What motivates you about being a motivator?
My amazing people. The types of people that amazing communities like YYC CYCLE attracts overfill my cup to no end. Everything from the connections through glances and smiles that I share with the biker gang, the authentic conversations we have, to engaging in some serious ass-kicking, adrenaline junkie sweat sessions together is so rewarding. I am always grateful when I sit on that bike in a room with such brave, authentic, and powerful people. The energy from everyone is so rewarding and part of the spin addiction that I love so much. We are changing each other, and as a Motivator, I am just as motivated by the biker gang and my fellow motivators, (if not more), as they are me. We are the luckiest.
How would you describe your style of class at YYC?
ADRENALINE JUNKIE HEAVEN! I loooooooove blasting it out at the end of the day together. Sweat, killers jams, dance parties, and laughing are four of my favorite things. At YYC CYCLE, you can get it all in the same place.
My background lies in competitive sports. I played college hockey in the NCAA during university, winning a national title with the University of Minnesota-Duluth. I was a competitive ringette player my whole life, and played in the National Ringette League the past two years, where we won a National Championship as well.
I love to race in many half-marathons/marathons, and push to place in my age category. I am an avid yoga practicer and recently completed my 200hr Yoga Alliance certification this past fall. The commitment I have/had to these sports in my life has not disappeared, but rather transferred into my SPIN MOTIVATOR title, which I couldn't be more happy about.
