Cam Smith

Cam moved here as a wide-eyed flatlander. Luckily, adventures with his friends and older sister opened his eyes to all of the adventures possible here in the Gunnison Valley. In that time he found a love for endurance racing in skimo, trail running, and mountain biking. But he still spends most of his time outside of spandex enjoying the finer things in life. Like smelling the wildflowers or his weird habit of blowing kisses to views when he thinks they are pretty. 

He believes in diverse fitness and training to diverse demands of life. After all, living in CB is more enjoyable when someone can ask you to go for a run, ride, freeski, tour, etc. and you are always able to say yes. Indoor training at CORE is an essential foundation that allows us to be strong, capable, and confident in ALL of the activities available to us here in Crested Butte.

Kaitlyn Archambault

Kaitlyn started taking spin classes while she was in high school during the off seasons of other sports and always loved the intensity of the workout mixed with good music. It wasn’t until her mid-twenties that she started road cycling and a few years after that discovered her passion for mountain biking. As mountain biking season is always too short in Kaitlyn’s mind, when presented with the opportunity to teach spin at CORE during the winter months, she was game! While she sees indoor spinning classes as gym fitness and separate from her love of outdoor cycling, Kaitlyn appreciates the similarities and the ability to keep cycling muscles strong. Spinning also feeds Kaitlyn’s secret desire to be a DJ and she loves choosing music to help keep classes upbeat, entertaining and physically challenging. Kaitlyn is a Spinning Certified Instructor.

“As far as bio?? Heck I don’t know, nothing impressive here. Taught spin at the YMCA for 4 years and a big history of self-centered amateur endurance sports.” - Rick
