Are you ready to take your spin workouts to a whole new level? Look no further than MINT, where we’re thrilled to introduce our newest cycle instructor, Bridget Murdoch. With her passion for fitness and infectious energy, Bridget is set to bring a unique and exhilarating experience to your indoor cycling sessions.
Bridget’s journey as a fitness instructor began in high school when she started attending spin classes with her parents at a local studio. Inspired by the energetic atmosphere and the sense of community, she soon found herself teaching the studio’s “Teen Spin” rides geared towards younger participants. Since then, Bridget has been honing her teaching skills and sharing her love for group fitness with riders of all ages.
So, what drove Bridget to become a fitness instructor? As a lifelong athlete and former college volleyball player, she thrives on the camaraderie and teamwork that group fitness provides. With her big personality and enthusiasm for motivating others, teaching fitness classes was a natural fit for Bridget.
When you attend one of Bridget’s classes, you can expect a teaching style that is all about the fun factor. She brings the energy of a dance party to the cycling studio, incorporating elements like dancing, singing, and even imagining yourself in a music video or at a concert. Her carefully curated playlists feature dance EDM and pop tracks with upbeat choruses that keep you engaged and motivated throughout the ride. You won’t just be spinning; you’ll be experiencing a full-on adrenaline-fueled adventure.
While Bridget’s specialty lies in indoor cycling, she has also taught a mixed martial arts and kickboxing class, showcasing her versatility as an instructor. Whether you’re looking for a heart-pumping cycling workout or a high-intensity martial arts session, Bridget has the expertise to guide you toward your fitness goals.
For those who are new to spin, Bridget offers some valuable advice. Arriving early to class is essential to ensure you get a proper bike setup and learn the fundamentals of riding with good form. Once you’re ready to go, Bridget’s top tip is to challenge yourself with resistance. While riding quickly with minimal resistance may be tempting, the real gains in strength and endurance come from pushing yourself with heavier wheels and incorporating seated climbs into your workout.
When she’s not leading exhilarating spin classes, Bridget enjoys spending time outdoors in Washington, D.C. One of her favorite activities is taking leisurely walks in Rock Creek or gathering with friends for a relaxing picnic in the park. It’s all about balance and enjoying the vibrant city she calls home.
Beyond her work at MINT and her passion for fitness, Bridget has built a successful career in Recruiting and People Strategy for high-growth tech startups. You can find her on LinkedIn if you’re interested in connecting with her for consulting or project-based work.
