What do you want your riders to get/feel from your class?

I want them to feel confident, like they achieved something. With confidence comes SO many badass things - strength, passion, power, happiness. All of which I want all of my riders to feel, all of the time - not just inside the four walls of the studio, but in all aspects of their life. And I want them to know, that when the going gets tough, we get tougher - and that is what this community, and I, are here for. To push through it all, to give it our all, and to have FUN (get sweaty) while we do it!!


What motivates you to jump on the bike every class?

This community. I can’t say it enough. Every rider, whether it’s their first or 100th ride, brings a unique energy and presence to SPINCO. As a rider, I feel it, and as an instructor, it fuels me. I can never get enough of the love and energy that surrounds me, every time I step foot in the studio. Whether it be to sweat it out as a rider, or being fortunate enough to lead the room - this community is where it is AT.

Where you can find me off the bike?


Sweating it out at UVU (what’s up Kenny!), trying to fit in as much yoga as possible (stretch out those hips, friends) - but mostly, drinking lotsa wine (it’s all about balance, amirite?), eating all of the delicious food I can get my hands on, and hangin’ out with my pals.
