Nicole Radziszewski, BS, NPTI-CPT, RES, MovNat Level 1, Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach

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 child, when she found that a traditional approach to strength training was inappropriate for her postpartum body’s needs. Already a certified personal trainer since 2009, she began her education in pelvic health and training the pregnant and postpartum woman, learning from experts including Julie Wiebe, PT, Katy Bowman of Nutritious Movement and others. She is a certified Restorative Exercise Specialist (RES), Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach, and MovNat Level 1 Trainer, and she continues to build her knowledge through courses and mentorships with experts in her field.  

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,” appeared in the suburban editions of the Chicago Tribune.

Nicole lives in River Forest, Illinois, with her husband Darek, three children Dariusz, Mateusz, and Noela, and dog Akuku.
