Director of Client Relations Chelsea Bio Pic


Director of Client Experience

Chelsea has been teaching at the Wall since 2019 but has been a member of the Wall community before that. Specializing in Barre and Spin, you’re guaranteed to get a heart pumping workout when attending one of her classes. She received her Barre certification through Exhale and Rebounding Certification through Bellicon.

Chelsea is an East Falls native who been in the restaurant business for almost a decade, she found fitness in 2013 but always wanted to take her passion to the next level and instruct others. You’ll catch her walking around the neighborhood with her dog Penny and boyfriend Francisco, tending bar at Taqueria Amor or in the studio working up the next days adventure. Expect a fast-paced class jamming out to Bad Bunny, Daddy Yankee and EDM tunes.

Trainer Emily Bio Pic



Emily has been an instructor at the Wall since the summer of 2017. She loves teaching indoor cycling and creates fun and challenging classes featuring a wide variety of killer music, including obscure 90s alternative remixes and plenty of heavy beat jock jams (think Brad Lidge coming out from the bullpen in the 9th inning in game 5 of the 2008 World Series – oh also, she’s obsessed with the Phillies). When she’s not kicking butts in the spin room, she’s working in student affairs at Haverford College and spending time with her daughter Glenn and husband Dave!

Trainer Cait Bio Pic



Lawyer by day, fitness instructor by night, cat mom 24/7/365, Cait has been teaching at The Wall since 2019. Using her extensive background in ballet, Cait teaches barre with a ballet focus on form and functional fitness. Cait also loves teaching spin, spin & sculpt, cycling & lower body burn and TRX fusion. You can expect her playlists to be filled with female hip hop artists and a side of millennial nostalgia.

Trainer Sarah Bio Pic



Growing up as a runner, Sarah discovered barre as a compliment to her high-impact fitness regimen. She fell in love with the energetic and dynamic workouts that translated strength into everyday movements.

As a self-proclaimed lover of burpees and long holds, you can expect to get your heart pumping and legs shaking in any of Sarah’s classes. Come have fun and challenge your limits to what you think is possible!

Trainer Elaina Bio Pic



Elaina fell in love with The Wall as a client in 2017 when she was new to Philadelphia and looking for a community. Fast forward a few years and she became an instructor so she could help others find a sense of community they may be looking for, while growing stronger, and having fun. Her playlists contain everything from remixes of today’s hits to songs that predate the iPhone and anything that has a heavy beat.

    Since I discovered The Wall Cycling Studio back in the Fall of 2014, it has completely changed my life. Fast forward to 2017 and I just completed my 3 year anniversary. I’m 40 pounds lighter, feel good, and thoroughly enjoy the challenge in every class I go to trying to top the previous class numbers. My favorite of course is spin class, but I also enjoy spin & sculpt and yoga classes.

    The Wall is my absolute favorite place in Philly to work out! All of the instructors are friendly, motivating, and challenge you in every single class.

    My favorite place to workout on Main Street. It’s the best cycling experience I’ve ever had-and my favorite place to be at 5am!
