Fox Cycling Online Instructor: Shona
Shona: Hi, I'm a mum to one daughter, Martha, aged 6 and two step children, Oli aged 8 and Lizzy aged 6 and recently married to Kirk. My main job is a lawyer, but my passion has always been in fitness and I qualified as an Indoor Cycling Instructor in December 2013 and wish I had done it years ago. I've worked with Steve at Fox Cycling since February 2014 and fully recognise my passion and strengths for helping people achieve goals and increase confidence on the bike.
Fox: Thanks for that Shona. How would you describe your instructing style?
Shona: My style is energetic and fun - and I was recently described by a Fox member as 'awesomely awesome' which I think is a great achievement.
Fox: It certainly is, our members are very discerning people! What is it, do you think, that you're most keen for people to get from your classes?
Shona: That indoor cycling is not scary and it is actually a fun way to get fit.
Fox: Is there anyone in particular you'd like to have in one of your sessions?
Shona: Dave Grohl, because he's raised my heart rate a few times, so it's time I repaid the favour!
Fox: Well that's as good a reason as any, I guess! What else do you like doing?
Shona: I enjoy going on family bike rides, now that the children can all ride bikes; and exploring Cornwall in particular that way.
Fox: Anything in particular that rubs you up the wrong way?
Shona: Disrespectful drivers and bullies.
Fox: And how about you tell us something people don't know about you?
Shona: I had heart surgery in 2007 and now have an implant in my heart, but this has never held back my fitness and I'm fitter now than ever!
