Nikki found CrossFit in 2014 when she moved back to Kamloops after being away on a teaching contract. She dabbled with bodybuilding and powerlifting for a few years, but fell in love with the community, compound movements, workout variety, and amazing coaching that a CrossFit gym offers.
Nikki is a TRU Education graduate and she has been teaching in High School and Elementary classrooms for ten years. Her passion for CrossFit has recently trickled into her classrooms as she has been teaching fitness sessions to her students for the past two years.
Nikki has a first degree blackbelt in Taekwondo and has coached martial arts classes in her past. She has also coached volleyball, rugby, and a ton of curriculum-based sports for physical education. She also enjoys spending time dirt-biking and golfing.
Nikki is always down for spontaneous, crazy workouts during open gym hours. She enjoys loud music, heavy lifting, and coffee. Nikki relies on her checklist of workout must-haves: fun people, quality reps, loud jams, sassy shirts, clever nicknames and tons of laughs!
