Nichelle Laus

“I am the Editor-In-Chief of NL Women’s Magazine, owner of Optimum Training Centre in Toronto, Canada, transformation specialist, fitness expert, published cover model, motivational speaker, and a proud Mom of 4 young boys.

I have appeared in television commercials, promotional and advertising campaigns for various products and companies, and infomercials. I have trained and competed at an amateur level in both boxing and kick boxing for over 25 years. Just over 3 years ago, I resigned from my 15 year career as a police officer to pursue my love of health and fitness.

Health and fitness is my outlet. It’s the one thing I can do on my own time, which is important with 4 children and a full time career. It’s also the one thing that truly makes me feel strong, both inside and out.

As Editor-In-Chief of this new venture, I am dedicated to inspiring and motivating other women and mothers by sharing real women’s stories of success, passion, struggles, and fitness. I want to show you there is New Life after struggle and there are No Limits when it comes to reaching our goals. Join me in my quest to take women’s health and lifestyle to the Next Level by sharing NL Women’s Magazine with everyone you know.”
