Your name: Taverlee Jaye Kalanilehua Victoria Laskauskas
Your journey to CycleFit: Allie and I have a mutual friend, Stephanie, who first told me about CycleFit. I was intrigued, because I’d never heard of anything like CycleFit before, but I was hesitant that it wouldn’t be something I could do. I had never taken spin prior to meeting Allie, but she invited me to take her class. After one class, I was hooked. I met Brett and Kelly at that class, and Brett asked me if I would be interested in joining Team CycleFit. Of course, I jumped at the chance!
Favorite Author: Jane Austen
Must have gym bag item: A handball for fascial release in my feet
What’s on your playlist: A delightfully weird mix of chill singer-songwriters, rock and metal, and some salsa music
Favorite post-workout food: all the food…ever. Seriously, I don’t have one food that I always have to have. But I am famished after a workout, so I want to eat everything.
Who inspires you: Everyone who walks through the door at CycleFit; staff and clients alike. Above the Arena doors, there’s a sign that says “Everyone Is Battling Something”. I know that everyone I see has something in their life that they are struggling with, and despite that, or maybe because of that, they walk in, get on a bike, and discover that they are stronger than they think.
Who would you like to chat with over dinner: Misty Copeland
Not including CycleFit, what’s your favorite fitness activity: Dance!
