How I got into indoor cycling: My sisters in Chicago showed me the way! I've always been active but when I saw what a great cycling class could be at the studio they owned, I was hooked! Music Mania: The most important thing about my music is the beat. I choose artists and songs that energize and motivate...songs that make you want to move! The best of current pop like, Pitbull, One Republic, and Bruno Mars ..…you will also hear some of the great bands of all time…U2, Coldplay and Van Morrison ....and I will also reach back to some Motown and other fun oldies! I scour youtube to discover newer bands with great spin beats…Imagine Dragons, Nico and Vinz, John Newman, and lots more. Lately I have been known to throw in some country…I am learning to like it! The playlist changes with every class I teach…its always hot off the press for your ride.
The things I want most from my class are that you leave with an endorphin high like no other….that you reached beyond your comfort zone…..that you smiled during at least one song or video....that you burned a ton of calories and that you want to come back!!!
