STRENGTH - Long & Lean (OFF THE BIKE)


This class is taught by:

Maria Zemen

A lifelong soccer player, dance machine and all around fitness enthusiast, Psycle has given Maria the opportunity to channel her intensity and passion into helping her students achieve their mental and physical fitness goals. After two re-constructive knee surgeries took her out of the game she loved, Maria discovered indoor cycling as a perfect means to rehab her BODY, MIND and SOUL. “From the minute I climbed my first standing hill on the bike, I felt that competitive spirit come alive in me again. I couldn’t get enough.” Maria takes an encompassing approach when teaching on the bike incorporating seated and standing sprints, tricep dips, heavy hill climbs, oblique crunches, hovers, isolations and more. Energy and form permeate her rides. Incorporating a diverse mix of music that will keep you motivated and coming back for more, Maria plays everything from System of a Down to Shakira to Johnny Cash. You’ll find your BODY and MIND connection get stronger as you build strength and endurance on the bike.

Maria’s passion and intensity extend beyond the bike. She also teaches total body strength classes that focus on pushing you past your comfort zone while you build confidence and meet your fitness goals. Maria designs her strength routines to target all major muscle groups and provide various modification techniques for all fitness levels. In addition to using your own body weight to build strength, you’ll incorporate various “toys” that will work your muscles in a whole new way including: body bars, medicine balls, gliding discs, stability balls, bosu and more. “You have to keep your muscles guessing if you are going to get stronger and push yourself past that plateau point. It’s all about determination and change.”

Whether she’s leading you on the bike or kicking your butt at strength, you’ll find Maria’s energy, humor and passion will fuel your fire to reach new heights you never thought possible.

Jennifer Dougherty

Jenn attended her first class at Psycle in 2014 looking for a place to relieve the stress of balancing work, home and her kid’s schedules. To her surprise she found that and so much more. Jenn not only found a place to escape, but also a great group of people who challenge and supported her in her journey to a better person both inside and out. After spending a few months on the bike, a friend convinced her to step into that “other room” and try a class with Maria. From that day forward her passion and focus on building a stronger, leaner, healthier body took off. Jenn quickly realized the benefit of strength training and began to split her time between the strength and spin rooms. Then in early 2017 she began her path to TRX certification. The advantage of TRX is it's “all core, all the time”. So while you are building the long lean muscles everyone strives for, you are constantly strengthening your core. Jenn will guide you in the use of the TRX straps, which can be intimidating, while stressing proper form to get the most out of your workout. Each class will work every major muscle group as well as incorporate cardio to maximize your calorie burn. TRX can be easily modified to challenge anyone at any fitness level and experience, so what are you waiting for; it’s time to step out of your box and give TRX a try.
Never the same workout twice! This off-the-bike power circut training class uses challenging combinations of movement, balance, stretching, biometrics and core work to build strength and perfect your physique. These body altering moves are set to great music to keep you going! Classes may use stability balls, body bars, weights, mats, medicine balls,  sliding discs all incorporating your body weight as key resistance. Feel and see  your body change with each class.
