Valerie grew up in the Philadelphia area. After ten years in South Carolina, where she first fell in love with CycleBar, she finally moved back home and joined the Plymouth Meeting team in August 2020. She loves CycleBar because not only does it push you to compete against yourself, it doesn't even feel like the workout (cue the lights and club music!). Although she listens to all types of music outside the studio, her go-to workout music includes artists like Drake, Valentino Khan, and Rage Against the Machine. Her favorite CycleBar choreography is crunches out of the saddle to work those obliques!
