I am a husband, father, triathlete, and die hard music lover! My passion is cycling and inspiring people to be the best they can be at any moment. I incorporate fun, inspiration, and some killer music into each and every one of my classes. I have been blessed to teach these amazing classes for over 10 years. During this time, I have been voted one of Austin's Fittest by Austin Fit magazine, Best Cycle Instructor, Best Triathlete, and Person of the Year by TRIBEZA. In my spare time I DJ events, and compete in local triathlons and Ironman races.
I am a two-time Ironman finisher, marathoner, and I am passionate about health and fitness. My husband and four children are my first love. They inspire me every day to be a better wife, mother, friend, and instructor. My music is eclectic and fun. I will play everything from 70's music to your favorite Broadway tunes (and an occasional remix). I believe when you combine the physical, mental, and musical aspects of this workout that it becomes a spiritual experience.
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I was fortunate enough to go to The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York where I received my Bachelors degree. Since moving back to Austin almost three years ago, I became completely immersed in rhythm based indoor cycling classes. I’ve never found a workout that I’ve been able to stick with until this. Indoor cycling has completely changed my life and overall health, mentally and physically.
I blend my background in athletics and LOVE of the ride to create a LOVING and sweaty journey. Growing up playing sports, I attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY to compete at the D1 level for swimming, while earning my degree in Fashion Merchandising. My passion for fashion carried me across the country to NYC, but instead I found my LOVE for teaching, which led me into the arms of LOVE in Austin. Now rocking the podium instead of the pool, I encourage riders to embrace their inner badass while getting stronger with every pedal stroke.
When I am not dancing on the bike at LOVE, I am across the street at Cowan & Associates, PLLC, practicing Estate Planning and Probate law. I am married to a very patient man with whom I share three wonderful children. I am grateful for any downtime with friends and family, running, and other workouts, but keeping up with my kids’ schedules is by far the most challenging and gratifying workout I receive.
I'm a native Texan hailing from Houston. After attending the University of Texas, I married my best friend and began to plant permanent roots in Austin. I have a beautiful daughter who fills my life with so much joy and keeps me very busy. My passion for health and fitness led me to where I am today. I am a certified Les Mills Instructor specializing in Body Combat & Body Pump. I truly feel I finally found my fitness passion at LOVE. This workout has transformed me from the inside out and I can't wait to share the LOVE with the Austin community.
A lover of all things fitness, I am either running on Townlake or training with my friends at Crossfit South Lamar. Outside of the fitness world, my passion for music flows through every part of my life. I am usually playing my guitar and singing at a local bar or building the next hip spin playlist with everything from Lil Wayne to Stromae. When I am not focused on a good workout, my inner foodie shines through. You can find me checking out the newest restaurant in Austin or chilling at my favorite taco stand down the street!
Y'all, I LOVE to eat. A lot. In fact, that's what I do. I'm the Marketing Director for El Chile Group, a family of restaurants with 6 (soon to be 8) locations throughout Austin. We do Mexican, Seafood, Tex-Mex, y mas! Needless to say, I spend the majority of my time eating and drinking and I'll try anything twice!
BUT, I balance my routine by teaching high energy spin classes. I like my music loud and my beats fast. I love to challenge myself and my riders with lengthy endurance tracks that push us to our physical and spiritual limits. I want you to leave feeling energized, accomplished, motivated, and excited to come back for more.
Aside from my work life in the digital advertising world, spin, music, food and family are my everything! When I'm not crafting a kickass playlist, I am listening to one of my favorite oldies records with a glass of wine, whipping up a tasty new cupcake, or my sister Morgan (also a Love Cycling Studio Instructor) and I are dancing and singing in the kitchen, playing with fun recipes to add to our creations! I believe everything you do/have/want should bring a different level of happiness and positivity into your life. It ultimately creates the LOVE you have for yourself and LOVE people have for you!
The center of my universe are my two wonderful teenage children. We are a wild tribe that love to laugh out loud and live BIG! When I am not chasing teenagers, working out and playing DJ on a bike, I am standing up to cancer! I am blessed to work for an incredible company dedicated to delivering innovative medicines to help patients with cancer. Whether I am on the bike teaching or in meetings at a cancer center, my work is about creating something better for others. Which when you think about it, that is NOT work at all, but rather a blessing. You can expect crazy loud beats in my class combined with pure love and encouragement.
A Texas boy at heart, CJ grew up in Houston playing competitive tennis and volleyball. After moving to Austin to study Marketing at Texas State, he eventually found his way to Lululemon where he is currently a Key Leader at the store in Barton Creek Mall. It wasn't log before the Lululemon culture and his passion for all types of music lead him to his first class at Love Cycling Studio. It was LOVE at first ride and he was instantly addicted.
In CJ's classes you can find an eclectic combination of music - remixes, mashups, driving beats with soaring melodies and inspirational harmonies.
Join him to sweat, dance, feel and most importantly express what's inside!
