Last Friday I finally received the keys to what will be, Vancouver’s first dedicated spinning facility. We will be located on West 6th between Granville and Fir Streets.
The classes I have been holding in the loft have been jammed and steam is picking up very quickly, as is my excitement. So many new and fun people are coming into our loft every day.
I am in the process of interviewing and auditioning new instructors. Having great teachers who share the Cadence philosophy is so important to me. The quality of these people is vital in achieving what Cadence will become in the community. So far the process has been very positive and I am meeting lots of new people from Vancouver’s fitness & cycling community.
At Cadence, it is important instructors are encouraging & welcoming while not being intimidating. They will push students to go to their edge, while at the same time, not going outside any boundaries. In the end, the student knows how hard they can push themselves on a given day – it is their class. We will inspire you along the way, give you the energy you need, so you will leave every class feeling stronger and walking out the door a different person than when you walked in.
My goal is that people feel at home in the studio which is the feel I’ve been able to create in the temporary space. I notice people going from shy to completely comfortable at class, and leaving with a smile on their face. That is so amazing to see as an instructor! I will take this living room feel people are experiencing right now, down to the permanent studio when we open in July.
Music is another key component of Cadence classes, so the sound system will be great. The class schedule will have alot of variety with 6 classes per day and the bikes will be of the highest quality.
Right now we are in the process of putting the studio together with the exact feel & look that is Cadence. Not my strength, our designer Colin Szasz is working his magic. He is amazing at what he does and I can’t wait to see what he creates!
My goal is becoming reality, and I couldn’t be happier.
