— The Dream of the Planet
Welcome to NyceMoves, where we believe athletes from under-resourced communities are in need of equitable access to resources and holistic practices aligned to Self-Healing, Self-Mastery, and Self-Empowerment.
Here at NyceMoves, we recognize that socio-economic factors are acutely responsible for many challenges athletes endure on their quest to pave a positive successful athletic career. Having limited exposure to resources such as; state-of-the-art fitness training centers, mentorship, nutritional guidance, financial literacy, and culturally-relevant programs perpetuates systemic racism, inequitable resource allocation, and an increase in mental wellness hardships. This fragile system can present short & long-term mapping challenges athletes endure. It is crucial for humans to be self-liberate and this is why NyceMoves created a health and wellness hub for athletes that facilitates educational workshops, clinics, spiritual yoga and mindset sessions, nutritional & financial literacy classes, and athletic fitness training.
— OUR MISSION
Teaching aspiring athletes, particularly from underresourced communities, how to chart a path of self-healing, self-empowerment, and self-mastery through holistic practices to help maximize their Athletic, Mental Wellness, Nutritional, and Financial Literacy.

We’ve all heard the stories: a promising young athlete who fails to achieve her potential, or a professional athlete unable to manage the fruits of his success. Athletes from underresourced communities often have a double burden—they carry the hopes and dreams of friends and families along with their own, and their ‘map’ may be missing major features—they may not have access to the social-emotional or financial tools more affluent kids learn to use in managing their business, financial, professional and personal choices.
