The first time I met Stephanie, I was a recent Cycle Bar addict and was excitedly taking as many classes with as many instructors.
To put it lightly, Steph is incredible -- both on the bike and off. Her energy and charisma is unmatched and her quirky personality gives riders permission to come to the bike as they are.

Her path, though, never aligned with fitness. As she shares in our episode, the 20-year-old version of Steph would have laughed at the thought of teaching fitness classes. After finding a passion in the dental field, Stephanie was convinced by a co-worker to go to a free cycling class. Though she objected at first, she eventually obliged, and the rest as we know it is history.
After almost two years of teaching, Stephanie was named Lead Instructor at Cycle Bar Waverly. The studio is set to open at the end of June, and when it does, be sure to sign up for one of her classes! Until you can hang out with Steph in person, follow her on Instagram.
