Lisa has been rocking the lead bike for several years now and it’s an exercise format she is genuinely passionate about! It all started with one spin class at a big box gym in America… “I was blown away by the challenge of this class and I needed to conquer it!” Soon thereafter, the future was written and she got certified and began teaching several classes per week. When she moved to the UK in 2010, it became immediately apparent that Lisa’s brand of indoor cycling was not readily available here… and that’s when the development for Ride! began. It’s been a fantastic journey so far and Lisa cannot wait to see what the future holds!
Why do you love teaching at Ride!?
I think that there’s a special energy in the classes at Ride! Each and every one of our clients is a friend to the studio and they are there to WORK IT OUT… They are strong, empowered, amazing men and women who make coming to work every day worthwhile. #Ridecommunity
What type of music can people expect to hear in your class?
Given that I love to get my dance on, you will hear loads of remixed pop, RnB, a bit of hip hop and I’ll even take it back to the 80’s with some of the tunes that we can all know the words to!

What sort of music can the riders expect in your class?
My classes are completely influenced by the music I play as I use the music to map each Ride! I use an extremely eclectic mix of dance, 80’s and 90’s classics, hip hop, pop and rock.

Why do I love teaching at Ride?
Definitely Ride’s ‘personal feel’. The beauty of working in a boutique studio is that you get to know all of your clients individually and can therefore offer more of a group personal training experience. Also the team spirit and camaraderie at Ride! This is testament to Lisa ensuring that every Instructor at Ride is carefully selected and share core values. High standards = high expectations! We are expected to be top of our game and values include individuality, creativity, expertise and outstanding client service/interaction. I feel privileged to be a member of the Ride family.
What style of music can clients expect in your class?
Ha this question made me laugh. House music all day long! Being an old Cheesy Quaver I listen to non other. Upbeat, Up-tempo, Uplifting tunes that will carry you through a challenging class! My mixes are sets delivered by some of the Industry’s finest DJs across Ibiza, Miami & London & are now pumping out of a studio in Cobham.

I have many so to pick just one is a toughie. OK my objective is to push people outside of their comfort zone because everyone is stronger than they think they are so in one quote it would be ‘what doesn’t challenge you won’t change you!’
I have over 4 years of experience of indoor cycling and personal training. Coming from a family of
keen cyclists it was inevitable I’d end up on a bike In some capacity! (I chose indoor cycling its a lot
warmer!) My passion for high intensity training mixed with strength are noticeable in my cycle
classes and personal training sessions. I can guarantee you’ll be pushed both mentally and
Why do you love teaching at ride!
Was is there not to love! From the amazingly friendly staff to hard working committed members
everything about ride! Gives you that community feel. Many clients in gyms and studios often leave
the minute the warm down is over… Not at ride!
What type of music
If there’s a remix for any song I’ll find it! There’ll be a variation from modern cheesey pop, old skool
classics to high tempo remixes. There’s plenty of variation and just when you feel you have no
strength left.. My music will get you through!
