Jen Gabriel took her first spin classes in 2001; she knew immediately that indoor cycling would forever be an integral part of her life. After earning her bachelor’s degree at Union College, Jen moved to Breckenridge, Colorado where she became a nationally ranked freestyle snowboarder. She relied heavily on spin classes to keep her in shape for the cold hikes up the mountain with her snowboard in pursuit of the steepest terrain with the most snow. Looking for sunshine, she moved to San Diego where she completed the Rock and Roll Marathon, utilizing indoor cycling classes for cross training to minimize the wear and tear on her body. Naturally, she decided to teach others the activity that had helped her reach her own fitness goals: in June 2008, Jen earned her AFAA certification and began her fitness education career. Jen personalizes each class to ensure a safe, effective and fun experience. Her enthusiastic style and upbeat soundtrack are for those who love to work up a sweat, test personal limits, and maybe even smile!
