Jill A.

Jill is from Northeast Philadelphia and has lived here most of her life. In the year, she bought a house in Somerton with her fiance. Fitness has been a huge part of her life since college and has become a part of her daily routine.  As a social worker, she is a strong believer in self-care and feeling good about her workouts and nutrition. It helps her sustain and (almost) stress-free life! A fun workout with friends should be a hobby, not a chore! She participates in HIIT classes and has recently entered the cycling community and can not wait for this new journey. 

Christy M.

Christy is thrilled to be an instructor at the first cycling studio in our area.  She was introduced to cycling years ago by Dana, the owner of Northeast Cycle.  It was at that time she fell in love with the way cycling challenged her mentally and physically. Therefore, she is really looking forward to helping her riders challenge themselves each class and achieve their personal goals. Aside from cycling, Christy loves distance running, yoga, and all things related to health and fitness!

Maureen R.

Maureen is a person who is passionate about fitness, and fully believes in its benefits, both mental and physical! She got into cycling a few years ago when she could no longer run (her first true-love in terms of cardio) due to a knee injury she sustained. So, to sustain the mental and health benefits she personally achieves from fitness, she turned to cycling, an activity she enjoyed so much that she decided to become an AAA-ISMA certified instructor! Maureen feels cycling is an exercise that people of all ages and abilities can thoroughly enjoy and benefit from! She enjoys creating classes to fit any and all abilities, whether you’re a first-time rider or just finished the iconic Tour-De-Shore. She enjoys getting to know the people and clients she serves, so that she can best serve them! So come in for a class! Maureen can’t wait to ride with you!

Sarah Y.

I became interested in fitness about four years ago when I quit smoking. I wanted something to keep me busy. Within months, I found myself lifting, cycling, and running. I decided to get certified in indoor cycling to support local businesses and boost interest. When I am not cycling, I am teaching fourth graders, down the shore, going to concerts, trying new wineries, or cheering on all Philadelphia Sports teams!

Shelby M.

Hi!! I am Shelby and I am 26 years old. I live in Northeast Philadelphia. I am a server, bartender, dog mom, and student at Community College of Philadelphia. Taking cycling classes has become a huge part of my life and has helped me to lose 30 lbs over the past year. I decided to get certified to teach classes so that I can share my love for indoor cycling with others! I am super excited to start my journey as an instructor!

Rita D.

In 2014, I started a health journey that led to shedding some weight through a lot of endurance training and yoga. After getting tired of running, I decided I needed a new routine in my life which led me to my first indoor cycling class and the rest is history! During the school year, I teach high school students at Neumann-Goretti. When I am not on a bike, I am spending time with my family and friends or hanging out with my dog, Frankie. Quarantine allowed me to make time and accomplish my goal of becoming a certified cycling instructor. I look forward to making every ride a party with great sing along music that sets every rider up for success in the class and beyond with contagious positivity!

Kristin W.

Kristin’s journey with cycling began about 5 years ago as she embarked on a 2-day charity bike ride totaling 180 miles ride throughout Massachusetts. The ride was raising money for cancer research, which is near and dear to Kristin's heart as her dad had just recently beat cancer. She has been hooked ever since. She continues to do outdoor rides, specifically the ACS Bike-A-Thon and the Families Behind the Badge Ben to the Shore, but now her dad joins her. Although an avid outdoor cyclist, Kristin decided to try things indoors. The music is what drew her in. High energy, loud and upbeat music, encouraging instructors - what more could you ask for?! You can expect classes with Kristin to encompass all of the above, all while getting a great workout. Kristin is also a certified yoga instructor and teaches as local studios and gyms in the Northeast. In addition to cycling and yoga, Kristin works as an analyst at a local hospital. When she is not working or teaching, Kristin is most likely spending time with her husband, Matt, and beautiful baby boy, Flynn.
