|Cycle and TRX Instructor PT|
I started in the fitness world as a Can-Fit Pro certified personal trainer and soon moved to cycling and group classes after seeing that individuals were much more motivated to achieve their goals when put in a safe and somewhat competitive environment. With seven years of cycling experience behind him and the new addition of TRX to his coaching portfiolio, Matt approaches each of his classes as if it were the first time. He does not consider himself a teacher or instructor, but rather a coach. The ability to be physically active does not require much teaching, but the ability to achieve goals that my clients once thought unachievable, requires a very focused coaching approach. Along with my certifications, I have also studied in sports psychology and after attending my class, you will soon realize that psychology plays a much larger role than physical ability – the goal is only achieved when the physical and mental bodies are intertwined. He believes that breath initiates every movemeant and that behind every physical action must be an intention for success to be achieved. So lets find our breath, set a goal and haul ass to the finish line…
Catchphrase: “If you do not know why you are here, neither do I”

Tricia took her first spinning class, ever, in November 2008. She started spinning as a way to ramp up her fitness regime which already included yoga and running. After one very hard class she was hooked! Then Tricia started to work at Get Spun in January 2009 and she became an instructor after being encouraged by Christie. She was certified in 2011 to teach Gravity, which has quickly become her new favorite class! Tricia wants your 45 minute workout to be challenging and fun enough that you will want to come back week after week, day after day!

At the tender age of 25, J.S. sadly noticed his first signs of aging. The high energy levels he required to juggle a 9 to 5 job, a project studio and various musical projects were dwindling. A decade’s worth of rock and roll had taken its toll on his body and he wasn’t about to slow down at such an early age. He needed something to incorporate into his life that would revive his energy levels and he was never a coffee drinker. A friend of his gave him a free week pass to a gym and that is where he took his indoor cycling class. Although he could barely make it through his first class, he was hooked immediately! Indoor cycling combined his two passions in life: fitness and music!
It didn’t take long for him to get certified and start teaching across town. Given his musical background, you can expect to be taken on an eclectic, high intensity musical journey that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready for anything life can throw at you.

My two great passions are travel and physical fitness. One compliments the other as the healthier and stronger we are, the more adventure we can handle! It only made sense to become a fitness professional after realizing that it was impossible for me to sit still. With over four years of experience teaching indoor cycling classes, it remains a preferred method of training as it is not only challenging physically, but requires mental focus and intensity. Each class can be a journey in which, pushing your own limits, you can experience that adventure.
As a certified CanFitPro Personal Trainer Specialist and TRX instructor, I have seen how effective a combination of cardio and strength training is and I’m enthusiastic with the transformations I have seen at Getspun! I truly believe that ‘Change begets change!’

|Certified Yoga Instructor|
I found yoga in 2006 when I took my first class to loosen up a stiff body. That experience ended up being much more than that. I felt lighter, happier, more calm and began to practice regularly. Through its consistent practice I felt a calling to get a deeper understanding of it. This calling led me to India to study hatha yoga at the Sivananda Yoga Institute. As I’ve continued to connect with yoga my curiosity brought me to the ashtanga practice, of which I’ve had the opportunity to study with some of its most renowned teachers- including Paul Dallaghan, certified by Ashtanga Yoga Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sri O.P. Tiwari, one of the few remaining gurus of pranayama today. I’m truly thankful for the teachings that have been passed down, and I continue to learn every day from my teachers in Toronto as well as from the people that surround me.
It’s my sincere passion to pay forward what I’ve learned, to those who are ready to grow with the practice of yoga. Classes offered take place in safe supportive environments conducive for individual learning. Yoga is whole and inclusive. Classes offered are accessible to all regardless of financial concern or personal limitation.
