This Sunday we are finally going to announce our amazing stRIDE instructor lineup. We are so excited to share who these amazing women are and even more excited to have them show you what they are capable of in the studio. Until then, we have been highlighting our two most inspirational stRIDE instructors, stRIDE’s co-owners Tori DeSimone and Jess Borzelleca-Vierow. They are the foundation of stRIDE and have developed the philosophy of the studio and what each of our future instructors and clients will embody starting on August 4th.
We started by asking Jess a few questions to get to know her a little bit better.
When did you start your fitness journey?
I have always been into fitness and sports since I was a very young child. I played multiple sports in middle school/high school and Field Hockey at the NCAA Division I collegiate level. I began coaching sports teams (lacrosse and field hockey) at the age of 19 for a few years and fell in love with spin shortly after! I am now a two year AAAI certified spin instructor!
What is your favorite way to sweat?
I absolutely adore sweating in a group setting, specifically spin and box. There is something so special about that dark room with a class all working together as one dripping in sweat!!!
What or who inspires you the most?
Some people are always so eager to answer a question like this right away with a person other than themselves. When I feel that the most important thing to inspire you is your own motivation and your own inner passion. What inspires me is my future self. Who I want to be and who I will become. Always striving to be a better version of me. For myself. For my family. For my clients.
What is the best piece of advice you can give to stRIDE clients?
The most important person in your journey is always YOU. Never give up on yourself! You may have doubts and fears but you will always overcome anything put in your way! I want you walking out of that room feeling like you can conquer the world! And guess what?? YOU CAN!! Your thoughts become things. So believe you can and you will!
What does stRIDE mean to you?
stRIDE is my everything! To bring the passion and drive inside of me to everyone in the community and share with them all is the reason behind it all! Our goal is to motivate every single person who steps foot into our studio and for them to forever feel welcomed, loved and a part of our stRIDE family!
Are you getting excited? You can start booking classes with Jess on July 15th for stRIDE’s August 4th opening.
We CANNOT wait to sweat with you.
