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!

about

My enthusiasm and true passion for a healthy lifestyle all started while growing up on the beaches of South Florida. Surfing was a way of life for me until my 18th birthday when I decided to head to New York to pursue an education in all things health and wellness. As much as I loved the change of pace in NYC I was missing the movement that was such a big part of my life. Indoor Cycling and myself found each other. As soon as I clipped in and the sweat poured, I was a consistent rider, taking advantage of all the amazing benefits each class had to offer. After a while, a light bulb went off for me that all of my goals were staring right at me on the teacher’s bike.

From apprentice to mentor, my classes blend passion with liveliness to create an unforgettable experience. To connect, kick ass and feel good after every ride.

nutrition & lifestyle coaching

For the past thirteen years I have been dedicated to learning and guiding others in finding the steps, actions and solutions to heal a range of food and body issues. The journey is sometimes extensive and challenging but trusting the process is the beginning of taking control of your body, inside and out.

After many years of struggling with chronic gut and hormone imbalances, my personal journey led me to study at the Academy of Healing Nutrition. After graduation, I accepted that my life and my body were MY responsibility. In doing so, I began carving out a WHOLEistic lifestyle with proper nutrition, exercise and a commitment to self- care. I believe that we all inherently have what it takes to live our best lives. The roadblocks and struggles are there to hurdle but must never light the path. I will use them as a guide to create a blueprint to support you in finding your best self.

about

I am a Pittsburgh native with a passion for music, movement, and bringing people together. I have taught barre, yoga, and indoor cycling for the past 8 years in Las Vegas, New Jersey and New York City. Additionally, I hold a BFA in Musical Theatre from Penn State University. My career in theatre has taken me on both sides of the table, performing in shows such as “Jersey Boys” and “Mamma Mia”, and then traveling the world as a Casting Director identifying talent for cruise ships, theme parks, and corporate events. I currently live in Lancaster, PA with my husband Matthew, dog Sunny, and cat Makoto and am the Studio Manager of Orangetheory Fitness Lancaster. I like to wear animal print, eat buffalo chicken, and really shine in the category of 90’s lyrics.

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!

about

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I’ve lived and worked in New York City since 2012, after I graduated from Ohio State University with my degree in psychology. My initial reason for moving to NYC was to work in the fashion industry, and after a few gigs at magazines and fashion PR agencies, I knew it wasn’t the right fit for me. Luckily, I found my passion in the wellness industry, and after years of practicing yoga, I decided to finally go for it and become a teacher!

My greatest goal in teaching yoga is to empower my students to develop a healthy relationship with their bodies, to build a foundation that creates long term health and wellness, and to challenge them on the mat in ways that grow their confidence in all aspects of their lives! The way you do anything is the way you do everything, and our approach on our mats mirrors our approach in everything else we do. My classes are challenging, sweaty, and will ask you to dig deep to find your edge. With me, you will develop strength, resiliency, self-trust, and maybe even a sense of humor!
