Katy | RealRyder Instructor, New Mommy, Volunteer and Seasoned Vacationer
I grew up in the water as a swimmer, swim instructor, coach and water aerobics intructor. Wanting desperately to become a runner, I competed in a half marathon and a triathlon only to discover I am definitely not a runner but that I loved cycling! After taking indoor cycling classes at various studios around the valley, I was so excited at the opportunity to work along side my friends teaching Real Ryder!
I love to vary my workouts – you’ll climb, sprint and ryde your way to feeling fabulous with a soundtrack of Glee on Saturdays, current hits and old school hip-hop. I think that the music makes the class so please message me for requests and ideas!
I love to be involved in my community, volunteering for a number of wonderful valley charities. My favorite thing to do in the world is vacation (who doesn’t love that) – we ski in the winter and beach in the summers and after college I backpacked around western Europe for 2.5 months by myself! I’ve been with my partner Kelly for over 5 years and we have 2 dogs and a beautiful 6 month old daughter named Palmer. Much like Real Ryder instructor Whitney, I too LOVE, LOVE, LOVE delicious beer!
