Sarah Buchanan | Mojo Cycling Studio
“Sarah motivates me to work hard every time I take her classes. She makes me feel good about myself no matter how much I slacked off the day/week before. Her personality is contagious and I’d recommend her to anyone looking to better themselves physically and mentally.” –Mitch
“Sarah is a fantastic instructor and really makes me feel comfortable and relaxed about working hard. Regaining fitness is a long and hard journey and one that requires lots of support from friends and family and to get that from an instructor is what has made the real difference for me. God bless her!” –David
“Not only does Sarah give you a fantastically sweaty workout, she ALWAYS offers the most genuine and heartfelt motivation during each workout. There are times while sweating on the bike, that I’ve had tears streaming down my face, because of how she addresses the stresses of everyday life while making you feel like you truly can get through anything.” –Mary
“Sarah has a gift. Each class that I take with her pushes me to new levels of fitness, both physically and emotionally. She encourages us to leave the drama and bullsh*t of life at the door and to use our time in class to do something for ourselves, to center our minds, bodies, and spirits so that we are well equipped to take on life’s challenges. She does all of this while delivering the most intensive indoor spinning classes at Mojo Cycling. Her passion for living a healthy lifestyle is ever apparent in each class. Because of her passionate style of teaching, I am voting for her to be awarded the Class Pass Best Instructor of 2017.” –Latoya
