She continued her golf career in college, and had the opportunity to play at the NCAA Div. III National Championship three times. After college, Kelly started looking for more ways to stay fit. She started running 5k’s, began practicing yoga, and eventually decided to compete in her first triathlon. That is where her love for Spinning began.

She uses energizing music to encourage and challenge riders each class. Her favorite quote is, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”

Kelly Rauch instructs the following:
Remember to bring your mat for this spin class! An intense 45-minute cardio bike workout (easily modified for all levels) will have you ready to lay on the mat and switch gears. The remaining 15 minutes of class will focus on strengthening and toning the core, specifically abdominals, obliques, and lower back muscles.
Be ready to burn calories and build strength in this intense 45 minute cardiovascular workout using stationary cycles. Music and verbal cues simulate cycling on roads and trails. While it is a super-intense workout, it can easily be modified for anyone, even beginners. This class is a great way to build up to the hour long rides or to grab a quick workout in after work! You will love the music!
