THE KAIA STORY
KAIA [KAI-UH]: STRENGTH FOR LIFE
Kaia FIT was established in 2009 by founder and CEO Nikki Warren in Minden, NV. With this said, we firmly believe that our community of owners, coaches, Kaia women and their families are the true founders of Kaia FIT. Through COVID, our community rallied behind us in support and encouragement and we would not still be standing without you. Our foundation was established in Nikki Warren’s dedication to wellness.
Throughout her 20 years of owning gymnastics facilities and coaching, she saw moms in the gym—either sitting idly watching their children flipping and jumping or quickly rushing in and out seeming to wear “Taxi” on their heads. I often wondered to myself: What happened to their sense of play? When do they get to jump? When is the last time any of them tried a handstand and laughed as they fell to the floor?
These questions moved Nikki to consider how much we, as adult women, also need to play and laugh with our friends—with our sisters. She knew then that she would develop a sisterhood for these moms: one wherein we could set goals and achieve them together; a place expert coaches would help to create stronger bodies for all the daily demands of our lives; and a community of friendship, encouraging healthier minds. She knew that if she created this space that she would soon watch these children’s mothers running, jumping, laughing, falling down—and getting back up again.
Nikki comes from a family of five girls, and understood from an early age the value of sisterhood and the strength of our relationship continues to teach us that regardless of what is going on in the outside world, the love and support we have for each other ensures that we all thrive: together and as individuals. Many of us don’t have that sisterhood and Kaia is that gift of sisterhood & community; a place without judgement where we support your dreams, encourage your goals, and help you to accomplish things you never thought possible.
