Adrienne decided to became a Certified Mad Dogg Spin instructor in 2013 after being a cycling student for almost 4 years. Adrienne fell in love with the combination of speed, endurance and strength cycling classes offered and wanted to share her passion for the sport with others.
Her main goal during every session is to motivate her students to step outside their "comfort zone" to discover their true athletic potential. The best part about being an instructor is seeing her clients fulfill their health goals.
Adrienne was born and raised in Ohio. Where her love of athletics started at a very young age. She earned her varsity letter at Pickerington High school in basketball and track. She went on to run track on a collegian level at Ashland University, finishing her bachelors degree at The Ohio State University in 2002 (Go Bucks). Currently, when Adrienne is not motivating her spin students, she is spending lots of time with family and friends.
