What motivates you about being a motivator?

I love seeing others achieving their fitness goals, it gives me goosebumps! The greatest coach I know and shared with me the 5 H's he lives by and so do I, Heart, Hills, Humility, Hunger & Hardwork. If I can motivate you to challenge yourself in a killer spin class then what a better way to spend 50 minutes! When everyone is working their hardest and putting it on the line, the spin room is electric and everyone can feel it- that is motivation enough for me!

 

How would you describe one of your style of classes at YYC?

Fun but tough, I hope you like hills, and Missy Elliott...
But seriously let's get this party started! I like to bring what I know from cycling and when you are in the middle of going up a steep hill or fighting a head wind you have to power through because there is no other way to get home. It takes guts and perseverance to make the change you want to see in yourself. So keep those legs moving biker gang!

 

If you could be any Ninja Turtle, which one would you be?

I would be Raphael ;)

 

If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavour, what would it be and why?

I would probably be cayenne pepper & chocolate, because i am all fired up!

 

How can we find you on #instagram?
