Music is a big piece of what we strive to make really good at RINSE and this girl knows her music. Shelby and Kari bonded really quickly over their love of dance music and are constantly geeking out new drops, remixes, and discovering underrated gems. Many amazing playlists are due to Shelby and her finds. Aside from music, she is one of the most genuine, supportive, hardworking, and a true person of integrity. Always a team player and helping to sub whenever she can, and creates time for those she cares about (think about this - it isn't easy),even with her busy work schedule as a realtor. Shelby rides hard, but loves harder. RINSE is very lucky to have her. She makes us better and RINSE is a better place because of her. Learn more about Shelby below!
What’s your 9-5?
Realtor with Kunal Patel Group & Coldwell Banker
Outside of your 9-5 – tell us about all the badass things you’re up to:
Well, Real Estate is more 24/7 than 9-5, so more of that.
In your opinion, what makes RINSE's community so unique?
The music. There is something about music that seems to bring people closer to each other. And to me, music, sweat and community is the very foundation of RINSE. I recently read a study that suggests “playing music may be particularly potent in bringing about social closeness through the release of endorphins” …yup.
Best RINSE memory?
There are definitely a few. I don’t remember the exact ride or date, but I can still recall the feeling after finishing my 3rd or 4th ride in Kari’s garage and having that “hell yes” moment. I had been battling a hip injury which eliminated my routine ways of sweating (bye, hot yoga). So finding my “groove” on the bike and feeling healthy and strong afterwards was amazing. A few specific rides would definitely be the black friday ride, my birthday/dipo ride and the photoshoot ride — I mean, I don’t even have words for that one.
What other workouts do you do outside of RINSE?
As I mentioned, dealing with what I thought to be a hip tear, I now do little to nothing outside of RINSE. And I’m not mad about it, the bikes are low impact and the rides are fireee. I enjoy running and mountain biking with my boyfriend.
Fave quote or words to live by?
Dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people.
What’s your #1 life hack?
Someone told me instead of ice cubes use frozen coffee cubes in iced coffee, which sounds genius — but ask me if I’ve ever actually done it.
How has RINSE impacted your life?
My friend was telling me all about these “garage rides” and as a music loving, HIIT junkie — it sounded right up my alley. But it was SO much more. It’s my community. It’s my therapy. No matter what life throws my way, I know I can jump on my bike and RINSE IT OUT. Outside of the physical and mental impact, it has also brought me some of my closest friendships!
What is your favorite ride and why?
EXTRA RINSE because it’s 60 minutes chock-full of amazing dance/remix jams. For me, it’s the most invigorating way to get a serious sweat in (body & mind).
Song you have on repeat?
Oof that’s hard! Loyal by ODESZA for sure. But, there have been some amazing drops this summer by my faves like RL Grime, ZHU and Drezo.
Advice you have for new riders?
Just ride! No judgments or expectations. The ride has a funny way of giving you exactly what YOU need, both physically and mentally.
What does RINSE mean to you?
RINSE means liberation. By definition liberation means “freedom from limits on thought or behavior.” I am a very competitive, type A personality (ask anyone) but during/after rides this all falls away.
