“This is only the start of my journey but I am so happy to find a form of workout that I love”
Kristen is originally from Kingston Jamaica. She moved to New Orleans in 2005 to attend Loyola University and since then has become an official transplant.
Kristen has been active all of her life. She grew up practicing dance and synchronized swimming. In April 2017 she obtained her indoor cycling certification and began instructing at Tour. Her primary goal is for her riders to enjoy the workout and the music. In April 2017 she decided to get her certification and lead her own classes at Tour. Her first goal is for her riders to enjoy the workout and the music. She knows that when the right song comes on it can take you right from tired to100rpms. She believes the right music and movement impacts your body as well as your mind. She finds that a deep connection to emotions can be obtained via music and exercise - preferably on a Tour Cycle bike!
Kristen says, “even if it kicks my ass and everything hurts, it’s pure love for cycling that pushes me through!”
Favorite move on the bike:
I love head bangers (i.e. pushups)
cinnamon toast crunch cereal
Words I live by:
You have to step outside of your comfort zone in order to become stronger and grow. Literally have to say this to myself everyday.
