This week we sat down to talk to our newest Instructor, Cynthia Sanchez. The Laredo native has always been into fitness and started riding at Rev two years ago. She brings her sassy, upbeat style to the bike every week and we couldn’t wait to learn a little bit more about her!

There is nothing better than having one of my students realize they’re stronger and more resilient than they ever thought possible.

What is something that you are not good at?
I’m not good at doing things on time. Oh, I have a project due in ten minutes? How much do you want to bet I’ll write an entire essay in the next nine minutes? I need a dress for an event? Guess I’ll buy it on my way there. I will procrastinate until the end of my days. Lol
