Fit Trip Navigators
Meet your Trip Navigators
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.
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!
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.
Jessica spent years teaching inside the elementary school classroom, and more years homeschooling her two beautiful daughters. Just last year, Jessica discovered the world of indoor cycling — and fell in love!
“I love that it gets my heart pumping but doesn’t hurt my joints.” Having run for exercise in the past and having experienced related hip pain, Jessica also loves and is grateful that she can enjoy the feeling of completing a challenging fit trip on the bike without hurting her body.
“I think I will love showing people of all fitness levels that they can do hard things and feel the same sense of accomplishment.”
When not taking participants on exciting fit trips at CYCLEdelic, you may likely find Jessica taking fit trips from fellow Fit Trip Navigators with her daughters (who also enjoy riding at CYCLEdelic) or “ubering” her daughters to school and extracurricular activities, and hearing all about their fun teenage lives. She also enjoys cooking and hosting people in her home.
Jessica has traveled to five National Parks and looks forward to visiting more. She also optimistically looks forward to future travels to Greece and Italy. But for now, you can travel with Jessica each week as she serves as your Fit Trip Navigator to journeys inside the CYCLEdelic concourse.
