Today we’d like to introduce you to Nadia Murdock.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I launched Nadia Murdock Fit in 2012 after years of pursuing my passion from the sidelines. During my freshman year of college, I gained a considerable amount of weight (over 30lbs). This was a result of being homesick and depressed. For the remainder of my college career, I struggled with my weight and battled to lose the pounds. I often opted for unhealthy methods ranging from deprivation to fad diets which put me a few steps backward instead of forward.
It wasn’t until a good friend suggested Weight Watchers that I began to learn to retrain my mind and body. I discovered and explored ways to eat that nourished my body in a healthy. My desire to obtain a good well-being gave me the desire to help others after they witnessed my own transformation. I began offering advice to friends, started my own fitness column reviewing high-end fitness studios in New York City and had the opportunity to meet well-known fitness industry professionals. Once I realized the profound effect I was having on others, I wanted to spread my message more! I soon became a certified fitness instructor and trainer and shortly after launched that Nadia Murdock Fit.
I am now a nationally recognized fitness coach, barre instructor, published author and regular on-air fitness expert as seen on E! News, Fox, Today.com, SELF.com, and Life & Style just to name a few. I am living proof that my “strong mind, strong body” method works.
Has it been a smooth road?
Definitely not! I learned a lot about myself and I continue to learn something new every day.
I feel the more I grow as a person professionally, spiritually and personally, it always benefits my clients and my business. As a solopreneur starting out, I had to really figure out everything on my own from running my own business to creating partnerships and dealing with clients. I wouldn’t change any of it! It shaped me to be the person I am today.
One obstacle with clients that I had to learn to handle delicately was having a clear understanding that not everyone is going to deal with hardships or ups and downs the same way I would. Many people handle their wellness journey/life in so many different ways. Being able to offer my teachings in a compassionate way that also motivated clients has been a blessing.
You have to meet people where they are and go from there.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Nadia Murdock Fit story. Tell us more about the business.
As an author, instructor and fitness coach, I help students and clients achieve their wellness goals inside out. My path to a personal and professional life rooted in health and wellness has not only taught me the skills I need to help you makeover and change your body on the outside but also how to train your mind from the inside.
I understand that to ensure you’re able to succeed in terms of your health and wellness goals, we need to work as much on your mind and your current personal hurdles to health as we need to work on your physical fitness. That’s why I created a program that addresses both of those needs head-on.
My six-week body and mind program will offer big changes! If you’ve waited years to address the things you wanted to change about yourself, I can help you start making those changes now! It’s not a quick fix; it’s a lifestyle.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Barre and Pilates have grown so much since I started teaching! I see the continued growth within both industries as it becomes more widespread. A common theme I have been seeing includes the collaboration of different techniques. Like Yoga and Barre, Barre and HIIT, Barre and Pilates, etc…
