I fell in love with Spinning when my gym finally purchased Spin bikes and started a program in 2008. I loved everything about it and before I knew it, I was creating my own rides and playlists to work out to on my own. Even though I had been athletic and fit my whole life, I felt stronger and more fit (and I was having more fun) than I ever had.
Another instructor noticed my enthusiasm and persuaded me to become certified to teach in 2009. Our program was growing and we needed more classes and another instructor. I never thought I could do it, and I questioned myself even after becoming certified. In addition, I had just watched another member become certified to instruct and fail miserably. I didn’t want the same thing to happen to me, so I told the gym at the time that I would be happy to sub, but I didn’t want my own class. Well, I started subbing and I fell in love with Spinning in a whole new way. People wanted more and I immediately started my own class and have helped to add many new classes since then.
I truly enjoy helping others and seeing them succeed and have fun reaching their fitness goals. I also really enjoy helping other instructors and sharing what I’ve learned in the process.
You can find me teaching 2-3 cycling classes a week at the Oneida Tri-Valley YMCA
