Local Chick: Nikki SnowLocal personal trainer Nikki Snow grew up in Vaucluse, but now calls Bondi home. She shares her local favourites with The Beast…
How long have you lived here? I’ve been living in my apartment in Bondi for the past six years, but grew up in Vaucluse.
What’s your favourite beach? Tamarama. I can literally walk there in five minutes as it is at the end of my street. Also, they don’t call it Glamarama for nothing. The people there are just fabulous!
What’s your favourite eatery? Jo & Willy’s Depot in North Bondi for my favourite morning acai bowl, Lyfe Café on Glenayr Avenue for chilli chicken salad at lunch, and dinner at Sefa Kitchen on Bondi Road for great sharing dishes and a glass of wine.
Where do you like to have a drink? The Corner House for a Malbec. Have I just repeated my favourite area? Bondi Road near Denham street is great!
Best thing about the Eastern Suburbs? The beaches and the amazing coastal walks. Also, my family lives in the east so makes it handy for pop-ins and babysitters.
Worst thing about the Eastern Suburbs? Traffic on a summer’s day.
Do you have a favourite sporting team? The Sydney Swans. Who cannot love their great arms?
What music are you into at the moment? Whatever my friend Tammy (who works at Sony) tells me to listen to.
Who is your favourite person? My baby daddy and, of course, my six-month old baby Oscar too.
What do you get up to on the weekends? I work most Saturday mornings, love Sunday morning workouts with my chicks followed by brunch, and of course Sunday night dinner with the family at Mamma’s.
What do you do for work? I am a personal trainer based at Bondi in my gym. I don’t consider it work as I love what I do and who I train.
What’s your favourite thing about work? My amazing clients and helping them reach their goals. Also, my son can fit perfectly into my work routine and is a great drawcard for my clients.
Do you have a favourite quote? “Enjoy life because this is not a dress rehearsal.”
