Class Descriptions & Instructor Biographies 

 

Cycling with Lily: Anyone of all fitness levels is welcome in this class! In each class we will tackle steady climbs, fast sprints, and recovery flats while seated or standing on the bike. We will have fun, and new playlists each week to keep class fresh. This workout is high-energy and will challenge your endurance and strength. The spinning portion of this class will be 45 minutes and after we will head to the ground for a 10-minute ab blast! Here we will focus on stabilizing and strengthening the core. We will finish with a 5-minute stretch which will focus on relaxing the major muscles used in cycling. This class is fabulous for cross-training or for cyclists. If you have any questions, feel free to message Lily on her spin Instagram @lily_spin.  

Cycling taught by: Lily G.  

Lily is a first year at SCU! She is from Northern California and has been a recreational cyclist for 10 years, including road and mountain biking. During her junior year of high school, she joined a mountain biking team, but realized that she loved the cycling community more than the competitive atmosphere. In her senior year, she had the honor of being selected as an ambassador for the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Girls Riding Together (GRiT) program. She spent a year devoting her time to introducing female-identifying students to mountain biking. This past summer, she went on a road cycling adventure to the French Alps to climb 5 of the most famous Tour de France mountain stages. She wants to make this class a fun and welcoming place for everyone of all levels. Feel free to follow her instagram account (@lily_spin) for information and updates about class.

 

Cycling with Maggie: Anyone of all fitness levels are welcome in this class! In each class we will tackle steady climbs, fast sprints, and recovery flats while seated or standing on the bike, set with fun, new playlists each week. This workout is high-energy and will challenge your endurance. This class is 45 minutes and includes a warm-up and cool-down stretch.  

Cycling taught by: Maggie M. 

Maggie is a sophomore at SCU from Atlanta, Georgia. She has always had a passion for fitness and helping others achieve their fitness goals. Both her parents are fitness instructors, which led her to want to follow in their footsteps. She began spinning 3 years ago and decided to get her spinning certification through Schwinn. She is so excited to start spinning at SCU!

 

Power Vinyasa Yoga: Power Vinyasa Yoga connects breath to movement while creating a rewarding and hard workout. We move from pose to pose – utilizing the principles of alignment, personal awareness and breath. Classes are physically challenging and creatively designed to transform your body, inspire your practice and help practice mindfulness. Some inversions and arm balances will be offered but use your intuition and do what’s best for your practice. This class is energetically challenging, however, all yogis are welcome!! 

Yoga taught by: Julia L. 

Julia is a sophomore at SCU from Chicago, Illinois. She has been practicing yoga since she was 10 years old but realized how much of an impact it made when she spent her first year at Miami of Ohio and didn’t have the chance to practice. During the process of transferring, she received her 200 hour yoga certification and taught at a studio at home during the fall. She has always loved high intensity sports, and is currently training for a marathon, and believes yoga plays a huge part in helping her mental and physical health while still providing a challenging workout. She hopes she can provide a space where everyone can find a community and feel mentally/physically strong when they leave. 

 

Spin with Alexa: Anyone is welcome in this no-impact cardio class. This class is high energy and focuses on cardiovascular strength and endurance. We will tackle speed and resistance intervals, hills, sprints, and recovery flats in seated and standing positions. This class is 45 minutes and includes a warmup, short arms section, and cooldown, set to fun playlists that change every session. First time riders are encouraged to come 10-15 minutes early.

HIIT Class: This 45 minute high intensity interval training (HIIT) class alternates between strength and cardio drills. The workout has a 3:1 work-to-rest ratio, so each set consists of 30-second exercises followed by 10-second rests, and each 3 minute set is followed by 1 minute of either cardio or rest. This class will strengthen your arms, core, and legs as well as improve your cardiovascular strength, mobility, and flexibility. It is challenging but can be modified to work for anyone.

Circuit Class: This class is 1 hour and combines cardio and strength for a total body workout. There are 10 stations in the circuit, 2 cardio and 8 strength training exercises. Every exercise is 2 minutes and can be modified to work for all skill and fitness levels. The circuit is done twice, with a warm up before, 1 minute water break between, and cooldown stretch after. This workout will improve your cardiovascular endurance, strength, mobility, flexibility, and coordination. 

Spin, HIIT, and Circuit taught by: Alexa B.

Alexa is a senior at SCU from New Jersey. She was a competitive dancer and cheerleader for over 10 years until her freshman year of high school when she fell in love with running. Through high school and college, she also started cycling, lifting weights, and attending HIIT and circuit classes to crosstrain. She has a passion for fitness, believing that on top of the numerous physical health benefits, exercise is a healthy way to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. She hopes to create an inclusive community where everyone feels supported to pursue their fitness goals in a fun, challenging environment.
