after swearing off running ever again after her first half was completed in 2005. Twelve years later, she was convinced to try again. She is currently training for her 6th half marathon.
Her interests include running, lifting heavy things, punching and kicking imaginary opponents (preferably to a good beat), dancing, reading, napping, and tacos. She loves watching people smash their goals, and gets a ridiculous amount of joy from watching people accomplish things they thought were impossible.
