The Dynamic Duo

Andrea Austin and Chris Cronick have been fitness professionals for a combined total of nearly 40 years with specific indoor cycling leadership for 18 years. They head up the Twin Cities' most sought after indoor cycling classes with fans and followers alike. Their styles of instructing are very similar and they quickly realized there was no official professional indoor cycling certification available that supports their styles in the market. What did they do? They joined forces to create BeatBoss Indoor Biking; a game changing indoor biking certification for instructors plus indoor biking consulting services for studios and health clubs.


They are two business minded pros who have their fingers on the pulse of past, current, and future trends in indoor cycling out to make a positive impact on the fitness industry one individual at a time. Fitness, passion, and drive combined with 22+ years of marketing, advertising and art direction expertise leads them down only one path...inspirational and unstoppable! 

Andrea Austin 

Leader Among Leaders 

Andrea Austin started in the fitness industry in 1987 wearing leg warmers and spandex teaching high and low impact aerobics. Throughout the years she remained in the industry part time until becoming a full time personal trainer in 2001. Coming from the creative industry as a Creative Director and Graphic Designer, Andrea used her creative thought process to start her own personal training business and uses it in marketing materials for BeatBoss. She has guided hundreds of people in life-changing workouts both one on one and in group settings.


Andrea’s motivation for fitness is on fire because with her guidance, she inspires positive change in the many lives that she touches. Indoor cycling is a true passion of hers and a great way to burn calories for anti-aging benefits. Since ‘87, she has been certified in many methods with a base foundation certification through N.A.S.M.  


When not motivating and educating other's in the fitness industry, Andrea enjoy's volunteering in animal rescue, getting 2 hour massages, and spending time with her family. Andrea is also a National Physique Committee Judge, judging NPC Bodybuilding, Physique, and Bikini Competitions.

Funny childhood fact: She was the captain of the Junior High PomPom girls in North Dakota already leading others in how to hit that beat and perform like a rockstar.

Chris Cronick

Can't Stop, Won't Stop 

People assume Chris Cronick is a strong, healthy girl but there's more than meets the eye. At just 42, she has been hit with a myriad of health issues including: rheumatoid arthritis, lupus SLE, celiac disease, six artificial joint replacements and open heart surgery. Faced with these challenges in the past decade, she was forced to surrender a career in music for which she loved. Chris went from an active, ambitious young woman to disabled and extremely overweight.


With the help of indoor cycling Chris has shed 110lbs+, is a certified Indoor Cycling Instructor, Fitness Coach and Motivational Speaker inspiring others on and off the bike. 


When not motivating and educating others in the fitness industry, Chris enjoy's going to concerts, spending time with friends and family, dancing the night away, cooking, trying new restaurants and rescuing pit bulls.
