I just began my journey back to fitness with Nika. In a word, Nika rocks! Historically, I was athletic and very active in a variety of outdoor activities. In 2006, I stopped exercising due to autoimmune issues that have since resolved. In 2008, I was in a motorcycle accident that left me on crutches for almost three years. During that time, we learned I have arthrofibrosis, which left me disabled for approximately seven years. Now, I am trying to regain my old fitness level. One of the effects of the injuries and resulting arthrofibrosis was a significant difference in strength and range-of-motion between my left and right sides. Nika addresses this difference, and includes exercises in my workout to directly affect this unevenness. She has been very positive and fun. She challenges me to my limit but never beyond. She customized a fitness routine that works me hard but not beyond what I should do. She doesn’t coddle me, but makes sure I am not overextended. She closely monitors my form, helping me get the most from each movement. Nika has a wonderful energy. She clearly enjoys what she does, and has an expert level of knowledge. I finish my training sessions feeling motivated and jazzed about getting back in shape.
