I’m from New York (sorry, Orioles fans) and came to Maryland to attend the University of Maryland, College Park (GO TERPS!). I have been teaching spin for nearly six years. I would have never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would move from the crowd to the stage of a spin class but the experience has been amazing.
As someone who has struggled with my weight for my entire life, I pride myself on trying to make exercise approachable for everyone – regardless of shape, gender or size.
Let’s face it, working out is hard. I try to mix the hard work with a little humor, some fun and some good music – it usually makes the time go by faster. As I always tell my classes “smiling burns more calories.” I will push you to go outside your comfort zone but I will always do it with a smile.
Random things to know about me? I’m addicted to coffee and 90’s hip hop and boy band music. I’ve completed 5 marathons and a bunch of halfs and smaller races – and while I don’t think of myself as a runner, I do believe in the saying that “The expert in anything was once a beginner.”
Bottom line, we all have to start somewhere.
I LOVE helping people get healthy both inside and outside the studio — so I’m always eager to get your emails, questions and song requests.
