Instructors | Cycle Ave.

Kristin Braley

Kristin came to Cycle Ave with a passion for fitness and overall well being, believing that even the hardest things can be overcome with a little bit of sweat therapy! Her love of loud music combined with positive vibes make her classes that much more fun.

You won’t leave her class feeling like you didn’t get a workout! When she is not on the bike, she is spending time with her daughter, family, and friends most likely with red wine in hand!

Maddy Novicky

Born and raised in Arizona! I’ve been married to my husband, Colton, for two years and we have two beautiful puppy babies. I love food, especially cheeseburgers and donuts. You can catch me at In-n-Out every Friday. I teach spin because I want to inspire people to be their best selves no matter where they are at in their fitness journey. I was never the person that worked out or was ever remotely interested in fitness, but I have always loved music.

I remember 10 minutes into my very first spin class I was like, “What the heck am I doing to myself?!?!?” but the beat of the music and the energy of instructor kept me going and I actually felt pretty good after! I love Cycle Ave. because the community is one of a kind. The workout is amazing, but the riders and the staff really make it such a fun experience.

Melanie Minich

Hi, my name is Melanie Minich! When I am not cycling I’m a couples therapist in Scottsdale, AZ and I love love love my job. I love to cook, tend to my many house plants, and make homemade soaps (it’s a lot I know)! I love Cycle Ave because being apart of a team while also being able to pick my own gear/speed allowed me to feel powerful but supported by everyone in that room through my fitness goals. Now, I’m newer on the podium but have been cycling at Cycle Ave for 3 years and I am excited about this new adventure!

When you come to my class you can expect a range of music genres and artists, I love to switch it up! I can wait to see you there.

Morgan Allen

I am originally from Michigan but grew up here in AZ. I grew up playing every sport imaginable, but Volleyball is where I specialized. I played in high school & club, as well as a year in college!

Team sports are 100% my thing, and I think that’s where my love for Cycle Ave rooted from!

If I’m not at Cycle Ave, you’ll find me grabbing coffee & brunch with my friends or catching up on the latest episodes of the Bachelor!

Renee Davis

Renee has always been an “on the go” type of person. Growing up in California, she loved dancing and surfing . After moving away for school , she used the gym as a way to pass time. It wasn’t until after she had her son that she discovered her love of health and fitness. Being a mom, she loves helping people build confidence and strength in the weight room.

After trying one strength class, she knew that FunkFit was a community she needed to be apart of. Whether she is riding to the beat with Cycle Ave or helping you hit a new PR, Renee is eager to help you with those fitness goals. She coaches for FunkFit and is an instructor for Cycle Ave.

Taylor Kobert

Born & raised in sunny AZ, I genuinely enjoy living here! I grew up on the west side of town before moving to the best (I mean east) side of town 4 years ago. I have a cute little house that my boyfriend (he’s the one) & I share with our beloved animal tribe— two dogs and 1 extra adorable house-trained bunny. I grew up playing competitive volleyball in both club & high school.

The loud music and lights put you on another workout level, it’s a sweat party!! One of the main reasons I fell in love with Cycle Ave is the feeling of being on a team that moves together, even though everyone in the room came individually to work on themselves, we work harder together and motivate each other to push ourselves to be 1% better each class. I can’t wait to see you in the saddle at one of my classes soon!

Paige Cavner

I’ve grown up in the east valley (Gilbert/ Chandler) and I am currently a Junior at Perry High School.

Working for Cycle Ave has allowed me to share my love for fitness with others. Being from a family that loves to be active, I have developed a passion for health and wellness.

Cycling has been a fun way for me to get my cardio in outside of running. When I am not working you can find me hanging out with my friends or on a field playing lacrosse.

Whitney Sweet

Mother to a beautiful 6 year old girl, a leader, a strong independent woman and I am passionate about life! Showing my daughter through my actions that life is what you make it, is my mission. Empowering others to reach their goals and venture out of their comfort zone is what it’s all about. Next to Spin, Soccer is my second love! There is nothing I crave more than being on the field and being part of a team that moves together.

When I’m not in the studio you can catch me running 2 adult coed soccer teams. Tunes in my class range from house to hip hop. Music is in my soul and teaching spin is the best outlet! Seeing how a group of people are motivated by the same music, at the same time there really is nothing like it. The energy that comes from the music and how that fuels each of us to feed off of each other in the studio is the best feeling.

Kaya Perks

Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah now living in Gilbert, Arizona! I am a senior at Perry High School, and plan to go to college at ASU. I spend my time at school, work, and being with the people I love!

I was a competitive figure skater for over 10 years, but when I stepped back from the sport, I still needed some sort of fun exercise to do. That’s when I found Cycle Ave. I first came to Cycle Ave almost 2 years ago to try out, and I loved my first class because of the music, the energy, and the overall positive vibes. Now apart of the staff, I love making everyone’s experiences as best as possible!
