Why do you teach spin?

I teach spin because I want people to fall in love with this workout like how I’ve become so addicted to it. It’s a workout for all levels of fitness, and no one will ever get left behind. I want to keep inspiring and motivating my riders, helping them accomplish their goals.

What is your favorite music to teach to?

Pretty much anything! My playlists can be a mix of top 40s to house music to oldies.

What is your favorite spin class “move”?

I actually like all moves, but if I have to pick one, it’s probably sprints. I love the feeling after a good sprint – your heart is pumping, you’re almost breathless, and you just feel alive!

Why do you teach spin?

I decided to teach indoor cycling after years of taking classes and having completely fallen in love with the ride and results that came along with it — both mentally and physically. I wanted to inspire others to reach their goals. I wanted, and still strive to, lead riders through killer workouts with pumping music and effective choreography and drills.

What is your favorite music to teach to?

Really anything! I love to mix it up. I want you to have the feeling never knowing what I’m going to play next!

What is your favorite spin class “move”?

Any combo of moves that makes you mildly hate me and love me all at the same time is my favorite. When you are smiling at me and cussing under your breath, I know it’s working.

Why do you teach spin?

I teach to be a part of a team. To inspire and be inspired! And without fail I’m inspired every time I teach. Whether it be to a full class or a class of one!

What is your favorite music to teach to?

My favorite music to teach to is mostly remixes of whatever! As long as the beat is strong, I’m into it. Britney Spears is my favorite by far!

What is your favorite spin class “move”?

My favorite move is just jumps! Why??? Because jumps give everyone a chance to incorporate stability, speed and strength!

Why do you teach spin?

I teach a variety of fitness modalities and I love them all for different reasons. Spin is just plain fun. I love the energy in the spin room. I love watching people push themselves.

What is your favorite music to teach to?

I like all types of music. I tend to go through phases, right now I’m on an old school hip hop, remixes phase. Next week may be EDM and the week after may be something else. As long as it has a good beat I’ll play it.

What is your favorite spin class “move”?

I don’t really have a favorite move per se. I love climbing hills – long hard hills, in the saddle where you have to grind it out.

Why do you teach spin?

I teach spin because I love making people feel good.  My goal is to make people leave class feeling transformed and proud of what they just accomplished…an awesome, music pumping, calorie burning, full -body work-out!

What is your favorite music to teach to?

I love mash-ups and remixes.  It’s fun watching my students recognize a song they love, mixed and mashed with other songs.  It makes for an awesome variety of genres and beats.  

What is your favorite spin class “move”?

All of them!  The Vortex ride is designed to have a variety of sprints, jumps, climbs, tap backs…and each are fun to teach.  I love seeing the “ah ha” moment when people take themselves to the next level of resistance, speed and fitness level.
