Interview with Scott

  1. How did you hear about BESPOKE?

I was part of a weight loss challenge in my office. We paired up in teams of 2 for the contest. My partner suggested we try to spin at BESPOKE as part of our winning strategy.

            2. Had you ever spun before BESPOKE before joining?
I had never taken a spin class before. It was never on my radar and I probably never would have tried it had it not been for the office weight loss challenge.
           3. Who is your fitness role model, and why?
I have been taking 5-10 classes at BESPOKE every week for about a year and a half now. My fitness role models are the students I ride with. I have seen positive physical changes with some of them and it keeps me coming back. The instructors and staff keep me engaged and give positive reinforcement every time I ride.
          4. Tell us of a specific accomplishment you’ve had with your active lifestyle.
I am in the best shape of my life right now. I lost 20 pounds in the first 6 months I started riding. I joined a gym near my apartment this year and have been consistent with  BESPOKE and the gym.
          5. What keeps you motivated lately?
Looking good at pool parties and the beach this summer was a big motivator. As a recently single guy in LA, it doesn’t hurt to look good and be in shape.
          6. What changes have you made that are working for you?
I pack a healthy lunch during the week for work. I used to go out to lunch every day with my team. This was costly and I didn’t make the most healthy choices when ordering. Fixing your diet is part of getting healthy. I have also reduced my drinking during the week. Spin class with a hangover sucks!! LOL
           7. Any other breakthroughs you’ve had that you want to share?
I didn’t have a consistent fitness routine or diet prior to joining BESPOKE. I didn’t think I had time to squeeze fitness into my busy schedule. WRONG! We all can find an hour or two every day for self-care.
           8. Where there any obstacles or challenges you faced in losing weight?
Too many to mention. The big ones would be talking myself out of taking a class or not going to the gym. I can also get easily talked into leaving my lunch in the refrigerator at work and going to lunch with my team. They almost shame me into going out to lunch. I think they are just jealous of the progress I have made… LOL
           9. What would you tell new riders?
Commit to at least one month at BESPOKE. The first week or two can seem really hard keeping up with the constant peddling and choreography. You will improve quickly and get all the moves down. The results will follow.
          10. What has been your most memorable experience with BESPOKE?
The first time I took a double class was a breakthrough for me. I had seen dramatic physical changes that I was not able to achieve at the gym on my own. I have made great friends as well. I now get text messages from students asking if I signed up for class the next day. I love that!! BESPOKE is my fitness family and I am grateful for all the support and encouragement I receive from the riders, instructors, and staff.
#theBESPOKEeffect with Scott Siegfreid
Riding Since: May 2017 | Number of Rides: 297Scott initially heard about BESPOKE from a co-worker that was doing a weightless challenge with him. He had never taken a spin class before had it not been for his office weight loss challenge. He would tell new riders: “Commit to at least tone month at BESPOKE. The first week or two can seem really hard keeping up with the constant peddling and choreography. You will improve quickly and get all the moves down. The results will follow!”
