CYKL did a call-out for your story back in October! Thanks to Jessica for submitting this inspiring and amazing CYKL Success Story!

Jessica’s CYKL Success Story!

I walked into CYKL in the spring of this year nervous and wondering what the heck I was doing coming to a place that was so far “out of my league”. After all, I’m a dancer, not a cyclist and truth be told, I was VERY, VERY afraid of riding a bike, much less a stationary bike that you could (in my mind) fall off of from tilting it side to side. Who goes to a place like this and what was I doing??? But, my physiotherapist had recommended I include spinning in my exercise regimen since I wasn’t dancing that much due to a debilitating ankle sprain in 2010 that left me unable to dance, run and even walk for a lot of that year. Moreover, I wanted get my fitness level back up to where I was before the injury and so… I found myself at CYKL- enticed by the RealRyder bikes, the so-hip-it-hurts studio and the tagline “Real Fit, Real Fast”. And after that first day in April when I took Jen’s Top 40 Ride (and didn’t fall off the bike! YES!!), I knew that not only was I most definitely “in my league” but that I had found a community here of like-minded individuals who were passionate about getting and being healthy whilst having fun doing it.

In the weeks and months after joining CYKL, I noticed changes in my body- suddenly I had delts!! My quads were poppin’!! I had stamina and endurance to survive Jen’s AND John’s Saturday morning classes!! WHOA!!! However, what was even more thrilling was this incredible boldness becoming apparent within me… I was conquering worries and doubts that formerly held me back from achieving things I really wanted to do. I found myself dusting off my running shoes to take another stab at the half in spite of my apprehension to return to the sport in which I had sustained my injury. The ambition and passion of the instructors I encountered in my first few months at CYKL were contagious whether it was Krista training for her half-marathon, Jen winning at the Muskoka Duatholon or Andrea’s epic Ultraman adventure.
