About Me

My journey

My name is Friederike Aprea. Most people call me Rike (pronounced Reeka). I am German-born and have lived and worked in Japan and Korea before I moved to the U.S. I’m a coach, writer, and consultant with the mission of improving peoples’ lives through movement and smart lifestyle choices.

Before I launched my coaching and consulting business, I worked for companies such as BMW, Adidas, Siemens, and Reebok, helping them to optimize and implement marketing strategies and new business models.

I work with people or companies on different levels:

  • I consult fitness companies on how to digitize, develop, or market their content.
  • I help businesses to set up influencer and affiliate marketing programs.
  • I create blog posts for fitness, wellness, or sports companies.
  • I host corporate wellness workshops together with Sush Prusty, M.D.
  • I coach individuals and offer personal training sessions in person or via Skype, Zoom, or Facetime.

My certifications:

I’m an ACE certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and  NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES), which means I can help you to prevent injuries or recover from them. My Behavior Change Specialist licence (BCS) allows me to support you to implement long-lasting lifestyle changes and my Weight Loss Specialization (WLS) can help you to identify a weight loss strategy that works for you. 

I have an MA in international management and Japanese and have worked for international companies such as Adidas, Reebok, or BMW.

Fun Fact

I have a black belt in Judo…don’t mess with me!
