A Day in the Life of Nia Shanks: Life
Today is the third and final part of the mini-series A Day in the Life of Nia Shanks. In the first two parts I covered my current Training and Nutrition practices and goals. If you missed those, be sure to check them out.
Now that we are to the third and final part, I’ll be revealing to you what I do during my typical work days such as training clients, writing, playing, and maybe even a hidden talent.
I could write out a boring timeline for you on what I do from the second I wake up until I go to bed, but, that wouldn’t be very interesting. Instead I’ll share some videos with you and give you a glimpse of what I do on a daily basis.
I love training people, especially women. All of the Beautiful Badasses I train are highly motivated, determined, and very goal oriented.
Lately I’ve been working closely with my Mom and preparing her for an upcoming powerlifting meet. She was the Beautiful Badass of the Year for a reason – she is amazing and inspires me every single day.
Here’s a little training compilation I put together of some highlights covering a recent week’s worth of training.
Writing has definitely started to take up a lot more of my time; whether I’m writing articles for my blog or for other websites, I spend hours each day on my computer. It’s a goal of mine to increase the number of articles I write for other websites each week, as I’ve been slacking on this for too long now.
Other Random Stuff
I also do the fun daily stuff like walk my dog a few times each day, play soccer with her at the park, cook dinner, and hang out with my family and friends.
My walking companion and soccer buddy
I also have another awesome project that I’m involved in, but I’m not permitted to share much information at the moment. What I can say is that I’m a part of an incredible group of ladies, and we will be a driving force showing and helping women to train and eat properly to achieve their body composition and performance goals.
You will definitely see and hear much more about this in the near future.
I try to include a lot of playful activities in my everyday life. That can mean playing a game of racquetball, going hiking, or scaring small children and their parents at public playgrounds.
Even though I’m in my mid-twenties, I must confess that sometimes I still feel like a five year old. Yes, I like “playing” at playgrounds. I mean, how is launching yourself from a swing-set not a good time?
My Mom must be sooooo proud of me right now.
So if you happen to see some crazy woman playing on the monkey bars at your local park, going down the slides and launching herself from the swings, it’s just me. But you may want to get your children out of the way because I do not share my toys.
All Good Things Come to an End
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this mini-series and sharing with life with you. Hopefully you enjoyed reading and watching the videos as much as I did creating them.
I wasn’t entirely sure how to end this article, so I’ll bring this mini-series to an end with a video of me moonwalking; it’s one of my hidden talents.
