I started teaching group exercise in September 2019.

  1. What made you want to start teaching group exercise?

  1. What is your favorite part about teaching your class(es)?

I love seeing people getting into the music that I’ve chosen for each class and working hard to accomplish goals. It’s very rewarding as an instructor to see others achieve their goals.

  1. What is your favorite song or style of music to teach to?

My favorite genres of music for spin are hip-hop, dance, and pop because they’re upbeat and great for rhythm riding!

  1. What is your favorite exercise to do in your class?
I tend to do a lot of interval training in my classes. I also like to work in running pushes in hand position 3 because it’s a good way to challenge yourself.

Running, downhill skiing, and playing with my two kids.

  1. What else do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors and having a glass of wine with girlfriends!
