How One Mother Realized Community Made All the Difference
Updated: Sep 14, 2020
Working Motherhood is a journey of physical and emotional strength between your
children and yourself. As Mothers, we each have our own unique strengths, weaknesses, and
story to tell. Today, I would like to share the beginning of my Working Motherhood journey and
how being a part of an empowering fitness community has provided me with physical and
One of my personal goals was to follow a consistent fitness routine. When I was 6
months post-partum, I began to rebuild my fitness routine. I decided to join a digital fitness
Community, the Peloton Community. The Peloton Community provides live and on-demand
fitness classes with fun, energetic and motivating Fitness Instructors My main purpose for
joining was to participate in flexible at home workouts in the comfort of my own home. After
two weeks back into exercise, I started to regain some of my energy back. I started out slow
and began with a low impact fitness routine of 2-3 workouts per week.
Two months went by and I continued to build my strength physically and emotionally. I
was ready to progress up to the next level which was Intermediate level. I had my good days
and bad days just like anyone does but bottom line, I stayed consistent and gave it my all during
each of my workouts. Some days would be more challenging than others however, the energy
and motivation that the Peloton Community provided helped me learn to trust my body and
love myself just the way I am.
Fast forward to present day, I have stayed consistent with my fitness routine for almost
3 years now. I have completed 467 cycling rides, 68 strength workouts and lost 25+ lbs. I have
not only gained physical strength, but also self confidence that I did not believe was possible.
My fitness routine with the Peloton Community has been the most incredibly rewarding
experience and I am proud of every moment of it! Having a consist fitness routine made me a
stronger Mom from the inside out. I encourage you to find a Fitness Community that
encourages you to show up for yourself, the sky is the limit!
