Rhea first came to Inner Cycle Sept. 12, 2016 after her treadmill broke and all the girls from work were going. Inner Cycle had just opened that week.
She said, “My first ride was with Morgan Rieger, I sat in the back corner and was nervous. I didn’t know what to expect or if I was going to be able to do it! Christina Santo sat in the back beside me to keep me company. Love her for that! It took a year until I came out of that back corner.” Now, almost 400 rides later Rhea confidently rides front row and comes early to make sure she gets her favorite bike every time!
Rhea says she loves the good vibes when you walk in the door. “It’s the motivation of the team atmosphere and the feeling of everyone working together with the same goal that keeps me coming back everyday, often twice a day!” Her motivation and love of spin has rubbed off on her family too! Whenever the kids are in town visiting she gets to babysit her granddaughter and they come for a ride!
Rhea also enjoys running 10k races but due to medication side effects has only been able to spin this year. She says its keeps her muscles strong and feels way better when she stays active.
