Nykki Ross on Fitness, Nutrition and Bodybuilding

Nykki Ross of Body By Nykki sat with Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss all things fitness and nutrition.

Nykki’s father, Master Phil Ross, is not only the area’s most decorated and accomplished martial artist and fitness instructor, but also a great friend to #HipNJ. So, it was only natural that Nykki stop by and discuss her accomplishments.

“I’ve always been involved in fitness,” Ross says. She did her first show in November of 2015, and has been doing them ever since.

“It takes a lot,” she says, when asked what it takes to get her body into competition shape. “I was lifting five to six days a week, doing cardio four to five days a week,” she explains.

Ross says that she has met so many wonderful women through this sport, whether it be in person or on social media. “We have this network of strong, awesome women.”

Ross runs her own business, Body By Nykki. She provides online and in-person coaching, as well as meal plans and online workout plans.
