What made you want to become a spin instructor?
I was working at my full time job and going home feeling unfulfilled. I wanted to be able to say I had a hobby or interest outside of work. I realized I was taking 2 spin classes a week and a light bulb went off in my head while sitting in a coffee shop with my girlfriends after a class - I literally stood up at that moment, walked home, and signed up for a certification class!

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Rockland County, NY. It is about 45 minutes north of the city (and no it is NOT upstate!) I was a cheerleader for 10 years and was on my High School Varsity team plus a competitive traveling team. Staying active was always very important to me and helped shape me into who I am today. Sadly, we just sold my childhood home - onto the next chapter!

Tell us more abou your Reinvent The Wheel blog!
Reinvent The Wheel NYC is my fitness, recipe, lifestyle blog that I started in July. I am really big into cooking and meal prepping - a lot of my friends were asking for recipes and once I was certified for spinning, I figured it would be an easy way to get my name out there to potential studios and clients. It is important to me to promote positive energy and body images to my followers since it is so easy to get caught up in the unrealistic expectations set for us from social media!

Do you have a New Years resolution?
My New Years resolution is to complete the Whole 30 challenge and give up alcohol for the entire month of January. Your girl loves her some whiskey and red wine - but I will have to suck it up and push through LOL!

What do you enjoy doing on your time off?
I come from a big Italian family so if I am not working or spinning, I am usually spending time with them! We try to get everyone together for Sunday dinner once a month or watch a football game together. We are also die hard New York Ranger fans and love watching games together! {LGR!!}

What's your biggest achievement you made in 2016?
My biggest achievement in 2016 has been finding my own inner peace and putting myself first. Becoming a certified spin instructor definitely pushed me to find this balance in my life and making myself happy. Spinning has changed my life physically and mentally - it is my biggest achievement in 2016. I can't wait to see how it shapes my 2017!

What made you want to become an instructor at Prime Cycle?
After getting certified I was looking for studios in the area that embodied strong, positive energy and had a sense of community. As soon as I walked into Prime Cycle for my first class as a regular student, I knew this was a place I would like to work. My first class was with Dani and she kicked my butt! I knew I wanted to give riders the same exhilarating feeling and workout from then on! 

What was your favorite song in 2016?
Easy - Child's Play by Drake. He is perfection - even though he cancelled the concert in Brooklyn :( (I'm still not over it ) 


Check Alex out at our downtown location on Tuesday & Thursday nights at 7pm!
