How I got into indoor cycling: I first tried spinning in 1999 after an injury forced me to hang up my running shoes....I have never looked back! Spinning offers the fantastic cardio workout feeling, we used to all a "runner's high" by using great music to motivate us to work hard, have fun, and just go for it!
Music Mania: Although my true passion is new music with a great beat (from Flo rida and Mumford and Sons to Adele and Rihanna), I always try to mix in classics like Motown, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and U2). I am a big fan of mash-ups and a recent convert to country rock! I love theme classes like the all video 25th anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and recently the dance-off concert video class featuring Tina Turner versus Beyonce.
What makes a great class: It is all about the music. I hope when you leave the spin room you will have a song in your head, sweat on your back, and a big smile on your face!
