Yesterday was a busy day between appointments, volunteering and a friends birthday party. Between everything I was able to come home do a 30min spin, jump in the shower, grab a banana and head back out. Love my @onepeloton and @robinnyc rides are incredible, definitely kept me going for a late night. #onepeloton #peloton #swagger #hipsback #headupcrownon #robinnyc #spinning #sweating #healthyliving #cardio #cardioworkout #coreworkout #legworkout #workout #30minuteworkout #cardio✔️ #nc #topsailbeach #busyday #coreworkouts #cardiotraining #workoutclass #workout? #timetoworkout
Robin Arzón is one of Peloton's star presenters. The company's vice president of programming gave a pretty interesting interview to the New York Times yesterday breaking down her typical week. There's a lot of activity, a lot of intensity and a few fascinating dietary choices.
Arzón is a vegan who says she drinks 3.75 litres of water a day. She says starts each Monday with three different forms of hydration - none of which involve coffee - including one 17-ingredient smoothie.
If you're looking for a new approach to Monday morning, have a gander at what Arzón is consuming:
6.05am: a glass of room-temperature filtered water with a dash of sea salt, a quarter lemon and splash of apple cider vinegar
7.05am: a Cup of Onnit King Tea (ideally purple Kenyan blend)
8.00am: a 17-ingredient smoothie featuring vegan protein powder, magnesium, Athletic Greens, aloe vera, chlorophyll, glutamine, B.C.A.A.s, fresh kale/spinach, matcha powder, baobab, maca, nut butter, cacao nibs, chia seeds, moringa, water, ice.

Anyone looking for a radical new approach to starting the week might be interested in the above - and note, it all starts by getting up at 6am. And if you're considering investing in some Peloton kit, you might be interested in this video, which shows Arzón at work.
