Nikki Staab has spent the better part of two decades dedicated to empowering women and enriching their lives.

Now, she has brought Fitness For Life – a personal training studio – to downtown Enumclaw. Having started her business in 2003, she opened a second location in June at 1749 Cole St. (the former home of M&M Thrift Store).

“We offer customized personal training sessions in a private studio environment,” Staab wrote in an email, adding that online sessions can be scheduled so the customer does not have to leave home.

“Our goal,” she wrote, “is to empower women to feel strong and confident.”

A special element of Staab’s business is a focus on helping women who have experienced eating disorders.

“We are a safe place for people in recovery,” she wrote, noting that “We promise to never weigh or measure you or your food.”

Staab’s motivation for becoming a personal trainer and opening a studio is based on personal experience, having gone through treatment for an eating disorder. The first trainer she hired, she said, was “kind and educated” but wasn’t fully up to the task. A “huge amount of information” was lacking, she said, and certain gyms and trainers proved intimidating.

In the end, Staab said, “I wanted to create a safe space where people could learn how to enjoy moving their bodies.”

Fitness For Life can be reached at 253-678-5403 and is open, by appointment, Monday through Friday. Staab can be reached via email at nikki@fitnessforlifeco.com. Her website is FitnessforLifeCo.com.
