Ali on the Run Show Episode 311: Tunde Oyeneyin, Peloton Instructor

“I said to Robin in my interview, ‘If I get this job, part of my mission will be to tell people to dream and to dream big, and to dream bigger, and to dream often.’ Because if this could happen for me, a daughter of immigrant parents, girl who struggled with her weight, girl who struggled with her confidence…to be one of the faces of one of the largest companies in the world, the largest connected fitness platform in the world… If I can say that that was my story, then anything can happen for any person at any time.

If you’re a Peloton fan, you know Tunde Oyeneyin. She’s the ultra-inspiring makeup artist turned cycling superstar whose journey to podium fame has been filled with highs, lows, twists, turns, and a whole lot of passion, persistence, and manifestation. On this episode, Tunde shares that adventure, talking about everything from the weight-loss journey that led her to the fitness world, to how she saw her future play out during a flash vision one day, to how she — eventually! — got the job at Peloton. Plus, she reflects on that recent (iconic!) Beyoncé ride, on being a Black woman in the fitness industry in 2020, and on her poignant and powerful S.P.E.A.K. series.
