Tom Kristo is the founder and operator of Psycle. Tom’s background
is as a golf professional at several private clubs in the Minneapolis/St.
Paul area. The combination of running the golf operations at exclusive
private country clubs combined with a passion for fitness is what led Tom
to opening Psycle. A former marathon runner who had to cut back on
running as he aged and broke down, Tom found indoor cycling could
give him the “high” he used to get while running without all the stress on
his body. The combination of cycling, a little running, strength training,
stretching, yoga and a diet that is fun but not too fun has made Tom feel
as though he is in the best shape of his life.
My Psycle Class
It is a combination of standing surges with tension, running out of the
saddle, climbing, upper body and core work. You will not spend very
much time with your butt on the saddle and everything is done to the
music. If you don’t like what is happening at any given point in the
class just wait a minute because we will be on to something else. I am
off the bike a lot and I will motivate people to reach a level they didn’t
think they had in them. I get great joy out of seeing people exceed
their expectations of themselves. My greatest joy is hearing a client
say, “I didn’t think I was going to make it through your class today, but I
somehow found a way.” Truth be know, I sometimes wonder how I am
going to make it… and when I do it is one of the best moments of the day!
