STACIE ARGUSIndo Row Instructor
Greetings fellow health enthusiasts! You can call me Stacie. I fell in love with Indoor Cycling over 10 years ago. After getting my MBA in Finance and working in banking I decided to take a break and explore a different arena. Now I am a fitness model/actor and Marketing/Web contractor between teaching classes as well as a NASM certified personal trainer. I jumped at the opportunity when I was offered to get Schwinn certified in 2004 then Keiser certified. I am certified in IndoRow, teach yoga to children, enjoy cross fit type workouts and sweat it out in Bikram yoga. Spinning with great music makes a great combination to reaching your fitness goals while having fun. Riding rids excess toxins, reduces stress, strengthens mind/body and brings overall harmony to the body that then radiates to all around you. Breath and movement are blessings that can be taken for granted. Concentrating on these as well as form and tempo makes classes appealing to all fitness levels. I love to get to know my riders and see their journey. My class vibe is energetic with music mixes to get you inspired to go hard! I read you the rider and alter the ride accordingly…no cookie-cutter routines here. Love yourself!

NICOLA GAHAboodybarre Instructor
My love of the body, movement and the art of movement began as a young girl after watching the ballet performance “Nutcracker” on my family’s TV; was it the dance, the color, the art, the collaboration, the music? I think it was everything combined making it a magical experience.
This is what I love about the body; it’s miraculous the way it moves, holds us all together and gives us a sense of freedom – walking, running, climbing, dancing – whatever it may be. I danced and trained all over the world, primarily with Royal Academy of Dance – ballet, in New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Switzerland, and London competing in world competitions. At 18yrs (way back when) I landed my first professional job in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical: Cats that lead to a career in Musical Theatre for 12 years, Chicago being my last show. I meet Tracey Mallett (creator of bootybarre, and co-owner of ATP) during these years of performance and travel – we have remained sisters virtually ever since. Pilates or Body Control, as it was called back then “injury rehabilitation” for when we had pulled or over worked our body. It felt like punishment but as we all know it is all about alignment, functional mechanics and full range of movement – so here I am today, loving that I get to help people find the love of their body and enjoy freedom of movement. Nothing feels better – it is “magical”.
