Ivonne's Peloton Bike in Ottawa

Peloton Indoor Spin Bike

Since 2020 my Peloton Indoor Bike and the Bike Essentials kit has been my main fitness tool in my condo. Don’t forget your Peloton All-Access monthly Membership. Follow me on OnePeloton and if you see me in a class high-five!

A few months of riding with the Peloton spin shoes I decided it was time for an upgrade. These spin shoes felt bulky and heavy, so in the spirit of not being held back by anything I upgraded to the Nike.

You’ll usually find me online riding in the early morning. If you’re wondering where to start I highly recommend Cody Rigsby.

Nike SuperRep Cycling Shoes

The highly rated Nike SuperRep cycling shoes are the best footwear for indoor  cycling. They form better to the shape of my feet, and they’re much lighter, more breathable, and smaller than the shoes that come with the Peloton Essentials kit. They’re designed for heat and quick movements and also really stylish in pink (or as Nike calls them “Light Arctic Pink/Metallic Copper/Hyper Crimson/Black”. The assembly is super easy but just remember – they don’t come with studs.

How do they fit? Go for one full size up from your regular shoe size.

They’re hard to find but I ordered mine from SportCheck.

Spin Accessories

You’ll need only a few key tools when jumping on your bike. Hydration, high quality ear buds, and a way to monitor your vitals.

Water Bottle - S'well Geode Rose Water Bottle

One of my favourite water bottles – it keeps the water so cold for up to 24 hours! I bought mind from Readi Set Go on Bank Street. I drink the full 17oz in my ride!

Apple - Airpods Pro & Watch

Although my bike came with a set of wired earbuds I opted for wireless noise cancellation. They pair easily, and they sound great!

Apple Watch has been a staple of my life. It lets me know what’s up, including my heart rate and whether I’ve achieved all of my fitness goals for the day, both on and off the bike.

Post Workout Skincare

If you don’t take care of your skin after you work out, the sweat and dirt can cause you to break out. ⁣

After sweating so much and so often my skin needs to be taken care of. ⁣

Here’s what you need to do! ⁣

Wash your face as soon as you’re done working out!! No seriously! Do it ASAP. I recommend using a salicylic acid cleanser. This is the best choice to thoroughly cleanse and dislodge the pores from debris, sweat, and oil to prevent breakouts. I have both a purifying gel cleanser and the acne balancing serum which I alternate.

Next step is the EXFOLIATE!!! I recommend the Bright & Clear Solution by @alumiermdcanada. A refreshing skin conditioning solution that refines skin complexion. Lactic acid and caviar lime gently exfoliate cellular debris to brighten and improve skin texture. Kakadu plum extract offers a boost of vitamin C and arnica with soothing properties, which contributes to the look of healthy skin.⁣

Using a cotton round wipe the face and don’t forget to wipe down the front and back of the neck and chest (for ladies, don’t forget in between the breasts, which can get extra sweaty).⁣

The last step in your skin-care routine should be to HYDRATE! When it comes hydration I like to stick with something that is lightweight and absorbs quickly, such as the Ultimate Boost Serum. It’s a lightweight serum that boosts hydration and enhances the skin’s natural hydrolipid barrier with sodium hyaluronate and niacinamide.

MATRIXYL® Synthe’6® strengthens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ⁣
I lied, there’s one more step. Sunscreen protection is one of the most important steps in any and all skin-care routines. For maximum protection, try the Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42. ⁣

Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42 is a lightweight, non-comedogenic, quick-drying physical sunscreen that provides powerful broad-spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays using a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.⁣

Niacinamide soothes and relieves redness and sodium hyaluronate hydrates.⁣
