I have been teaching Spinning classes at with JCC since March 2009. My classes are a mix of fun and fitness. I try to use music in sync with motivation to get riders to push themselves outside their comfort levels. In addition, I am a strong believer in visualization, which means even though we are riding inside, I try to mentally put you outside on that nice winding road. The playlists are always fresh, and member's music suggestions are always welcome!
