Esther Collinetti finds strength in vulnerability. She’s the co-owner of REV Cycle Studio, a spinning studio in McHenry Row, where she has offered high-energy, expletive-laden encouragement to spin clients since January 2014. Born in Nigeria to European parents, and raised in Chile, Esther has always felt like an outsider thanks to her unique accent and challenges in school. Before she ran a spin studio, Esther was a scientist at the Smithsonian Institution, and she talked about some of the experiences that inspired her to change course, including her father’s death, which had a profound effect on her. Esther talked about getting to the point where she could find power in that pain, and teaching her spin classes from a place of love rather than anger. Through teaching spin classes and goal coaching, Esther has found her passion in inspiring and motivating others.
