RIDE INSTRUCTORS

About TK

Relapsed coffee addict, social media victim and corporate warrior by day, I have been a regular fixture at the Port Melbourne studio since returning home earlier this year following a stint in London. Not content with being the most enthusiastic (and loudest) rider in the chamber, I recently joined our cohort of rockstar instructors. Unable to play team sports growing up due to illness, I understand better than most how life-changing and empowering fitness and wellness can be.

 

Your Vibe

Dance, EDM, Trance & House! Rest assured, once you join the #tkridetribe, you’ll be able to go to any festival and know every single DJ in the lineup!

Alter Ego

Tiesto at Ushuaia in Ibiza (with a little bit of drill sergeant for fun)!

 

When You’re Not Riding

Working my 9-5, brunching at Hurricane Handsome, working out at my favourite functional training gym or doing a Costco shopping run.

 

Sweet Escape

Oh, this is a tough one! It would be a difficult toss up between Tomorrowland or heading back to Printworks with my London crew!

Leo

About Leo

I have worked across some of the best fitness boutiques in London teaching most things from pilates to aqua aerobics to boxing and of course indoor cycling! I decided to hop over to Australia for a new challenge and experience a different culture so here I am!

 

Your vibe

My classes are full of purpose, hard work and the occasional sing-along! Be prepared to sweat. My music style is a mix between hip / R&B with the occasional house!

 

Alter Ego

I don’t have one! I always aspire to be a bigger and better version of myself!

 

When you’re not riding

When I’m not riding you can usually catch me sleeping or somewhere in the boxing gym as that’s my second home!!

 

Sweet Escape

Well, that’s a weird question because I’m right where I want to be! I’ve always wanted to visit Australia and here I am!

About Raquel

Hello, I’m Raquel and I’m an activewear addict. Former legal eagle who taught fitness classes on the side to keep me sane. Made me super sane I decided to do it full time! In the fitness scene for half a decade now, I also teach HIIT, Barre and Pilates so you’ll see elements of these reflected in the athleticism and technique-focus of my classes.

 

Your Vibe

Zero-fluff, no-bull and authentic. Music genre-wise, I’m all about the big beat drops! EDM is life. It’s not a Raquel RIDE or BODHI ATHLETE class without at least one Steve Aoki track. Love me some RnB and Latin beats too.

 

Alter Ego

I turn into a she-wolf in classes.

 

When You’re Not Riding

In my go-to specialty cafés in the city. I’m a coffee snob and not sorry.

 

Sweet Escape

Havana, Cuba is definitely on the bucket list!

Gwen

Gwen

About Gwen

Hello there! I’m Gwen currently studying in RMIT,  born & raised in Malaysia but born to rock on the bike! I may be a petite instructor but get ready for feisty and fierce moments in my class!  Catch up with me for a coffee after class, fun fact I am a barista as well. My passion for rhythm ride never stops ever since I’ve started leading spin classes in the capital of Malaysia, therefore, it’ll never stop wherever I go.

 

Your Vibe

When you walk into my class you are gonna feel BADASS, you’re gonna have FUN and instead of just ridding, you’re going to feel like you’re on a dance floor! The intensity in my class is a bomb and you’ll never want to stop riding! I love EDM, HIP-HOP/RAP, POP and basically any songs you can groove with it.

 

Alter Ego

When I’m in the zone I feel like I have a KPOP moment where I enjoy my creative movements on the bike.

 

When You’re Not Riding

I’ll be doing a lot of Pilates, Barre and Boxing classes in Kaya fitness and other than that eating is my forte, therefore, I enjoy most of my time trying out different cafes in Melbourne!

 

Sweet Escape

If I could go anywhere in the world, I would really want to be in a Hot Air Balloon in Turkey where you’ll see breathtaking views from above. I hope to see you rocking on the bike with me!”

About Tirrell

I am a bit of a Nomad, I’ve lived in Japan, Hawaii, most major US cities, and now Melbourne!!  I believe in the power of intention, my motto is “When you give life, you get life”. My passion for fitness has always been there but I have taken a few detours to get to where I am today; I was a hairstylist for ten years before making the huge step to redirect my life and become an instructor at SoulCycle which led me to one of the most amazing times in San Francisco.  I was a dancer for a long time and feel like I get to express myself through movement on a bike every day.  I have a YouTube channel where I create videos to motivate people, I am studying for my personal training certifications and will be starting a Health Coaching business. My goal is to help people realize their power and live their best lives.

