Fluidride would like to welcome Dave Thoms! Dave recently joined Fluidride as a part-time Instructor. Dave is FIT Level 1 and Level 2 certified, has been shadow-teaching Fluidride classes for over a year, and has been a long-time student of Fluidride. He is particularly passionate about helping coach people who have struggled to improve their riding because of fear, long-term habits, or other limits. Dave says “There’s nothing quite like breaking through to a new level of skill and possibility, and getting to be a part of that moment is why I love to teach.” When he’s not riding or teaching, he applies that same philosophy and his many years working in finance to building his company to help people improve their financial health.
Dave is available most weekends, and is often available for evening sessions during the week.
