The Peloton Instructors Share Their Beyoncé Series Outfits — Get Ready to Fall Crazy in Love
When I first started taking Peloton classes, I was quite honestly amazed by the workout outfits the instructors put together, prompting me to quiz them on how they get dressed for the spotlight. But this far into social distancing at home, I feel like a Peloton digital app veteran, and I expect these guys to come ready to sweat in full glam — especially when they're teaching one of the themed classes.
The latest in Peloton's Artist Series (where you'll find the likes of Alicia Keys, Prince, and Britney Spears music to choose from) is Beyoncé. I would say these classes need no introduction, since I'm sure you know her explosive songs are set up for insane power sprints on the tread and pushes on the bike, but Beyoncé's partnership with Peloton is more than that. Beyoncé and Peloton donated free two-year membership access to students across 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), encouraging them on their fitness journeys and laying the foundation for runs, boot camps, rides, body strength, yoga, and meditation, all inspired by her live album Homecoming.
Naturally, Tunde Oyeneyin, Chelsea Jackson Roberts, Robin Arzón, Ally Love, and Jess Sims came ready to slay in full wardrobe, including dramatic jewelry and extremely impressive hairstyles, which were not in any way styled or directed by Beyoncé but certainly paid respect to her own iconic costumes throughout history, along with the playlists chosen by the instructors. Most importantly, all five women used their Peloton stage as a platform to remind users how Beyoncé has helped the Black community through activism. If that's not enough of a reason to show up in fishnet tights, body chains, and heaps of pearls that weigh at least a full extra pound, what is?
Ahead, get all the details on how these incredible Peloton workout outfits came to life, straight from Oyeneyin, Jackson Roberts, Arzón, Love, and Sims. As they say repeatedly throughout their classes: this Beyoncé series has made history, and the costumes are certainly part of the equation.
