“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a ride!”
ONE of my guilty pleasures:
ONE of my nicknames:
Joanna Majcherkiewicz (or simply ‘Magik’ for those not accustomed to pronouncing so many vowels together) has her hands in many sweaty endeavors.
This welcoming, ambitious and creative woman is a marketing professional in the action sports industry (for brands like Red Bull Canada and Quiksilver Canada) and a TV host and announcer (for networks like Global and OLN and events like the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and the Burton US Open of Snowboarding). She also curates a fitness fashion and music blog called TheSweatStyle.com.
This retired competitive snowboarder and amateur downhill mountain biker used to “live the dream in Whistler” but now gets the same thrill from a One Cycle Spin class. For 10 years Joanna co-owned and co-operated MGT Snowboard Camp for Girls that brought female Olympians, X Games athletes and video superstars to inspire female snowboarders across Canada and the USA. “I love sport and being active in general because it has such an incredible impact on a person’s confidence and well being. MGT provided a platform for this development – and for shenanigans. I mean, MGT stood for More Good Times!” says Joanna. “I bring that same energy to One Cycle now.”
At Joanna’s classes you can expect edgy club music and rare remixes with the occasional familiar sing-along song thrown in. When not at One Cycle you can find Joanna on the microphone at an event, snowboarding, surfing, downhill mountain biking, touring music festivals across North America or eating jellybeans.
