Meet The Team
Running 8 marathons and working in construction has taken its toll on my hips and joints. Cycle Evolution offered a low impact way to obtain my fitness goals, while providing an outdoor cycling experience in a safe, weather controlled environment.
After participating in over 300 Real Ryder classes, it was suggested that I become Real Ryder certified, and I am so glad I did! I combine my passion for cycling with my love of music to provide a ryde that’s both fun and challenging. Be prepared for a ryde that will move you! See you at the studio.
Amy Elliott started riding on a whim one summer day in 2017, and she has been riding to the beat ever since. When she isn’t leading classes to the carefully curated playlists of throwback ‘90s hip-hop and catchy pop tunes, Amy plays Mom to two spunky little ladies. She doesn’t only cycle in East Islip she grew up just down the block and teaches elementary school right here in town. Amy understands how hard it can feel to make time for yourself sometimes, but firmly believes that it’s important to take care of yourself and find the joy in your everyday life.
My passion for fitness, health and nutrition has always been a priority. Being a professional private chef for the last 15 years has covered the nutrition aspect. But I wanted to step up my fitness game. When I started indoor cycling it was to change up my usual routine of working out at home with insanity of running. I found a place that was comfortable, non-judgemental, and encouraging. The staff and my fellow cyclers embrace each other and build each other up to make you want to push yourself a little further than you thought you could. I began to attend classes almost daily and loved every second. My desire to better myself in my newest passion led to me wanting to push myself to another level and be a bigger part of a community that is now like another family. To be able to teach now all that I have learned so far is a significant thing for me and I’m very excited to go from student to instructor.
I am a dedicated rider turned instructor with about 5 years of experience teaching as a RealRyder certified instructor. I can't believe that I waited so long to try indoor cycling. I originally started indoor cycling to cross train when too much running was taking a toll on my knees. And to my delight at Cycle Evolution I not only found a community (family now) of riders I could relate to, but a whole new approach to a healthy well-rounded lifestyle for both body and mind. I believe in the importance of taking time to do something good for yourself.. RealRyder indoor cycling is something I will never ever do without...Oh and don't expect to sit.. when you come to my cycling class!! Get the experience of riding a RealRyder and you'll be addicted too!!!
