CYKL welcomes Kara Foley to the team! We’re excited to have Kara take over Saturdays at 8am! Here’s an interview so you can get to know a little bit more about Kara and what inspires her and her awesome classes!

CYKL: Who’s Kara Foley?

Kara: An adventurer who loves to laugh and break a solid sweat cycling, rock climbing, cross country skiing, and yoga-ing. I’m also a physiotherapist.  I am 90% an anatomy nerd who loves showing people their strength needed to reach all their goals.

CYKL: What are some of your health and fitness goals for 2012?

Kara: I have 2 goals for 2012, goal #1 is to get more comfortable hitting 40km/hr + speeds on my new roadie and goal #2 is getting my lead climbing certification, so that I can expand my outdoor climbing beyond bouldering.

John, cranking it out on the bike!

John Thompson

Goal: South Beach Triathlon
