Meet our Ambassador, Robin Arzón. Robin is the New York Times Best Selling author of Shut Up and Run. She fearlessly left behind a successful law career to embark on new adventures in the health and wellness space, and has since reinvented herself into an avid ultra-marathoner and renowned fitness coach. As Vice President of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor at Peloton, she believes that sweat transforms lives, and her story is living proof. Her life’s mission is to redefine, reform, and rethink possibility through movement and greatness is simply the lens through which she operates.
Robin graduated magna cum laude from New York University and Villanova University School of Law. She is a RRCA certified running coach and an NASM certified personal trainer.
We had the chance to ask this inspirational fitness guru, who loves Sproud Unsweetened, some questions about what keeps her going:
Team Sproud: How did your journey lead you to be plant based?
Robin: I feel really strongly that being plant based is better for your body, better for the planet, and better for my performance and recovery as an athlete.
Team Sproud: How did you come to be a fitness instructor?
Robin: I started running in law school as a way to run out trauma. It became a moving meditation for me. As a lawyer, I started running marathons and ultra-marathons so I would literally count down the minutes until I could leave the office and go out for a run or do a workout. Eventually I decided to pursue my passion for fitness full time, and the rest is history. Currently I’m the VP of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor at Peloton.
Team Sproud: How do you stay motivated every day?
Robin: I don’t believe in motivation. Hustlers hunt purpose. As long as you know your why, the how will follow.
Team Sproud: You are an inspiration to so many. Who/what inspires you?
Robin: My mom inspires me. She came to this country as a Cuban refugee and created a successful career for herself out of nothing. Family and legacy are very important to me so I’m determined to honor that.
