Virenia Gwendolyn Peeples, better known as Nia Peeples, is an American singer and actress. She was born in Hollywood, California on December 10, 1961 to parents Elizabeth Joan and Robert Eugene Peeples. She is famous for her R&B songs and dance music. She is a product of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She started to gain attention when she became a member of the performance group called The Young Americans. In the year 1988, she became even more prominent when her single “Trouble” became the number one hit in the Hot Dance Music/Club Play. She also gained enough attention when her single “Street Of Dreams” also became sensational. Later on, she pursued an acting career and was cast on the TV series Fame, playing the role Nicole Chapman. It was in 2010 when she became part of the TV series Pretty Little Liars.
So what are her fitness regimens? According to Nia, “In the years since I have tried dozens of fitness products and regimens, from weight training, and yoga, to food combining and exotic tea concoctions. I have owned Universal gyms, stationary bikes and elliptical walkers. I’ve belonged to dance studios, dojos and Pilates studios.”
She added, “After all that sweating and all those calories burned, what have I learned? Simply this: that the best way for me to get fit and stay fit is to focus not on how but on why. So why do I remain so committed to fitness? To appear on a cover of a magazine or look great on the red carpet? No. I stay fit so I can play roller hockey with my son, and hula dance with my daughter or pick her up and carry her from the couch to her bed when she’s fallen asleep watching Hatari with grandpa.”
That’s how fitness is for Nia, and we’re very inspired to follow her ideals.
