She enjoys the connection with participants, and more importantly when they share their goals and achievements with her. April’s goal is to bring every member back for more and to continue the journey together to overall success and fitness.
Diane Benedetto - Noon Session
Diane has been a cycling instructor at Elevate Fitness in Syracuse, NY for over 5 years. She was initially certified in the MOSSA RIDE program and then became certified in the SPINNING program. What does that mean to you? YOU GET AWESOMENESS IN AN INSTRUCTOR (did you feel her personality there??)!!
Diane became an instructor not only because she loves to ride, but because fitness journeys are important, starting with her own and then learning of others’…and each person’s is different, which is the beauty of learning about them! If Diane can help someone integrate routine exercise into their journey, her role is validated.
Exercise and fitness journeys are very mental, which is why Diane is committed to helping people understand more about themselves and how they can push themselves without injury! Music motivates her, so the right mix of music for cycling is important for an awesome experience. What does she like? Anything but country (ok, she is loosening that up a bit these days…)! Diane loves to sing along while she teaches, and she loves a great cadence… her specialty is climbing, and her classes lean heavily towards that…but there is always a sprinkle of sprints and flats in my classes!
Diane is honored to be an instructor for P4P and has been since its inception! Giving back to the community is important and if this is how she can help others fund raise for eradicating childhood cancers, then “her job is done”.
