Spin


This class is taught by:

Elle McAndrews

INSPIRED BY:

The collective energy that I get to share with the bikergang as we push boundaries and create new opportunities for change.

Music is my life and my career. The tracks I choose are often for a very specific reason. I might choose a song to peak your interest, target a particular move on the bike, strengthen an area of the body, test your endurance, and get you to deepen that mind-body connection. Even when the hustle happens, the right music can encourage introspection and when we examine our own processes, we can keep what is helping us, and ditch what is no longer serving us.

INSPIRED BY:

We motivate with the ultimate hope to inspire the Bikergang… No matter where you are in life or how busy you are, you can choose to make physical fitness a priority. We are passionate about the gigantic health benefits and we want to share this passion! We get excited when we think about impacting others so much so that they make a positive change in their life! Fit people are happy people! We love coming together as a community and sweating together. We don’t take ourselves too seriously – we laugh often, pump out the high-powered tunes, push hard and get it done as a team.

Being in a position to positively impact and invoke change through Spin is an incredible blessing.

This quote from my boy, Russell Westbrook: "'They' say a lot of things. Don't do 'they'. Do you." It's my daily reminder to dream bold and own the narrative.

Also, alllll those sweaty hugs and high fives that happen after every class, when every single one of you show up, badass on the bike.

INSPIRED BY:

What inspires me is the incredible and powerful people that I get to share energy and space with on the bike and in that room. We all have a story. Each one as powerful and meaningful as the person next to you. I am inspired by the platform that we can create together in that room, to encourage each other to step into our potential. To get out of our own way. To celebrate how far we have already come, and to push ourselves to accomplish more than we could have imagined. For me, the spin room has become a place to connect, to grow, to overcome, to let go, to heal, to build courage, strength, and passion. To celebrate ourselves, as we are.

Over the last five years, I’ve been able to share this incredible platform with over 40,000 riders, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Walking through that spin door takes guts - especially the first time and watching people struggle on that bike with me day after day is a big pump. Whatever you're looking for from spin, losing weight, wanting community, some solid cardio and good tunes, or a place to just chill out and sweat - it's always right here for the taking. Ya know how little kids dance when a sick Raffi banger comes on - that's what I do when I find a sweet Disney/DMX mashup and drop that bomb in my playlist! Come get it on the bike with me!

INSPIRED BY:

Health is wealth! Connection and activity are so important for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Sweating it out with the #bikergang always brings good vibes and endorphins that keep me coming back for more!

Kyle Williams

INSPIRED BY:

I’m inspired by the people who come to class and fight through. The stories that are shared after a class light me up. I know sometimes life outside of YYC’s walls is hectic and can beat us up. It’s inspiring to see the amazing community we’ve built, the support for one another, and the determination shown by the Bikergang to give it everything they’ve got for 50 minutes.

Jessica Buchanan

INSPIRED BY:

My daughter, growth in a class, friendships, My job, my family

Montana Butler

INSPIRED BY:

I am inspired by the connection and community that has been created in our studios. People from all walks of life come through our doors - everybody for a different reason - but when we come together, it creates magic in that room that can’t be contained. We rally together to lift each other up, push boundaries, and overcome something bigger than that bike.

I look forward to being right there alongside our Bikergang as they achieve their goals, conquer their fears, and become the best version of themselves. I want to help and inspire people to live their lives to the fullest!

Kaylee Winnitoy

INSPIRED BY:

What inspires me inside and outside of the spin room is the same. It is incredibly inspiring to watch someone strive for something that they might deem unobtainable, yet they continue to push towards that goal and raise the bar higher for themselves. This process can be insanely messy and sometimes comes with a lot of "failure" (or what someone defines as failure). It's in this middle, messy space, that they gain the strength they need to get back up and push for more than they may think they deserve. However, what results is a powerful growth game. Everyone's growth game inspires me to keep pushing for my own and showing up for everyone in that room. LET'S GET MESSY TOGETHER!

Jessica Dumont

INSPIRED BY:

Our YYC Cycle Community – I am inspired everyday by the people I am surrounded by at the studios and find myself constantly striving to be a better person because of them. The very first time I came to YYC Cycle, I felt exhausted from my work day, intimidated, and to be completely honest, apprehensive about walking into the spin room altogether. Although I’m sure I wasn’t on beat (at all), and just generally all over the place, I left the studio with a big smile on my face and way more energy than I had walking in. I remember feeling motivated, and I was hooked instantly! Whenever I’m having a bad day or a stressful week, I can always count on that time inside the spin room to reflect and unwind and come out of class a stronger person with a better perspective. YYC Cycle is so much more to me than just a workout studio, and if someone left one of my classes feeling the same way, I’d be so happy.

Dan MacKinnon

INSPIRED BY:

What inspires me is connection. No one makes it on their own. The connections and friendships I have experienced through spin are the strongest and some of the most meaningful connections in my life. Outside of an incredible workout – spin has evolved for me as an opportunity to reset and focus on priorities. I value each spin class as a unique opportunity to provide the Bikergang with the tools to develop a new level of mental and physical strength.

Claudia Ling

INSPIRED BY:

To live is to go on an adventure, break through the impossible and embrace every moment with positivity, abundance, and love. And every ride is just that. No matter where we came from, we are here to find happiness and gratitude. For me, I’m the happiest when I give it my all, to myself, to the Bikergang and to the universe. And I want to share that same feeling with each and every Bikergang who walk through those doors. Letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be, or what we’re supposed to do and spend that 50 minutes embracing who we are and what we need to do for ourselves. This is what matters to me.

Jamie Evans

INSPIRED BY:

It's about finding changes within myself, and facing challenges through vulnerability and fear. It's about pushing myself out of my comfort zone, while pushing others to do the same. Its about making us all strive to become the best version of ourselves. It's about knowing that spin is so much bigger then just a workout. It's about creating a sense of community, love and strength in a room. It is a place for people to unwind, escape, throw away their stresses and struggles of their every day life and really take that 50 minutes for themselves. It's about knowing the impact or difference that 50 minutes can make for someone's day, week, or month.

Jilayne Lester

INSPIRED BY:

Heartbeats; racing and sweaty.

I love that I am in a safe space that allows people to leave everything at the door; being so vulnerable and real. It's about walking into the studio and forgetting about everything going on outside of those four walls, after all - we are all fighting our own battles. I love having the opportunity to make such a positive impact on someone's day.
