“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is all you need .”


ONE of my guilty pleasures:

Starbucks London Fog

ONE thing I can’t live without:

Sleep. I’m a huge fan. I need me that 8 hours!

Liam Kronlund has an interesting connection to one of the best selling music artists of all time, Lionel Richie. They share a nickname (that’s a story for another time), a proclivity to singing in public and a love of horses. The original Lionel Richie borrows more from Psy’s Gangnam Style equestrian dance whereas One Cycle’s Liam keeps it authentic and rides a real horse.

As a recent transplant to Calgary, from ranch life in Cochrane, it seems that Liam may in fact be most comfortable in a saddle. “I get excited to get in the bike saddle in front of an energized group and curate the most fun and challenging experience possible”, says Liam. “I hope the atmosphere I provide encourages people to ride to the best of their ability for the fifty minutes we have together”.

This recent university graduate, working towards becoming a paediatric doctor, exudes a very fun, positive and happy energy. So if you do find yourself in Liam’s class you may also find your smile along with it. It’s hard not to when your instructor is constantly smiling - and singing. “I tend to sing a bit in class!” laughs Liam. “I really enjoy spinning to songs that I recognize. I’m a fan of top 40 anthems but I also like putting the odd country tune in as well as rap every so often.” The diverse playlist is sure to energize a variety of people including Liam himself. But when the music is off, and energy is spent from a day of riding horses and stationary bikes, how does Liam stay pumped? Is it his addiction to Jugo Juice and chocolate chip cookies? Perhaps. Is it his inventory of inspiring quotes, aka. ‘soul food’? Perhaps. “I am energized by this quote from Ghandi, Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. This quote covers two of my core values. It serves as a good reminder of how I wish to live my life.” Liam’s balanced approached to life will be sure to keep you balanced and happy you hopped in the saddle along with him.
