Owner

I am a busy mom of 3 that finds time for herself in the gym. My passion is living life to the fullest. 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 15 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. Come join me at the Vicious Cycle, I would love the opportunity to help you reach your fitness goals!!

What can you expect in one of my classes? My rides are usually strength, or fat burn based, or maybe a nice mix of both. I love music with a beat!! In my strength training sessions my goal is to help you build lean muscle mass, gain strength and confidence, while working on balance and endurance. No matter which of my...

Trainer

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 12 years years of experience. I have worked with every type of client over the years. Now that I have a son, Luke, I really enjoy training kids and student athletes.

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.

When I’m not in the gym, I focus on being the best Super Dad I can be. I also find myself watching quite a bit of Daniel Tiger!

Come see me at The Vicious Cycle so you can continue living your best life!!

Spin Instructor

Hi my name is Kiersten! I received my undergraduate degree from Temple University and my Masters in School Psychology from Rowan University. I am currently in my final year of completing my Educational Specialist degree in School Psych from Rowan University. I am one of three girls and grew up playing competitive soccer and lacrosse. While playing lacrosse in college, I discovered Spin as a way to stay in shape in the off season. After college and no longer playing collegiate lacrosse, I started spinning at Vicious in 2018 as an alternative to running which became hard on my knees. After two years at Vicious, spinning had become part of my daily routine and I knew I wanted to become a Spin Instructor to take my love of Spin to the next level. Spinning gives me an opportunity for a mental break from my work day and motivates me to keep my physical health a priority. My classes are a blend of all types of music with a focus on riding to the beat of the song. I am looking forward to getting to motivate others and share my love of spinning with everyone at Vicious! I can’t wait to...

Yoga Instructor

Hi! My name is Meg Artman and live in Medford, NJ with my husband and two children. I am a Practice Manager at a local Veterinary Hospital and have always had a passion for animals as well as yoga. I fell in love with yoga in the early 2000’s practicing Bikram. From there, I explored many styles and ultimately earned 200-hr RYT certification with Yoga Alliance at Balanced Planet Yoga. I describe my style as Vinyasa flow. Flowing through the poses, moving with the breath, creating a mind body connection. I encourage everyone to move at their own pace. I offer many variations for poses which enables everyone to get the most out of every pose by making it their own. I believe that anyone and everyone can practice yoga. I strive to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable during every classes I teach.

Off the mat, you’ll most likely find me enjoying life with my family. It may be on the soccer fields or on the couch watching a movie together.

Spin Instructor

Hey Everybody! I’m Margie and I am extremely excited to be joining the Vicious Cycle team!

A little about myself . . .

I am a mom of 3 humans and 2 large dogs, who I enjoy spending all of my free time with.

I have been participating in indoor cycling classes for about 8 years after a running injury that left 3 screws in my right hip. I was petrified of my first class and look at me now!

I’ve been an indoor cycle instructor since 2018. I absolutely love it – it’s my fun job! I love the overall vibe of indoor cycling, the beat of the music, the energy of the riders and the motivation that we provide each other! I always tell my riders, “life is busy, this is your time – don’t waste a second of it.”

I listen to all types of music and try to incorporate a little of everything in my rides. If there is anything you want to hear in class, just let me know and I will make it work! WARNING: Sometimes I might sing in class, and will encourage you to join along!

My weaknesses include, Cheez Its, red wine and sprinting in 3rd position on the bike.

Spin Instructor

Hi everyone!! My name is Caylie Dwyer! I’m currently 18 years old and going to the University of Pittsburgh to study Neuroscience in the fall. I hope to eventually go to medical school and become a pediatric surgeon. All of my life I have danced competitively and absolutely love staying active. I discovered Vicious and began spinning last summer with my mom and fell in love with it immediately! After going to Vicious every day for several months, I knew that becoming an instructor and motivating others to be the best versions of themselves, both mentally and physically, was something that I wanted to strive to do. I’m so thankful to be a part of this team, and I can’t wait to see you in class!!

Hey! My name is Chance! Born and raised in Tabernacle, but I recently bought my first house in Medford. After I graduated in 2014 from Seneca, I went to Rowan and graduated in 2019 with a Degree of Science! When I was 15 I started working at Evergreen Dairy Bar, and really enjoy the social aspect of my job. Being able to talk to people and make connections, is what I enjoy most!

I’ve been a member at Vicious Cycle for over two years now and really took an interest and passion in exercising! After learning and being encouraged by all the trainers at Vicious, I decided I too want to make a positive impact on others fitness journey.

Hi ! My name is Kim Feudtner. I have been working in the fitness industry since I was 19 years old...let’s leave it at that ;-) My husband and I live in Medford with our 4 children, some away at college and some still at Shawnee. Go Renegades! My fitness mantra is “Try Hard'' . I’ve been told it’s uncool to be a “try hard”. But personally, I don't ever want to know what it feels like to not be one. So let’s do this fitness thing together. Please join me in the spin room! Why not?

