Claire Beeuwkes

Cycle

Originally from New England, and a varsity athlete throughout high school and college, Claire took her first spin class eight years ago while living in Santiago, Chile. Although she could barely understand what the instructor was saying – the music and energy was amazing, and soon she was attending class daily, improving her Spanish, giving her knees a break from running, and connecting with other students and instructors. Best of all it’s like rowing and running – only have to go fast in one direction – helpful for those of us who lack hand-eye coordination. A year ago, Claire started spinning again regularly in D.C., and was motivated to get certified through Mad Dogg Athletics in 2016. She loves the community that indoor cycling creates, and motivating riders with upbeat music, challenging climbs, lots of energy, and strong encouragement. Follow her on Instagram: @kcbeefit
