After recovering from major back surgery, and reaching my 50th birthday, I made the decision to take better care of myself. That's when I met Zoltan!
In 2010 I began a journey that would have a lasting positive impact on my entire life. I became stronger, healthier and happier. This eventually inspired me to become a certified Spinning instructor at age 54! I am proof that it is never too late to begin your fitness journey.
My passion for Spinning comes from my desire to help others. Spinning is for all ages, fun and a challenging work out. I also love the camaraderie Spinning provides. Hope to see you on a bike !
