Nika, the “Spin Doctor,” is a sweat enthusiast and Nutrition PhD. When Nika isn’t sweating at CycleBar, you can find her wearing a lab coat in a nutritional sciences research lab at UK. As a former collegiate tennis player, Nika loves building mental strength alongside physical strength. Whether through exercise or nutrition, she loves inspiring positive health behaviors in her community. Though typically quiet and reserved, her passion for becoming a CycleStar helped her find her voice both on the bike and off it. You can expect her rides to be full of nerdy puns, encouragement, heart rate-rising intervals, and beat drops. Show up expecting hills and sprints but be prepared to discover a new power within that is independent of gear and speed.
