Niki has been a Starting Strength Coach since 2013. She has been a Staff Member at Starting Strength camps and seminars, contributed articles to Starting Strength and coaches out of her garage in Orange County, CA.
Prior to becoming a Starting Strength coach, she spent many many many hours chasing dreams of being as skinny as someone else and having as many abs as “that girl.” Constantly feeling unfulfilled and stuck, it was in 2013 that she put a stop to her “CrossFit douchebaggery and started to fully appreciate true training and the process of getting strong” which has given her a healthier appreciation for her body and its capacity.
She competes in Powerlifting and Strengthlifting with personal bests of a 290lb Squat, 120lb Press, 200lb Bench, 418lb Deadlift and a 92.5lb Weighted Chin-up. She also practices jiu jitsu.
Niki coaches to help people become stronger and truly appreciate their abilities.
