Born and raised in Chicago, Demi has always been a city girl and a music nerd. After graduating from Boston's Berklee College of Music in 2014, she moved to NYC and then Los Angeles while working in the music industry. 10 years later, she made her way back to Chicago. Growing up as the music kid means fitness wasn't always her forte. She had to find her own way on her health/fitness journey when she entered the gym in college and that's why she loves being there to help others on their journey now. Though she still stands by her Mantra, "I won't run unless I'm being chased," the day she took her first cycle class, it was game over. Teaching cycle allows Demi to combine two of her absolute favorite things, music and movement, by creating fire playlists and showing people new music, while helping people of all fitness levels achieve their goals. When she's not on the bike, you can catch her snapping fun photos of food as a freelance food photographer called Salad With A Side of Fries, searching for the best almond croissant in town, or hanging with her giant Greek family (did vou reallv think she was gonna say 'Big'?! So 2002). When you hop into one of Demi's classes, you can expect the energy, music and all-around vibes to be at 100! She'll push you, and then crack a few jokes while you recover before hitting you with that tough love to get into the next effort to take you all the way to the finish line.
