Hi LOVE fam, I’m Emy! I hope I can bring people many reasons to smile; be it through my coaching, my rambling conversations about weird stuff, or even just me. But something has to be said about what makes me want to smile so big, and movement has been a major source of joy in my world. I’ve always been a runner, but I fell in love with spin three years ago when I moved to Austin TX and have been a rider at LOVE ever since. Combining my passion for music, endurance, and finding joy in the struggle, LOVE stole my heart.

Riding gives me 45 minutes to get out of my head, feel like a badass, and remind myself that I was made to do hard things. I want to empower others to dial into their strength and strive to be the best version of themselves. Some of the music you can expect to hear from my classes include house beats, EDM, Y2K throwbacks, and the occasional rock headbangers. My faith is at the core of who I am and I firmly believe that the work done on this bike translates into our everyday lives. I was raised to believe in faith over fear, in making a difference over indifference, and that growth comes from discomfort. Leaving my class, I hope you feel like you just left the dance floor and are on top of the world!
