I moved to Cincinnati in September 2013 after living in northwest Indiana for 22 years. I have a B.A. in public speaking and currently work in accounting.
I first came to Power Ryde in July 2015 after two years of fighting an ankle injury that prevented me from running. High-intensity cardio had always acted as a stress-reliever for me, and I was losing my mind without it! I thought I’d try a spin class because of the low-impact nature of cycling, but had no idea what I was in for. I remember the first time I came to the studio; I was SO nervous, but Meg was incredibly helpful in showing me the ropes and Amy led the class with an energy I had not encountered in a group fitness class before. I was hooked. My favorite thing about Power Ryde is that I never get bored. Every instructor has their own style of music, movement and teaching. The possibilities are endless! Ultimately, I want my ryders to leave feeling strong, accomplished and excited to return.
