Currently, I'm out in Toronto for my 10 year reunion from Chiropractic school and am both unbelievably grateful for the chance to reconnect with amazing friends, but also stunned that so many years have flown by this quickly!  It's funny how these moments make you reflect on where you're at, and truly, how you're spending those years that pass so fast.

Hey spin community! I am a little on the shy side at first then well...I warm up to people fast and I am so grateful to have found a place and fitness community to be a part of.  I am married to my hubby who supports me always no matter what. I always had a love of cycling and biked when I could. I tried spin at the local recreation centers and a few gyms but never felt the drive to come back...something was missing.

My name is David Mouland and I live in Sherwood Park, AB. I've lived in a few cities in Alberta over the years before finally settling in the Edmonton area for the past 9 years. I spent the first 21 years of my life in rural Springdale, Newfoundland with stints in St. John's a couple of times as most Newfoundlanders do at some point in their lives. In October 2000, I moved to Calgary after finding a technology job in my field of work and decided to stay permanently in Alberta.

I most definitely did NOT fall in love with my first spin class.  Or second. Or third, or fourth…eleventh… yaaa, we’re going to call it at least a good solid four weeks’ worth of sending my heart into prolonged runs of SVT, constantly thinking “I’m-dying-I-hate-this-why-am-I-here-everything-hurts-I’m-still-dying”, before I started getting maybe, ever-so-slightly, a little bit hooked on spin.  I mean, who doesn’t love that oh-so-metallic taste in your month because your lungs are protesting by flat out exsanguinating on you, right? Right, me too.

Hey Spinunity! I’m Teryn, or Ter sometimes depending on who you ask. I’m originally from southern Ontario but moved out here with my husband, Craig, 7 years ago now. We live in Edmonton and share our home with our 2 awesome German Shepherds, Addi and Beacon, a 3-legged cat named Crash and a 4-legged cat named Mac. During the day I’m a Registered Veterinary Technician which keeps me moving.

I should start by saying, I hate cardio. I tried numerous times to become a runner after hearing time and time again how therapeutic it is for some people. It just was not sticking. I even tried spin at my gym and found it challenging to stay focused and motivated. Therefore, I started gravitating towards barre and yoga. Barre, more specifically, really challenged me mentally and physically. The moment I started shaking through a move, I was hooked. So much so, a year after joining I began training to become an instructor at Sculpt Barre.
