Katie was born and bred in Southern California, and she has been teaching fitness throughout Orange County for over 15 years. She was inspired to teach spin because it levels the playing field among participants in a fitness setting; in the Saddle Room, you can have the triathlete, the first-time exerciser who wants to drop 50lbs, and the mommy-to-be all riding as one! When Katie is not on the bike, she’s GritCycle’s Instructor Coordinator; assisting + managing current instructors and recruiting + developing new talent.
Katie’s classes are a mashup of finding the silly (even when you want to puke!) and knowing that it’s alright to show up sometimes and just sweat out your problems. Her music has the same bandwidth; it runs the gamut from your new favorite song on the radio, to the naughty beats you only listen to in a dark room, to that throwback you forgot you loved so much in college. Katie loves her GritCycle family and is constantly opening her arms to grow it bigger.
