Krista is a native Washingtonian who grew up in McLean and Great Falls and currently lives in Vienna. She has been teaching indoor cycle since 2002 at various clubs in the area, most notably The White House Athletic Center. After many years of her patrons asking her to open her own cycle studio, she finally did and attributes the birth of Cycle Chi to all of the wonderful cycle students who inspired her (you know who you are!). Krista is cycle certified by Schwinn, Keiser and GEAR, and holds an AFAA Group Exercise Instructor, TRX and ACE Parkinson's Cycle Certifications.
Rachel discovered the benefits of cycling over 8 years ago when a friend invited her to come to a spin class. She loves what cycling does for the mind, body and spirit all the while being fun! Her goal is to help everyone feel successful, energized and have positive energy after a class. She is cycle certified by Madd Dog and Schwinn and is AFAA Group Exercise Certified. Rachel moved to Vienna in 2012 with her husband, Steve and her children Aidan, Zoe and Natey.
