DEZ - LEADER

Hey you! Yeah you! I'm Dez! Aka Aunty Dez aka "The Boss" around the studio! I am the owner of The S2DIO!

I have been spinning for over two decades... Yup before all the cool kids were into it! 😉 It was always my go to for fitness classes! I have been instructing for approximately eight years and took the plunge into business in 2018!! It has been a wild few years to say the least, but we are still here and stronger than ever!


My style on the bike is hard, heavy and in your face! My beats have mega bass and will definitely get you pumping those legs like you've never thought you could! I promise that when you think you can't push those pedals one more time, you'll give me at least three more! Join me on the bike for the sweatiest, funnest hell of your life! XO

CAYLEE - LEADER

"It was a Wednesday in November, 2018, when I stepped into the S2DIO for the first time. I remember it like it was yesterday. I clipped in for my first class not knowing what to expect, and I left afterwards thinking, “What the heck just happened?!” I woke up the next day with pain in my nether region so bad, I thought I’d never sit on a bike again! But did that stop me? Well yes...for a week. And then I was back for more. I came back again, and again, and again. My butt got used to the seat, I got the hang of the crazy moves, and I started getting into a real groove. That’s when the obsession started.

I started teaching in July of 2019. I love the way spin makes me feel inside and out, and although I never in a million years thought I would one day be up on the podium, now that I'm here I can't imagine it any other way. I am so happy to be part of this amazing team here at the S2DIO.

So what are you waiting for??? You can come spin with me on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. I promise to provide you with a challenging and motivating workout, with super fun music to keep you going! See you on the bike!

ALEX - LEADER

"I'm Alex! I've been with the S2DIO now for almost a year, and teaching spin going on my 6th year. Being apart of the S2DIO is like nothing I have experienced before. It's uplifting, it's supportive, it's crazy fun, and down right the best place to sweat it out or just to hang out.


I am a social worker at the hospital for a day job, and a full time mom to a little boy and girl. I've had a passion for fitness from a young age always being involved in sports up until I got into teaching on the bike.


I've had the privilege growing up with a fitness fanatic mother that has paved the way for me to want to be the best role model for my family and everyone around, because who doesn't love to feel stronger and healthier!? 


The S2DIO has become my family, and it will for sure become yours! See you on the bike ❤️

PICHULA - LEADER

Hey!! My name is Jessica Pichula (mostly just Pichula around the shop!) and you will find me at The S2DIO most early mornings! A little secret (that is not such a secret) early mornings are my absolute favourite!

 

I am a mom and a daycare owner so I know how busy life can get. I am all about carving out specific time in the day for you to feel strong, empowered and unstoppable while we dance on those bikes!

 

My goal for each class is for YOU to feel proud of the work you are putting in as you progress towards your goals. Let's get in and get sweaty before the sun comes up!

NICHOLSON - LEADER

Hey!! I’m Jess aka Nicholson!! I’ve been a leader since July 2019. Before instructing I was looking for a change and the S2DIO was the answer! It definitely got me out of my comfort zone and since then, I have been hooked!


I am definitely a sucker for a good remix of the music we all know and love! You can find me riding to everything from rap, rock and even country! I promise to challenge you and make you feel accomplished by the cool down!


Fitness has been a huge part of my life whether it’s playing sports, doing CrossFit or coming to spin. Since losing over 100 pounds I’m hoping to inspire people that you can do anything you set your mind to!! I am Super excited to be apart of the S2DIO community, and meet all of you!

 

Hope to see all your smiling faces on those bikes!

JAIME - LEADER

I grew up in Moose Jaw, SK, always involved in team activities and any sport I could fit in my busy schedule. I found a passion and drive for fitness that continues to push me, which has since evolved into a career. I've worked as a personal trainer, health coach, group fitness instructor and kinesiologist before switching careers to become a Recreational Programmer here in Prince Albert at Hope’s Home, working with children with complex medical needs. Off the bike you can catch me either eating breakfast for supper, or playing outside with my husband Kyle and our doggo Captain.

I’ve lived and taught spin in three different provinces, but there’s something about those Sask riders that blows me away! What motivates me to jump on that bike is the energy in that room within those four walls. I want riders to realize their potential, tapping into their strength and power while we move as a team to the beat of the music. You can do anything you set your mind to; the bike is the perfect place to start

JESSICA - LEADER

Hey everyone! I’m Jessica Anderson and I am the newest member of the S2DIO team :)

 

I’ve always had fitness in my life, whether it be running races, lifting weights or taking fitness classes. I’ll never forget seeing picture of this woman “Dez” all over my social media saying she was starting a spin studio. I kind of shrugged it off at first, but obviously technology knows us best, as I kept seeing these pictures!

 

I had to try it out and see what this wild woman was bringing to little ol PA! I went to my first class at the old location, and now three years later, The S2DIO has become my second home.

 

When I am not at the S2DIO, you can find me out in the wilderness. I LOVE camping and hiking in the summers, snow shoeing and skiing in the winters, and taking care of my family and my mini me (my little girl Prairie) in between!

