Mother of two, Angelica Lee, discovered her passion for spin through a search for self-care coupled with an unstoppable drive. After moving to Portland, Oregon, Ang joined a new Crossfit gym which had just opened a spin studio right next door. She began working at the front desk and before long she was totally hooked on spin. With the support of her husband, as well as her intense focus and energy, she became a spin instructor, and hasn’t looked back since.
Take it at your pace! Don’t have to listen to my cues! It can be overwhelming, but screw it – have so much fun!
Pilates on the reformer (Megaburn fitness) and paddleboarding with the family! Also I love my friends, wine, and cuddling with my dog.
Gratitude is the only way to survive and grow.
My mom. She passed away from stage 4 cancer 5 years ago when she was 51. My family has a history of non-existent exercise, and bad eating habits. I am trying to revert that rhythm and reflect a better way of life for my children. Also, I am a POC (person of color) and I want to represent that in the community and represent the idea that every color can flourish in the fitness industry!!
TIEM SHOES DUHHH and high waisted tights!
A big thanks to to Spotify’s weekly “release radar” playlist. Woop woop!
I had a hole in my crotch area… while I had my time of the month… you can imagine… I use tampons… the freaking string was hanging out! I found out when I saw myself stretching at the end! I obviously ended stretching abruptly.
Dance drills, jumps and sprints!
Let’s chisel out your mental toughness right now. You need to face this struggle in order for you to grow. F*ck the doubt, lies, setbacks! Get after it, fight through it and rise above it!!!
Confidence. My confidence has grown from teaching.I am such a type A. I started out pretty good, but what destroyed me at first was the online reviews I’d get from my classes. Some definitely hurt me and made me feel insecure and doubtful of my role. I’ve managed it by reminding myself to re-orient my spirit towards gratitude. Every negative review I saw as an opportunity to make adjustments, remind myself to not take it personally and be grateful that I am able to bring light into whichever rider comes through the studio!
