Mimi's love for indoor cycling began in 1997 at the tender age of 17. Challenged by the intensity of the workout, she was determined to conquer the bike and became a dedicated follower. After managing several boutique fitness studios in the Los Angeles area, she decided to get her indoor cycling certification in 2005 and two years later she received her Pilates certification. Mimi's knack for business management, coupled with her talents as a personal trainer generated a desire to create a new type of indoor cycling studio. One with a strong brand identity, straight forward classes taught by seasoned instructors; a place where the energy is synchronized, inspiring us all to move past our own limitations. A place where our goals are acknowledged and pursued with no judgement. And finally a place to sweat. Hence, the birth of the Sweat Shoppe.
