What to expect:
This class runs for 50–60 minutes (usually an hour, some interval classes are shorter). Class profiles will vary from climbing classes to short high-intensity intervals to longer high-end aerobic intervals to drills and technique improvement classes. I also love a good theme ride!
All of my profiles have a clear objective and everything we do in class is based on proper cycling training and science. I like to make my classes engaging and fun. Most of the time, we ride to the beat on the working segments (with modifications provided). You can dissociate from the beat on recoveries and cool-downs.
Mental strength coaching is my specialty, so you can expect to learn how to focus, develop your own mantras and affirmations, and how to dig in deep and motivate yourself when the going gets tough. These are all mental skills that transfer to any physical or life challenge you may face outside of class.
My music is chosen to match the message of the profile in energy, tempo, and focus. I love to include as many genres as possible and songs may come from all decades from the 60's to current day. That said, I have a particular affinity for world music and downtempo beats. Oh...and I love classic rock 'n' roll! And indie!
What you won't find in these classes:
Everything we do on the bike has a purpose. You won't find any fluff in my classes—no weights, no pushups, no tap-backs—but you definitely will find yourself being challenged. While there usually isn't a lot of ups and downs, I offer options for those who may need to come out of the saddle more often, and for those who are more outdoor cycling focused, the option to sit for longer periods.
What to bring:
Make sure to bring your water bottle, a towel, and plenty of determination and commitment!
