Jessie Alegria | Flywheel – Back Bay, Barry’s Bootcamp – Boston
“Jessie is an amazing instructor and an incredible person that gives 100% to everything she does. Jessie shows up and gets the class fired up regardless of class size which may be the hardest thing to do. As a loyal fan of Flywheel, Barrys, and EBF, I know the caliber of instructors in Boston and can truly say Jessie deserves to be at the top due to energy, work ethic, attitude and workout. ” –Mark
“I stumbled upon Jessie’s class when I first moved into the city and was instantly addicted to everything about her. Day in and day out, she helps me push myself past the internal barriers that I set and throughout the time I’ve known her, she has helped me become a more confident and self-loving person. Her classes are consistent in energy, whether it be 5am or 8pm, and you can just tell that she truly loves what she does. She loves people, she loves teaching and she loves putting her unique twist on everything she does. Instructors who put everything that they are into what they do are far and few between, but Jessie truly is one of those instructors.” –Becky
“This girl. Scratch that — this badass, inspiring woman.🙌🏼 I’ve been going to Jessie’s classes for a few years now and she astoundingly keeps improving and finding new ways to inspire and motivate you — as well as make you wicked sore the next day. Her constant positivity and fire playlists make every class like a party with your friends! Addicted. 💪🏼” –Vicki
“She has literally singlehandedly changed my relationship with group exercise classes through her endless support, positive attitude, and genuine care for everyone who takes her class. I now take a class every day, thanks to Jessie, and I am healthier and feel better than ever.” –Thomas
Colin Batty | Flywheel – Back Bay, EverybodyFights – Financial District
Winner for the 3rd year in a row!
“Colin is the absolute best in his field. When my weeks go to the dumps, he’s the only way I want to ring in my weekend. He’s my inner voice on runs and in class. He brings the absolute best out of you every class. Spin class without Colin just isn’t a spin class.” –Disa
“Consistently the most inspirational, makes you work your ass off. Best instructor I have ever come across. The only class I could crawl into with a hangover/bad mood/lazy outlook and walk out of feeling stronger and knowing I put in everything I had.” –Sarah
“Always motivational, never preachy. His class is so tough, but no matter how tired you are walking in, he has you leaving energized and ready to take on the day afterward. His music is also unconventional. Not too many top 40 hits, but really embody who he is. His scream-o noises are the best.” –Heather
“Colin is a best in the stadium pumping out incredible energy to get everyone that much more motivated. Colin shows every time with great music and a great attitude ready to crush. His Flywheel and EBF classes make him hands down the best male instructor. He has a gift to distract you from your everyday worries and bring you into the zone to enjoy the workout and burn calories which is a huge win for everyone.” –Mark
