Justis James (Q) Could you tell us a little more about CYCLEology? What exactly is it?
Kristen James (A) CyCLEology is a high intensity interval training ride that takes you on the ultimate fitness journey on a bike. The great thing about it is you can take it anywhere there’s a stationary bike. Just download it into your iPod and get on and ride. I coach you thru sprints, hills, tabata intervals and strength training. It’s a must have especially if you train indoors or vacation and are looking for a quality workout!
Justis James (Q) If someone wanted to get involved with CYCLEology how would they go about that? Where would they have to go in order to be instructed by you? Do you have a website?

Justis James (Q) Since your last name is James there are certain things that are required of you, and excellence is one of them. Is there anything else you would like to personally add?
Kristen James (A) I was raised to always give everything you do your best shot. Never settle for second best and the grass isn’t greener on the other side, the grass is greener where you water it. My Dad always said to me, do what you love and love what you do everyday.
Justis James (Q) I’ve heard the way you speak in some of your training videos and it’s very seductive. Do you find yourself having more male clientele than women because of it?
Kristen James (A) Lol!! I think I’ve gotten more dates from my voice, not more male clients!
Justis James (Q) Who has better abs you or Madonna?
Kristen James (A) I do because mine aren’t surgically enhanced, but she’s got better moves on the dance floor than me!!
