Klara Lavoie likes a good party. She is vivacious, energetic and in her own words ‘saucy’. So it makes sense that when asked to describe her favorite vacation destination it’s the peaceful township of Las Vegas. When not motivating people to push their limits on a spin bike she is a Clinical Research Coordinator for Alberta Health Services in Cancer Care. Originally from Ottawa, Klara moved to Calgary in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the city’s food scene, dance floors and One Cycle spin.
Stealing a piece of Klara’s heart isn’t easy so what was it about One Cycle that seduced her? “Teaching spin puts me in a great mood despite what’s going on in my day. Knowing that I have the power to motivate people to work hard, care about their health, and leave class happy is a true gift that I wouldn’t trade for anything.”.
How else does someone capture Klara’s heart? Pizza. All of the pizza.
At Klara’s classes you can expect to hear electronic dance music, hip hop, and all of the remixes. Her faves include Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar, and anything you would hear at a Las Vegas pool party.
When asked to describe Klara, her friend responded “She is a lot of fun. She has high energy and an exuberant personality. Most of all, Klara has a big heart.” Interestingly, that big heart did a 3 year stint in the Canadian army! So if a big heart and tough love sergeant-like approach is what you’re looking for in an instructor (and aren’t most of us?) then Klara is the girl to kick your fitness up a notch! Sir, yes sir!
