Niko is a Houston native but moved to the Yakima Valley 2006. From there, he went on to become valedictorian of his Online School in 2018. His passion for fitness and sports started at a young age when he swam for the Yakima Athletic Club’s swim team and played club soccer. At the end of 2019, he tore his ACL and meniscus while playing basketball. After being at his lowest in 2020 due to his injury, going through physical therapy reignited his love for fitness and exercise he once had. After successfully recovering in 2021, he joined the Yakima Athletic Club wanting to be a Personal Trainer. This was all so that he could give everyone the chance to be the best version of themselves physically. Having completed his National Academy of Sports Medicine certification to be a Certified Personal Trainer he can now do that.
