Getting #FijiFit with Momtrends and Peloton!

bxmama fijifit signOver the last year or so I’ve been trying to make healthier choices and I’m always looking for new and fun ways to stay active so when MomTrends invited BronxMama and some other awesome mom bloggers to join them for a 30 minute cycling class at Peloton to unveil Fiji Waters new look, I thought “what the heck!” and jumped at the opportunity.

I geared up in my underutilized work out clothes, dropped my kid off at camp and headed to Peloton studio in Chelsea. I was so excited until I got there and got my special cycling shoes–that’s when ish got real. Thankfully I wasn’t alone in that feeling.

I’ve always enjoyed Fiji, there’s just something about it that makes me feel fancy! *pinkys up* But I have to admit that the shorter, square shaped bottles are a bit awkward at times–they don’t really fit in cup holders at the gym or in the car. Problem solved! These new, tall, slim 700 ml bottles with the beautiful hibiscus flower on the front fit everywhere and I was SUPER grateful to already have one in the holder of my bike at Peloton to keep me nice and hydrated because in those short 30 minutes our instructor Cody Rigsby had us sweating so much that we definitely needed to replenish those electrolytes.

The class was definitely a challenge for someone like me who really never exercises but I did my best and still enjoyed it. I love that the lights are turned down and the music is great, I felt more like I was at a sexy lounge instead of cycling class which kept me going and having an instructor as encouraging as Cody helped too–he pushed us to keep going and make that time count, to do it for ourselves and you know what? We made it!!! It was actually amazing and I think I can definitely do another 30 minute class which Peloton has at 1:30pm on Fridays. Shout out to the awesome staff at Peloton for helping me adjust my seat and clip into the peddles!

After some yummy oatmeal and fruit during brunch and of course some delicious Fiji water, great conversation with fellow mom bloggers and peloton staff, I was sent on my way with a cute Fiji gym bag, snacks and of course several bottles of Fiji Water which my family and I have loved having in our fridge for on the go in these dog days of summer.

  1. I’ve started keeping track of my diet through my fitbit food tracker. It’s really opened my eyes to calories I’m taking in.


    1. Great job! Fit its look great. I myself use the my fitness pal app and it’s quite eye opening.


  2. I have been making an effort to bring lunch to work as well as going to the track either before or after work to get a few miles in. My fitbit helps me keep track of my steps 12,000 is my goal.


    1. I’m so bad at packing lunch! Keep up the great work, it pays off.


  3. I have a newborn so exercise has been tough to fit into my schedule but we have been taking walks every day to get in a little cardio and I also recently discovered a farmers market in my neighborhood every Friday so we’ve been getting fresh fruits and veggies.


    1. Walks are great! Little by little. Love farmers markets!


  4. I have started drinking more water and moving more by walking after taking the kids to school

  5. I’ve stopped drinking soda, make sure all our meals have one or more vegetables and I joined a FB accountability fitness group!


    1. Cutting soda is a great start! We love seltzer at home. Keep up the good work!


  6. I changed my family’s diet to organics and non-gmo, drinking water and fresh juice…no more soda or bottle juice at home.


  7. Trying to stay fit has been challenging for me due to some personal situation in my life. But I have been a bit more conscious of what I am eating. Being an emotional eater I’ve been trying my best to stay away from comfort foods. It’s been a struggle but keeping a food journal has helped me greatly. Seeing what I’m ingesting and the calories keeps on track.
