Michael Schmidt

Ever since opening, I have found Anchorage Cycle a vibrant community. It has become a second home for me. I am so grateful now to be one of the Motivators and share the gift of cycle with everybody that comes to one of my classes.

I love cycle because through the busy week, a cycle class creates an opportunity for you to be in control - and will push you steps closer towards your goals. I encourage you to welcome, embrace and enjoy the challenges that come with every class. Everyone deserves to be sculpted into the person they are striving to be both outside and within. I will do my best to make my rides exciting and fun with a variety of energetic music that will make it an incredible experience helping you to burn maximum calories and tone both body and mind.

Check out one of my classes then lose your mind and find your soul.

Penny Gage

Originally from Sitka, I fell in love with indoor cycling while going to graduate school in Washington, D.C. With a background in a variety of dance styles and as a former Zumba instructor, I come to Anchorage Cycle with a keen ear for rhythm. My class is a place for riders to challenge themselves physically, while getting lost in the beat. Hopefully, with my upbeat and varied music, fun attitude, and love for a challenge, riders will leave the room feeling stronger, and with a smile on their face.

Beth Childress

My number one goal as a Cycle Instructor is to bring passion and soul to Anchorage Cycle. My OneRide is an intense workout but at heart it is a place for people to express emotions in a safe environment with a room full of supportive athletes. When one is comfortable with pushing their body to being uncomfortable there is physical and mental growth. Get uncomfortable, push past limits, and be okay with it; let it hurt and find strength.
Fitness has been a huge part of my life for many years. I enjoy weight training, running, cycling, cross fit, and hiking. I have played guitar since I was eleven and I could listen to Slash and Stevie Ray Vaughan rock out all day long. My love and inspiration from music is apparent in my classes; upbeat, soulful and sort of like a party. Anchorage Cycle is a family and I am honored to be apart of it.

Jenna Jones

Growing up as a Coast Guard military brat, my family was often transferred to new cities and states. My siblings and I always found our way into friendships and school communities through sports and (my sister and I) through music. There is no better way to connect with other individuals than through team activities, a good SWEAT, and a shared passion for music. I am a dental hygienist by day, but as a former college athlete I have always wanted to pursue my deep rooted love for fitness and physical activity. After becoming an active participant at Anchorage Yoga, I overheard a conversation about Anchorage Cycle. While I generally tend to be a solo gym rat, I knew that if Anchorage Yoga could have such a powerful impact on my life, so could the cycle studio. After several classes, I realized I had found the avenue I was looking for. I couldn't be more happy to have started my journey into indoor-cycle instructing. The real magic happens outside our comfort zones!
I would love nothing more than to change the way clients look at fitness. It is not about one workout, it is a lifestyle! So clip in with me, jam out to some great music, and leave every class feeling better than when you walked in.

Michelle Sasse

Growing up in Nebraska I learned how to work hard and play hard. I'm a cornhusker at heart but I was drawn to Alaska for its beauty and adventure. I'm a dental hygienist by day and a fitness fanatic by night. From the time I moved to Alaska, Anchorage Yoga Cycle has been my outlet, my escape, and my bliss. The energy of the studio and the humans that I surround myself with fuel me daily. I'm ready to give back. I'm ready to show you vulnerability, empowerment, confidence, and happiness, all because that has been my ongoing journey with AYC and I hope you too can embark on your own journey and take what you need from us. I let my action come before my fear when I decided to become a Motivator to give you one sexy, sweaty, and sassy ride.
