Jessa Nootbaar

Jessa Nootbaar is grateful and ecstatic to be a part of the JustRide instructor team. After returning home to the East Bay in Fall 2020, she knew it was time to take her love of spin to the next step. Jessa has been a dedicated rider since skeptically trying her first spin class in 2017 and has dreamed of taking the podium since then. She aims to not take herself too seriously and bring you lots of laughs alongside a challenging workout. Her playlists incorporate pop remixes, alt pop, rap/hip hop, and 2000s throwbacks, and she loves any theme ride that begins as a joke (think: Early Justin Bieber vs. One Direction, Frat Party, or Middle School Dance). Jessa received her AFAA Group Fitness Instructor Certification in August 2021 and feels passionately about body neutrality, mindfulness, and self-compassion. When she’s not on a bike, Jessa is meditating, taking a pilates class, going to the farmer’s market, or eating a vegan & gluten-free meal (she has been vegan since 2011!).
