“His music is fire, his form corrections are on point, and his class is always different and challenging” — Mary-Kate

“Glenn makes working out so fun! He goes above and beyond to make themed classes and personally pushes each participant in his class. I live for my Sunday’s with him!” —Kelley

“Glenn has an amazing energy in the classroom and he brings his humor, kindness, and expertise to every class. His workouts always feel meticulously thought-out, and he is more concerned with quality than quantity. Glenn clearly loves his job the way we all should. Thanks for bringing the mojo, Glenn!”  —Mary

Candy Morales, Flywheel Sports: Stadium Cycling – Old Town

“Candy is incredibly inspiring and always pushes her classes to perform. She has got to be the toughest spin instructor in town. I always go to Candy for a good bum kicking. The best part is she spins the entire class and does everything she asks of us herself. If she can do it while instructing there is NO EXCUSE why I can’t.” —Evelyn

“Consistently gives her best effort and is highly motivating. Goes above and beyond to give her riders the best experience, and she has a tremendous personal weight loss and fitness story.”—Erin

“She is amazing! Energetic and empowering. Candy loves her clients and always delivers a great class.” —Angel

“Her energy, the way she teaches her flywheel class gives me an incredible high. She pushes you to the limit and goes past it to have you perform at your ultimate level.” Truly love her!!” —Lisa

Lauren Bellagamba,  Mirepoix Wellness Studio – Wicker Park, Studio Three – River North, Yoga Squad – Gold Coast

“Lauren is not only a phenomenal yoga instructor, but she also leads each practice with compassion. She takes the time to genuinely get to know her students, which is rare in such a big city. Her classes have become a safe place for me that I look forward to each time I have the opportunity to attend. Her Hip Hop Yoga classes are legendary! She brings a level of playfulness that makes everyone leave with a smile on their face (even when heading out into an epic Chicago blizzard)!” —Lindsey

“Her classes are simply incredible. Never the same routine once. She teaches a variety of yoga classes and is very accommodating. A very skilled instructor that not only knows the principals of the art she is teaching but does so from the heart. She is extremely dedicated and has challenged me in my own practice class and class again. Also, her music is AMAZING.” —Meagan

Her classes are no joke and you can tell that she cares so much about making sure you get the best workout possible. Her energy is infectious! Everyone in Chicago should be taking her classes.” —Carina
