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...

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.

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!!

Administrative Assistant+ Greeter+ Spin Instructor

Hi! My name is Meghan Murphy and I currently attend Stockton University. Working at the Vicious Cycle and riding in various spin classes with the different instructors has allowed me to instantly grow a passion and a love for Spinning and has also allowed me to develop a positive mindset when it comes to fitness. The inspiration and motivation that I feel after every class is one of the many reasons why I decided to become a Certified Spinning Instructor. I want to make sure everyone feels inspired and motivated during each of my rides and leaves my class wanting to come back for more. I am always willing and eager to answer any questions you may have about my ride so please let me know if you do.

As the Administrative Assistant at The Vicious Cycle, my goal is to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable when they come in. If you have any questions about anything, I will be happy to answer them. I look forward to seeing you soon!

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.

TRX Instructor

My name is Kellie. I've been a full time high school science teacher for 20 years. I'm Medford Lakes local. A wife. A mom. A dog mom to 3 crazy pups. A small business owner, creating handmade goods and restoring vintage finds through my local business Made In The Pines.

My formal training was originally with Polestar Pilates for Reformer I, II, and III. I'm also trained through Balanced Body for CoreAlign and through TRX for group fitness classes. I taught Pilates Reformer, CoreAlign, and TRX group fitness classes and private lessons to clients all across Burlington County from ages 16 to 85, at every level of fitness (from high school athletes looking to up their game, people just starting their fitness journey, new mamas looking to regain their pelvic floor, spouses interested in couples workouts, and everything in between). For 7 years I taught classes and private lessons, establishing myself at several local studios until I took a break (a long break) after having my son. But, I AM BACK!

I came across Pilates Reformer by chance through an online search back in...

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

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...

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!!

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!

Registered Dietician + Personal Trainer

My name is Morgan and I am a Registered Dietitian. I am super excited to bring a nutrition-focused approach to the Vicious family! I follow a food-first approach and help clients learn to have healthy relationships with food and dieting. Becoming a vegetarian at age 18 taught me the importance of nutrition and brought me to my career as a Dietitian. I love educating clients about new recipes, cooking techniques, and a family-friendly approach to improving habits for everyone. I have worked with parents to improve nutrition intake among the whole family by bringing kids into meal prep and planning. I have also helped clients with awesome weight loss success by taking a one change at a time approach. I feel this is best because you can see success, keep yourself motivated and still live an unrestricted, balanced life.

Another one of my passions is being outdoors and being active. I have completed three Tough Mudders, a Spartan race, and ran my first marathon in February. Knowing the importance of nutrition was a huge part of my success with training, I used my nutrition...

Yoga Instructor

Hey Everyone! I hope to get to meet you on your mats in one of my classes, but a little bit about myself!

I have been in love with yoga and practicing for about 9 years and have been teaching for 5 years. I started my practice in Bikram and have developed a passion for power yoga, specifically Baptiste Yoga. I was certified through Grow Yoga in Baptiste Yoga, which is a type of power yoga. What drew me to this style is that I love the different poses in the sequence that gives me not only strength in my body physically, but in my breath work and mental health as well. There are so many things that this practice has done for me and helped me grow!

During my classes, I love music as well so you can rock out to a power flow with me on your mat in the studio! I also have a fluffy golden retriever pup who loves to lay right next to my mat when I am practice at home! When I am not on my mat, I am working on finishing up my Doctorate in Occupational Therapy (May 2021)! Find out more about me when you come into Vicious Cycle and take a class with me!

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!!

Yoga Instructor

Hi I’m Laura and I’m a yoga instructor. Yoga has been a part of my life from a very young age. I fell in love with it a long time ago and have continued my practice since then. Now, I want to use my passion to help bring yoga to others.

I work hard to make my classes a safe place, physically and mentally. I have taken additional training in injury prevention and trauma-informed yoga so I can keep my students safe and happy. I also create a space where everyone is welcome and encouraged to come step out onto their mat.

When I’m not teaching or on my mat, you can find me at the beach or otherwise outside. I love nature and find every excuse to be in it. It’s not uncommon to find me at the gym either, to create workouts to compliment my yoga practice.

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!

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...

Spin Instructor

Hey y'all, my name is Alexa!

A little about my life: I am originally from a town outside of Memphis, TN, hence the use of "y'all" in all my greetings. I decided to move 17 hours away for college and attend Temple University, where I received my BA. From there, I decided to continue my education at the University of Pennsylvania. Clearly, I fell in love with the East Coast and decided to stay a little longer than just college! I now work in sales for a metal recycling company in Philadelphia.

My love for fitness started when I realized I had an extremely unhealthy lifestyle as a young teen. By myself I created my own workout schedule and meals and lost close to 100lbs! Definitely one of my most prized accomplishments in life. Since then, I have wanted to continue a healthy lifestyle. Cycling became an outlet to me during the pandemic. I love cycling so much that I decided to get my certification after a little push from some fellow friends in other cycling communities!

I love to get lost in the music and really reflect on my life/goals. I love throwback songs...

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!

Trainer + Pilates Instructor

Hi my name is Chris, I am a graduate of West Virginia University with a degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology. With over 15 years of experience in sports performance, rehab and wellness, I am a certified Performance Coach as well as a Pilates instructor. Going to WV for football, injuries eventually got the best of me but put me on the right track for a successful career in fitness. I have worked with all age groups and populations and I take pride in upgrading lives.

Because of my education and experience my style of training is very adaptable. Strength and flexibility are my go tos, but In my own workouts I add a variety of training to keep me motivated and healthy. Football actually led me into becoming a Pilates instructor. I like my clients to feel comfortable coming to me with their goals and confident that I can help them achieve them.

When I'm not in the gym, I like to stay very active with a variety of sports, including chasing around my 2 1/2 year old Layla. But I also love my recovery days with my 11yr old Chocolate Lab Abby. I look forward to meeting...
