MEET SIERRA

Sierra Nielsen 

My story in a nutshell? I was born and raised in Lincoln Nebraska and graduated with a degree in Psychology from Vanderbilt University before moving out to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. After several years in TV development, talent management and independent film finance and production, I started my own consulting company. But every path kept leading me back to my passion for fitness, health and inspiring others. After losing my mother, my best friend, to Stage 4 Lymphoma in 2015, I knew I finally found the courage to take the jump and follow my dreams, so I completely rebooted my life to become a wellness entrepreneur and devote my time to helping inspire others to create their happiest and healthiest lives. I currently hold a Personal Training Certification and Sports Nutrition Certification from the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA).   

MY PASSIONS

I am dedicated & passionate about empowering others through fitness & healthy living. About traveling and learning how to stay healthy no matter where you are. And most importantly, I’m passionate about people with kind hearts and beautiful souls. People who inspire others on a daily basis by the way in which they live.

 

Why?

 

FITNESS & HEALTH because my health is my greatest wealth!  I am passionate about guiding others to create healthy lifestyle habits & to stay motivated, especially when it seems impossible to do so.

 

Far too many people take their health for granted. A lot of my drive to be the best version of myself, inside & out, comes from my amazing mother, who passed away this last summer from a second battle with Stage 4 Lymphoma.  She had only just turned 53. Seeing someone you love, your best friend, go through such a life-altering physical and emotional journey, changes you forever.  After seeing my mother go through years of cancer treatments & watching her physical strength deteriorate so drastically and so quickly, I knew I had to make fitness & health a top priority in my life.  To be the best version of myself, for not only me but for my family, I needed to prioritize OVERALL self-care. The journey has not been easy however. Staying healthy and taking care of yourself when you it seems like the whole world is against you is a tough battle, but one you CAN overcome.

 

TRAVEL & SEEING THE WORLD because traveling exposes you to different perspectives, experiences, cultures, and ultimately, a better self.  I know all too well that tomorrow is never guaranteed and I am determined to soak up as many life experiences as I can. I also know that staying healthy while traveling is not an easy task, so my focus is to help teach you how to stay healthy no matter where you are or what options you have.  

 

KIND HEARTS & BEAUTIFUL SOULS? That one’s easy. Because you inspire me every day to be a better person.

 

Through this community, I hope to help guide you in a direction to living fit, healthy, happy & empowered lives, particularly when the going gets tough. And most importantly, to encourage you to never forget to always do what makes YOUR soul happy.  

 

Follow along as I share my personal tools, tips and advice about all things fitness, food, travel, and living life with passion & purpose.  

 

Thanks for joining me on my journey and I look forward to connecting with you! 

Cheers!

XO, Sierra
