How do you transform plateaus into launching pads? How do you turn your inner critic into an advocate? And most of all, how do you use your voice—even when it’s shaky?

To help us answer these questions, the inspiring and highly energetic self-proclaimed ambassador of sweat and swagger is back for her fourth appearance on the podcast.

Enter Robin Arzón.

A former corporate lawyer with degrees from NYU and Villanova Law, Robin transformed herself into a global fitness icon and everybody’s favorite Peloton instructor—the company where she also holds the title of Vice President of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor. In 2020 Robin was named one of the most influential people on Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40 list.

In addition, Robin is a two-time New York Times bestseller of Shut Up And Run, and her latest book, Strong Mama. Finally, she recently launched a Master Class on all things mental strength.

After a six-year break, this force of nature returns for her fourth appearance on the show—and does not disappoint.

“Pay attention to whispers that become roars.”


In addition to catching up on her life since we last sat down, today we discuss:

  • the hows and whys of developing mental strength;
  • the importance of unapologetically owning your story;
  • how to approach pre and post-natal fitness;
  • how to say no to what doesn’t serve you and own your ‘yeses’;
  • navigating life pivots and beginning a fitness journey; and
  • many other topics.

I adore Robin. She never fails to ignite the best in us all. If this conversation leaves you inspired, there is more where that came from in RRP #99, RRP #137 & RRP #230.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. As always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
