KATHERINE CHRISTEL

VCYCLE TRAINER





Katherine joins the LavaCycle team as a three-time National Champion lightweight rower and Ben & Jerry’s connoisseur. She recently made the move to DC from California, where she studied Human Biology and rowed on Stanford’s Lightweight Crew Team. While training at Stanford, Katherine picked up cycling for cross training and injury prevention.

Here in DC, Katherine works as a military health consultant and enjoys adventuring across the city and into Northern Virginia’s Wine Country. She was immediately attracted by the positive energy and workout intensity at LavaCycle, and she has found her fellow instructors and passionate, fitness-oriented clients to be her biggest inspiration. When not in the studio, you’ll likely catch her practicing holistic wellness through vegetarian cooking, running, traveling, or meditating.
