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!
I am a RN at Putnam Co Health Dept. I am married to Neal and we have 3 kids.We love sports! We love to watch our children play and coach. It makes me proud to watch my kids exercise their bodies and encourage others. I love the feeling I get from exercise. I can not wait to help encourage others threw this journey. We can keep each other held accountable!
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!
