Description

“Fitness Flipped,” a Peloton Studios Original, is where we flip the script on all the things we think we know about fitness. Each week Peloton Instructor, athlete, author & host Tunde Oyeneyin will sit down with some of the most interesting experts and personalities from the world of fitness and beyond (Olympians! Musicians! Sociologists! Comedians! Actors!) to challenge and transform some of our own ideas about health, strength and mental wellness, and maybe even ourselves. What does it really mean to be strong? Does competition actually have anything to do with winning? Is the most important thing about pushing hard actually rest? Together, we’ll find out.

Every Tuesday we will dive deep on a topic and on Friday you will hear a story from a Peloton Member about their lived experience.

Endurance Member Story: What Do You Care About and What Are You Going To Do About it
00:16:34

Research tells us that a key part of enduring and persevering is envisioning the future. And a big part of that envisioning is hope. Hope for the future you want. Peloton Member Jess Morales Rocketto is an organizer for social change. She thinks of her job as motivating people into their purpose: What do you care about? Why do you care about it and what are you going to do about it? She’s often pretty sure that something is going to push her past her limits and that it will be difficult but she does it anyway - and that is endurance.

Endurance, Flipped: Leaning Into the Discomfort Feat. Robin Arzón

Endurance is both physical and emotional. We build physical endurance so that we can keep going in the face of everything that life throws at us. We practice perseverance so that we can keep pushing towards the life that we dream of. So today we're going to talk about how to train for our discomfort and then how to create a clear vision for getting there. Peloton Instructor Robin Arzón joins us and talks about what it takes to run 27 marathons - how much of it is in your mentality. Dr. Carla Meijen - sports psychologist - takes us on a deep dive of our relationship to pain.

Body Image, Flipped: How We See Ourselves Feat. Mustard
00:31:47

This episode talks about weight & body image. We understand this can be a sensitive and challenging topic. If this is a topic that you find triggering, we suggest listening to another episode of Fitness Flipped. Tunde and her guests are always here to support you! 

 

This is the most challenging theme of the season! Body image. It’s locked into body ideals (which change), pop culture (which changes), and broader society (which always wants us to change). But it never takes into account that bodies also change!  We’re asking a lot of questions about where the concept of body ideals come from and what it means to how we perceive ourselves. Professor Nancy Chen, joins us to go deep on the history and how trends of body ideals change over time. Mustard also joins us for a conversation about starting his journey to finding his physical strength.  How we perceive our bodies sometimes becomes our greatest obstacle to growth. We’re here to help it become our strength.

 

Today’s episode features Professor Nancy Chen. You can watch her TED Talk Here. The episode also features Mustard  - @mustard.

Comparison Member Story: A Grandma Knows How To Live Right
00:13:12

#PelotonGrandma for the win! Shirley Beard of Seattle has spent a lifetime figuring out what it means to be exactly who she is meant to be.

Comparison, Flipped: Comparing Yourself With Yourself Feat. Emma Lovewell
00:30:42

You can’t compare your insides to somebody else’s outsides! In our age of anxiety and social media, we all engage in sometimes subtle, and sometimes overt, comparison all day long — to our peers, to our coworkers, to our old high school crushes, to the biggest celebrities on the planet. Let’s flip that around! Peloton Instructor Emma Lovewell joins us to talk about how to find inspiration from her peers instead of comparing herself. Princeton University Psychologist Susan Fiske, author of “Envy Up, Scorn Down”, joins us to talk about how we change our target of comparison to be ourselves vs ourselves instead of ourselves vs everyone else.

Strength, Member Story: From Diagnosis to Finding Community
00:10:13

This week we're flipping the idea of what it actually means to be strong. Sometimes our fitness of the body, mind, of *EVERYTHING* can be challenged. Our very foundation of our strength is challenged. So how do you gain your strength back after you've had your entire world turned upside down? Our member Robin J Price who rides with us down in Virginia had to redefine strength for herself when she was diagnosed with aggressive cancer just before the pandemic. Robin found strength in herself, and not only that, she found strength in her Peloton community.

Strength, Flipped: Pain Today Can Be Power Tomorrow Feat. Scout Bassett
00:31:02

Sometimes when you feel your weakest, you may actually be your strongest. This week, we're talking about how we redefine what it means to be strong, and more importantly, how we develop and practice strength. Over the past decade, evolving conversations around health, wellness, and fitness have ushered in new definitions of not only what it means to be “healthy,” but what it means to be “strong.” Our incredibly strong guest is world-record holding Paralympic track and field athlete Scout Bassett. Scout talks with us to talk about the strength that comes from struggle, not in spite of it. Neuroscientist Daya Grant also joins us to discuss what mental strength can do for us physically. By training our minds in resilience, goal setting, focus and more we are able to perform at the very highest levels.


Today’s episode features Scout Bassett- @scoutbassett and Dr. Daya Grant @dr.dayagrant.

Stress, Member Story: A NICU Doctor Finds Her People
00:11:58

A key to combating stress? Finding your people. Frontline workers have been holding us up these past two years - so what do they do to take care of themselves and prevent stress and burnout during this incredibly challenging time? During covid, female physicians have used Peloton en masse to manage their stress and chase serotonin. Dr. Jagu Anadkat, a neonatal intensive care doctor in St. Louis, organized a group of her coworkers across many departments to ride together once a week. They have held each other up, made each other laugh, and found that some sweat and community goes a long way.
