Kirsten’s passion for fitness started in 1999, in her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. What began as a casual gym membership to transform her sedentary body turned into a lifelong love of helping others find a stronger, healthier version of themselves.
Her training led to international certifications as a Les Mills instructor, teaching high impact and strength classes to fellow kiwis, then in her relocated home of London for 9 years.
A move to LA for her advertising day job led to a new challenge. After placing 2nd in the country in a body transformation competition, Kirsten’s fitness journey took her to the stage for Ms Muscle Beach, winning several trophies. A challenge of an entirely different kind soon followed when she tore her ACL. Heartbroken at a long road to recovery, her rehab took her to the bike…and Spinning® became her outlet. Today she teaches multiple programs and has continued her training with AFAA/NASM. Once a hater, Kirsten believes anyone can find their passion for pedaling with the right motivation and high energy tunes. She strives to help everyone create their own unique fitness journey, and welcomes all levels, from absolute beginner to pro athlete. Come for a dose of sunshine and stress release, then leave with a sweaty smile.
