My Journey: I grew up in Michigan playing sports and always had a love of outdoor sports. I was introduced to the beach and surf in Amelia Island FL going there on annual family trips. As an adult, I moved to the St. Louis area with my husband in 2002 and had two children. I have always had a passion for fitness and exercise becoming a certified spin instructor several years ago. I was searching for workout options for my kids, so when the SURFSET Fitness board was introduced on Shark Tank in the fall of 2014 and invested in by Mark Cuban, I called the founders Mike Hartwick and Sarah Ponn and bought a board to try it out. I was hooked and so were my kids and this began a year long journey to launch a new fitness studio in Southern Illinois – St. Clair County. I was stoked to find space in my hometown of O’Fallon, Illinois and overjoyed to combine my two fitness passions Cycling & Surfing into one concept, CYCLESURF Studio.
I invite you to come meet me and try a CYCLESURF class today! You will be glad you did 😉

Fitness Tip: Whether your goal is losing weight, strengthening your body, or becoming an over all healthier person, it is just as much of (if not more of) a mental challenge than a physical one. There are 1,000 reasons why you can’t start a fitness program. Put the excuses away, drop the word “CAN’T”, and start focusing on reasons for why you “CAN”. Once you take control of your mind and walk through the door, you can begin your journey to a healthier, happier you!
My Journey: I grew up in Belleville, Illinois and danced at Adams Dance Studio for 13 years. I recently moved back to the area and now stay at home with my two beautiful kids. After having my second baby in 2015, I was trying to find something that would spark my interest to get back into shape, that’s when I met Jessica and started SURFSET Fitness classes. It was an instant passion and I always enjoyed spin classes too which made CYCLESURF Studio a perfect fit for me.
I welcome you to come experience our awesome studio today – CYCLESURF is a way of life!

Fitness Tip: A fit body is always under construction so we all have a great chance to work on it each day. Always remember that “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.”
My Journey: I live in O’Fallon, Illinois and began working out 6 years ago. I was hooked as soon as I started. If I finish a workout and am not dripping with sweat I find myself disappointed that I didn’t try hard enough. I have a passion for Obstacle Mud Runs. I successfully completed my first half marathon in April of 2015. I love demonstrating to my kids that you can do anything that you make up your mind to do and then follow that up with action – because actions always speaks louder than words!
I welcome you to come take one of my classes at CYCLESURF Studio today!
