After retiring from competition swimming, I was looking for something that would give me that amazing cardio workout and†cycling at FIT RYDE was it! †I began†cycling and immediately fell in love with it. I believe a work out is all about your effort and your personal goals, and of course having fun! As an instructor my goal is always to make the workout just that-- fun! †My professional occupation is education. I enjoying teaching and by day my job is directing a preschool.

Shannon NarvaezREAL RYDER certified
Shannon found FitRyde a few years ago when she was “on the mend” from some nagging injuries. She found that the high energy of the classes, along with the versatility of the bikes, made for a fabulous, fun workout, without all the strain on her body. She’s been hooked ever since! She has been involved in fitness and exercise her entire life (as a state champion gymnast, collegiate track athlete and gym enthusiast). She believes there are so many ways to get and stay fit, that those ways may change for an individual over time, and that it should always be fun and enjoyable… part of the reason why she loves to get Fit and Ryde!
Shannon is Real Ryder Certified, as well as Certified in Small Group Training. She is passionate about the role of nutrition and (local) farming in our dietary choices, and has become an avid student on the empowering benefits of essential oils to one’s overall health and wellness.
Shannon lives in Wilmington with her husband and three boys, where she helps coach their cross country and track teams. When she is not working, teaching or playing chauffeur, she enjoys obstacle course racing, camping, hiking, backpacking, or anything else that keeps her moving! While she leads a very full life, she also cherishes time with friends and family, whom she loves to cook for and entertain (if you can make her stay still long enough!).
Tara CampbellTara is an avid triathlete and experienced spin instructor of 8 years. Her interest in spin began during a time when she had to rehab an ankle injury. She turned to spinning as a way to remain active. This quickly led to a passion for working with others and being a part of leading them on their spinning journey.
As an instructor, Tara challenges her classes and encourages them to try to reach new levels of fitness that they didn't think were possible; all while enjoying the ride. Being an experienced triathlete, Tara is also able to bring a wealth of knowledge to spinning to help individuals train, prepare and race.
Staying fit and healthy is an important part of Tara's life; having the ability to actively play with her two children and dog, Fenway. She also enjoys swimming several days a week with the Master's swim group, running, reading, and cooking.
