MARIA

Intense, full of energy, and ready to push for one more mile, Maria went

from gym avoider to gym lover with the help of indoor cycling. She saw

the benefits and decided to help others and went for her indoor cycling

certification through Keiser and NETA.

 

Maria creates a fun, high-energy, challenging workout; she is passionate

about great music and seeing her riders grow physically and emotionally

right before her eyes.

 

A 2006 Graduate of the University of Minnesota, Maria is not only

passionate with indoor cycling. She also loves reality TV, her puppy, and

trying to do things she never thought she could (most notably Tough

Mudder).

 

Maria’s rides welcome all age and fitness levels. She firmly believes that,

once you push past the “I cant’s”, you will leave her class feeling like you

(and your body!) can do anything.

ZION

Seven years ago, Zion’s BFF dragged her to her first indoor cycling class at

a local gym. Her experience was challenging, sweaty, transformative and

therapeutic — she was hooked!

Zion hails from the Bay Area, and earned her Spinning® Certification from

Mad Dogg Athletics. She may have left her heart in San Francisco, but

found her love for indoor cycling here in the Twin Cities.

Her energy and great mix of music combine to create a challenging but

spirited workout that will have riders always pushing themselves to the

next level. When she is not leading clients through the best 60 minutes of

their day at Surge Cycling, she is in her kitchen, playing with new recipes

or streaming Netflix movies.

JON

Jon brings his creative side to Surge Cycling. He experienced his first indoor cycling class a few years ago and his love and organic connection to the bike had him hooked! Around the 300-pound mark, he decided it was time to make a life change and indoor cycling became his primary vehicle for success. Now almost 100 pounds later he’s excited to share his enthusiasm with like-minded fitness finatics who are seeking a butt-kicking workout.

 

Jon's motivational coaching and wild arsenal of tunes push riders to their physical and mental edge. He understands that riders might be at a differ- ent level, but as a community, we can gradually push our limits to see the growth and transformation we desire. Jon has a unique ear for music and his infectious energy will guide you like only he can.

Kicking club beats and rowdy rock n’ roll are his signature sounds and they add up to the fastest indoor bike ride you’ll ever have.
