Meet MB.  She's been with the studio since we opened over three years ago.  As our lead instructor, you'll find her teaching both our cycle and Underground classes.  On the bike, she's known for her explicit playlists and tough, but perfectly choreographed rides.  But what about in Underground? 

Today she's sharing a bit more about what she loves about Ascend, and what you might expect from taking a class with her in Underground.

What is your favorite part about coaching an Elevate class?

Watching our athletes get stronger!  Since we opened Underground, I have seen so many of our "regulars" get stronger - mentally and physically.  Not only are they picking up heavier weights, but they are mentally tougher.  They come in and WORK for that peak zone!

What's the most challenging part about coaching Elevate?

Trying to find a good balance between really pushing my athletes and also giving them the space to challenge themselves on their own.

How does our community motivate you?

We have so many riders/athletes that work out at Ascend 5-6 times a week. Some come to almost every class I teach- their dedication keeps me motivated. Knowing that they choose to spend an hour at Ascend Cycle, and with me! That makes me want to deliver the absolute best possible workout and class I can in each and every class.

What’s your favorite place in Del Ray to get a coffee?
