Ari has been teaching and running indoor cycling studios all over the world for several years; beginning her career in NYC, taking an international teaching position in Singapore, and most recently bringing her big city energy to Sarasota, FL. As RIDE’s owner, it is her number one goal to not only help riders reach their highest potential through physical and emotional connection, but also her own. She wants to see every rider walk out of their ride feeling even stronger then when they walked in by creating a very strong sense of community. Heavy, motivating beats, followed by breathless moments that challenge your mind, are what make RIDE’s with Ari less of a class, and more of an experience!

Amanda has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years, mostly focusing on managing large gyms and boutique fitness studios.
