Coach LaLa V.
La Nieciá Vicknair, aka “Coach Lala V.,” the owner of Thrive Health Lab (Los Angeles) is a Howard University Cum Laude Alum, member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise and Nutrition Specialist. Her focus on fitness and community building led her to establish a boutique fitness center in an underserved area of predominantly Black residents near South LA.
La Niecia’ is following a purpose-driven path to create sustainable, safe and heart-centered spaces for the people in her community. As a long time resident of Ladera Heights, Coach LaLa has witnessed the downturn of the health and wellness of her neighboring community due to a lack of resources and accessibility to educational and empowering fitness-focused services.
Starting with her own family, La Niecia’ built outdoor exercise classes, trained clients one on one and partnered with local schools, businesses and organizations to serve the community a healthy dose of uplifting experiences. After the loss of her father, La’ Niecia set herself on this path of leadership in the health and fitness arena. La Niecia’ recognized the absence of a boutique-style gym in her area and chose to stand firmly in her divinely guided purpose and create one from the ground up.
Coach LaLa built Thrive Health Lab to serve those in need of compassionate, comprehensive training and support as they pursue a healthier lifestyle. As a result of training with Thrive Health Lab, clients are educated in health, fitness and holistic living through workshops, community-building events and corrective exercise programming.
Thrive Health Lab has been recognized by the LA Times, Black Enterprise and the Washington Post for the phenomenal impact it’s creating in the community. Coach LaLa continues to educate and empower her community through a sense of social responsibility and personal commitment. La’ Niecia is following her heart and continues her dedication to improving the lives of others through her work.
