In anticipation of Ally Love joining the team we want to dive deeper into how she found herself doing what she loves the most. Get to know her even more below and why it’s important for her to inspire through sweat.
Where did you grow up and how did you get into fitness?
I’m from Miami, Florida. I was a dancer and moved to NYC for college and graduated from Fordham University with a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts. Soon after college I was exposed to the fitness scene through hot yoga. I fell in love with the different types of ways to be active and stay in shape. It became accessible post college because I actually could afford to explore the luxury.
What are you most excited about joining the Peloton team?
Meeting the riders. I love connecting through social media! I’m looking forward to connecting with different people across the country and world through fitness.
What drives you?
Love. While it’s such a vast word, I live a healthy lifestyle, give my best, and reach for the greatest opportunity all for those that I love, those that love me and those around me who I encounter, inspire, encourage, and those I can affect positively.
Are you excited about getting to coach people from all across the country?
Extremely! Connecting to a community via sweat is what I live for!
What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?
I have a weakness for doughnuts and I don’t drink coffee – I don’t like it!
What kind of music has most influenced you?
KPop, Trap music, and Caribbean music (soca, reggae, reggaeton).
Who inspires you?
- Hannah Bronfman
- Robin Arzon
- Stephen Colbert
- Serena Williams
- Michelle Obama
- Remi Ishizuka
What are your favorite motivational techniques you use while coaching?
Every ride is a game and a race. I don’t take training lightly, because we train like it’s the race and race like we’re training.
How do you motivate yourself?
I constantly remind myself that the only person preventing me from being better, from ever becoming my best, is myself. The best thing to do right away is get moving!
Pro Tip – Dressing like an athlete plays a roll in competing. Preparation for race day includes style just as much as functionality. Find a way to not compromise either of those things!
