about

With over ten years of experience in the fitness world, I started in boutique fitness on a spin bike. I now own and operate DDB Fitness, which offers personal training, and founded sweatconnected in response to COVID-19. Right after gyms closed in NYC, I took my classes online. As business grew, it became clear that it was possible to recreate the magic of group fitness online.

For me, fitness is much more than a workout. It is community. It is release. I believe in the power of fitness to be transformative and FUN. My goal is to spread joy with each pedal stroke (or burpee) and I can’t wait for you to be a part of the journey.

My greatest accomplishments are my two boys, Hudson & Arlo, to which I give half the credit to my incredible husband Robbie.

about

As a former dancer, movement and music has always been a driving force in my life. I found indoor cycling after the birth of my daughter and was immediately hooked. I was so drawn to the bike that I left my former career as a corporate event planner to get certified and begin teaching.

Prior to joining sweatconnected, I was Master Instructor with one of the nation’s largest and most successful indoor cycling studios. With over ten years of experience teaching group fitness, my goal is to bring a fun mix of energy, passion and intensity to each of my classes. I can’t wait to see you in class!

classes

RIDE with Arms- 45 minutes. The RIDE you love, with a quick upper body toning and strengthening sequence at the end. Light weights (2-5 lbs) suggested.

currently listening to

Stevie Wonder, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, Robyn, anything from the 80s

about

I have been a leading fitness instructor in Boston for the past 12 years. My passion for movement started at an early age growing up dancing, (all styles including Hawaiian!), playing sports, and studying martial arts. My teaching career started while attending College of the Holy Cross where I lead the dance ensemble as a tap choreographer and kickboxing instructor. I have always kept fitness and wellness a major part of my life. After a successful 10 years in Human Resources, I shifted my focus and career to fitness full time. Since 2013 I have taught and trained over 600 people a week in Boston as a Master Instructor at Flywheel Sports and founding trainer at Barry’s Boston, including celebrity clients. I have trained and mentored some of the top instructors from Boston to New York to DC and I am a legacy Nike Trainer, Lululemon ambassador, and currently signed Maggie Inc model representing top brands such as New Balance, Reebok, and Asics. When I am teaching virtually on and off-bike from my condo in the South End, you will most likely catch a glimpse of my labradoodle pup, Gino, doing something very mischievous!

In my classes you will find fun upbeat music with a mix of throwbacks and things you’ve never heard. My classes are motivating, Intense, challenging but always a great time. I look forward to us riding together!

about

I discovered my love of indoor cycling after my first daughter was born. Having a place to escape, to find myself again and becoming a part of an amazing community meant everything to me. After my second daughter was born, I decided I needed to help people find what I had found. I became certified to teach in 2010 and there my career as an indoor cycling instructor began. From my first day on that podium, I knew that I had found what I was meant to do.

From boutique studios, to gym studios, to Flywheel, I have spent the last 11 years following my passion by creating that same safe space I needed and found for myself, for other people to tune out their noise, lose themselves listening to music and sweat it out together. Teaching indoor spin has always been more than a cycling class to me. The energy of that feeling is what drives me to bring that joy and elation each and every time I teach. I love watching my riders discover their power. In my classes you’ll find an infectious energy fueled by my LOVE of music. It will distract you from the challenging ride I have created especially for you!
