A life-certified thrill seeker, Melissa K. believes the bigger the challenge the better! Be careful when you take her class, because her contagious energy may infect you until you suddenly find yourself pouring your heart out on the bike to match her—pedal stroke for pedal stroke. Her music runs the spectrum—dance, pop, electronic, hip/hop, alternative/roc—-with bass-heavy beats you can glue to your feet! On any given day, you may hear David Guetta, Drake, Zedd, Rihanna, or Disclosure.
At first, the instructor podium seemed intimidating to Melissa, who has carried a fear of public speaking since childhood, but she has always understood that the more willing she is to step outside her comfort zone, the greater the return. Now she finds that the exhilarating adrenaline rush she feels every time she climbs on the teacher bike helps her take class to the next level.
When she's not making you sweat, she likes playing soccer, cooking, boating, traveling, and, of course, hanging out with her family. But if you ask her what she actually spends her time doing, she'll probably say, "Sleeping or cleaning—it's a mom's life."
Whether as a student or teacher, Melissa believes we learn and grow together as a community. She loves seeing new faces, so pay her a visit in her next class and introduce yourself. Maybe that adrenaline rush is contagious! Melissa believes, "It never gets easier, you just get stronger. Stay dedicated!"
