JILL

"Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."

 

ONE thing that motivates me:

My son. He inspires me to be the best version of myself every single day!

ONE thing you may not know about me:

I’m suppose to be a school teacher but the challenge of running businesses was more exciting to me!

"As much as I love the ride outside, the 50 minute rush and sweat you get while riding at OC is what constantly brings me back to that spin room."

Cycling both in the spin room and out of the spin room is a pretty big part of Jill's life, as she and her husband own 3 Bike Shops here in Calgary.

Her motivation to teach is seeing people return to your classes and watching them get stronger and improve their skills & movements on the bike. "It is the best feeling in the world to see your class move together while taking on new challenges. It is the best way to squeeze in a full body workout in your day, which is something I struggle to go without!" She believes that no matter how strong you get on the bike you are always in control of making your class harder to challenge and push you.

Jill brings her endurance onto the bike with her competitive background in running (she competed in Varsity in University) and when she's not on the spin bike, you can find her running outdoors with her son in the chariot.

When you go to Jill's class, you can always expect a long dirty climb with some breathtaking TOT’s! "Commitment & hard work both on and off the bike is my goal and being able to inspire others to do the same is something so special."
