“As I have spent the past 6 years riding primarily outside on the road, I transmit that into my spin classes.  For example, in classes, I will take you on a mimic version of Santa Fe to Taos, up to the Santa Fe ski valley, and all over the world.  I love the ability to push others and transmit my passion of pushing the body and being fit onto those around me.  So come out … or in for a ride with me and lets push some pedals!”

I am a super active person.  I have revolved my entire life around sports and pushing my body through exercise.  Since I was little I have been a runner and a cyclist, reaching the professional level in both sports. Now I have fallen in love with teaching spin and have also fallen in love with the multisport lifestyle and currently I have dedicated myself to triathlon and instructing spin classes.
