Nicole Blitzer

RN, MovNat L2 Certified Trainer

Nicole Blitzer has been an RN for over 25 years working across many specialties including women’s health as a midwife, and most recently in a physical medicine and rehabilitation practice. A lifelong athlete, Nicole became disillusioned with long hours behind a desk, its effect on her body, and with the medical field for its tendency to ignore a greater mind-body connection in its treatment protocols. Over the years, her activity level slowed, and her body became less comfortable. It was then that Nicole realized she needed to make a change.

Returning to her athletic roots, Nicole started researching new modalities and chose to study MovNat and GMB as systems of natural movement. MovNat was a total game changer and opened her eyes to a new world of movement and healing possibilities. She is now a Level 2 certified MovNat trainer and in apprenticeship with GMB.

Nicole realizes the importance of being able to move freely, comfortably, and as safely as possible through the world at every stage of life. It is this that she wants to share with as many people as she can, while also encouraging them to bring fun back into their movement and training.
