What Motivates you about being a Motivator?
I’ve been obsessed with maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle since losing my dad to a preventable heart disease (emphasis on “balanced” as I will never turn my back on chocolate). I aim to live each day vivaciously, learning something from each person that I cross paths with. Being a motivator provides me the opportunity to meet and learn from so many people while sharing my experiences. The YYC Cycle community has been my saving grace through some difficult times and I hope to manifest that nondiscriminatory family-like environment in my classes. Whether you’re new to spin or you’ve attended 500 classes, I look forward to learning from you.

How would you describe your classes at YYC CYCLE?
Bootylicious! I love music that makes you want to break out into a booty-poppin’ dance frenzy. Despite the fact that I was a competitive dancer for years, my dance moves are akin to the Carlton dance. When you attend my class, I hope you leave your inhibitions at the door and leave my class feeling lifted - whether that’s your spirit, energy or booty. I have an eclectic taste in music - playing everything from rap to Disney remixes but you’ll always know when one of my favourites is playing cuz I’ll have a geeky grin from ear to ear.

Who's your favourite Disney character?
Stitch - slightly destructive and misunderstood but he means well and he's friggen cute (in an "ugly blue alien" kind of way).

What's your Bucket List Item?
Travel to two new countries each year!

What motivates me about being a motivator?
The idea of helping others discover their inner greatness is my greatest passion. Everyone has so much potential hidden inside of them, and when it is finally released, anything is possible!

How would you describe your style of class at YYC?
In 4 simple words.... A Positivity Pump Up.

What is your favorite part of living in Calgary?
The day I realized going to the mountains didn’t have to be a voyage as much as a quick daily adventure was the day living in Calgary became the biggest blessing ever. Calgary is such an amazing city if you truly take the time to discover everything and everyone that makes it so special.

What is your biggest life obstacle?
Learning to have faith in patience.

What Motivates you about being a Motivator?
What motivated me to become a Motivator was being part of the incredible community that is the bikergang! I want other people to experience the energy and the impact that this place can have on a person. Something special happens when a group of strangers push themselves together. Who wouldn't want to be part of that?!

How would you describe your classes at YYC CYCLE?
My favorite part of YYC Cycle is the music! It’s all about getting sweaty but having fun. It's my mission to find tunes that energize and fuel you push yourself harder. Come ready to sweat to heavy beats and awesome remixes you can lose yourself in! We will push past our limits together and leave that room stronger than before!

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Open mouth chewers!

Bucket List Item?
Hike Machu Picchu!

What motivates you about being a motivator?
I have loved spin since the first time Ive ever tried it, I was instantly addicted. Spin is a workout that changes your body but doesn't feel like a chore to go to. The energy that spring generates is so contagious and it helps people achieve their fitness goals while having fun and making friends and who doesn't want more friends?!

How would you describe your style of class at YYC?
My style of class would be heavy, lots of climbs and hovers, I love songs that are easy to find the beat and always throwing in a sweet 80's remix.

What's the best trip you've been on?
The best trip I have ever been on was driving 38 hours and spending 3 weeks in Alaska
