Growing up in Anderson, SC, Shannon Cagle was competitive in swimming, cross-country, and volleyball throughout high school. After attending the University of New Mexico on a swimming scholarship, she used her Business Management and Marketing degree to work in pharmaceutical and medical sales, management, and training. Her professional career was put on hold when she decided to marry her husband Johnny, and they have a daughter, Nell. Johnny also has a son, Newt, and the Cagle family resides on Sullivan's Island.
Shannon has always been physically active, but feels like PrimeTime has provided her with a regimen that has brought her more results than she could achieve on her own. Participating in Boot Camp and PrimeTime Spin since 2006, Shannon became inspired to teach and went on to receive her Johnny G Spin Certification in the summer of 2009.
