Every Woman: Niketa Nichols

There are fantastic women all around us, and Niketa is one of them!

Niketa Nichols is more than just a JAFRA employee, she’s a fantastic mother, wife and triathlete! Read what she had to say when we sat down with her to talk about her biggest physical challenges and triumphs.
 
1. Who or what inspired you to begin competing in triathlons?
I had a baby and was taking some time off from the business world to raise my daughter, but I soon found myself bored out of my mind being a stay-at-home” mom. I decided to join a gym, where I met my Triathlon coach and now friend. She is a great triathlete and very humble at the same time. She made me realize anyone can do triathlons, as long as one puts in the effort. So I thought I’d give it a try.  

 
2. What do you find most rewarding/fun about triathlons?
Aside from the physical appearance (it leaves my body in great shape) I love the adrenaline and the competition. I am a very competitive person, and every time I do a triathlon I work toward a better finishing time. I can work towards bettering myself. It’s never done, or completed. It’s the same principle I take in life. I can always learn; at work, at home and in the world.
 
 
3. What is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome as a triathlete?
Biggest challenge is mental resignation for me. During Ironman, there was a point in the running when every part of my body was hurting, including my toes and hair. J Not really, but you get my point. I was 5 miles away from the finish line and my body was strongly urging me to stop and give up. At that point it becomes a mental game. I had to remind myself the countless hours I had put in training, the time away from my family, friends and other hobbies, and the 12 hours that day. I had to remind myself that my two little ones were waiting for me at the finish line. What kind of mother did I want to be?! What message did I want to give my kids?! That mental talk gave me the strength to push and finish a 140.6 mile race. Of course, as soon as I crossed the finish line I said, “I can do better, where do I sign up for my next race?”
 
 
4. How do you balance this intense training with other aspects of your life?
It is not easy. It is important to have supporting people in your life. But it is something that brings me joy and great sense of accomplishment so I make time for it. I wake up at 5am most days to train. I don’t watch TV or do “time wasters” activities as I call them. I also eat well. It sounds like a given, however, it’s not easily done. I eat to fuel my body, not because it tastes good. The better I eat the better I feel and the more energy I have to accomplish work, family life and training.


5. Which one makes you feel more empowered, finishing a triathlon or getting a makeover?
Finishing a triathlon, hands down.
 

6. What’s your advice for anyone who wants to try something physically challenging, but is unsure of how to start?
Connect with people who have done it before and don’t be afraid to try it out. Social media makes it so easy to find people with the same interests. It’s a matter of putting yourself out there.


7. How do you think JAFRA has impacted your life? How have you witnessed JAFRA effect the lives of others?
Jafra is one of those hidden gems people don’t know about. I was one of those people. I accepted the job for two reasons:
1: I could connect with the mission. I love the idea of providing opportunities to people around the world.
2: I could make an impact. Jafra is a target rich company, and if you are driven, have intrinsic motivation and are willing to roll up your sleeves you can make a great impact.

I see both of these points play out in my everyday life at Jafra. I have met incredible women whose lives have been improved by Jafra. And, I am living my ideal job daily where I get to be creative, feel inspired and make an impact to people I don’t even know around the world. #lovemylife
