What genre of music do you like? I try to mix a variety of music (current Dance, Funk, Pop, Hip Hop Beats and a little Techno) to match the intervals so we can spin to the beat! If it makes you wanna jump and dance, I love it!

​​What is your Class style?  Utilizing both climbing skills and sprinting intervals I try to replicate road and mountain rides as well as race scenarios.  These are workouts that both challenge both mental and physical abilities, bending your will until you feel you can’t push the cranks around one more time.  Then the whistle blows, we catch our breath, high five, and plan our next ride!
