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. :)


Anything else you want us to know:
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!
