About Us

Nicole Radziszewski, BS, NPTI-CPT, MCT (MovNat), FMS L1

Nicole is the president and founder of Mama’s Gotta Move, Inc., a fitness coaching business that specializes in helping moms of all ages and stages move well, get stronger and feel better in their bodies. She is a nationally published fitness writer (Experience Life, Runner’s World, Women’s Running) and sought-after personal trainer.

Nicole founded Mama’s Gotta Move, Inc., in 2015 after the birth of her second son, when she found that a traditional approach to strength training was inappropriate for her postpartum body’s needs. She began her education in pelvic health and training the postpartum woman, learning from experts including Julie Wiebe, PT, Katy Bowman and others, and is also enrolled in the Restorative Exercise Specialist (RES) Program, expected to certify in late 2017. Nicole combines her knowledge of women’s health with her foundation of training natural movement (via her MovNat education) and experience working with runners to help mamas “move well, train smart and play often.”

Nicole is a highly qualified writer who is passionate about educating and encouraging others to live a healthy lifestyle. She earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, in 2006, and held various editorial roles before becoming a freelance fitness writer and personal trainer. She now writes regularly for Experience Life and Women’s Running magazines and her work has also been published in Runner’s World and Zelle. Her bi-weekly column, “Mama’s Gotta Move,” appears in the suburban editions of the Chicago Tribune.
Nicole lives in River Forest, Illinois, with her husband Darek, two boys Dariusz and Mateusz, and dog Akuku.
