Alexis Devine, the co-owner of Devine City Cycle (DCC), is dedicated to inspiring others to be their best selves through fitness. She holds a BA in public health from Brown University and is currently Lifespan's Workforce Development Coordinator, as well as a social and behavioral science faculty member at the Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School. Her expertise in designing behavioral health interventions and improving health outcomes is embedded in the fabric of DCC's philosophy on the benefits of exercise and how to attain one's personal best. Alexis has been teaching group fitness for over a decade and aims to provide individualized workouts within her classes, pushing each participant beyond their mental limits to reach their maximum physical potential.
Alexis’s class style is unrivaled. It has an intensity that pushes every rider to work their hardest and uses a rhythmic playlist that includes R&B and hip hop, and definitely won’t be found anywhere else. She treats everyone like family and greets them by name. Some have described her classes as cathartic, purifying, and healing. They walk out embodying her messages, such as “every struggle turns to strength,” “if they beat you to the finish line, it’s because you let them get in your head,” and most importantly “everyone has a story that must be validated.”
Justin “Chook” Madry, is an avid runner and co-owner of High 5’s restaurant in New London, CT. Justin began his fitness profession and lifestyle only a few years ago, and has since become an expert. Toward the end of 2016, he started running one mile at a time and less than a year later he was beating his personal best in multiple marathons. Justin added spin to his cross- training routine and loved it so much that pursued his certification within three months. He came to Devine City Cycle with a passion for exercise and motivating others to believe in their physical ability and reach their goals. Now as a newer member of DCC’s team, he is sharing his ability to train others to pull out that inner athlete as he has done for himself. His class styles incorporate amazing playlists, speed, and endurance.
