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.
