Why Byklyn? BYKlyn has the vibe of the dance studios I knew as a kid. Ferocity, fun, and family. It’s a non-judgmental place where you can breathe and sweat it out with friends and just completely let go of the outside world. You walk out high-fiving each other and feeling on top of the world.

 

What's your class really like? You will ride to your edge in every class and then finish wondering where the time went. I want you to see results with pumping music that takes you on a journey. At the end of the day though, I'm a goofball, not a drill sergeant, so we'll laugh a little, groove a lot, and sweat like crazy.

 

What's your music vibe? Anything with a beat that drives you forward: electronic, classic rock and roll, hip hop, indie, disco, UK drum and bass and African drums. You can count on fresh tracks, exciting synchronized drills and new adventures.

 

Life beyond the BYK box: Working actor/comedy writer and lover of mountains, lakes, and all types of pie. My boyfriend Mike and I live on the border of Gowanus/Park Slope and love to explore Brooklyn as much as possible. Favorite spots: Sunny's Bar (oldest in the city! sailor bar), Four and Twenty Blackbirds (pie, duh), and Pizza Moto (more pie).


Anything else you want us to know? You can check out some of my many zany characters on my YouTube channel- Franny and Sam. Think I Love Lucy meets Key and Peele.

Why BYKlyn? BYKLyn is real:

-You’re going to be pleasantly greeted by a real person, not cheerfully assaulted by a fake happy person.

-You can wear a $300 outfit or the Kmart special, nobody cares.

-You will be treated with respect and dignity regardless of your experience and fitness level.

-You don't need to be cool, or try to be cool at BYKLyn. You just need to work hard and enjoy the tunes.


What’s your class really like: My classes are designed in a way that put you in charge of the intensity level. Depending on how you are feeling that day, you can easily customize your experience to be moderately challenging, difficult, or extremely challenging.


What’s your music vibe: A person once described my playlists as "Shuffle that's on shuffle." A single playlist can include Soulja Boy, Simon & Garfunkel, Rihanna, and something from a Broadway show. If you have very diverse musical taste, we will vibe well.


Life beyond the BYKbox: I'm a local, having lived in Park Slope since 2009. I also teach yoga and meditation. You'll find me in the park a lot with my Boston Terrier, Nelson. Being a dad to my 4 year old daughter keeps me quite busy (by always trying to keep her busy).

 

Anything else you want us to know:
In the early 2000s I appeared on the reality dating show Change Of Heart with a fake girlfriend. Before you ask, the only tape in existence has been lost.

Why BYKlyn? Why not? What's not to like. The vibe is Brooklyn all day every day... gritty, real and diverse.


What's your class really like? It depends. One day it could be a party on the bike. The next day we're digging deep in the trenches. But it's all good!


What's your music vibe? I love music and love to channel my inner DJ in my classes so you'll always get a healthy mix of every and anything. In my ultimate cycling class I would have my fave artists performing. What? A girl can dream?!


Life beyond the BYKbox: When I'm not at BYKlyn I teach at my own art-based play-school.


Anything else you want us to know:
Cycling, family, traveling, good food.
