JENNIFER JUSTO

Over the past 25+ years of teaching fitness classes, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people. They may say that I inspire them and have changed their lives, but this is actually what THEY do for ME. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 20 years, and have 2 sons who are my heart and soul. I am so honored to say that this is my 7thyear being a part of the CT Challenge instructor team.

LOREN WILLIAMSON

I’ve been a spin and group exercise instructor for a decade now. When not on the bike or in the group ex studio, I’m walking my dog, shuttling around my two kids or spending time with my husband here in Fairfield.  I am thrilled and honored to be back and part of the CT Challenge – my fifth time participating! 

ROB NEWMARK

Why I am Instructing:  It’s a great cause bringing together an amazing group of riders I have gotten to know through the years at The Edge.
About: I have been a spin instructor with The Edge Fitness Clubs since 2008 and a part of the spinning community there since 2001.
Fun Fact: Spinning has been instrumental in my physical transformation from being 315 pounds to getting back to being in good active condition… I also play lots of Rock Music!!! 🤘

LAURETTA JANZ (AKA SPINDOC)

Teaching classes, motivating and encouraging people has always been a passion of mine. The one thing I love to do is help people change their lives. This is my 29th year of inspiring people through my teaching, 19th year at the Edge. I am married and have 2 wonderful teenagers, and a dog. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, traveling and hanging out with my friends and family. 

MARY-KATE O’BRIEN

Mary-Kate is a Fairfield native who recently moved back to the area from Arizona. Following her passion for fitness and nutrition she became certified in Yoga and a Spin Instructor in 2014. Adding to her resume she is also a Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition.
In her spare time she enjoys  spending time with her family, dogs and teaching to her clients!

JESSICA FIGLIUZZI

At just 18 years old, I completed my first spinning certification. Nearly 10 years later, I still teach the first permanent spin class I ever received at the Edge. Boxing Coach, Personal Trainer, and Lagree Fitness Instructor are just a few of the other fitness related “work” titles I hold.  Outside of the gym, you can find me treating myself to pizza and sangria with my hubby-to-be, Rory, or snuggling with our chunkster English Bulldog, Tuck. I am thrilled to participate as an instructor again in the CT Challenge this year after 3 previous incredible and motivating experiences!
