Lena is the Founder/Owner of VERVE Studios. Her vision for VERVE is to create a local fitness  community for sweat, music, and connection – a place to transform your day and elevate your life!

Lena leads her riders to get aligned in breath, movement, and energy! She empowers you to stay present in every moment of class and really tune into the music and the feeling you get when you ride. Her goal is for you to embrace being vulnerable, lean into discomfort, and break through the thoughts and fears that get in the way from becoming the athlete and person you want to be. Lena wants you to show up and own who you are on and off the bike. She does it all with whole-hearted joy, accidental humor, more than occasional theatrics, and the power of Celine Dion.

Lena has been a fitness trainer for close to 10 years in New York, Boston, and Southern California, and has taught thousands of indoor cycling classes over the past 5 years. Lena has also managed talent and developed training programs, curriculum, and content for studios and teachers across the U.S. and U.K. Her passion for indoor cycling, community outreach, and self-development motivated her to launch a studio closer to home. Lena is thrilled to open her first studio location, VERVE Studios Del Mar, and cannot wait to build this life-changing community!

You can catch Lena teaching VERVECYCLE 45, VERVECYCLE 60, and VERVE ELEVATE.
