Q: What's the best memory you have so far being part of the YYC Cycle journey?
Em: It's hard to single out just one favourite memory, but the last class I taught before leaving for a circus gig this past summer, I came in to the entire studio decorated like a circus tent: streamers, balloons, floor to ceiling. It was pretty special. That, or when someone wrote "Emily's quads are inspirational" on a comment card.
Q: For those who don’t know, what’s your favourite type of music to jam out to?
Em: Hip hop, obnoxious rap (clean versions, of course!), guilty pleasures, a little dance hall, and a good mid-class throw back to boost morale.
Q: When you’re not motivating, what can you be found doing?
Em: At Talisman, with Nino, or at Talisman with Nino.
Q: What would you tell someone who is nervous about coming to try a spin class?
Em: I was nervous, too! The hardest part is showing up. Bring a friend! And if you don't, you'll probably leave with a new one :)
Q: What’s something not many people would know about you?
Em: I hold the NCAA Div. I varsity record at the University of Wisconsin in 10 meter platform diving.
Q:What’s one of your biggest fears?
Em: Not living life to the fullest.
Q: What are you most proud of?
Em: Having the courage to pursue my dreams.
Q: Other than spin, what’s your favourite way to sweat?
Em: Strength training, bike rides with my Dad, and anything involving flipping, bending, bouncing, or being upside down.
Q: What are you going to miss most?
Em: Being close to the people I love.
Q: When can the Bikergang ride out with you next?
