What is your Class style? Depends on the playlist and what type of riders are in the room. No class is ever the same. It’s all a freestyle mix of intervals, real rides, beat work, and a lot of positive encouragement. I never plan a ride, it’s all done on the fly. You'll push yourself beyond your expectations while “Enjoying the Ride” at the same time.
What genre of music do you like? Whatever our in-house DJ Jeannette Howard makes me. It seems like heavy current dance beats most of the time. We look for fast, heart pumping and upbeat music that match the ride intervals, and motivates our riders to push themselves while having fun.

I enjoy seeing people of all riding levels challenge themselves. I believe in hard work, setting goals, commitment, and always having a positive attitude... "No Challenge, No Change!"
What genre of music do you like? Music can be powerful motivator, & I love to mix it up. However, if you are in to Techno, you won't get much of it in my class. I am all about tempo, beat and LYRICS!

What is your Class style? I am a part-time spin teacher and when I teach.....Wow riders beware! I will yell at the riders like Brian and blow a whistle, do intervals like Philip, Dance and scream up 2,3,4 Down 2,3,4 like my boy Skyler (wiggling my *ss to the beat), focus on structure and help everyone like Emily, motivate with passion like Kim, and be perfect little angels like Sarah & Julia Yep, that’s how I’ll do it :-)
What genre of music do you like? I make most of the playlists for Enjoy the Ride MAUI and your request are always welcome. We try to mix a variety of music (current Dance, Funk, Pop, Hip Hop Beats and a little Techno to match the intervals so we can spin to the beat! If it makes you wanna jump and dance, I love it!

What is your fitness background? Schwinn Certified
What is your Class style? Utilizing both climbing skills and sprinting intervals, I try to replicate road and mountain rides as well as race senarios. These are workouts that both challenge both mental and physical abilities, bending your will until you feel you can’t push the cranks around one more time. Then the whistle blows, we catch our breath, high five, and plan our next ride!
What genre of music do you like? I try to find music that fits the ride/race tempo; usually between 120 - 130 bpm.....that doesn’t suck.
