Become a Beautiful Badass!

 “I absolutely love your no nonsense simple approach to fitness and nutrition and I’m not exaggerating when I say it has changed my life.” -Kerry

Beautiful Badass – [byoo-tuh-fuhl bad-ass] an awesome lady who builds and maintains the body she wants, the sane and simple way. She achieves maximum results in minimum time and doesn’t revolve her life around the gym or a strict eating schedule. She does things differently.

A Beautiful Badass does not diet, follow OCD eating habits, or get overwhelmed with the surplus of conflicting information. She applies simple, flexible nutrition guidelines that allow her to improve her physique and health, all while maintaining her sanity.

Finally, being a Beautiful Badass means more than just building an incredible body. It’s about forging an unwavering sense of self-confidence. About being proud of who you are and what you can DO.  


This is the biggest myth in the world of female strength training. Practically every female client I’ve had was hesitant to start lifting heavy weights because she was terrified she’d end up huge and overly muscle bound. Unfortunately, that myth is still alive and kickin’.

That’s me, Nia Shanks. On the left I’m deadlifting 330 pounds. That is 2.64 times my bodyweight. And as you can see, you wouldn’t use the term “big ‘n bulky” to describe me.

I’ve been lifting weights for over 10 years now. And the only thing that happened as I added more and more weight to the bar over the years was my body changing for the better. I lost body fat. I built some sexy muscle. My self-confidence sky-rocketed. In short, working out like a Beautiful Badass allowed me to build the body I truly wanted, and I was having a blast doing so because the workouts were so motivating.

The only side-effects you’ll experience from Beautiful Badass are looking absolutely awesome and building the body you truly want, having fun with your workouts, saying “good-bye” to dieting forever, and boosting your self-confidence.

I just wanted to thank YOU for all that you do! I read everything you write and own all of your training programs and realized that I have never properly thanked you!  I absolutely love your no nonsense simple approach to fitness and nutrition and I’m not exaggerating when I say it has changed my life. In the past I have also been obsessed with my eating habits and wanting to lose fat, and really overdid it with my workouts as well.  I just couldn’t understand how I could be working so hard and not seeing the results I wanted.  Well, the last couple years I have really been on journey for the better. I have stopped obsessing about nutrition and I have learned to stop trying to be perfect and just be happy with myself.  I have been doing your training programs for the last 1.5…
