As a lifelong athlete, she had to find another way to channel her competitive nature and throw an endorphin party when the big leagues inevitably didn’t draft her. Erin walked into CycleFit to discover a lavender-scented sanctuary, where the instructors and classes were nothing short of exceptional. She is thrilled to share her love for music, fitness, good vibes, and laughs with y’alllls.

Stacey

Growing up I was very involved in tennis and volleyball and went on to play DI volleyball at Towson. After graduating, I coached club volleyball for several years (which I loved!), but still felt like something was missing. I started taking cycling classes at the gym I belong to and fell in love with it. CycleFit provides the team atmosphere that I felt was missing after my volleyball career ended. When the opportunity to be part of a place with such a positive, empowering environment presented itself I couldn’t pass it up!

All time favorite song: Springsteen – Eric Church

Favorite Quote: “Just keep swimming” – Finding Nemo

Elise

I first stepped into CycleFit as a client, looking for a positive change in my life. It’s so easy to get caught up in life and not prioritize our self-care.  From my first class I was hooked. I found myself looking forward everyday to going to spin just to relieve my daily stressors and to simply have fun in a nonjudgmental space. During that one hour I get to dance, sing, sweat, and feel good! When I  was approached regarding being a cyclefit instructor, I decided to take on the ultimate challenge, and I’ve never looked back!!
