About Us

Nixercise is a refreshingly realistic and jargon free approach to health, fitness and nutrition which has a devoted following.  Get fit and stay healthy, make friends and feel at one with nature. 

We simply advocate keeping it simple – from exercising in the outdoors to eating uncomplicated foods free from sugar or additives. Laughing is positively encouraged, as is making time to relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people.

Founded by Nix Ticehurst in 2009, we offer group fitness classes in and around the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, whatever the weather. Working out in the wonderful fresh air helps to create a toned and flexible body, calm the mind and balance your emotions.

Depending on your fitness level, there are the PowerWalk classes or more high intensity, BodyWeight sessions which involve planking, lunging, squatting and sprinting (often through the mud).  These are supplemented by indoor classes with time for a long stretch after a high intensity work. One-to-one training is also available on request.

No two fitness classes are ever the same. Nixercise mixes up natural bodyweight movements with cardio and stretching to get your body looking its best.  Come rain or shine, weekly group training sessions take place up and down the hills of Wittenham Clumps (near Wallingford), Streatley Hill (near Goring on Thames) and Stoke Row (near Henley on Thames).  Each year Nixercise trains clients to take part in an annual challenge which has included scaling the Three Peaks in 24 hours and hiking the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

Fitness sessions are complemented by fad-free, nutritional advice helping you to eat sensibly and naturally. Practical tips are shared in an online member forum to exchange ideas and support one another.  We can help weight loss but offer much more besides. Several clients have seen life-changing results from bringing diabetes under control, to helping manage clinical depression and improving sleep.

New for 2017, we are launching a brand new Nixercise Retreat which offers you a chance to sample Nixercise in luxury surroundings and take some time out for yourself.

Nix is a fully qualified personal trainer with a holistic – and refreshingly realistic – approach to exercise and nutrition. She is in her fifties with a teenage daughter. Nix is ably assisted by a loyal and fully committed team.
