Frances H. Mikuriya
Director & Founder - Body Machine Performance Studio
Founder of SpinAddikts™ and TRX Master Instructor & TRX Black Rank Coach
Frances personifies drive. She has real passion and commitment for all she does whether in the fields of fitness performance training or architectural design.
Coming from a strong sports background, originally as a competitive swimmer at an early age in Taipei, Frances then went to Austin, Texas to study architecture before moving to New York and San Francisco, where she became one of the top indoor cycling and group exercise instructors with a loyal following.
In London she similarly quickly developed a strong and loyal following from her distinctive style of indoor cycling and meticulous coaching. Clients noticed an intensity and level of experience that was of another calibre. Frances's approach to training is based upon the most up-to-date research in the fields of sports and fitness to attain maximum results for her clients. All of her sessions, whether it is in indoor cycling, TRX or one-to-one personal training emphasize the importance of correct form and proper technique.
In 2004, she launched SpinAddikts™ - the pioneer private indoor cycling group in London.
In the course of her training, she was a frequent visitor to the TRX Headquarters - the TRX Training Centre in San Francisco. Frances realized that a TRX purpose-built facility like the one in San Francisco would benefit London and decided to bring the same level of expertise in coaching and the ultimate training experience to clients here.
Work out in an extraordinary space where exceptional architecture and fitness combine.
