Cycle


This class is taught by:

Zach Fiocca

Zach discovered cycling as a bike messenger in Chicago while getting his degree in Sociology at DePaul University. Drawn to "messing" because he could ride all day and listen to music, Zach quickly gravitated towards messenger races known as Alley Cats. He has won numerous messenger events all over the US and Canada including "The Tour Da Chicago," "C.A.M.P," "The Brick Layer," "The 'Stuper' Bowl," "The Cuttin' Crew Classic," and the prestigious "North American Cycle Courier Championships." Eventually Zach got into sanctioned racing and raced full-time road, track, and Cyclocross seasons. As a Cat 1 racer, he has placed in the top 10 at NRC races and won many local/regional races in the Midwest, Southern California, and Texas. As the"Texas Road Race State Champion" and a frequent overall podium finisher and consistent age group winner in 2013/14 Duathlon and Triathlon races, Spin has always been a significant part of his training and enjoyment of cycling.

Music has also held a prominent role: Zach grew up playing drums and experienced being a percussionist in various bands, traveling the US and recording. His spin classes are known for their exceptional music selection, including the music itself as well as the unique mixes he creates. Additionally, teaching continues to be a theme that has played out in fitness as well as community. Zach taught elementary school students as well as provided therapy and education to children with Asperger's Syndrome.
 
These experiences and passions have come together in his career as a fitness instructor. Zach began teaching Spin in 1999 and continues to enjoy it today. He loves making mixes and sharing music, workouts and energy. At this point, Zach is focused on Group Fitness, surfing, and having his creative itch scratched by making mixes and routines for classes. The introduction of video into his classes has him psyched, and he is excited to share this underutilized and new school element at Cycology. Zach's older sister Juli is a consistent inspiration for him, and races Ironman for Team Timex out of Austin.
 
Let's ride!

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Jeannine came to San Diego by way of Los Angeles, where she began her career in fitness, health and wellness. Jeannine's early training in Indoor Cycling and Yoga included an extensive, hands-on apprenticeship with former professional triathlete and Nike Spokesperson, celebrity trainer, Kimberly Fowler. The intense training of those initial certification courses taught Jeannine not only the athletic fundamentals of those particular disciplines, but also ignited a passion for fitness instruction of all varieties. She developed this passion, as well as her experience and expertise, at the Beverly Hills Country Club, where she also became an NASM Certified Personal Trainer. Her work with a Beverly Hills cycling team led to a job as a professor at the University of San Diego, where she taught the university's first credited cycling class. Most recently adding Pilates and Barre to her fitness repertoire, Jeannine's unique combination of certifications and training have enhanced and honed her skills as a trainer and instructor for students of all levels.
