Mary Marcia

Read Bio
Mary Marcia believes the bike is the place to re-center, re-energize, re-commit, and begin to realize your goals. “The room is dark, the space is yours, and the bike can truly take you to where you want to be.”

Mary Marcia has helped her class participants “clip in” and achieve their fitness goals in the saddle for more than a dozen years. Prior to teaching indoor cycling, Mary Marcia was a high school teacher and Director of Education who coached multiple cheerleading and dance teams. She earned her AFAA Personal Training Certification in the late 90s and followed that certification with certifications in: Primary Group Exercise, Cardio Kickboxing, ZUMBA, Step, and Cycling.

Her proudest athletic accomplishments include; leading a class of 10 riders to set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Static Cycling Class (24 hrs 7 mins 30 secs), breaking the Guinness World Record for the Most Static Cycling Classes Attended in One Year, and working with teammates to achieve the very first Ironman 70.3 North American Female Relay Team Championship title.

When she is not leading an energetic Fit Trip that has participants digging for their “1% more”, Mary Marcia enjoys creating events for the non-profit PHEEL GOOD Foundation, treasure hunting at local antique shops, and engaging in thought-provoking genuine conversation with loved ones and friends.

She loves the saying, “The difference between try and triumph is a little umph”, and encourages participants to find their “umph” (big or little) with every pedal stroke.

Chris, Trip Navigators • Spin Instructor • CYCLEdelic • Lakeland’s Premiere Indoor Cycling Concourse • Spinning, Spin Class, Fitness, Fun Exercise

Chris

Read Bio
Chris is excited and eager to grow in the world of indoor cycling. He absolutely loves the incomparable feelings he gets during and after completing a cycling class. “I feel like I accomplished something, and the riding “high” is phenomenal!”

With a background in theater, Chris knows how to integrate interactive showmanship into his JIVE RIDEs to make them both fun and effective. His experience in bodybuilding and weight training make the toning portion of his RIDE ON & TONE trips seem like a cinch that is sure to get participants results — and Chris WANTS his participants to experience the results.

Before attaining his current fit physique, and prior to competing in a 2016 bodybuilding show, Chris lived an unhealthy lifestyle and weighed 230 lbs! Thanks to his transformative health and fitness journey, he is a completely different person inside and out. The same guidance and coaching he received that helped him build muscle, build confidence, and start to live a healthy lifestyle, he now wants to offer all of the participants who take his Fit Trips.

When Chris is not in the saddle, he is probably at Publix where he is a Publix Deli Assistant Manager. He loves festivals of all kinds (especially music), and can enjoy a game night any day of the week!

Looking forward, Chris hopes to experience ziplining through the forests of Thailand, and maybe even ride an elephant, because, just like every ride at CYCLEdelic is a trip, Chris says about the elephant, “that would be a trip [too]!!!”

Anne, Trip Navigators • Spin Instructor • CYCLEdelic • Lakeland’s Premiere Indoor Cycling Concourse • Spinning, Spin Class, Fitness, Fun Exercise

Anne

Read Bio
Anne has been indoor cycling for 20 years, and she’s been teaching indoor cycling for almost as long! “I love it so much, I had to teach it!”

Anne loves that indoor cycling can be any type of workout you want it to be — a warm-up, high intensity cardio training, high gear resistance training, a short ride, a long ride, or anything in between.

“Each of us gets on the bike for something, and each day it could be different — getting fitter, relieving stress, losing weight, better health, etc. If I can help you do what you came to do, that maybe you would not do on your own …whether that is driving you to reach a goal or simply have fun…then I’ve performed my role. That’s what I love!”  

In 2009, Anne was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. She was told that she would need to change her lifestyle… including teaching fitness classes and working out, but Anne was steadfast and determined not to let her disease command her lifestyle. “Here I am 10+ years later and probably the most fit I’ve been in my life. I owe much of that to cycling.”

