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."

— 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.

You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be. It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally...

    • Testimonial by A.B.

      Before I was referred to Heather Jeffcoat I was living in a nightmare. I had been married to my husband for three years and I was suffering from Vaginismus. That all changed when I visited my OBGYN and she said she knew of someone with a great success rate. To be honest I was hesitant at first because my first doctor had already told me that all I needed to do was order dilators from the internet and I should overcome my problem. She was wrong because I had followed the book on how to use the...
