Bethany began teaching group exercise classes and became certified with AFAA back in 1998 while living in Chicago. At the time she was pursuing a career in advertising and public relations but grew to discover that her passion for exercise could be taken to another level by motivating and encouraging others. She became a certified Spinning Instructor through Johnny G/ Mad Dogg Athletics and has been teaching for over 13 years. Also, a level 2 certified TRX instructor, Bethany teaches Spinning/TRX classes which has become one of her favorite workouts. “It’s a perfect combination of high intensity cardio, challenging core and strength training bundled into one fast placed class.”
Aside from teaching at PAI, Bethany is the proud mom of four children. “I try to lead by example for my kids. I want them to grow to understand how much exercise improves your quality of life physically and mentally."
Bethany is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing.

Ride like Lance, train like a Navy Seal! This class is the perfect combination of cardio and strength to give you a complete total body workout.

SpinTRX is ideal for those who want to combine cardio and strength in one visit. This class will help you ease into full hour of TRX.