Yoga Instructor

My name is Ruth Kueny and I live in Atco, NJ with my 3 children. I retired after 26 years of working in the field of Human Resources. Burned out by the long hours and long travel, I began searching for something more meaningful but I did not know what, until yoga. I found my yoga practice as a means to cope with stress and health concerns. It was the “me” time I never had. Yoga has become a lifeline for me. I have found strength, confidence, peace and gratitude. I received my 200-hr YTT certification at The Yoga Shift. For me, yoga is about the balance between strength and flexibility, exertion, and releasing. So, my classes combine both strength and mobility work in a dynamic, Power Flow style that students of all levels can easily modify. Combine this sweaty high intensity fast-paced flow with soothing restorative poses to help present the balance that closely mirrors our lives. I ground my students in an ongoing awareness of breath while guiding them through poses with proper alignment cuing, modelling, and hands-on adjustments. Expect to move, sweat, and breathe! I am excited...

Spin Instructor

I love for spinning began about 20 years ago when a friend gave me a gift of 3 spin classes. By ride #2 I was hooked! After 3 years of spending lots of time on a bike, I took the plunge and became an instructor. The Mind/Body connection has taught me 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 they will enjoy riding as much as I do. There's a sense of accomplishment when a tough ride is completed and personal goals are met. In my rides we may run--on a flat or up a hill. Challenge ourselves with a steep hill. Push a steady, quick pace to get close to an anaerobic state. I use a variety of music---from classic rock to current hits. One thing is certain, when we are done, you WILL feel accomplished.

I've lived in NJ for over 30 years, but you can still detect the Michigan accent.

One of my favorite sayings is---Anything worth doing, is worth doing well!!

Marketing Coordinator

Hey, hi, hello! My name is Bridget Lynch. I am a South Jersey native and Penn State alum, where I studied Marketing and Kinesiology. I am the face behind The Vicious Cycle's social media accounts, event marketing and newsletters (so if you see me snapping pics during class, you know I'm just getting some good content!).

In addition to working in the business field, I have also been a Personal and Group Trainer for about 3 years, which I absolutely love! With that, I am beyond excited to be a part of Vicious where my two passions are able to collide.

My style of training focuses on strength training techniques as well as functional movement patterns. I also teach kickboxing and am pursuing my Spinning certification as we speak! I take great pride in creating programs that allow clients to realize their true potential and accomplish things they never thought were possible. I truly believe exercise works wonders on the mind and body and am proud to be a part of The Vicious Cycle team where working out is fun, inviting and effective!

When I'm not working out, you...

Spin Instructor

Hi, my name is Chelsea Michelfelder. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology from Rowan University and a Master's Degree in Information and Library Science from Clarion University allowing me to become a Youth Services Librarian for the Burlington County Library System. My go-to workout is running but I took my first spin class in 2015 to switch things up. I fell in love with spin and decided to get certified in 2018. My workout is my therapy as well as the balance for my love of chocolate. I'll be returning Vicious as a new mom and can't wait to get back into it!

My spin goals are to work hard but have fun along the way! Expect a variety of climbs, sprints and jumps in my class while sweating to great music! I like to vary my music genres and decades from Aerosmith, Queen, Fall Out Boy, and Imagine Dragons to Pink, DNCE and Pitbull, but I am always open to requests! I want to challenge each person to achieve their fitness goals and gain their own confidence through working out. I hope to see you soon!

Greeter

Hi everyone! My name is Liz and I am thrilled to be a part of the Vicious family. I have been in education for the past twelve years and when I am not in the classroom you will find me on the field hockey and lacrosse fields coaching my district’s junior high girls. Even though school keeps me busy, I do find time for the things I love. Reading, traveling, trying new things, last minute adventures, being outside and working out at Vicious Cycle are just a few of my favorite things in life. I also really love being creative, which has lead me to being able to design and work on the chalkboards at Vicious. My hope is that they give you that little pick me up you might need for the day, add a smile to your face or help you push through those last grueling seconds of a set. I look forward to seeing you in your next strength or spin class!

Spin Instructor + Yoga Instructor

Hi! My name is Meredith, a New Jersey transplant and now Vicious Cycle spin instructor. I have been teaching spin for a year and a half, and am now a new Vinyasa yoga teacher after the recent completion of my 200 YTT in 2022. I am originally from outside of the Washington, D.C. area and have been a Marlton, NJ resident since 2020! I work full-time as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and enjoy teaching spin and yoga as a way to decompress and connect with others.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from The University of Tennessee and a Master's Degree in Social Work from The University of Louisville, which means you can always catch me watching college football on Saturdays in the Fall! I took my first yoga class while in college at UT as a way to manage chronic pain from an autoimmune disorder and immediately fell in love with the yoga community I found and group fitness classes. When my yoga studio closed in 2017, I found myself looking for something new to keep me active which brought me to my very first spin studio. I never considered myself an athlete or...

Personal Trainer + Spin Instructor

I am so excited to join the Vicious Cycle team! My family and I moved to Medford in 2018 and we love it here. I grew up in Pennsylvania and went to West Chester University where I majored in business. Several years into working in that field, I realized my passion was in the fitness industry where I could work hands on with people and make a tangible difference in their lives. I became a certified personal trainer in 2010 and have since worked with all types of people from beginners, professional athletes, kids and teens, seniors and everyone in between. Since no person is the same, I do my best to tailor every workout to suit the individual. My goal is to get you moving better, overcome inevitable road blocks and see exercise as something that you GET TO do, not HAVE TO do. My strength training classes focus on building strength while increasing mobility and endurance, with an attention to proper form. I also strive to build a fun and caring community to motivate and lift each other up. I look forward to sweating with you soon!
