SBS Member Spotlight – Nikki

Tell us about yourself

I am married and the Mom to an 11 and 14 yr old. I have been a police officer for just over 21 years.

How were you introduced to Stone Brook Strength?

I was looking for something new to do for exercise while preparing to return to work after my son was born. I found Crossfit and shortly after Crossfit Regina. I followed CFR WODs for a long time and friended Robin and Aaron on FB. Earlier this year after recovering from an illness and being away from any kind of routine for over a year, I knew I wanted to get back on track. I reached out to Robin through FB and have been working with both she and Aaron since May.
