Peloton instructor Robin Arzón is expecting, and she’s taking her fit family along for the ride. The cult-favorite fitness app has recently launched a series of prenatal classes led by Arzón. These range from cycling to strength classes, and they offer safe yet effective workouts for pregnant women.

In an Instagram post, she says, “My entire training philosophy is supported by research. Resistance-based strength and interval training prepare women for an empowered birth (of all kinds) and the daily activities of motherhood. These classes are targeted to the pregnant athlete with foundational content for all trimesters and all levels."

When you’re delivering a baby, it’s like running a marathon. Having improved fitness going into delivery will not only make the delivery experience easier but also help with recovery.
— Heather Jeffcoat, DPT

Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, is a Peloton user and physical therapist, and she believes this was a smart move.

Encouraging women to stay active during pregnancy is essential to prepare them for delivery and postpartum activities. As a Peloton user, I find the instructors across the board to be clear, and I anticipate that they will provide modifications and encourage heart rate monitoring to keep mom and baby safe."

Peloton memberships are available for $12.99 per month (digital) or $39 per month (all-access). The former—a digital membership—does not require Peloton equipment.

At first my husband and I didn't know what to do, we didn't know what the issues were or how to overcome it. Being born and raised in Armenia and being Christian I wasn't that open about talking to sex with others and so it wasn't easy to seek help. But eventually I went to an Ob-Gyn and luckily she knew about the medical...

      My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!
