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 started teaching indoor cycling in out in L.A. back in 2012 and with a background in entertainment, I’ve always thrived on the podium. Soon after, I moved to NYC and began teaching at Flywheel. After a successful 4.5 years at Flywheel, I then flew off to Shanghai to start one of the first boutique indoor cycling studios in China. Landing back in the L.A. in 2017, I started working as a Senior Master instructor for Cyclebar. I traveled the country running bootcamps, training instructors and consulting with the franchisees.  Now I’m back in NYC and so excited to be joining the sweatconnected team!
My classes are high energy, super fun, challenging, and cathartic.
My goal in class is for you to transcend to a place outside of your everyday life through motivational music, communal energy, and joyful movement.

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!
