Spin Class


This class is taught by:

Erika Levesque

Erika has been a biking and exercise enthusiast from a young age. Riding her banana handle bar bike around her driveway as a child gave her the fundamentals to eventually bike from DC to San Francisco in her 20s. Combined with her cross country running skills, Erika eventually took up adventure racing and completed two Olympic distance triathlons. She now shares her love for sports with others while in the saddle at Spinback Indoory Cycling.

Kelly Olver

Kelly's love for sports started at a young age – Dancing, running athletic races and cross country, water skiing and being a fierce Wing Attack Netball player in NZ from age 11. Her sport CV is as impressive as her big smile and “ready to rock and roll” 6am morning mood! It’s a solid sweat session you are about to experience.
When she’s not on the bikes, or out running the streets, Kelly is quite the foodie enjoying cooking, discovering the restaurants of Shanghai, traveling (to discover more foods of the world, or the best beaches to get a good tan). Join Kelly on the bikes for an early morning calories burning, heart thumping Spin class!

Jennafer Martinez

Simply one of the nicest human beings you could possibly meet...until you do her class that is...Jennafer likes speed!!! In a recent CERN study, it was found that Jennafer's acceleration is faster than both Higgs and Bosun combined, with time to spare for a great big smile at the finish-line. A real all-rounder who can't get enough of high-intensity training, be it kickboxing, gym and so on...Match this up with a highly varied and always impeccable music selection and the 50 minutes fly by (faster than an F15 fighter pilot who's left the oven on). Serious calorie-burners!!

Eleanor Prescott

Meet Eleanor, who discovered the holy grail of spinning after one too many long distance runs which led to creaky joints. Now a certified addict, Eleanor enjoys the whole range of spinning classes; from max power interval sessions to dance party sweat sessions. She is serious about fitness and health, though equally dedicated to enjoying all of life's guilty pleasures including an annual Ibiza pilgrimage.

Eleanor’s sessions at Spinback are built around the playlist - classic house and dance mixed with current tunes brought together in a varied workout that will include hills, flats, jumps, and high intensity sprints. But most importantly, when you workout on the bikes with her, it’ll be fun. And challenging, ensuring you keep coming back for more!

Join one of Eleanor’s classes which cater to new or seasoned spinners, and you’ll be guaranteed to get a great workout matched to the perfect playlist!

Abby Nesseth

Meet Abby, originally from rural Minnesota in the United States she has been living in Shanghai for the past 9 years. For Abby, spinning and Shanghai came hand in hand after meeting Spinback’s Jenn Martinez who is known for her awesome ability to put playlists and music videos to match together. One class, and Abby was hooked, not least that Spinback came highly recommended to her as a spinning studio amongst the Shanghai and fitness community.

A fitness enthusiast for as long as she can remember, she has taken this passion to the people and is a certified RKC level 1 kettelbell instructor as well as an ACE certified personal trainer, and has now extended that passion to the Spinback studios where we welcome her as one of our newest instructors!

Being on the bikes allows the competitor in Abby to motivate not only herself, but others, which ensures you a great workout each and every time. Coupled with the performance metrics used in the Spinback studios, there’s nothing more she loves than pushing through a heavy hill climb and watching her watts skyrocket.

Abby strongly believes that exercise should be fun, and encourages all of those training with her to get involved, get fit, and become their best when on the bikes!

When she’s not spinning, swinging a kettlebell or swamped with grad school, Abby loves checking out Shanghai’s latest hot spots and is always on a quest to find the best quesadilla, and failing that, binge-watches real-life crime documentaries.

LET THE RHYTHM TAKE CONTROL! Roger likes to switch between different music styles and different workouts but most important is “the beat”, the beat is your friend. Especially when we are going fast, but also in that crazy climb that make your wheel glow in the dark.
