Born and raised in San Diego, CA, Cindy was involved in sports from a young age. She graduated from University of California, San Diego, where she competed as a NCAA athlete and was also part of the University Surf Team. After moving to Boston, MA, for her Ph.D. from Tufts University School of Medicine, Cindy found it difficult to find a group fitness setting that fit her competitive nature and strong passion for health and fitness. After graduating and moving back to San Diego in 2010, her sister introduced her to Pure Barre. She quickly fell in love with the technique and the physical and mental challenge Pure Barre provided and in 2016, she moved to the Austin area. Cindy’s search for her next barre studio ended when she walked through the doors at Pure Barre Cedar Park. It instantly felt like home where the members became her second family and have supported her through nearly everything since. She was encouraged to become an instructor in the fall of 2016 and so Cindy took the challenge head on and is loving every moment of it. She enjoys teaching and inspiring others to accomplish their goals physically and mentally in and out of class. Cindy teaches all formats and she is ready to help you feel your best after a strong workout.
