Dawn teaches spin and total body conditioning at Pedal Wild. She also has experience in aerobics, Reebok step, yoga and kick-boxing.
Being new to the area, I was interested in finding some early morning classes that were close to home. A co-worker and neighbor told me that I should check out studio Pedal Wild so I thought I would give it a shot. I took one class and was hooked!
In a regular spin class you get a break when you stand up and pedal - but not with the bikes at Pedal Wild. The workout becomes more intense when you stand up because you have to control the moving handlebars. When you sit down and take a turn and lean you are fully engaging your core and using your arms: shoulders, pecs, biceps and even triceps! I couldn’t wait to get to my next class!
My philosophy is you only get one chance a day to work out, unless it’s a double header, so it better be good! I have been teaching Group Fitness classes for 24 years. Working out is my passion and I love teaching at Pedal Wild. I also enjoy teaching Bootcamp classes, Step classes (I am a tried and true step junkie!), strength and cardio classes. I enjoy running– it’s such a great social sport. I have run many half marathons, 5ks, 10ks and the Twin Cities marathon -twice. My family has enjoyed biking along some of the great trails in the area and I hope to get more into this great outdoor sport and aspire to try out a race or two.

Graphic Designer for Pedal Wild
I started Gecko Graphics in March of 1999, a childhood dream to own my own design firm! It's been extremely fun and rewarding, creating all sorts of unique projects for clients. Anything from brochures, web sites, logos, email blasts and trade show materials, to flyers, postcards, online marketing and so much more. There is a good challenge daily and I love it.
When I began my journey with Pedal Wild, Todd and I saw a need for each other; me for my fitness, and Todd for his marketing! It was a match! We've partnered ever since. I can't say enough good things about Pedal Wild and what it has done for my health. I have a stronger body, better endurance, and a greater drive for fitness all together.
