About Gratitude Fitness

Vicki Zumbraegel - Owner, Personal Trainer and Registered Nurse.


I am a REPs Registered Certified Personal Trainer and a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Nursing Degree and a Post Graduate in Primary Health Care. I have been nursing for 32 years in various settings such as theatre, gynaecology, NICU and Starship Children’s Emergency. 


From my own personal experiences and listening to others, finding a Personal Trainer that is the right fit for you is challenging.  I love that I can provide quality care that you need and deserve at every age and stage of life that you are at.  I am passionate about empowering women to have the confidence to exercise and improve or maintain their fitness and health lifestyles.


I live in Christchurch, New Zealand with my husband and blended family of 5 children. I can relate to being a busy mum and wife, balancing children, work and fitness. I also understand what it is like to be overweight and unfit. I have tackled the process of feeling good about myself and regaining control of my life. I have also experienced poor pelvic floor health.


I can help you define the goals you want to achieve. I will encourage you and offer you the support that you need and want to succeed.


Gratitude Fitness was inspired by the act
of gratitude; simply put, being grateful.

An action or a thought of being grateful inspires kind acts, love, forgiveness, peace of mind, retrospective thoughts, smiles, mindfulness, attraction and thankfulness.

I am grateful for the opportunity to help others to be all that they can be and want to be. I am grateful for my health and fitness. I am grateful for my energy and being alive. I am grateful for my family and friends. I am grateful for love and inspiring supportive people who have come into my life. I am grateful for opportunities that come my way
