I am a busy mom of 3 that finds time for herself in the gym. My passion is living life to the fullest. I want to teach my children how to work hard for their dreams, but also to take time to enjoy the journey. I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota where I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Kinesiology. While in college I joined the Minnesota Air National Guard and proudly served my country for six years. With a diverse background and over 13 years of personal training and spin instructor experience, I have trained in big gyms, private studios and everything in between. When the Air Force brought my husband and I to New Jersey in 2006, I saw an opportunity to continue helping others improve their lives through health and fitness. Please come join me !!! I would love the opportunity to help you reach your fitness goals!!more

If you are ready to build real strength & look good doing it, "this guy" is ready to help you achieve it. I am a New Jersey native who went to school for business, but quickly shifted gears to pursue a career in the Fitness Industry once I realized I was incapable of sitting still at a desk for more than 15 minutes at a time. I am an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer with over 10 years of practical training experience. I have worked with every type of client over the years, to include 13 year old students who are looking for fun. I also keep things fresh and new when exercising the senior client who is faced with many limitations due to multiple reconstructive joint surgeries. I take pride in the ability to modify workout programs to accommodate the abilities and goals of each and every client.
Personally, I love lifting heavy weights and going hard, but I also understand the importance of balancing my own programming with cardio activity and stretching. There is no point in having super human strength if you can't use it in everyday life!

Growing up I was never particularly interested in any kind of group or structured exercise program. I didn’t play a team sport and my only exercise came from gym class in school and an occasional bike ride outside. One day, after I graduated from college and was living in Atlanta, I walked past a small store front aerobic studio and though that I should check out what was going on. I tried a few classes, not because I wanted to become “fit”, but the people inside were having fun. I was instantly hooked. About a year later I moved to New York State, got certified and so my career began - that was 25 years ago! Since then I’ve taught most standard group classes: high/low aerobics, step, body sculpting class and now focusing on lifting and cycling. My husband and I moved to Tabernacle in ’92 and I can’t imagine a better place to live and raise a family. We enjoy local produce, schools, and of course proximity to the beach as well as the big cities (Philly & NY). We are raising two teenage daughters with my oldest off to college in the fall. As you can imagine I have been helping...more
I am married and have a son in college. I have been living in Medford Lakes for 18 years. Growing up, I was overweight and that continued well into my 20’s. When I had my son I was 250 pounds and just downright miserable. I mean I was thrilled to be a new mother, but not at all with myself. I wasn’t a member of a gym, so I started running. I ran everyday - rain, sleet, snow, heat, and sometimes I caught a break with some good weather. Soon I joined a gym and all good things began happening. I have many races under my belt; as well as 3 marathons (including Boston)!! Spin surfaced at my gym around this time. I thought it would be a great partnership along with the running. I loved it so much I became a certified instructor. I have been teaching for 8 years and absolutely love it!! Music is an amazing motivator with respect to both running and spinning. I make sure that there is something for everyone. In my classes you can expect to hear anything from Bruce Springsteen and The Who, to Pitbull and Pink. My classes are a music pumping, heart pounding, cardio blasting, sweat...more
As a former athlete and college football player I have always enjoyed working out. Mostly lifting weights with a little cardio here and there. As I've gotten older I've been limited to watching football and of course enjoying all the game day favorites such as nachos and wings. So I've made an effort to balance that with more cardio. Spinning is a great way to do just that! (Also read as Allison makes me do it.)
I invite you all to come out for a Friday night spin. It's only 45 minutes and it makes happy hour even happier!!more
I began my love of "All Things Spin" 15 years ago when a friend bought me a gift certificate for 3 spin classes. By ride #2, I was hooked!!! After 3 years of spending lots of time on an indoor bike, I took the plunge and became an instructor. The Mind/Body connection has taught me that I can achieve anything I want. Perseverance is the key!!! Over the years, my teaching style has evolved, but one thing remains constant. My goal is to inspire every rider so that they too will enjoy riding as much as I do. There is a great feeling of accomplishment after a tough ride is completed, not to mention, sweating it out with a group and achieving personal goals. I have lived in NJ for over 25 years, but riders will still pick up my Midwest "twang" and say, "you are not from around here". That is my Michigan accent. Finally, my mantra is anything worth doing, is worth doing WELL. LET'S RIDE!!!more

Hi, my name is Devon. I am a graduate of Rowan University with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science. I also have a Master's Degree in Sport and Recreation Studies from Ohio University. I currently oversee Fitness and Wellness Programming at The University of Pennsylvania in their Department of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics.
I am one of five daughters, so my competitive nature is obvious, necessary, and instinctive. I have an athletic background but that is not what lead me to my fitness lifestyle or career choice. Personal experience, sweat, blood, and the occasional tear, have taught me that fitness is not only about fitting into your favorite dress......it is about better productivity in life, awesome sleep, preventative care, a positive attitude, a happier perception on life, and amazing friends !!
I became interested in Spinning about 6 years ago and became Mad Dogg Certified shortly thereafter. Spinning is the only exercise that I feel I have some sort of rhythm, which is why I do not do Zumba. Spinning is pure Cardio without the dreadful treadmill....more
Hi my name is Laura Kerns ! I started attending Spin Classes in the Summer of 2015 after I finished treatment for Breast Cancer. I had never seen a spin class and I knew nothing about it. I had also quit smoking and needed to lose extra weight. I was never an athlete or a "workout" person. I discovered that I loved spin classes ! Even after I lost weight, I found the classes were a great way to maintain my new healthy self and a great stress reliever ! I recently received my Spin Instructor Certification and I am excited to motivate others to try spin - it is addictive ! I am definitely living proof that you don't need to be a life long athlete to get a great, fun workout. Hope to see you at a Vicious Spin class soon !more
