Emily Skoniecki (Co-Owner)
Emily, born and raised in Beverly, Ma, played field hockey, softball, cheered, and was captain of the gymnastics team while at BHS. She then went on to Endicott College, receiving a BA in Human Services. After college, Emily joined her local gym and quickly got bored with the individual machines. Intrigued by the dark lights, loud music, intensity, and sweat flying everywhere, she decided to give spinning a shot and has been hooked ever since. “It really brings back the feeling of being on a team, all working together to accomplish your goals, yet being able to use everyone around you as competition to push you along!” Emily’s classes offer a variety of music from old school to new school, from pop to rock, and she promises they will motivate you throughout the entire workout. “What I love most about spinning is the moment that you shut out the whole world and are able to get into your zone. It is truly the most therapeutic activity you can do for yourself and after the class you feel incredible. I am extremely passionate about this exercise and am so happy to be able to share it with all of you- hope to see you soon at The Inner Cycle!”
