SPOTLIGHT: Master Instructor Danielle Devine-Baum

By December 30, 2013 No Comments

New York Flywheel Master Instructor Danielle Devine-Baum caught the fitness bug at an early age. Years of studying figure skating, ballet and modern jazz along with indoor cycling classes (she began at age 14!) led her to realize that she wanted a career in fitness. We’re glad she did! Read more about Danielle and what to expect from her inspiring classes at Flywheel NYC.

The vibe:
“My class is all about music and letting the music lead you on an emotional and physical roller coaster. It’s high energy, focused and above all, fun.”

The music:
“I play everything. A typical playlist will include what I call a “bastard mix” of all genres. Examples include The Who, Mumford & Sons, A Tribe Called Quest, Jackson Browne, Jay Z, Fleetwood Mac, Phoenix, Bruce Springsteen, and more.”

When I’m not teaching…
“I am either working out at As One Effect in Columbus Circle, or at home with my husband Robbie and French Bulldog Stella cooking dinner. We like to cook every night. ”

The coolest thing that happened in my class:
“In the three years I have been with Flywheel, I have made life long friends—some are riders and some are co-workers. I am very lucky to be surrounded by people I love.”

The moment I knew Flywheel was for me:
“Before I auditioned, Ruth asked me to take her class. From the moment the first song came on, I knew that this was where I wanted to be.”

My go-to style:
“I have a hard time wearing “real” clothes since I pretty much live in exercise gear. However, when I do go into my closet, I keep it functional and casual. All year round, I like rocking the summer dress and boots look.”

In one word:
My friends describe me as: Driven
If I could teach class with one particular celebrity or music artist it would be: Mumford & Sons. Live ride. Swoon!
I never leave my house without:  iPod!
If I could travel to one place in the world I would go to: Provence, France

My mantra? I’m not one to use quotes but here are some kickass song lyrics that get me going:
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
And where you invest your love, you invest your life.
– Mumford & Sons/Awake My Soul
