Instructor New Year’s Resolutions

It’s the time of year when millions of Americans swear oaths to the fitness gods.  It’s no different for you, Cycle Town, and it shows. This has been an amazing, high-energy week.  Keep up the good work!

Here’s what the instructors would like to achieve, get better at, and do more of in 2016.

Amanda – First, read more. Before my daughter, I would read at least 2 books per month. I cherished that quiet time and I swear it made me a calmer person. Second, fewer trips to Lulu and more money into our “dream home” savings account. Lastly, have more patience –breathe, slow down, count to 10!

Anne – Get back in the saddle ASAP! Also, I’m going to have a lot going on with the baby, teaching spin, and going back to work…my resolution is to be better about asking for/accepting help when I need it so I don’t wear myself ragged.

Erin – Dust off The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo, and then actually READ it.  Its been sitting on my shelf way too long.  I vow to be more organized in 2016! Also, be more present in my life and spend more quality time with my best friend (aka husband!!!).  Lastly, do more yoga!

Karen – Spend more time talking with people than texting. Organize my life (HA, my annual New Year’s resolution!)

Kristen – Read more books by not falling asleep after 3 pages. Cook more dinners with my slow cooker (excellent recipes welcomed). More yoga and maybe try that wacky headstand frog thing.  Lastly,  pick up a new TV series for the winter now that Homeland is over.

Natalie – As we enter the new year, I choose a word on which to focus. This year, the word is “Care”. That will translate in 3 ways.  First, be present for my loved ones and cook healthy dinners for my family. Next, take care of myself by drinking more water, less coffee, and fitting something new into my fitness regimen.  Lastly, take care of my surroundings and stay organized and clear-headed. The possibilities for positive, mindful change this new year are endless when I consider this word. That is why I welcome 2016 with a smile and heartfelt optimism!

Toni – Complete the nonfiction book I’ve been writing since 2013. Go to bed before midnight. Drink more. Water.

We Are One Year Old

Today is our one year anniversary! What an exciting year it’s been, launching and growing the studio. Thank you to our riders for supporting us along the way and bringing such enthusiasm, determination, and positive energy. We absolutely love you and you are the lifeblood of Cycle Town. You come to rock your ride and it is such a pleasure to see you work hard, have fun and walk away sweaty and charged with endorphins.

I have a HUGE amount of gratitude and love for our amazing instructor and desk teams as they are the backbone of Cycle Town. Our ride and vibe is all about beat riding goodness. The bike is our canvas and the instructors are the artists who bring exceptional creativity and skill to create classes that are highly effective, great fun and inspiring. We are a very supportive and ambitious team and we live our work hard, play hard mantra every day.

Most of all I am so incredibly thankful for my family. I have the pleasure of writing this Year 1 recap while on vaca with all of them and I’ve had time to think about opportunity and outcome. I go back to the sentiments that it takes a village and pay it forward. Without the support of my family Cycle Town would never have come to life and succeeded. I also have a new appreciation for small local business, community and the opportunities we have in our country. Freedom of expression is a beautiful thing and we are all very lucky.

All of us at Cycle Town are looking forward to being a part of your health and fitness in 2016. We have great things planned that will be sure to delight and I know it’s going to be another exciting year.

Lots of love and a healthy heart!
Kristen

Meet our desk dream team! We are here to make your day, welcome to you to our fab studio and help you take care of anything you need to get set-up and enjoy your experience with us.

Kirsten – It took Kirsten months to walk into the studio, call it fear of the unknown! Good things come to those who wait. She never turned back and embraced our vibe and positive energy whole heartedly. Now she’s a big part of it. A people person in and out, Kirsten brings out the best in everyone around her. She lives in Hingham with her husband and three beautiful daughters.

Brianna – Brianna is the kind of go-getter we love. A regular rider, a pre-med student with a focus on exercise science, and she works at Lulu. She knows our ride, knows why it’s good for our bodies, and has great clothes to boot!

Jenna – Jenna is a full-time student getting her masters in social work at Simmons College. Her super friendly and upbeat attitude are rays of sunshine in the studio. Combine that with her empathetic nature and passion to help people, her feel good vibe will make you smile.

Allie – Allie grew up in Hingham and just came home from studying abroad in Copenhagen. She was a summer regular rider and we’re thrilled to have her back for her break. She’s studying architecture at Middlebury and brings such an infectious positive energy, we can’t get enough of her!

Kristen – Kristen wanted to build an experience, not just a ride; a destination for joyful expression, not just an exercise location. She loves meeting and getting to know all riders, and welcomes your feedback to make your experience even better.

Together with our instructor team, we are Cycle Town. We are thrilled you ride with us and we’re doing everything we can to make your experience as positive as possible. See ya in the saddle!