 

This amazing community has helped me surpass all goals I had set for myself and has helped my confidence soar! Come spin with me and make it apart of your journey! See you on the bike!

JAYLYNN.jpg

JAYLYNN - LEADER

Hey guys! My name is Jaylynn Parenteau. I am many things... a wife, a mother of two beautiful little girls, a dental therapist, a hairdresser, a fitness enthusiast and a spin fanatic!

 

Let’s be honest here, I spent years thinking that spin wasn’t for me, I thought it was kinda boring... UNTIL I walked into what would become the first S2DIO location and saw what spin really was. It was love at first sight!

 

I gave my heart, my soul and the skin off my ass and put it into training to be a spin instructor. I’ve spent the last year shredding my classes with weights, telling silly stories, and giving every bit of myself to spread spin joy and make my riders feel as blessed and happy as I am to be part of the S2DIO family!

 

Come ride with me, Tuesday through Thursday at 4:30, and bring your loudest “whoop whoop” with you!

STEPH - LEADER

Haaaaay! My name is Stephanie (Hay)! I became a S2DIO leader November 2020 and there are days i still can't believe this is where life brought me.


Exercise has always been a struggle in my life. I was the girl who paid for a gym membership but never used it. I found spin in March 2019 and was addicted from that first moment I clipped in. I found myself sitting at home bored and looking to see if there were open bikes on a Saturday afternoon. I kept thinking "who is this girl?". 


I lost my mom to Ovarian Cancer in September 2018 and the S2DIO quickly became my safe haven to grieve, grow, and discover who I am. I have learned so much about myself from coming and sweating with this crazy spin family. Spin is more than exercise... it is freedom, discovery, and a whole lot of fun! I am so excited to share these moments of growth with you on the bike!


Some fun facts about me:
- latin, dancehall, hip hop, and Afro-beat music is my fav (so you can expect to hear that in my classes)
- my legal first name is not Stephanie
- I have a healthy addiction to popcorn and gummy candies
- I'm an only child
- Crafting is my therapy
- I've travelled to 20 countries 


Can't wait to dance on that bike together!

SAM - LEADER

Hey guys! Sam here! I was born and raised here in Prince Albert and growing up, I was always involved in numerous team and individual sports, from soccer and basketball all the way to wrestling. So needless to say, fitness has been a big part of my life. HOWEVER.. I never would have dreamed even 1 or 2 years ago that I would be a spin instructor today!

 

I first stepped foot in the S2DIO in October of 2019. I was greeted by amazing staff and I felt so welcomed. I was so nervous for my first ride but I absolutely fell in love with the intense energy and positivity in that room. It’s what kept me coming back and I couldn’t get enough of it. I enjoyed each ride even more than the last as I got stronger and more confident in my abilities in class. When I saw that instructor auditions were being held, I was hesitant at first. But after some time to think, I decided to take a chance and boy am I glad I did. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team and I can’t wait to help you smash your goals and have some fun along the way!

 

Off the bike, I am a wife and a nurse. I love spending time with family and I have one rambunctious kitty at home that drives me crazy, but I love him anyway. My favourite fruit is watermelon, my favourite type of bread is rye, and my go-to binge tv show is The Big Bang Theory. Now that you know a little bit about me, let’s spin together!

 

I cannot wait to meet you!!

HEATHER - LEADER

Hey All! I’m Heather Mackie! 


I was born and raised right here in Prince Albert!  I have been a dancer all my life which kept me pretty active growing up! I was never really into other forms of fitness and struggled to find fitness activities I could actually stick with and really enjoyed.


I was very excited when the S2DIO opened up here in PA, something different I had never tried before! I walked into my first class feeling SO nervous, not knowing what to expect. After the warm up I knew I was hooked! The music, the lights, the movements and the CRAZY positive energy was absolutely incredible!


When I heard about instructor auditions I was pretty hesitant at first, but I went for it! I am so excited to be apart of the S2DIO family! Such a positive and empowering team!! 
Outside of spin I am a Substitute Teacher with Sask Rivers School Division and I am also a Dance Instructor/Barre Instructor at Ballet N All That Jazz Dance Studio! 

 

Can’t wait to see you all on the bike!!

Hey!!

I'm Claudine, but here at the S2DIO, everyone calls me Dizzle! I am a Registered Massage Therapist, and being active has always been a huge part of my life. When the opportunity arose to combine my passion for physical well-being and helping others stay active, I jumped at the chance to become a S2DIO leader!

My journey as a spin instructor has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. It has impacted my life in the most wonderful ways.

Still, I was lucky to be doing it in the most uplifting community Prince Albert has to offer, and I'm overjoyed that I'll be able to assist you; while transforming your abilities!

Let me inspire you with some fun-filled, powerhouse electronic dance tunes that will get you feeling motivated and energized to work. I challenge you to take that first step, come join the fun with me as you become the most powerful version of yourself!
