Tell us about yourself.

 

Meet me Morgan,

I am the founder and owner of Lifecycle Spin Studio. Since I can remember I have always dreamed of owning and operating a business in Saskatoon. For the past eight years I have been a dedicated student at the University of Saskatchewan, studying Anthropology and Environmental Sciences. Before that I worked with my cousin’s at their jewelry store (Silver Street) where I was able to learn from them, develop and manage stores and best of all travel! Growing up a few blocks away from my late local fitness studio made me fall in love with spin at a young age. I could never find a spin class in Saskatoon quite like it so I purchased my own spin bike. Years later I went to Vancouver and received my indoor cycling instructor training and certification. If you know me well, then you know I can usually be found on my spin bike. After experiencing spin studio’s across North America, I wanted to bring an exciting and exhilarating studio to Saskatoon. Nothing can explain the empowerment and balance you feel after leaving a well-done spin class.

 


Describe a day in the life of Morgan.

 

A day in the life of Morgan…. First thing Coffee!! Then I focus on finishing important tasks for my business. The afternoon hits and I enjoy taking my two dogs, Bella and Abby to the dog park to let off some steam. My favorite part of the day is when I can go to the gym and let all my frustrations and worries out. Usually accompanied by my best friend, we sneak into the studio, blast music, challenge our workouts and even get a dance class in. Night usually ends up cuddled with the pups on the couch or sitting on my spin bike watching some of my favorite shows including The Bachelor or Kardashians (I am a sucker for reality TV).

 

What other education or development have you taken to enhance your skills?

I received my indoor cycling certification in Vancouver after my long love affair with spin. My goal was to start doing something that made me happy, and to me that was to be a spin instructor. After coming back to Saskatoon I realized there was no gym offering spin classes that allowed me to be creative or exciting like my training had taught me. That is when lifecycle spin studio was born. The passing of a close friend this past summer made me realize how short life is and don’t waste it on something you don’t enjoy.

 

Biggest challenge you face as an entrepreneur?

Being and entrepreneur is the most exciting thing I’ve done in my life. I am excited to be my own boss and lead and inspire others, to make a difference in my community and help as many people as possible. As much positivity and hope I have for my new business, there is always a voice in the back of my mind saying HOLY S**T you have a lot of things to do. It is scary to take on this challenge alone, but surrounding yourself with positive and encouraging people is the only way it was possible for me.

 

3 reasons why you love what you do:

 

  1. I get to bring an exciting new workout to Saskatoon that will thrill and inspire.

  2. To be my own boss.

  3. To feel like I am making a difference in my favorite city, Saskatoon!

 

What are some challenges you have encountered along the way?

The biggest challenge I have experienced throughout this process is doubters. Since Spin Studios have not hit Saskatoon yet, family and friends were unaware of the different and exhilarating experience I wanted to introduce. Since sharing my vision for Lifecycle, I have received so much support and glad to say I have changed those doubters minds!

 

Why did you choose BBS?

After speaking with Rebecca for the first time I realized she was the right person to help me and my team become successful. Her knowledge of the industry allows her to create our method development from years of experience. Most importantly, she believes in me and my strong mission for my business, to create a spin studio that Saskatoon has never experienced!

 

Five-year goals:
 

  1. Watch Lifecycle grow into the amazing spin studio I know it can be.

  2. Expand lifecycle throughout Saskatchewan.

  3. To have the drive and determination to start another business.

  4. Travel and discover what the world has to offer.

Water is SO important to our bodies. I cannot tell you how many times I have sat in with clients and ask them how much water they consume during a day and their response is always, ummmm I don't know, like 3 glasses maybe?

You have got to be KIDDING ME! Water is your bodies principal component and makes up 60% of your body weight! That being said, every system in your body depends on water so if you aren;t drinking enough, your system are able to flush, grow, dehydrate, carry nutrients, among many other things!

General Rule of thumb: You body needs more water than you think. 

Women: 2-3L

Men: 3-4L

This general rule of thumb applies to you not doing any strenuous physical activity, therefore you need even more than that if you are exercising.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Never get to thirst- that means you're already headed to dehydration
  • Carry a bottle everywhere you go- no excuses as you will be prepared
  • Have a bigger bottle than normal- it's a mind game. the bigger the bottle, the more you will drink
  • Don't like the "taste"?- add lemons, cucumbers, frozen fruit and create your own flavoured water

Get drinking

It's LIVE

Here it is!

 

My passion, my love and my life all in one website. I hope you love it as much as I do and join the BBS Nation with me! People have been asking, commenting, prying and really just wanting to know what was going on and as much as I wanted to spill the beans, I couldn't! This is why! Its here!

 

There are three components: The Fuel System, The Shape System and The Master Systems.

 

The Shape System

Going to the gym sucks, especially when you don’t have a clue what to do. How many times have you set a goal, gone to the gym and ended up hopping on the treadmill for a bit, do a couple of crunches and call it a day? ALL THE TIME!

The Shape System was designed for you to get the workout you desire and deserve. It’s like having a personal trainer beside you, without having to pay the cost. I have trained hundreds of individuals and am constantly asked for my workouts. Well here is the chance. Professionally shot workout videos with me doing the workout with you! Watch, learn and do, or better yet, take your phone or ipad to the gym, living room , or track and push yourself like you have never before. Videos will be posted for our BalancedBodyNation members and videos wil be archived so you always have something new, fresh and ccan go back if you liked a certain workout.

 

The Fuel System

It’s simple. I created a system in which clean, healthy, nutritious fuel can be learnt. I hate when people hire dieticians, nutritionists or go on “fad diets” just to fall back to their regular routines and have to invest again into their “goals”. Its about education and making smart decisions. My program will teach you that so you never have to “restart” and “invest” again. Learn a simple, step by step method on how to fuel your body for your workouts and for life. 

 

The Master System

Have you ever been to a class and the instructor was horrible and all you could think of is how you could possibly sneak out? Or you end up doing your own thing because the instructor has no idea what they are doing? 

We have all been there. That is the most horrifying position to be in, especially when you pay an arm and a leg, plus your first born for a fitness class. I've been there, multiple time. I have sat there and created lists of everything the instructor has done wrong. From basic physiology, to cueing, to music selection, to motivation, to engagement, the list goes on and on.

That is where I have developed the Master systems. The goals is to get all instructors to be their highest potential!

Within the Master System there are two packages, as well as mentoring and development. The master systems is for the new business about to launch, an experienced business that aren’t seeing success out of their instructors, instructors who just get out of their “certification” and don’t have a clue where to start. Each package specifically designed to see success

Can’t figure out which one is best? Take a look and let me know what you think!

I hope you can see my passion and love for helping others through my words and pictures.
