Niki Prekas

Niki Prekas Coach of CrossFit In Austin, TX

My fitness journey has been nothing short of thrilling, starting from being a competitive cheerleader to a boxer, and ultimately becoming a competitive CrossFit athlete. I was introduced to CrossFit while training for a fight in 2010, and I fell in love with the program after my very first WOD. From the moment I walked into Upreach Crossfit, I knew I had found my home. I was blown away by the sense of community and camaraderie that existed among our members. As a coach, I strive to create that same sense of community and support for my athletes. Fitness isn’t just a job or hobby for me, it’s a way of life that permeates everything I do. Whether I’m rescuing dogs, going about my daily routine, or in the gym, I’m always focused on promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. I’m excited for the chance to share my knowledge and passion with you as your coach, and to assist you in achieving your goals and living a fulfilling life.
