After being encouraged by a personal trainer to try a Spin Class, Ruth instantly fell in love with it. In addition to being a convenient location with the feel of a small community, it was the Spin Classes at Fitness Crossroad that lead her and her husband to become members in 2012. When the opportunity arose in the summer of 2015 to take the Mad Dogg Spinning Certification, Ruth decided to go for it. She has been teaching Spin at Fitness Crossroad since then. She knows that people are taking time out of their busy day to come in to the gym, so Ruth puts a lot of thought into each workout, with the goal for each class to be positive, energetic, fun and challenging. Ruth loves that anyone can Spin, regardless of their fitness level and she encourages everyone she can to try it at least once. Ruth lives in St.Anthony with her husband and Miniature Schnauzer. She is an avid baker and loves to grill, hike in the mountains and travel.
