When a friend invited Nikki to give CrossFit a try, she reluctantly accepted. She still remembers her first day.
“I stopped in during a Friday night class- to get info- and I just remember seeing all these people on the rig doing pull-ups and thinking ‘no way I could ever do that,’” she said.
That was three years ago and look at her now. She’s competed in several physique shows, multiple Worldwide CrossFit Opens and more local throw-downs than I can count. She said mostly, she loves the honest friends who keep her accountable, and the ability to be an athlete again.
If Nikki had given into her fear that first Friday, she may have never realized just how strong she is.
