Motivator Feature - Emily Cheffins


Q: What's the best memory you have so far being part of the YYC Cycle journey?

Em: It's hard to single out just one favourite memory, but the last class I taught before leaving for a circus gig this past summer, I came in to the entire studio decorated like a circus tent: streamers, balloons, floor to ceiling. It was pretty special. That, or when someone wrote "Emily's quads are inspirational" on a comment card.

Q: For those who don’t know, what’s your favourite type of music to jam out to?

Em: Hip hop, obnoxious rap (clean versions, of course!), guilty pleasures, a little dance hall, and a good mid-class throw back to boost morale.

Q: When you’re not motivating, what can you be found doing?

Em: At Talisman, with Nino, or at Talisman with Nino.

Q: What would you tell someone who is nervous about coming to try a spin class?

Em: I was nervous, too! The hardest part is showing up. Bring a friend! And if you don't, you'll probably leave with a new one :)

Q: What’s something not many people would know about you?

Em: I hold the NCAA Div. I varsity record at the University of Wisconsin in 10 meter platform diving.

Q:What’s one of your biggest fears?

Em: Not living life to the fullest.

Q: What are you most proud of?

Em: Having the courage to pursue my dreams.

Q: Other than spin, what’s your favourite way to sweat?

Em: Strength training, bike rides with my Dad, and anything involving flipping, bending, bouncing, or being upside down.

Q: What are you going to miss most?

Em: Being close to the people I love.

Q: When can the Bikergang ride out with you next?

Em: Brenna and I are doing a team teach on May 31st at 5:15pm, and my last class will be June 4th at noon at MRDA followed by a Village Ice Cream field trip/farewell celebration at the new Garrison Woods location!
