CYCLE INSTRUCTOR
TRACY NEWMAN

TEACHES AT:

Canton

TEACHING STYLE:

Let’s face it, working out is hard. I try to mix the hard work with a little humor, some fun and some good music—it usually makes the time go by faster. As I always tell my classes “smiling burns more calories.” I will push you to go outside your comfort zone but I will always do it with a smile.

FAVORITE SONG:

This is such a hard choice because I LOVE all music, which seems appropriate for a spin instructor, right? If I were in the car and a song came on that REQUIRED me to turn it up on blast … that song would be “Devil Went Down To Georgia.” It was one of my dad’s favorites and it always makes me smile to think of him singing it with me.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TRACY

I’m from New York (sorry, Orioles fans) and I have been teaching for nearly six years. I would have never imagined that I would move from the crowd to the stage of a group fitness class but the experience has been amazing. I’m addicted to coffee and 90’s hip hop and boy band music. And after living in Canton for seven wonderful years, I now live in Mt. Washington with my boyfriend, Jason, and our two dogs, Zimmer and Maris (named after Yankees). I’ve completed 5 marathons and a bunch of halfs and smaller races—and while I don’t think of myself as a runner, I do believe in the saying that “The expert in anything was once a beginner.” Bottom line, we all have to start somewhere.