When she is not helping riders reach their goals on the bike, this fit Trip Navigator (who studied Electrical Engineering for her Master’s degree) enjoys nearly anything that keeps her active — from yard work, to playing golf. She hopes to one day hike the Grand Canyon, and she doesn’t necessarily expect it to be easy, because as her self-written favorite quote reminds us… “If it were easy, it would be easy!”

Jen

Read Bio
Jen (aka J-Lo) has been participating in and teaching indoor cycling for 12 years. She loves motivating people to challenge themselves to continue to strive for that “next goal”, and she loves making her classes fun so that participants keep coming back!
 
In addition to fitness instruction, Jen has a strong professional fitness resume’ that includes more than a decade of personal training as well as fitness management. She holds a CYCLEdelic indoor cycling certification and ACE certifications for group exercise and personal training.
 
Jen is a strong, competitive athlete who has taken the overall female winning title in various marathons on 8 occasions. She has run the Boston Marathon 6 times, and has also paced marathons to help others reach their goals.
 
Jen’s next big goal is to complete a 100-mile ultramarathon. When she is not on the bike, you can likely find her training with her husband, or scoping out the best roller coasters at amusement parks with her husband and son.
 
Jen’s favorite quote is, ““I’ve got this life and the will to show, I will always be better than before.” And she looks forward to helping you be “better than before,” too — each and every time you’re in the saddle.

KRISTIN

Read Bio
Kristin has been teaching group fitness for 17 years! She has led groups in ZUMBA, yoga, Step, HIIT, strength training, core and outdoor boot camps. When she is not helping class participants reach their fitness goals, she enjoys running anywhere (and EVERYwhere) around Lakeland. But Kristin is smart enough to listen to her body, and she knows the importance of effective cross training and fitness balance. It was listening to her body that helped Kristin fall in love with indoor cycling.
 
“I still wanted to get the cardio endurance without the high impact [of running], so I picked up indoor cycling.”
 
Kristin loves connecting with her participants, seeing them accomplish their goals, and helping them become more confident & enjoy exercise while they “show up for themselves each week.”
 
One day, Kristin hopes to accomplish the daunting task of running a marathon in each of the 50 states. So far, she has 8 to her credit… and she has managed that while raising triplets who are now middle schoolers!
 
When meeting Kristin, you will likely not be surprised that she was an Exercise Science major, but you may be surprised to learn that she originally went to college to pursue a degree and career in theater! While she did not find herself “at home” on the stage in the theater, she is definitely a natural on the stage inside the CYCLEdelic cycling concourse. “I’m right where I’m meant to be,”  she said, …and she invites you to share the space and feel at home at CYCLEdelic, too.
Will • Spin Instructor • CYCLEdelic • Lakeland’s Premiere Indoor Cycling Concourse • Spinning, Spin Class, Fitness, Fun Exercise

Will

Read Bio

Will has been teaching indoor cycling since the mid 90s! “I’d see all these folks leaving the gym’s little cycling room SOAKED and I said… ‘I want to do THAT!'” — and so he did. He earned his Spinning certification and continued working to accomplish a Star Three Lifetime Certification, while teaching cycling classes at various states across the country.

For Will, it’s all about supporting and working with others to help them obtain their fitness goals, and he knows indoor cycling to be the best low impact means of getting there.

When Will is not delivering motivating instruction on the bike (and not cruising in the CYCLEdelicMobile), you will likely find him running around Lake Hollingsworth and other area running hot spots. Will is an All American Athlete in long distance running, who has achieved ten First Place Overall State Championship RRCA titles. He is also an NFPT Master Personal Fitness Trainer, and USATF Certified Running Coach.

His proudest athletic accomplishments include; a Guinness World Record for participation in the Longest Static Indoor Cycling Class, and a TICK TOCK ULTRA Relay Team win where he and his teammates logged over 98 miles in 12 hours!

When first meeting Will, you may be surprised to learn that he loves FUNK music, but after joining him for a few of his exciting Fit Trips, you’ll likely be groovin’ right beside him!
