I grew up in Tampa Florida where I first fell in love with spinning! I moved to Utah in December (pro tip.. don't move to a cold place in the dead of winter). There were no spin studios when I first moved here, then I found Rideologie when I moved to Salt Lake. It was the first place I felt like home & quickly became addicted to the community dynamic Rideologie offers. I've been spinning for a little over 10 years. I love to get lost in the music. You'll often find me singing along to my playlists (don't worry I try not to belt them into the mic)! I love to have a great time and meet new people. I've met some of my very favorite people in the ride room. My classes are all about having fun while maximizing your workout! When I'm not at the studio you can find me at the pool or in the mountains. I love to swim and hike or anything outdoors really!

Hi! My name is Jane, and I first started spinning back in 2017 when Rideologie first opened. It was the only spin studio in Salt Lake at the time, and continues to be the best! I fell in love with the energy created in the spin room. Finding community, a great workout, and learning along the way had me hooked on spin. I love to ride because each class gives you the opportunity to leave stronger than when you came in; whether mentally, emotionally or physically. Rideologie has been my happy place from day one. Favorite Move on the Bike: Hover Combos & Standing Sprints Guilty Pleasure: Jalapeno Cheetos… don’t knock 'em till you try ‘em! Favorite Artist: Off the bike: Twenty One Pilots.

Born and raised in Utah, Lauren hails from Kaysville and is proud to call it her hometown for the past 23 years! She was introduced to the passion of road cycling by her dad and has loved every minute of spending time with him and creating memories into adulthood. Although new to the cycling world, Lauren instantly fell in love with the sport and Rideologie community. Having an outgoing personality to perform and speak in front of people, she knew she wanted to someday get on the platform and lead a ride herself. Lauren believes that music is the most integral part of any workout and being an amateur violinist and vocalist herself music has always carried her in the big rollercoaster of life. A hairdresser by trade turned preschool teacher, Lauren momentarily switched careers to be a part of her 4 year old son’s early education milestones and loves watching him thrive. She has been with the love of her life for the past ten years and is grateful for his unconditional love and support through her ambitious adventures. When you clip into the bike in Lauren’s class she asks that you abide by two rules: First that you don’t compare yourself. Everyone had to start somewhere and the Rideologie community is a family who supports and uplifts each other during our workout and beyond. Second is that you walk out feeling more bad ass than when you entered. Lauren will motivate you to push yourself past your limits but you have to show up as well.

I am 21 years old and currently a senior at the University of Utah. I am currently studying Kinesiology/Community Health with a minor in nutrition. I am passionate about all things health and fitness and love to share my passion with others. I love spin because it allows me to forget about everything else going on. It gives me 45 minutes to breath, listen to music, catch a beat and move my body…it doesn’t get much better than that! I would describe my style on the bike as powerful, yet care free. I love to just feel the beat and vibe out! My favorite move on the bike is tap to push! my favorite music is edm or pop and my favorite artist is Justin Bieber, duh ;) My guilty pleasure is definitely Crumbl cookies!!! Nothing is more satisfying than opening that pink box!

Taylor is a 23 extroverted optimist, foodie, Beyhive member, hip hop lover, dog person, movie critic, travel enthusiast, and occasionally I have my witty moments. I thrive off of the energy of others, and I always try to foster an environment that promotes warm and fun vibes for everyone around.
I attended my first spin class my sophomore year at the University of Utah, and I haven’t looked back since. I fell in love with the energy, music, and the intensity of the challenging routines that were different every class. Also, I had the best instructor who inspired all aspects of my life and is the main reason I pursued this path of becoming an instructor myself. My goal is to simply support those around me on their journey for a healthier and happier life!
