Diane Kenney

I have been coaching since 2012. My passion for fitness started as a teenager. I got a membership at a local gym and quickly fell in love with both group fitness and weightlifting. In high school I joined the swim team competing in freestyle and backstroke. I became a lifeguard and that lead to my very first teaching experience, water aerobics, at the young age of 16. I left the pool and went to school to become a Veterinary Technician, which was my career for 12 years, until I had my first child. I became a stay home mom. A year after my second child I decided to apply for a Group Fitness position at my local gym and I have not looked back.

I have been involved in athletics since age 6 when I joined swim team for the first time. After years in aquatics  and other organized sports I fell in love with running, which changed my life. In the decade that followed I ran many races, including five marathons (one being the Boston Marathon in 2008). I also dabbled in triathlons. Also during this decade I graduated college and became a first grade teacher. I was invited to my first spin class in 2007 by a good friend. I was instantly in love and became a faithful group x participant until I was asked if I wanted to teach. Group fitness, especially indoor cycling, has been a passion and way of life for me ever since. Twelve years later, I am still as excited about instructing as day one. I stepped down from my classroom teaching position when my first of four children was born in 2012. This opened the door for me to continue pursuing a fitness career as I was primarily home with my son. I have now taught just about everything—Cycle, R.I.P.P.E.D., Turbo Kick, Pump, Barre, Cardio Yoga, HIIT and Silver Sneakers.
