Get to know Peloton’s Newest Instructors: Denis Morton and Emma Lovewell!

Where did you grow up and how did you get into fitness?

Emma: I grew up on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. I think that being from a small island you have to be very active because there are not enough kids in the town to only do one activity. There was the band, theater, chorus, sports, dance and I did all of them! In college, I studied Chinese and Communications, but I was also taking a lot of dance classes. At one point, I took an internship in NYC where I worked at a theater in the marketing department. I then worked and rehearsed with an all female hip hop dance company in Brooklyn. I went on a couple dance auditions that I ended up booking and realized, “Wait, I could do this professionally? This is amazing!”, so I graduated and moved to NYC to be a professional dancer. Over the years, dance and fitness starting merging for me. I started teaching dance at a gym, and then through that I found indoor cycling and just loved it because to me it reminded me of dance, but on a bike!

Denis: I grew up in central Florida where I was a beach kid. Some of my first memories are body surfing on my dad’s back with my arms wrapped around his neck. I never pursued fitness, I just always wanted to be able to move! We didn’t have television or electricity after sundown. We had to be outside so I was always climbing trees and playing sports and games with my brother. When I was 22, yoga gave me something that was so challenging and fun that I wanted to be better at it. I worked hard and did yoga every day for 16 months. Yoga led me down the road to cycling and by that point I was already committed to athleticism and looking for creative outlets. I think Peloton is a really good platform for reclaiming athleticism. You know, we grow up and we climb trees and we row boats and we run in circles in all these organized sports and then gradually as we start to emphasize school, work, responsibility and family we de-emphasize physical activity. I like to think that every day is another opportunity to reclaim your athleticism and I’m so excited to connect with so many members on that.

What do you love most about teaching?

Emma: I like connecting with people and seeing their transformations. I love to see them change physically and mentally and just being able to be a part of that is inspiring to me!

Denis: What I like most is the unexpected feedback that I get. Even after doing it for over thirteen years, I’ve heard a lot from people about how it changed their life, their day, or that it made them see themselves in a different way.

Why are you most excited to join the Peloton team?

Emma: The Peloton community is already so big, and it’s something I have seen grow exponentially for the past few years. It’s so exciting to be a part of a community that’s already thriving! It’s also exciting to be at the forefront of something so innovative. I love hearing about people creating new things that help more people. This is one of those things that has never really been done before so to be a part of it is awesome.

Denis: I’ve been able to reach 50 people at a time for years. Peloton gives me the opportunity to reach hundreds of thousands instead!

What can riders expect in your class?

Emma: I love playing music that makes me want to dance and that motivates me! If I am going to ask you for a very big push then I am going to give you very intense music. I like my class to be a sensory experience through the music, lights, and the energy. I like everything to blend together, so you get a “journey” to explore. However long the class is, there is definitely a beginning, middle and end that we all experience together.

Denis: I want riders to be physically challenged and I like to think that they’re going to have themselves pushed to that focal point where everything else has to fall away.

Are you excited about getting to coach people from all across the country?

Emma: I think from living in a few different places I’ve learned that fitness is a universal language but it’s also very different for everybody. Everyone is going through their own journey and I think it’s so exciting to be able to reach a wide net of people but yet still be cognizant of their own personal fitness journeys.

Denis: Super excited! To be able to reach so many more people and have those connections and change so many people’s lives is just so thrilling and really humbling.

Who are your heroes?

Emma: My mom! She is originally from Taiwan and she moved to NYC when she was 19 years old. She entered a new culture, a new country, and a new language. She came here and was in business school and then she realized that her true passion was painting and art. Her entire family was angry at her for pursuing art but she still went for it. She started her own gardening business in her 50’s and she is constantly innovating herself and not constrained by social boundaries. She’s the rebel and I am so happy because of that she encourages me to pursue whatever I want. She’s never told me I can’t do anything! More recently she was diagnosed with cancer and that has been a whole new challenge where I have watched her totally conquer it. She has been doing awesome – she’s still gardening and she’s still up and about. Watching her overcome that is pretty impressive; she’s 65 and she keeps going.

