When did you first discover YYC CYCLE, and what were your thoughts?
I had recently relocated to Calgary and was looking for a fitness facility to call home. I was a timid stressed out student who had lost her gym mojo. I was simply looking for an outlet to evacuate some of my stress and the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals. I tried several fitness facilities but they all lacked something. Soon after, I discovered YYC CYCLE through social media. Shortly after the grand opening, I decided to try my luck one last time by committing to it for 2 weeks. My first class with Andrew was magical, I knew I was hooked and I've been a faithful Bikergang member ever since. The motivators have taken exercise/spin to another level. The energy behind those close doors is electric and contagious. Each class I attend makes me come back for more. I've been a bikergang member for 6 months now and joining is the best decision I've made this year. Spin has become a therapeutic bike party experience to me. My new motto is "spin more, worry less".
What does being part of the YYC CYCLE Bikergang mean to you?
Being part of the YYC Bikergang is such as honor to me. It is such a supportive and loving community to be a part of. The motivator are genuinely caring people and they make you feel like family and to me, it is priceless.
The YYC CYCLE Bikergang is all about supporting each other and our goals. What are some of your big goals?
I strive to become the strongest, fittest and healthiest version of me. Fitness is such in important platform in my life, it has changed my life. Inspiration is contagious and my goal is to inspire and motivate people around me. I want to share my love for fitness and my enthusiasm for spin with others.
What would you tell people who are wanting to get into spin, but may be afraid to attend a class?
Do not let spin intimidate you. Spin has no boundaries! It is for everybody no matter the age, sex or fitness level. Spin caters as much to beginners as it does to athletes. Leave your ego at the door and commit yourself to the most important person, you! Each class will push you through your comfort zone but I promise you that you will become stronger mentally and physically. Added bonus, there is no better place to begin your spin journey than at YYC CYCLE.
Last, but not least, what is your favourite guilty pleasure?
I'm a die-hard peanut butter junkie, I can't live without it.
