Getting to Ro’ Kimberly
At Rocycle we’re all about Mind Body Music, but, just as important is the fact that we’re a family. So, to make sure each class is not just a party but a reunion, we’d like to introduce some of our Ro’Regulars. One of our Rocycle devotees, Kimberly Fransens, may just love music more than we do, and she always brings her sparkling energy to class. Wondering how this Voice of Holland star stocks her fridge or how she came to Rocycle? Well read on to find out all about one of our favourite riders.
Hi Kimberly! We’re thrilled to get to Ro’ you a bit better and share your story. Tell us a bit about you.
I am Kimberly Fransens, I’m 26 years old and living in the amazing city of AmsterdamJ. I am a singer working on my musical career 24/7. Right now I am in The Voice of Holland, team Lil Kleine. It’s so amazing and dreams are really coming true.
That is pretty damn cool. We’d love to know how you came to Rocycle.
One of my best friends took me to one of our friend Martijn’s classes, and I was addicted immediately.
We can’t blame you; it is pretty addicting. Could you tell us about how Rocycle is helping you prepare for The Voice of Holland?
I try to Rocycle 2 or 3 times a week. It obviously helps me to get and stay fit. My condition is better than ever, and that really helps me have lots energy when I am on stage. Mentally, it really helps me too. 45 minutes focusing only on myself is awesome in this busy period.
It’s great that you can take those 45 minutes to yourself, but do you ever get your friends or family involved?
I take all my friends with me to Rocycle. It’s almost like a girl’s night out haha!
It truly is a party on a bike. When you’re here partying with us, do you have a favourite instructor?
I LOVE Melinda’s classes. The way she puts some dance moves in it? Perfect. Also Rowen is one of my favourites. I knew her already before going to her classes, and she is amazing. Such good spirit and vibe. She really gets me very motivated.
And what about your favourite move on the bike?
I just love an energetic song with some tap backs. It’s like dancing on a bike!
Totally! Now we often wear the same things to class over and over again. Do you have a Rocycle uniform?
I always wear just leggings and a sport bra. It gets so sweaty, so I try to wear as little as possible haha!
It’s almost like hot yoga in there. Now would you say you’re more of an early bird or a night owl?
Definitely a night owl. In the morning I am one big mess. Someone really has to kick me out of bed.
But maybe a great class with Melinda might motivate you? Haha! Is there anything we can always find in your fridge?
Sparkling water and chocolate!
The perfect combination. Speaking of the perfect combination, if you were an instructor, what kind of playlist would you concoct for your classes?
A mix of techno and catchy, poppy hip hop songs!
Sounds pretty groovy to us! Do you have a favourite healthy hotspot in Amsterdam?
I love the juices from Juice Brothers. I go there very often!
A juice is one of the best things to refuel with after class. Can you tell us something most people don’t know about you?
A lot of people think I always sing in the shower, but a little secret is I never do that. I love the silence when I’m at home.
A little peace and quiet never hurt anybody! Alright, final question: what does Rocycle mean to you?
A lot! It gives me a happy feeling about myself, and I feel a lot more confident and ready to hit the stage! <3
