Sam, a Lexington native, is a former pole vaulter for the University of Kentucky Track & Field team. After hanging up her track spikes upon graduating from UK, she found a sense of freedom as well as happiness in finally getting to experience other forms of fitness. When she’s not at the studio on the bike, you can find her out on a back road running with her Australian shepherd, Autumn, or in her garage gym at home lifting up and putting down some heavy weights! She uses her experience as a D1 athlete as a foundation of her class programming so be ready to sweat! Sam believes that fitness should not only be functional and sustainable, but also a personal form of mental therapy. Catch her at the studio and mention anything about any sci-fi/fantasy series (especially LOTR) or true crime and be ready to chat!
