Over the summer we introduced some hot new instructors, Brittani, Virginia and Caitlin, who have fit right in with the WiO team. And now as the leaves begin to fall and the season changes, we have also turned a new leaf with our new Fall/Winter Schedule and with the addition of some fab new instructors! We just hosted our Fall Open Call last month and found three new faces to add to the ever-growing team. We're so excited to have Tirrell, Stephanie and Cassie joining us! Just like the rest of the team, these three have endured our WiO instructor training program -- learning all about our studios, classes and overall community. They put together some awesome demos for our management team, trained with seasoned instructors and joined along side you in our classes.
So without further adieu, meet Tirrell, Stephanie and Cassie!
Tirrell has two passions, hair and fitness. Fitness is something that has always seemed to be around; from competitive swimming at age 8, to multiple biathlon races before the age of 13, and dance as a teen. It wasn’t until college that he realized his love of hair styling and how well it worked together with fitness. He started teaching body sculpt classes in Atlanta and loved the energy of the music coupled with continuos movement of the body. He enjoys motivating people to take control of their lives whether it be through a dedicated exercise regimen or trying something new with your hair.
Currently, Tirrell lives in Brooklyn and works at a salon in the East Village. Taking full advantage of the land of opportunity, he is on his way to becoming the fitness/hair guru he’s destined to be. Tirrell is the guy who will get you to do that one last rep or push your resistance up just a bit more. With eclectic music and high energy you’ll definitely have the best time working out you never knew you could have. Join Tirrell for our Monday morning Go Mommy classes at River at 9:15am and 10:15am - and for back-to-back Naked Ride's on Saturdays at River at 12:15pm and 1:15pm.
Stephanie discovered her passion for indoor cycling after a running injury led her to try new low-impact workouts. She fell in love with the energy, emphasis on setting personal challenges, and sweat factor! She brings an eclectic mix of music to her classes including hip hop, reggae, dance, rock and roll, and some international flare inspired by her dual French-American nationality. Along with being a certified SPINNING® instructor from Mad Dogg Athletics, Steph is also a Certified Health Coach who believes there is always time to prioritize health despite our hectic schedules. Having worked for 7+ Years in Corporate America, she understands the meaning of busy schedules! Her energy and positive attitude will push you to challenge yourself to the fullest! Push yourself to the next level with Stephanie in her Riding High classes at Willow on Monday/Wednesday at 7:15am and Saturdays at 9:30am & 10:30am. Kick off your weekend with her Naked Ride at 6:30pm every Friday at Willow!
Cassie holds an Ed.M. in Dance Education from Rutgers University and a B.F.A. in Dance Performance from Arizona State University. She currently teaches dance full time at a high school. Cassie dances with a contemporary ballet company in New York City and can also be found doing various other dance projects in the area. She is so happy to be teaching fitness at WiO and spreading her love for dance and exercise, so come and meet her at the “barre” for a killer workout! Wake up early with Cassie for CandyBarre at a new time, Wednesdays at 5:50am - or meet her at the barre on Thursdays at 7:45pm.
