Teaching Style

Motivating, encouraging, here to push you but also acknowledge that each day is different and it is imperative that you listen to your body. A good dose of dancing  and LOTS of hovers (werk those bootys!).

Qualifications & Accomplishments

Over the years I have taken HUNDREDS of spin classes across Canada and the US. I have loved being able to draw inspiration from all of these classes while adding in my own twist. I truly believe that whatever you want to achieve, when you put in the work, ANYTHING is possible. I do not have a traditional fitness background but put my mind to becoming an instructor and put hundreds and hundreds of hours into my year of training. The confidence I gained from training to be a spin instructor even helped me quit my corporate job and pursue my own business this past year. Again, ANYTHING is possible when the time and effort is there.

What to expect in my class

45 minutes of heavy climbs, hovers, mixed with a  dose of choreo. You WILL be singing but also expect moments of really pushing your body in a safe and supportive environment. Judgement free zone.

How I got into fitness

Growing up my mom was a personal trainer so I truly grew up in the gyms. I found that fitness was the number one beneficial thing when dealing with my anxiety and stress. Fitness has brought me new friends and healthier habits to my life.

Favourite way to sweat

Obviously SPIN but outside of that I LOVE a good boxing session.

Fun Fact

I grew up in Orlando (hints why Disney songs may make appearances in my class), went to school at Florida State University AND…lived in Shanghai, China for a few years when I was 18.

Music Genre

Obviously BRITNEY but outside of that I love house with meaningful lyrics and the early 2000s and 2010s pop punk (Blink 182, Sum 41, Paramore, all the above)
