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.
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 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!”
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!
Kate has been indoor cycling for 18 years! She loves that indoor cycling classes allow participants to work hard while encouraging one another in an environment that is safe. She also loves the latitude that allows her to create unique fit trips that are fun for her participants.
In addition to holding her indoor cycling certification, Kate is also a certified wellness and nutrition coach. When she is not leading groups through exciting and challenging fit trips, Kate enjoys running, traveling, and spending time with her husband and three girls.
Her favorite quote is, “run with endurance the race the Lord has set before you,” — and she does.
Katherine has been indoor cycling for the past half decade. She loves that indoor cycling provides an avenue for great workouts that build strength while having fun. “I love that it feels like I’m just at a party with some friends and we happen to be working out.”
You can join one of Katherine’s “parties on the bike” each week as she delivers well-crafted, creative, and fun JIVE RIDEs!
“I love creating playlists. I love music!”
Katherine’s love of music dates back to the days before her competitive ballroom dancing and before her three years of serving as captain of her high school dance club. In addition to cycling and dancing, Katherine has also enjoyed boxing, yoga, and climbing. She feels that her biggest fitness accomplishment is being consistent with moving her body every day — be it just 10 minutes of stretching and walking, or really going for it with an intense cycling class.
When she is not teaching indoor cycling, Katherine can likely be found soaking in the sun or soaking in some new knowledge about plants and gardening. She is also a mental health professional by day and likes to bring a piece of her profession to the cycling concourse reminding participants that the bike is good not only for physical health but for mental health as well, and by encouraging participants to adopt a “you vs you” mindset during a journey toward progress.
Her favorite quote is “my history does not disqualify me from my destiny.” Book your bike now to join Katherine for a mentally and physically transformative ride.
