Hi, my name is Iva.  I am the lead instructor and owner of Spin City Studio.  My passion about fitness started at a young age due to being overweight as a child.  I decided weight was not going to hold me back in life.  My moto is you have to feel good about yourself before you can love yourself.  I was always looking for new ways to make working out fun.  That's when I found Spin which sparked after my first ride!  It was love at first ride!  

When you ride with me, expect to find a new you.  You will find a fire inside of you, that you never knew you had.

An Atlanta native, I moved to Sparta, Tn a few years ago to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city and live in the countryside on a cattle farm. I inspires confidence in each and every rider to step out of their comfort zone and into their courage zone.  I will not stop until everyone understands they can become the best version of themselves with every pedal stoke. During class you will hear Eclectic energetic music. Nobody is left behind!

Fitness has always been a favorite hobby of mine. When I was introduced to spin, I quickly realized how much fun cardio could be! I enjoy being able to guide friends and family to a happier and healthier lifestyle. Can't wait to have fun with all of you!

After growing up in North Carolina, I started to bounce around.  First stop was Los Angeles where I took my first spin class.  I walked in thinking it would be a one time thing, but wow... what a good playlist can do.  I loved it.  I got certified later on to teach at FlyWheel, moved to Washington DC and then to Seattle.  Last September, my boyfriend Zach and I decided to come live in Cookeville where our best friends had been living for 6 years.  I'm SO GLAD to have found Spin City and all the people that make it great!