Denis: My dad!

What’s your favorite music to work out to?

Emma: My taste in music depends on my mood and what I am doing. There is a definite difference between music that I like to work out to and music that I like to relax to. My workout music is definitely more EDM, rock and hip hop.

Denis: Tupac, Rage Against the Machine and Rihanna.

What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?

Emma: I drive a motorcycle!

Denis: Probably that I live in my head so much!

What are your favorite motivational techniques you use while coaching?

Emma: There is definitely a psychology behind motivating somebody. My biggest inspiration, however, is how I am feeling. When I am coaching myself is when I give coaching. I think, “so what is going to get me going”? What motivates me is something deeper. It’s not just like, “sweat out the margarita”; that doesn’t do it for me. I like to approach things more like, “think about this push or this hill as the biggest obstacle in your life. Are you somebody who gets deterred during difficult times or do you take them on?”. I like to think of it as manipulating your mind into realizing your strengths and realizing that you’re stronger than you probably give yourself credit for.

Denis: I just remind people that you know your comfort zone. You can either stay there or rise; your potential is yours!

How do you motivate yourself?

Emma: I am not going to lie, there are days when I am feeling tired or fatigued either emotionally or physically. But I think about how there are people counting on me to be there so when I think about that, that is my motivation! You know we are not supposed to be alone, I think we are supposed to have connections with people for that reason, we inspire each other and we motivate each other to show up.

Denis: I think of how a lot of people would love to have this day or simply the ability to just move! I mean it really is like it sounds: so basic and simple. Take advantage of what you’re working with in the current moment and set out to accomplish!

What is your pro tip?

Emma: I try to write every morning. I will write for three pages whether it’s, “my dream last night was totally crazy” or, “I don’t know what to say but…”. You end up just vomiting out these thoughts so it clears your head a little and then you get them all out of the way instead of holding onto garbage in your mind.

Denis: Very simple: make sure you take some time for yourself every day!

Rider Story / Wendy Dugan

As part of Peloton’s Mission & Values project, we talked with home rider Wendy Dugan on how the Peloton Community supports and inspires her.

How were you first introduced to Peloton?

The first time I saw Peloton was through an ad on Facebook. As with many advertised products, I was skeptical and I feared buying something inadequate until a colleague stopped by my office and she looked great! She had mentioned that the Peloton bike had helped her reach her fitness goals just after a month – that hooked me!

What’s your favorite part of the workout?

My favorite part of the ride is the start and the finish! That feeling of releasing the stress of the day and the happiness of physical activity is like no other.

Can you describe how the class experience makes you feel?

It makes me feel complete and gives me a sense of accomplishment. As a businesswoman, there is little time for “me time.” Peloton helps me concentrate on myself for 45-60 minutes a day.

Who’s your favorite instructor and why?

I love all the instructors for different reasons and adding DJ John Michael to the ride adds fun to any workout!

Cody is probably my go-to guy for releasing the stress from the work day. He has this way of getting into my mind and soul, almost like he knows what’s going on in my brain. He’s like that encouraging best friend that always brings out the best in me.

Alex is Alex! Chiseled out of stone, taken from Mount Olympus. The gods have blessed Alex with an engine that doesn’t stop. It’s so motivating when he looks into the camera and says, “we started together, we finish together;” he pushes me the hardest!

Jenn, with her rock rides! They always make me feel like I’m hanging with my sister! Steven and Matt’s zone training constantly has me questioning my body’s capabilities and, finally, Robin and Jess are both Peloton women who kick ass!

As we celebrate Pride month, what does #rideproud mean to you?

#RideProud means just that: Ride proud! Pick that chin up; you’re loved for being you! It represents the celebration of our diversity. Watching companies like Peloton step up and lead makes me proud to be part of something so amazing.

