WHAT MAKES YOU DANCE

"Spreading Positive Energy"

I believe positive energy doesn’t just help us better enjoy our daily lives, it also impacts our health and relationships.  Some days it comes easily and on others we have to work for it.   

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, fitness has acted as a way for me to reset since I was a young child.  I have vivid memories of walking onto the pool deck as an adolescent, carrying what felt like the weight of the world on my shoulders.  Once I powered off the wall in a tight streamline it was like I immediately sliced through the tension of my day, leaving it in the wake behind me. As an adult, I now understand the gift my parents and coaches were giving me.

As a cycle instructor I get to assist people in giving their brains a rest which is key in processing the challenges we face each day.  Each cycling class is an opportunity to add some play into your day, releasing the feel-good endorphins we need to keep ourselves positive. Helping others boost the positive energy they need to face the challenges of their day is extremely rewarding to me.

As an entrepreneur and mother of two young children I often find myself in need of a reset.  The bikes, music and lights at All City Riders are my saving grace.  They are what allows me to shed any unwanted negativity and walk out into the world sporting a smile on my face.  The very smile that I wear when I dance.
