Head Peloton Instructor Robin Arzón Is Pregnant Again
Robin Arzón is expecting her second child!
The beloved Peloton instructor shared the news today on the set of Live with Kelly and Ryan. While walking Seacrest through one of her workouts, the host asked Arzón if this was one of the exercises she did while she was pregnant, to which the fitness superstar responded, “Well, funny you should ask because I’m pregnant! I’m currently pregnant with my second!”
The vice president of fitness programming for Peloton is already mom to daughter Athena, who, at 22 months old, is thrilled to be becoming a big sister. “She kisses my belly and says hi to the baby,” Arzón told People in a special interview. “We definitely keep including her as part of this whole process because I want her to feel like she’s part of it because she definitely is.”
A marathon runner, Peloton instructor and all-around fitness buff, Arzón was open with her decision to work out while pregnant with Athena and hopes to keep the movement going during her second pregnancy. “I really believe in maintaining activity through pregnancy and finding a ‘power posse’ with which to do it,” she told Seacrest.
The self-proclaimed “professional bar raiser,” talked with The Bump during her first pregnancy about how she hopes to push women to dismiss arbitrary limitations and embrace what works and feels good for them during their pregnancy.
“It feels like we are ill-preparing women by sending the message that they should only be taking long walks and kicking their feet up if they are able to do more,” adding that when it comes to finding the motivation to stay active, “It’s important to acknowledge how we feel without indulging it."
"Remember you can always modify the intensity of the workout, the length, or your expectations entirely. If you just say, ‘for ten minutes I am going to move more than I was sitting on my couch or lying in my bed’ that can feel like a real win.”
Not only is each workout during pregnancy a little win, but Arzón believes that staying active throughout this period really helps her achieve her goal of “protecting my peace and really owning my no” this time around.
“During pregnancy, I find that it’s even more important to carve out time for my workouts and even more important for me to focus on sleep and fuel and protecting my peace. I want to feel like myself as much as possible when there are plenty of days where my body is just doing its own thing," Arzón told People
