Welcome back to Big Boss Mare with Brandy Von Holten. Today’s guest is Nikki Freeman! Nikki is a diversely talented “smartie pants and health nut”! She is a college professor at the University of Central Missouri and is a cross fit, barre, and piyo instructor! Nikki is currently working on her nutrition certification. After turning 40 she realized she needed to change, and the current diet culture was not the answer. Restricting calories to 1,300-1,500 per day left her without energy and without muscle. This led Nikki to focusing on macros, which are fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. It is Nikki’s goal is to educate and empower others to take control back over their health and host retreats that focus on this combination for improved health: physical, mental, and emotional needs. It is with great pleasure to introduce Nikki Freeman.
