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.

Why BYKlyn? The diversity within the BYKlyn community is a beautiful thing and it's a big part of why I love this studio. People of all races, cultures, fitness levels, ages, sexes, etc can come together for 45min to just sweat it out, and it truly connects us. You can feel that positive energy, that "spread love" vibe, that Brooklyn spirit... it's unlike anywhere else I've taught and it's quite inspiring.
What’s your class really like: I coach a dynamic, high intensity ride. Music is important to me so I create beat driven rides that also have purpose and result-oriented programming built into them. I encourage you to feel an array of both physical and emotional ups and downs as we move through the workout. It's a journey... clip in and enjoy the ride!
What’s your music vibe: Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Electronic... some of my fav artists are Imagine Dragons, Galantis, Demi Lovato, Beyonce, Major Lazer, Kendrick Lamar, The Chainsmokers
Life beyond the BYKbox: With a background in fashion & fitness, I am developing my own fit-leisure brand...coming 2018! Socially, I enjoy eating out with friends, exploring NYC, and I'm all about spontaneous dance parties... no shame in my dance party game! I also enjoy doing hot yoga & strength training. Can't live without Coffee and PB. I love to travel and I'm always down for a road trip in my red car, which I've named Esmeralda because she's a little gypsy, hippie soul like me. :)

I spent most of last year living on an island... from Ometepe, Nicaragua to St Croix, USVI... yes, it was amazing and no, I will never take a hot shower for granted again!

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.
