Why do you teach at SPINCO?
I teach at SPINCO because of the community. SPINCO inspires me and lifts me up! It is a place where everyone is a part of something greater than themselves. When we all come together, amazing things can happen. The energy in the room is INSANE and the feeling I get when my 50min ride is complete, is gratitude. We are in this together, we lift each other up, inspire, motivate and cheer each other on.
What motivates you to get on the bike every class?
The community, the team, the room, the journey, the experience. This is so much more than a workout for the physical body, it feeds the soul, reminds me of the incredible opportunities and abilities we have and inspires me far beyond the studio doors.
What do you want your riders to get/feel from your class?
I want my riders to feel inspired. I want my riders to feel thankful for their abilities, excited to move their bodies, and proud of their accomplishments. I want my riders to have a blast and be amazed at what they're capable of both on and off the bike.
What is your favourite type of music to ride to?
I love it all! I enjoy a huge range of music, however, I tend to lean towards music we can sing along to or something with a heavy beat drop that makes you feel strong and powerful, because you are!
Favourite day off activity?
Spending time with my family!
