Describe your class in 5 words or less: sweaty, steep, fast, fun and positive.
3 words your best friend would use to describe you: spontaneous, silly, and kind.
How would you describe your playlists: I think music can be a huge motivating factor in pushing ourselves a little farther then we thought we could go. I love to mix up genres because everyone is motivated by different music styles. I like to think I utilize the classics while incorporating newer songs or genres as well!
What you do when you're not teaching (your full time gig and/or extracurriculars like hobbies haha): I'm a pediatric nurse by day, part time grad student by night and lover of music, books, beer, friends and the great outdoors.
A few of your favorite things (this can be anything): water bottles, my hiking boots, coffee, Runner's World magazine and a slow cooked Sunday dinner
Claire is a South Jersey native currently living in West Collingswood. She loves supporting the local Collingswood take-out industry in addition to binge watching Netflix shows and going on long runs around Cooper River Park with her best friend slash roommate. In addition to traveling around town in running shoes, she also loves to explore new places. One of Claire's goals is to make time to go on a run whenever she is traveling somewhere new. She loves trying new activities but at the end of the day, indoor cycling and running are unquestionably her favorite ways to sweat! Claire loves the community that upcycle has built and looks forward to her rides as a time to ditch any negativity or stress and focus on the things that matter. She loves leading riders through a challenging work out so that they can all come out both mentally and physically stronger together!
