The stress of college had me eating smothered, covered, chunked, scattered… and washing it down with white Russians… needless to say that did not fare well for my physique! I started small, just by walking and eliminating cream sauce, cheese and fried food. I was amazed how small changes worked! Next thing you know I was run/walking… and finally just running (I’ve since completed 2 full marathons, over 20 halfs and tons of 5/10K’s)! Group fitness and indoor cycling kept my cross training fun and after losing about 50 lbs. I decided I’d love to be an instructor. The rest is history. I’ve been Fittour Certified as well as CPR/AED and First Aid for nearly 15 years. Check out my high energy class and feel free to let me know your favorite song so I can add it to my playlist and come see what indoor cycling can do for you!!
Jenn is from Louisiana but lived in San Francisco for three. Having to walk up all the hills in San Francisco she was forced to get in shape and fell in love with spinning and started teaching. She loves the rhythm of the music and finding the perfect pedal stroke to match the beat of a high energy song. It is a great form of exercise and stress reliever for all ages, shapes and sizes. Come rock or dance with Jenn on Thursday nights and let the beat find you.
My name is Beatriz and I recently moved to NOLA from FL.
I have been practicing spin for 20 years, but after 14 years I decided to get certified and start teaching and I love it!
I really enjoy when people keep coming to class. That motivates me to plan better classes.
If you have never tried spin, I will help you to set up. If you are an advanced rider, I will keep pushing you!
Mary Catherine, or MC starting taking spin classes at a local YMCA in Philadelphia at the age of 16 as a way to cross-train for high school sports.Since her first class, with the lights dimmed and the music turned up, she was hooked!
MC played Division I field hockey and club ice hockey for Columbia University and continued to coach and play field hockey after college. In 2011, she moved to New Orleans to pursue a masters degree in Architecture at Tulane University. While running through the parks and along bayou St. John, she fell in love with New Orleans and decided to make NOLA home. With a distinct lack of field hockey in the area she returned to her love of indoor cycling, got certified, and the rest is history!
One of her favorite parts about teaching spin is stepping out of everyday life and taking on the role of coach. “I love the process of planning a class, from the moves to the music! Executing the plan for a class and seeing the ways each individual rider responds is exciting and keeps me on my toes, trying new things and thinking up new ways to make my classes fun!”
