What Does NIKA Even Mean?
It means conquer in Greek. Kara is Greek and we wanted a name that meant something to the members. A feeling that it would give to people. A feeling of conquering something hard. A feeling of accomplishment.
We gave Kara’s mom the assignment of reaching out to all her Greek friends and helping us come with a name. They came back with several but we loved NIKA. The next step was to ask CrossFit for permission and we were sure they would say no. It sounded too much like Nike. But the answer was yes and we were so excited!
Today we call ourselves NIKAs, we wear our gear proudly, and put those stickers everywhere. Because we have conquered so much!
