After training as a PT, to add another string to her bow - alongside the day job of being a journalist - Sam decided to specialise in spin. As a GB Age Group duathlete and triathlete and avid cyclist, Sam likes to bring real world bike training into the spin room. Pumping tunes – including the odd rude track and cheeseball tune that is sure to get stuck in your head – coupled with cycle specific efforts and a 'work hard, play hard' attitude are what Sam likes to bring to her classes. Be prepared to smile, sweat and internally chant “shut up legs"!
How does Gymbox as a brand reflect your personality?
Gymbox is about serious training in a fun and fulfilling way. It's about enjoying the hard work and getting a buzz from it, then coming out of the gym wanting to go back in and bring your mates with you. That is exactly my approach to life: work hard, enjoy what you do, share the benefits and inspire. Me and Gymbox, we get each other. True love.
What music style describes you?
Eclectic. From cheeseball 80s and 90s classics, to dance, rock, classic - you name it, it's probably on my iPod. I like to surprise.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Putting things like The Proclaimers, Jedward and Vanilla Ice in my classes so that class members end up accidentally singing them at their desks.
What is your favourite thing about Gymbox?
That it is completely non-judgmental.
Who is your favourite rockstar?
Can I say The Proclaimers ...?
