Bobbe Shire RIP

Bobbe Shire coached over at the Gardens in Laurel, Maryland and was a well known Spin coach. Several times I wrestled with the urge to go see if I could book her for a few coaching sessions but hesitated because I didn't feel that my skating was good enough for such an advanced instructor. I missed my chance and ironically my name is George!  iCoahskating has made this iconic video of Bobbe coaching available for viewing free of charge, at least for now.  Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for sharing this video, George. I can see the wisdom, humor, and love of teaching that marks a wonderful coach. I know she will be sorely missed!

  2. I was fortunate to have worked with Bobbe twice in the past 2 years. She was such a delight and it was obvious how much she enjoyed helping skaters of all ages and levels. I was so sad to hear about her passing. The skating world definitely lost a trailblazer and genius coach.

  3. She does seem like a nice coach by the video. I'm sorry you missed your chance to work with her. I'll think of the potential spin energy now as 'George.'
