Why BYKlyn? BYKlyn is a lot of things — friendly, personable, diverse, down to earth, tough, spunky (I could do this all day) — but, at its heart of hearts, it's about YOU. It's not about trends; it's about celebrating individuality, whatever your fitness intentions are. It's hard to feel out of place when there are so many different kinds of people supporting each others' goals, and I dig that.


What’s your class really like: I like to fuse high intensity, sweat pouring down your face drills with humor. Think of it as pushing yourself beyond your perceived limitations by embracing discomfort rather than shying away from it ... while I say goofy things into a microphone :)


What’s your music vibe: Like the fitness version of Coachella, with the occasional 80s/90s throwback party. My class is music-driven, so when in doubt, find the beat.


Life beyond the BYKbox: I'm a journalist by day, passionate about stories with moral force and very clean style and grammar. I have a beautiful and slightly diabolical orange cat named Gouda ("Gooey") and in my spare time I like running and yoga, reading the internet, and eating.
