All About Us: Jessica

ROCKSTAR Jessica gives us the inside scoop on how she found cycling, her love for wine & cheese, & how she finds her uforia!

MEET Jessica

I played volleyball all the way through college so I always had a built-in fitness routine because of it. After I graduated, I needed to fill that void. I tried a variety of fitness routines (gym memberships, personal training, etc.), but struggled to find something that gave me the same feeling of…uforia! I then discovered cycling and was hooked after my first class. It was the butt-kicking workout I was craving and I had a blast doing it! Then came uforia!

FAVORITE LOCALΒ HOT SPOTS?

You can find me brunching at True Food Kitchen on the weekends – I highly recommend their avocado toast and banana date smoothie – after hiking the Dish on the Stanford campus. Join me!

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

If I’m not a uforia, you can find me happy with a bottle of wine and a group of friends to share stories and laugh with.

WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR UFORIA?

I find my uforia when I finally achieve something I’ve been working towards. I love challenging myself and learning new things – there is nothing better than that moment when all of your hard work has paid off and you can see the results.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PRE/POST WORKOUT SNACKS?

I try to hydrate as much as possible before a workout, and am usually on the go so will grab a banana or granola bar before I hop on the bike. After class, if I’m being good, I’ll have a chocolate protein shake with almond milk, and if I’m not so good, I’ll treat myself to cheese and a glass of wine πŸ™‚

FAVORITE SONG AT THE MOMENT?

Ahhhh so many! I’ve had the Chainsmokers and the Weeknd on repeat for weeks!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT US TO KNOW?

Feedback is a gift! I want you to have as much fun in class as I’m having, so if there’s a song you want to hear or something you like, I want to know! Also, I just moved to the Bay for school (I was shivering in Minnesota for 8 years before this), so would love to meet you and get all your tips on how to take advantage of living in this beautiful place!
