    Mike Briody's Spin 60 is an amazing class! The workout is intense, his play lists are the best and just when you think you can do no more, another great song comes on to motivate you to keep on going. The hour flies by and you leave class drenched and feeling great because you know you just burned tons of calories!

    Mike has ignited my fitness addiction! His guidance has intensified my strength, stamina and spin. Mike’s positive attitude is contagious and I have accomplished so much physically through his challenging workouts and consistent motivation. I am inspired at Mike’s ability to bring out the best in each person he coaches, no matter the age, gender or physical ability; we each leave his class as a stronger athlete. I feel more powerful inside the gym and out. Thanks Mike for believing in me and teaching me to believe in myself! C. Craig
