Samer, like Hammer!

Samer is originally from Austin TX, but has lived in Hoboken since December 2017! (Congrats on 6 months!) He was looking for a change since he lived in Texas most of my life, so living outside of NYC made sense in order to work on his tech startup.


Samer started riding at PRIME shortly after he moved, and prior to moving he was an instructor in Austin. He was looking for that community feel, good vibes studio with amazing riders and instructors, so naturally he found us and wanted to join the team!  


To Samer, cycling to the music and being able to move/sweat it out is therapeutic. His goal is to get you to push yourself beyond where you think you can go. We all have things holding us back but it’s being able to push through that and get stronger with your mind and body. You can sweat out whatever you need to sweat out and take those learnings outside the studio.


Things you need to know about him:  


Two things you can’t live without: Pizza and my dog! (We love our doggie dads!)


Favorite holiday:  Thanksgiving because it’s just starting to get cold but it’s not freezing. You eat, spend time with family/friends and are just grateful


Secret passion: Writing motivational pieces to get people to be more balanced!


Favorite place to eat in Hoboken:  Grimaldi's Pizzeria. Typical order is a large cheese pizza extra mozzarella and black olives. YUM!


Currently on your playlist:  Anything with Drake or Beyoncé, lots of hip-hop


Favorite drink:  Local craft beer…but if feeling fancy then an Old Fashioned

Instructor Spotlight on Jane Collins!

This down to earth gorgeous gal was born and raised in New Jersey! Jane is from Sayreville and moved to Hoboken 2 years ago. She attended Rutgers University and moved to our hood in 2016 while accepting her dream job. She loves living right outside of NYC and experiencing all it has to offer! (who doesn't?!) 


How and why she fell in <3 with cycling:  Jane’s best friend introduced her to cycling and PRIME; they both new Alexa from growing up. Naturally, her first PRIME class was 6am with Alexa – She was hungover and actually didn’t like it at first! (Attributed to being hungover, dehydrated and not being able to keep up...we get it!).  She came back and fell in-love with the experience; her mind/body have never felt so clear and strong. 

Jane only took Alexa’s classes for the first few months and then finally signed up for the BFF challenge where she bought an unlimited month. She attended class every day and PRIME became part of her routine, if she didn’t go she was not in the right state of mind. Cycling at PRIME keeps her happy and grounded!

About her class:  Classes are music based, and are all different. She wants everyone to challenge themselves and leave feeling great. This gal loves to climb so you’ll be sure to feel that booty burn!

Jane outside of PRIME:  Two things she can’t live without, Dior pump mascara and Penne Vodka. YUM!

Favorite Holiday:  Christmas because you get to spend time with friends/family and presents! :) 

Secret Passion:  She is a food lover and critic at heart and even has an Instagram account dedicated to food @janesgainss

Favorite place to eat in Hoboken:  As you may have guessed, it’s Italian @ Trattoria Saporito where she orders the Penne Vodka 

Currently on her playlist:  Maroon 5 - Girls Like You ft. Cardi B. She loves songs that remind her of tailgating!
