MY Team

Mike Yaba, Owner
Cycling Instructor, Personal Trainer

Mike was overweight and needed to change his lifestyle. He took his first cycling class in 2009 and instantly started to see results. Cycling helped him shed the pounds and motivated him to work harder. He enjoyed the classes so much that he knew he wanted to instruct and share his own personal weight loss success story by motivating others by example. Cycling not only changed his life but took him to a new career in fitness. Mike loves the feeling you get after a great class, heart pumping, the energy is soaring, everyone is so happy. He loves watching every single member get results because of MY Ride.
Mike is the owner MY Ride and describes his class style as being full of high energy; motivational, deep inside your mind and soul kind of workout. His favorite moves are sprints, tap backs and hovers. He likes to play and jam to dance & club in his classes.

Mike has various certifications:

  • Mad Dogg Athletics Cycling Certification
  • The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Personal Trainer Certification
  • Schwinn Cycling Classic Instructor Certification
  • Pound Pro Certification

Mike opened MY Ride in January 2014. Prior to that, he received his MAD Dogg cycling certification in 2009 and started instructing at a local gym. He was promoted to Manager but still taught cycling classes and continued personal training. A few years later, Mike was recruited to help two investors open a specialized indoor cycling facility. He managed, trained instructors and instructed numerous classes weekly. A year and half later, Mike opened his own indoor cycling and fitness studio. His idea was to offer more options for members such as different types of cycling classes, various cycling levels, as well as fitness programs such as MY Circuit and personal training to accompany indoor cycling. What MY Ride offers is not only an indoor cycling facility but an all-around group fitness under one roof. Mike's personal fitness goals are to allow each member to reset their mind about fitness. To help motivate members to achieve the results that they cannot achieve on their own. To help them plan a moderately-intense full body program to slowly, and progressively get them into enjoying their workouts and seeing the results from their hard work. His philosophy is simple: Be In It For the Long Run! Never Quit! Realize that fitness should be a lifetime commitment with ever-changing goals and expectations.

By the way...don't tell anyone but he loves pizza!!!

Connie, Co-Owner
Cycling Instructor

Connie began indoor cycling in the 90’s while a close friend was instructing.  Fast forward twenty years and she was hooked when she was introduced to the MY Pulse format.  Similarly, she was introduced to Pound Fit while on vacation and immediately fell in love and brought the format back as MY Pound. She loves both workouts because they allow her to shake off whatever ails her and put her in a happy place.  She says “it’s the ultimate way to clear your head and keep you feeling your best.”

Connie loves fast-paced and upbeat music and likes to be up out of the saddle or pounding it out.   Her class style is fun, full of energy, and will send you away feeling great!!!  She is Schwinn and Pound Pro certified.  Connie wants each member to experience and embrace the positive changes either physically or mentally that will come from the commitment and hard work they put into achieving their personal fitness goals. Members will work hard, have fun, and won’t be able to wait to come back for more.

Connie enjoys telecommuting as a Facility Contract Manager and spending time with her wonderful family when she is not at the studio.  She is an amazing member of management and treats every member and employee with dignity and respect.  Her energy is infectious and she is the glue that holds MY Ride together.
