I've been a spinning instructor for 2 years and spinning class enthusiasts for over 4. A runner is how I thought of myself since high school track and field and only as a runner. After years of pounding pavement I started getting repeat injuries. I learned the meaning of "too much of a good thing" with my running and in review, over-training was the likely cause for my injuries.
This is where spinning came into the picture. I was drawn to spinning when I realized I could still get a intense cardio workout with minimal impact on my joints. My love for spinning only grew when I realized it's a highly effective cross-training activity, combined with awesome music and routines to challenge me. Since integrating spinning into my life I've been able to heal from my running injuries and have also seen an improvement in my running and overall fitness. I work as a full-time Clinical Dietitian; so being able to combine my knowledge of nutrition with sports and fitness, which I love.
My class will push you to beat your best and have fun doing it! I'm competitive, but probably one of the most laid back competitors you'll meet. I'm all about getting a good workout, but also making sure I enjoy the routine! When you come to my class bring your determination to work hard, as well as, your sense of humor! My music style is upbeat top 40 with a little bit of alternative, mixed together with popular classics. I want my students to feel with every class they're going to be able to move a little closer to their goals and that I'm going to be right there with them climbing toward my goals. Remember any progress is good progress!
