Why do you teach at SPINCO?
I teach at SPINCO because it allows me to help riders push themselves beyond their limits and come out of each ride feeling proud of what they have accomplished. Being able to watch riders grow stronger each day is so rewarding to see. Knowing that I am able to give back the feeling of strength and empowerment that I feel when I ride to others is something so special.
What motivates you to get on the bike every class?
Knowing that no matter what is going on I will walk out of a class feeling stronger than before. The feeling I get when the music comes on and the lights go down gives me such a rush of energy and lights me on fire.
What do you want your riders to get/feel from your class?
To feel accomplished and proud of what they have done. I want them to know that showing up is the biggest challenge and from there you can take on any challenge you face with confidence and courage.
What is your favourite type of music to ride to?
Anything with a fast and fun beat! I love a good pop remix, throwback jam, and sometimes a little bit of hip hop/rap!
Quote to live by:
“You will face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.”
Where can you find me off the bike?
Skiing with my friends and family at Crabbe Mountain, or studying and drinking lots of coffee!
Favourite day off activity?
Baking up a storm, going for a long walk outside or re-watching Gossip Girl for the hundredth time.
Hidden Talent or something that would surprise riders about you?
I was a competitive synchronized swimmer for almost 10 years!
