When did you fall in love with spin? 

I fell in love with Spin a couple of years ago when I was looking for some activities to cross train as I was training for a half marathon.  I attended a few classes and quickly became addicted! I enjoy participating in something that is a group experience as I typically run alone.  In addition, I loved how the music was motivating and almost a distraction and before no time at all I had put in 60 minutes of intense cardio!

What are your nicknames? 

Lina Ballerina! In my younger years I was a dancer, however, now you will see me dancing and spinning around the house with tunes always playing in the background! 


I enjoy all kinds of music so it will always be a mix of songs and lyrics that motivate me or have a message that I can relate to! I put myself out there so I am sure there will  be a laugh or two as I always seem to find a way to embarrass myself.  I am full of enthusiasm and I push myself hard to provide a great workout.  I get so much energy from the riders that it will be a fun and positive class!  

Where can we find you on a Sunday morning? 

Sunday mornings are always a Vanilla Latte and a walk in the river Valley!

Guiltiest Pleasure?

I have been known to use wine as a coping mechanism after a bad day! But if I was to be totally honest,  and put myself "out there", I love Boy Bands!! Yes, that is true, I said it!! I went to a "One Direction" concert and I have a t-shirt that says "Justin Bieber is my boyfriend"!!

If you could give someone one piece of advice, what would it be?

"If you want to change you have to be willing to be uncomfortable!"

What inspires you? 

I am inspired by seeing people set goals and achieve them. I am always trying new things and working on my own personal development! I find inspiration in everyone around me for many reasons, each one as inspiring as the next!!
