What motivates me about being a motivator?

I have never had more fun working out than when on the bike. The rhythm, the passion, the group energy, the challenge and the community… it is all of the above and more. The adrenaline I get when spinning is incredible, I have never walked out of a spin class without a smile… and I am always looking forward to the next time in that room or out on my bike… if I didn’t RIDE to class :D

Now if I can connect with other people and make them feel the same way, it doubles that happiness. The energy in the room is incredibly powerful, positivity is infectious(in the most positive sense of the word) so thanks to everyone! See you in class.

How would you describe your style of class at YYC?
Beat-bumpin’ Energy Overload((in the most positive sense of the word). I like to think that no matter who you are or what kind of a day you are having before class there will always be at least one song that you will be able to groove out completely to… ideally all of them though :) I like to think that « my » class is really « our » class and so I try to make my playlists relatively varied.
From old school hip hop to real nasty house to Beyoncé?… whatever gets me hyped up

 

What is your favorite food or drink in the whole world? 

A really fresh espresso and a square of chocolate…. I love chocolate…

 

Who is your all-time hero?
