“I grew up in the Bayfield/Durango area and was a soccer player and snowboarder growing up. I have been teaching group fitness since 2011. During that time I have had two babies and sustained (and recovered from) a catastrophic knee injury. I try to teach from a place of empathy and understanding that everyone is at a different place in their fitness journey when they come to my class, because I’ve been in most of those different places too at one time or another. I believe in using the gym to train so that we can live our lives to the fullest – whether that’s skiing the back country, competing in the iron horse, simply picking up your grandchildren without pain, staving off conditions such as high blood pressure & diabetes, or taking care of our mental wellness. I’m passionate about the positive impact that fitness has in peoples lives and love sharing that in a group fitness setting. I truly feel fortunate to be a part of helping people to reach their fitness goals both inside and outside of the gym. Outside of the gym I am an avid mountain biker and enjoy and being active with my husband and three kiddos”. Check out the websites below for more information on Les Mills Sprint and CXWorks.
Scot has lived in the area since 2001. He is an avid cyclist, outdoor adventure enthusiast, and backpacker. He races road & mtb bikes and adventure races. He loves to camp with his family… tent camping, BTW. And he has traveled to Swaziland, Africa the past 2 Summers for mission work. He has taught spin for 5 years and has coached DEVO for 3 years. He loves hanging out with his wife, daughter (15) and son (11). They all love to bike, hike, climb, boat, camp, travel and explore. He works full-time for Durango Fire & Rescue and you will usually see him show up in uniform. Scot’s fitness/spin instruction integrates HIIT (high intensity interval training), core training, orange-zone training (75% of the time at 85% of max HR), explosion, plyometrics and most of all fun. Scot loves all music and incorporates many genres into his playlists – if you have a favorite song/artist, let him know. Scot loves to hear about your likes and dislikes about his teaching. He ‘loves to see people on the edge of puking’. Join his class and get ready for intense fun!!

I am thrilled to be teaching at Axiom! I taught group cycling at the Durango Rec Center for almost 10 years, from 2002 until 2011 – some of you might have been to my class on T/Th at noon? After moving out of state for 6 years my family is back in Durango. I love teaching cycling classes because I believe it is one of the best cardio workouts that can be done by almost anyone, no matter their age or fitness level. I like to use a wide variety of music in my classes and urge everyone to work at their own level, but I also encourage
pushing limits because that is when fitness happens! I love the early morning classes (5:45am) because then I have the rest of the day to enjoy all the great things Durango has to offer.
