Amanda Stafford

Being active is a lifestyle for me and is as much a benefit for my mind and spirit as for my body. I love being part of a studio that motivates and supports people of all fitness levels to take the time to take care for themselves and get their blood flowing. Being the mother of three sons, exercise and the community at the Shack has kept me sane ( well, somewhat) and I am thrilled to be part of the amazing team and space.

Lainie S. Quirk

Lainie originates from Los Angeles, the “birthplace” of spinning, where in the early 90’s she took one of Johnny G’s first public classes and was totally hooked.  An avid spinner as a student for the music, camaraderie and weight loss results, Lainie became certified in 2006, 6 months after the birth of her second child. She managed a small 11 bike studio in the East Mountains for four years and the studio continues on, now managed by her former students.

A resident of Nob Hill and Co-Founder of Nob Hill’s AFME, The Albuquerque Film & Media Experience, she enjoys riding both as a student and instructor to keep her energy and fitness levels up and to handle the demanding hours the film industry warrants.  You may never know who may show up in her classes riding along side of you.

MG McCullough

MG started indoor cycling following a sports injury in 2006, but it wasn’t until she lived in Los Angeles that she really fell in love. There, she was inspired by motivating instructors who created an experience in the studio, believed everyone could improve their health & fitness, & brought DJ-quality playlists to the workout. This is what you can expect when you come to MG’s classes–lots of smiles, lots of energy,  & lots of encouragement to “get after it” & “go big”, regardless of your fitness level.

MG is a student in the Doctor of Oriental Medicine program at Southwest Acupuncture College; she believes exercise & diet are the best medicine & plans to practice Family & Sports Medicine.  She is mildly obsessed with endurance events, cosmetics, & the proper use of punctuation. She is Schwinn certified.

“I have been racing bikes for over 25 years & teaching indoor cycling classes the last 4. Last year I was lucky enough to get the chance to race on the Asian tour for Team Garmin/Watts based out of Seoul, S. Korea. It was a life changing experience & can’t wait to pass on some of the training tips & tools I learned from some of the best in the business.  I have been using the indoor bikes personally for roughly 12yrs & found it increased my power & overall mental toughness out on the road as well as other sports.
As many of you have heard, I will be coaching an 8 week Lactic Threshold Training Camp starting Tuesday Aug. 27th @ 6pm along with a few other classes. After 6 sessions of doing these camps, all I ask of you is to show up ready to have a great time, open your minds & leave “I can’t” outside on the sidewalk before you come through the door…because you can!”

She now volunteers for the Ladakhi Nun Foundation, building websites for nunneries that hope to find sponsors and offer meditation instruction to Westerners.
