As an indoor volleyball player and coach, Michael has been around gyms his whole life. Fourteen years ago on a dare he signed up to compete in a triathlon, and within the first couple months of owning a road bike, he set out on a 8 day/700 mile ride from Portland, Oregon to San Francisco. After taking his first indoor cycling class he was hooked. Michael likes to bring the outdoors in, where his classes mimic outdoor riding. His music is a blend of multiple genres including funk, soul, rock, electronic dance, indie pop and RnB.
