It only took one indoor cycle class back in college, and Kate was hooked! She loves the simple yet effective movements that push the body to the max, and that euphoric feeling you get when class is over. After moving to St. Louis to pursue her TV aspirations (Kate is an Emmy award winning newscast director), the gym she worked out at didn't have a spin program, and Kate kept begging for one. The owners finally said "If you teach the class, we will buy the bikes"...and the rest is history! 15 years later, and Kate still maintains the same level of passion for indoor cycling that she did back then. Shehas taught at numerous fitness studios including Flywheel Gold Coast (where she met Tracy)!
Kate brings a high level of intensity and motivation to her classes. Her motto is "it can be easy or effective, not both".
While indoor cycling is Kate's first fitness love, she has also completed the St. Louis half marathon, the Madison Full Marathon, has hustled up the Hancock, and is looking forward to training for her first triathlon, perhaps 2017?
Kate lives in Naperville with her husband, Matt, and her two young sons Will and Jack. In her spare time, Kate loves cooking, reading, being outdoors, and eating chocolate chip cookies!
