Get to know our no-nonsense Instructor Sophia who goes by Drake's motto
Ahead of her Carnival rides this month, we're gonna get up close and personal with our Instructor Sophia.
In between his shoots and his jobs he leaves it all on the bike; When it comes to Theme Rides he thinks out of the box and goes all out! Thinking of riding with Jack this week? Read on to get to know him a bit better...
Where were you born/Where did you grow up?
Born in Brighton - still working on the growing up!!
When you’re not at BOOM, where are you?
I work for Soho House - so I'm there a lot. Otherwise in the gym or spending time with my family and friends.
What’s your life motto?
Less talk, more action
What is the first thing you do when you get up in the morning?
Reach for the coffee!
Friday night/Sunday afternoon - where can we find you?
Friday night having drinks in my garden with friends. Sunday afternoon teaching my niece new words!!
(Jack all geared up for his Bake Off Ride!)
Can you remember your first BOOM experience?
I used to ride Hilary's Tuesday night class - the ultimate sweat fest!!!
What’s your teaching style?
No messing. If you want whooping and glitter - I'm not your boy. If you want a meaner, leaner, stronger and more determined you - I am. Go hard or don't bother!!
Best part of being an instructor?
Meeting some amazing riders. Hearing about their lives and watching them improve.
Favourite way to sweat other than BOOM?
Bedroom workouts are always a winner!!!
Piece of advice for first time boomers?
Persevere. Like most things it takes a while to get comfortable with and find your groove. Find an instructor that motivates and inspires you and surge for your life!!!
(Did you know Jack used to be a professional gymnast????)
