Pre-workout ritual: "I meditate, say a prayer of gratitude and protection for myself, and take a moment to bless anyone that may take the class, bless my production crew, and open myself up to receive universal energy and wisdom."
Best workout partner: "I have been training three times per week with my teammate Andy Speer [Peloton strength training specialist, Tread & Strength instructor] for the past two years — virtually during the pandemic — and I wouldn't trade these sessions for anything."
Go-to workout: "[Speer] designs my strength program to support the work I do on the Bike and Tread at Peloton. By incorporating strength training into my routine, I find that I am more conditioned and stronger in my classes, and I'm able to support and balance any repetitive movement patterns that come from lots of riding or running."
Favorite workout class: "I think Denis Morton's yoga classes are the most cathartic and healing I have ever taken. Rebecca Kennedy is my best friend, so I love running and training with her because I get to 'hang out' with her, and she kicks my ass. I also take Adrian Williams's classes so I can tease him for being so silly and sexy, and to make sure he gives me the appropriate shoutouts I deserve for being his friend."
Current workout goal: "My personal workout goal for the last three years has been to grow a bigger butt! And while she's gotten stronger and a little more round, she's still petite. The truth is, being strong, pain free, and preventing injury and aging is what matters to me. Also, believe it or not, I am working on strengthening my hands as a means of preventing arthritis."
Workout recovery: "Off days from training still include lots of stretching, physical therapy, and/or a massage, and I am currently obsessed with my sauna blanket. I recommend listening to your body and honoring the messages."