What’s your favorite part about the Peloton community?

My favorite part is knowing I’m part of the foundation of a huge empire that has yet to break the surface. Twenty years from now, companies will use Peloton as an example of bringing all walks of life together and allowing their individuality to shine.

How would you describe the inclusivity of the Peloton community?

I have yet to see an organization bring together such a diverse group of people and allow them to shine in their own light! Peloton reaches out to all walks of life. It doesn’t matter what we look like, who we love, where we work, Peloton just brings us all together!

A CLOSER LOOK: OUR DENVER SHOWROOM TEAM

To get to know our Denver group a little more, take a look below at their go-to instructors, why they love working on the team and how they want riders to feel when they clip into their journey with Peloton.

Suzanne

What do you love most about working on the team? The energy and enthusiasm that this team brings to the showroom every day!  There is a passion for the product and to help customers that enter our showroom without fail. Additionally, we are operating as a cohesive unit with everyone willing to help out no matter what the task!

Who’s your favorite instructor and why? Ally Love.  She has a gentle fearless nature which I admire!

How do you want a new rider to feel walking out of the store after just purchasing their bike? I want them to feel empowered as they begin their journey with Peloton.  I want them to feel armed with knowledge of the bike and our services, but to never feel that they are alone if they need additional help.  I want them to know they can count on us in all aspects of the purchase, including afterwards, so that they use our product on a daily basis.

Katie

What do you love most about working on the team? I like educating people about fitness and talking to riders about the Peloton culture. My teammates are super fun as well.

Who’s your favorite instructor and why? I love Robin and Cody.  There is nothing better to me then getting a hard workout and being completely entertained the whole entire time.
Their DJ rides are hands down my favorite.

How do you want a new rider to feel walking out of the store after just purchasing their bike? I want new riders to feel inspired, motivated, and excited about their new purchase and fitness journey.  If you believe it – you can achieve it.  Peloton helps people strive to be their very own best version of themselves.

Nick

What do you love most about working on the team? By far it’s the friendly competition! We are always discussing our latest rides, personal records, and fitness goals. At Peloton we stay in a constant state of learning, growth, and striving to be the best version of ourselves. My team is constantly helping me grow to be the best manager, coach, and to hit new highs in my fitness!

Who’s your favorite instructor? My very first ride was a live DJ ride with Jess King, and I was hooked on DJ John Michael’s grooves and witty comebacks right away! After that, I took Christine and I was blown away at how focused of a workout it was. I always PR with Christine and she helps me break through by mental blocks regarding my fitness.  Although I love all of our instructors, my favorite by far are Alex and Robin! I love Robin’s motivation style. She always seems to know right when I’m about to dial down on my resistance or cadence and always has a “swag” filled one-liner, a rally cry, or the infamous “don’t be basic” quote, to keep me pushing hard. Alex has the BEST playlists by far. He is the coach that inspires you by keeping pace with you during the hardest intervals and always finishes the race with you!

How do you want a new rider to feel walking out of the store after just purchasing their bike? I always want a new home rider to feel a sense of a new beginning, like they are about to embark on a new journey. Whether that means less time commuting to the gym or a class, and more time focused on family or career, or simply being able to set and realize fitness goals. Every new Peloton member should have a sense of excitement and a new start as soon as they leave the showroom!

Jono

What do you love most about working on the team?  I love the community and culture! Coming from big box gyms and other fitness environments, I love seeing the connection of people no matter their beliefs and backgrounds because we all want to better ourselves. Peloton exemplifies that unlike anything I have ever seen “TOGETHER WE RIDE FAR!”

Who’s your favorite instructor? Jenn Sherman! From her awesome music selection to the attitude of forgetting the negative and focus on the task ahead. #TSTM

How do you want a new rider to feel walking out of the store after just purchasing their bike? I want them to feel excited and encouraged to tackle the next mountain in their personal and fitness journey!
