Ariella started cycling with her mom over 15 years ago, and as fitness trends came and went (looking at you 8-min abs), cycling remained her passion. “I ride to EVERYTHING,” she says. “My playlist philosophy is to keep it fun, diverse and boy do I love a good sax solo. Expect to hear a lot of dance, electronic and house with some throwbacks, alternative, pop, rock, hip-hop and soul thrown in.”
D Gunnz has been passionate about fitness his entire life — from his high school and college days on the football field, to his work in the fitness industry. D launched his cycling career at New York Health and Racquet Club; since then, he’s brought his signature blend of structure and inspiration to venues such as the Clay Health Club and Equinox Sports Clubs. D’s main goal is to push his riders past their limits, so they leave the studio with their hearts pumping and their feet tapping.

You won’t be able to resist this volleyball MVP’s great smile – or her infectious personality.

Patti found fitness at age 40 when she strapped her youngest kids into a jogging stroller and took up running. When she realized she needed a good cross training workout to round out her routine, she discovered indoor cycling – and never looked back. She became a personal trainer in 2012, which is also when she got her indoor cycling certification and opened a local studio. Today she derives her greatest satisfaction from teaching others the joy of fitness in a personal, boutique environment.
