One of our awesome spin instructors, Deirdre is one of the most bad-ass people we have on staff. She grew up with a longtime focus on athletics and sports of all varieties, so it should be no surprise she through her lot in with BFit. She started taking aerobics classes with her mom at 14, neon wool leg warmers and all, and it’s only been uphill from there. That in mind, it is no surprise she got hooked on group fitness as a teenager. That love, combined with a passion for any sort of outdoor athletics, has helped D foster a lifelong and meaningful relationship with exercise. She took her first spin class in LA with Johnny G, and it was meant to be, because she has never looked back. She loves the intense cardio that spinning brings, and cycling has become her go to exercise, both indoors and out. When not at the gym, D works running multiple retail stores, and plots her path to world domination! She started teaching Spin specifically in LA in 2000, and hasn’t stopped yet. Her style has evolved, but she has always believed that the music is as important as the routine. So come check out what makes D so dope today!

She was born an artist, and despite feeling deeply at home with her pencils and paints, she is also a rebel. At a young age she stretched well outside of her comfort zone to become a competitive volleyball player who cross trains with Ironman’s, beach style ping pong, racquetball, and pretty much everything with movement but wrestling, despite her youngest sons insistence that it’s worth it. A mother of 2 sons and three cats, Jessica may be a Boulder Native, but her soul is at the sea. She has been stung by a stingray, and her superpowers are going to kick in any day now, she can feel it.

You can catch her listening to everything from: Goth, EBM, Synth Pop, Brazilian, Blues and Afro-Punk Beats. She loves chips and guac. She loves wearing dresses with her Doc Martins.
