I have a lot of thoughts during my Peloton workouts, including, but not limited to: “The instructor’s workout set — make it mine. Now.” and “How the hell are the coaches still managing to speak through such intense cardio?” That brings me to my latest query: “How often are these instructors actually working out when they’re not teaching classes?” I know I can’t be the only one who’s curious about their daily routines. These people have a job that literally requires them to be on their A-game all the time, so staying hydrated, fueled, and motivated is of the utmost importance. I can’t say I wouldn’t enjoy being pantsless on the couch 99.9 percent of the time I wasn’t recording in the studio.
But when I spoke to Jess King, Peloton cycling instructor, and Anna Greenberg, Peloton yoga and meditation instructor, I quickly realized the Peloton instructor lifestyle is an active one literally all of the time. King and Greenberg took me through their typical schedules, shed light on their meal plans, and even revealed some personal workout goals for 2021.
King wants to deepen her Pilates practice and improve her handstand, while Greenberg’s wellness intentions are a little less specific. “I don’t have a set schedule of what days or how often I do each type of workout. Instead, I like to listen to my body and do what feels good (which always includes rest days of doing absolutely nothing!),” she told POPSUGAR.
Ahead, get to know the ins and outs of King and Greenberg’s workout and healthy lifestyle regimens, and learn the motivational words that keep them strong. Hopefully, these two will inspire you, just as they inspired me, to get active, but also to take this new year day by day and listen to what your body is asking of you.
