Author of the popular blog Spintastic http://spintastic.blogspot.com dedicated to applications of cycling training to improving “life off the bike,” Melissa approaches indoor cycling instruction the same way she approaches medicine: educating and empowering people to make their own choices to enhance their wellness, mindfulness, and self-efficacy in a way that is consistent with their goals and values. Her current research focus includes the psychological effects of heart rate training, and heart rate training for anxiety management. You can read all of Melissa’s articles here.
