Shauna takes fitness seriously. Both hers and that of the hundreds of rabid fans of Hip-Hop Cycle, her insanely popular spinning class. While she finishes up her PhD at Johns Hopkins, she tortures (ahem, teaches) her east coast devotees at Baltimore’s best gym, Merritt Athletic club. But when she visits home, the West Coast faithful get a chance to take her class at the Equinox Palo Alto location….if they can get there early enough. This week, Shauna was good enough to commandeer a classroom so that I could experiment with some techniques I’d been wanting to try. And hopefully get some nice shots.