 

Your Vibe

I love to create an experience, you’ll notice right away that I love to set a good high vibe for the room from the moment you set your bike up to the time you walk out.  I am super eclectic with my music taste so you never know which Beyonce remix you’ll hear next to Tove Lo next to The Prodigy and right into crazy hip-hop throwback.  You’ll leave feeling empowered, a little bewildered, but excited for that next class to witness your incredible strength once more.

 

Alter Ego

Rihanna, I love her style and Boss Babe mentality.

 

When You’re Not Riding

Most likely exploring the city with my favourite pooch Hilo. I also love to try new restaurants and see a good show.

 

Sweet Escape

I love the beach, so maybe a remote island somewhere with water so clear you can see straight to the ocean floor.

Your vibe

My Athlete class playlists are made up of deep base EDM with an influence of synth R’N’B. Hard hitting tracks that have a strong beat along with tracks that have powerful breaks.

 

Alter Ego

The name ‘Thor’ gets thrown around these days with my long hair and beard.

 

When you’re not riding

You will find me either: Doing a fitness related activity; With pets as I run a pet sitting service which I love; Or in front of the camera for photo shoots & modelling castings.

High Energy Fun

 

Alter Ego

#REF!

 

Your music style

An eclectic mix of wherever my mood takes me. One week it could be 70’s disco the next 90’s RnB. I love to match my tunes to the personality of my riders and take them on a journey!

 

When you’re not riding

You’ll find me either behind or in front of a camera, I work in media and love creating content! If I’m not there I’ve escaped the city and am on an adventure somewhere in country Australia getting some fresh air!

 

Intensity of your class

Anywhere from a 6 to a 8 1/2. I always keep it sweaty but like to work within the capabilities of each class so people can refine their technique and feel like they are nailing the basics!

After hours in Brooklyn. Sweaty. SEXY. Challenging. RnB. Pop. Hip-Hop. Always with a good throwback in the mix. Expect to leave feeling motivated to be the most badass version of yourself.

 

Alter Ego

Cardi B. Need I say more?

Your Vibe

My vibe is to inspire and empower my tribe through sounds of House, Electronic, Indie and Pop. The chamber for me is a space where growth and self-awareness take place all in 45 minutes, I want my tribe to leave not just feeling but truly being the strength and confidence they feel during their ride.

Ariel

About Ariel

After growing up as an actress, I decided it was time to chase my other passion in life – fitness. While filming a TV series in 2016, I underwent my certification in fitness and decided to make it my mission to do every type of training possible, ranging from sprint training, pilates, boxing, HIIT and of course – Ride! I have trained in Ride all over the states and is ready to kick your butts into gear.

 

Your Vibe

Sweaty, fast and ready to WORK. My classes are designed to push you to your limits but there’s always time for a boogy to the RnB tunes. The trick is you’ll have so much fun singing along that you won’t even realize your heart rate is through the roof! I’m known for my 10/10 intensity, so If you don’t walk out of class still catching your breath, you know you can push harder next time!

 

Alter Ego

Two words: Smiling Assassin. Before and after class, you can expect smiles and giggles but the second that 45 mins sweat sesh begins I’m ready to snap into my fierce zone. I take no prisoners and will push you to your limits, but don’t you worry, the second class is over I’ll be sweet again!

 

When You’re Not Riding

When I’m not riding, you can almost guarantee I’m training somewhere else! As a self-confessed obsessed exerciser, I’m bound to be out for a run or killing my core with some pilates. Otherwise, I’ll be eating my way across Melbourne’s vegan cafes (Urban Projuice is my second home) and cuddling my gorgeous puppy/boyfriend/nephews.

 

Sweet Escape

Without a doubt, my happy place is Byron Bay. I spend the end of each year there on my family holiday and it is the highlight of every single year. There is something about the vibe there that is unbeatable. Everyone is calm, happy and healthy and let’s be honest – the vegan food is NEXT LEVEL.
