Get to know our team member Erica. She is one of our spinning teachers.
Erica First and foremost, Erica has a passion for martial arts and holds a first degree black belt in Taekwondo. This passion inspired her to become a certified Les Mills Body Combat instructor in 2011, and then she expanded her instruction to general cardio kickboxing. Erica started taking Spin classes for my own personal fitness not long after and, with this new passion, she decided to become a certified Spin instructor in April of 2013.
What's your favorite thing about your job?
Watching new participants turn into passionate, "veteran" Spinners who learn to push themselves harder during each class.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm a geek! I love video games and technology!
Describe your job in a few words.
"Loudly encourage" everyone to push themselves to perform the best they can while on the Spinner bike, critique form throughout class to ensure everyone is being safe and maximizing their workout, and (hopefully) help my participants achieve their own sense of pride after our ride is over.
If we looked in your bag, what would we be surprised to find?
Food! I frequently meal prep at the beginnaing of the week so I have healthy options for lunch and snacks with me wherever I go (...because who doesn't like to eat?!)
