**PROOF OF VACCINATION IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND**
Bio: Originally from Calgary, grew up in London and lived in Toronto for 7 years. I previously taught & managed at a popular Toronto studio before moving to create Lost Cycle. I tend to put all my energy into my classes so my intensity is usually at 100 when I'm on the podium. You will likely see me dancing around at any given moment. I'm the one covered in tattoos!
Class Style: My class is typically FAST. I love a quick beat and challenging riders to push their endurance at their own level. Whether you're in the saddle or out, it is your ride! I am here to guide you through the 50min journey each time.
Music: Anything with a heavy bass is sure to catch my attention. I am drawn to music that provokes emotion whether excitement, anger, happiness, emotional memories, etc. I encourage you to feel it out. I play a lot of Deep House/EDM but you'll likely hear Reggaeton and Hip Hop too!
Why I get LOST: I have always loved music and my dance background has allowed me to express myself through movement for a long time. I chose to instruct Rhythm Riding because I wanted to show people the benefits of riding to loud music and letting go of their day to day. I believe that getting lost allows you to move with less impact on your joints while giving your whole body a workout. I believe in the dark room we can be whoever we want to be without worry, judgement or fear.
Instructor Training Manager
Bio: I’m a former ballet dancer - spin is my latest adventure in movement and creativity. I’m also a PhD candidate at Western, so you’ll usually find me typing away on my laptop.
Class Style: My class is well-balanced and focused on clear movement progressions so that riders can learn and practice the skills we teach during class and still feel challenged by pace or movement combinations. My class is great for new and experienced riders. In my class, there are no expectations for perfection or ‘doing it right’. It is your ride, not mine, and I’m equally happy if you are tapping it back along with me or riding and enjoying the music.
Music: I consistently play EDM, house, and pop remixes. You’ll be able to sing along to some tracks, and get lost in a steady beat during others.
Why I get LOST: My ‘why’ for teaching fitness in general is to address some of the negative experiences I had as a client in other gyms. I wanted to put myself in the role of an instructor so that I could ensure that those who came to my classes would not have to hear BS about summer bodies or what they needed to change about themselves. I teach from the belief that fitness can be different than what it has been, and that it needs to be different. I teach from a body respect framework, acknowledging the incredible things our bodies do for us and that our relationships with our bodies are unique to each of us. The physical aspect of rhythm riding, moving my body to the beat of the music, is cathartic for me - it’s almost a meditative experience, and I want to share that with those who come to my class.
Bio: Born and raised in Hamilton Ontario. Spent a few years in Toronto, where I fell in love with Spinning. Fun fact: I actually used to spin with Courtney there! Outside of spin, I work in sales for a local company.
Class Style: ENERGY! The goal of my class is when you leave to feel energized and accomplished with a smile on your face. You will find a combination of jogs, sprints and climbs. It will be fast and fun at the same time. I will make sure that you are having the best time possible while getting your sweat on.
Music: My classes typically are a mix of EDM, hip-hop and always at least one COUNTRY song. I love a good remix and something I can sign along too. You will typically see me dancing and singing along to most of the music I play.
Why I get LOST: Spin is my release. For me it is incredibly cathartic. The movement, music and dark room allow me to forget about everything that I am stressed or worried about. It is a time for me to dedicate to myself and my mental health. Mental health is something that I have struggled with in the past and exercise and spin have been my outlet. My goal is for each and every rider to leave my class feeling better than when they walked in
Bio: Born and raised in London, Ontario. I am currently continuing my education pursuing a diploma in the Developmental Services program. I have a strong belief in the importance of helping others and providing an inclusive environment for those around me. After almost 2 years and 200+ classes later, I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to help motivate others to reach their own goals!
Class Style: The ultimate goal of my class is to create an atmosphere for riders to work their bodies and free their minds while motivating them in an athletic class that is fun and challenging at the same time. Through good vibes, upbeat music and dance-worthy playlists, let’s use the darkroom, contagious energy and positive vibes to reach not only our own goals, but encourage and motivate those around us to crush theirs.
Music: You can expect mood-boosting playlists combining EDM/ pop remixes, “vibey” tunes and the occasional throwback. I believe that providing high energy, uplifting music will allows riders to leave the room with a positive mindset.
Why I get LOST: Finding different ways to live an overall healthy, active lifestyle has always been a priority of mine. I remember the first time I completed a class at Lost Cycle shortly after the grand opening; the thought of becoming an instructor instantly crossed my mind. I knew that I wanted to be a part of a community with such contagious energy and understanding in the importance of inclusivity. I am passionate about projecting positivity, supporting goals and providing encouragement to riders within my classes, ultimately providing a space where they can get LOST.
Bio: Born and raised in Chatham Ontario and have lived in London for the last 6 years where I finished my graduate degree and am currently working in healthcare. I realized the importance of movement at an early age after being diagnosed with and treated for idiopathic scoliosis. Since walking through the doors to LOST for the first time, I felt right at home and knew this would be a newfound passion!
Class Style: My classes are a balance between calm and chaos and leave riders feeling accomplished and powerful. I very much enjoyed the anatomy and physiology part of my studies and I like to share tidbits of interesting information amongst motivational cues throughout class.
Music: Something I can really dance to whether it's upbeat or mellow. I love styles like EDM, pop or Caribbean. I'm there for the beat and interesting musical effects or sounds.
Why I get LOST: Rhythm riding is a natural way to boost my confidence and overall happiness. I am highly appreciative of all the fitness instructors that have delivered meaningful and memorable movement experiences to me in the past. I now find myself inspired to positively change people's daily life and have a proximal impact on fitness and health in my community.
Bio: Born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, I came to London when I was 18 to further my education. Here is where I discovered myself and started to build a better version of my life. I’m studying fitness and health and fell in love with spinning after my very first class at LOST. This will be my first time teaching - anywhere!
Class Style: Hype! I love intense sprints and fun climbs with a good beat. My goal is to make riders realize that they’re capable of absolutely anything and everything. I want riders to leave my class feeling proud of themselves.
Music: Mostly EDM with some fun throwbacks. I’m constantly listening to music, looking for new songs to jam out to. I’m a sucker for themes, too. I make it easy for riders to find, keep, and feel the beat from beginning to end.
Why I get LOST: I’m a strong believer that sometimes you need to get LOST to find yourself. I’m a huge advocate for positive mental and physical health, and I believe that everyone deserves the chance to feel their absolute best. For me, getting LOST is a chance to release your emotions, whether it’s stress, anger, sadness, happiness, or excitement. It’s way more than just ‘riding a bike.’
Bio: Theatre practitioner, former figure skater, music lover and long distance road cyclist. I love mixing my passions together and rhythm riding is just that!
Class Style: My class style is fast, furious and most of all ... FUN. It is well-balanced with a good mix of jogs, sprints and climbs to get the full body experience. Some tracks will have lots of choreography while other tracks will be about holding those sprints or climbs to build endurance or power. Whatever we're doing in the room together, I am here to support you. Remember it's your ride so I'm happy whether you're doing all the moves or riding and enjoying the music.
Music: You're going to find a lot of hard-hitting EDM in my class with big drops, driving rhythms and strong and gritty beats. I'm also partial to queer anthems including remixes of your favourite divas, disco, probably some ABBA and more. We are going to have a good time and PARTY together on the bike.
Why I get LOST: Spinning is where I can let go of all of the worries and stresses of the outside world and allow them to dissipate. I feel in tune with my body and focus on building power, stamina and strength. It's pivotal to the maintenance of my physical and mental health and I always feel free and ready to conquer life's challenges when I leave. I look forward to sharing it with all of you.
