The gym’s owners wrote in a public Facebook post: ‘Our head coach, Chris, was taken from us yesterday and my thoughts go out to his family. Chris was like a son to us and a big brother to our two girls.’
It continued: ‘Chris and Nikki and have both touched many lives at our gym. I am friends with Nikki as well and just don’t know what life brought to her but our thoughts are with her and her family as well.’
Lisa Rosten, a friend of Addimando, told the Journal the charges seemed out of character for the stay-at-home mom.
Rosten said: ‘She is the most loving mother in the world. She taught her kids every single thing. Her kids are extremely smart because of her. She’s a genuinely good perso.’
