As an avid outdoor cyclist, Melissa likes to approach her indoor cycling classes as if she is preparing for a big outdoor ride. That means there is a focus on building strength and endurance in each class all the while making it fun…..and turning the music up really loud. All levels will feel challenged and motivated.
Her small group HIIT classes focus on working the entire body. As a Certified Personal Trainer, she put her own spin on this style of class years ago to make her clients workouts with her as efficient and effective as possible. You will absolutely love how you feel when you finish one of these classes.

Sarah has been teaching Spinning classes for over twenty-five years and is a Star Instructor though Mad Dogg Athletics. With a background in Fitness and Personal Training through AFAA; and experience in many group exercise forums such as kickboxing, step aerobics, pilates and NYC ballet workout, her primary love is Spin.

Having taught in Massachusetts at Boston Sports Clubs and for the past twelve years in the Portland area, Sarah is an avid outdoor cyclist who has participated in many charity rides such as the AIDS ride from Boston to NYC and the Pan Mass Challenge. It all comes together in a spin class with bikes and riders willing to climb the hills together and fly like the wind on those seated flat roads!
Michele’s high intensity cardio spin sessions incorporate speed, strength, hill climbs, jumps, and isolations all choreographed to fun and motivating sound tracks. Her classes are challenging but easily modifiable to suit any fitness level.
Julie uses rhythm riding to construct her cycle classes. Riding to the beat is not only fun but can be easily related to outdoor riding. Julie uses a song’s double-time or halftime beat to determine the cadence. This motivates her riders to keep their cadence consistent during a song and uses the music’s energy to determine the intensity. Julie loves to use indoor cycling to prepare for different events and races. She has done the Trek Across Maine four times and has competed in several sprint and olympic triathlons in the area.
