Television producer, executive and visionary Shonda Rhimes has partnered with Peloton to offer a groundbreaking self-care course. In partnership with Peloton, Rhimes will lead four weeks of the "Year of Yes" course. During the four-week program, the award winner will have in-depth discussions with Peloton instructors and offer on-demand workouts. Best of all, it is free and does not require the Peloton bike. Participants only need the app to join in.
“This is happening. I asked and Peloton said, 'Yes.' We’re giving you eight weeks to say yes to your own self-care with special classes, different instructors, round table discussions. Just say yes. Yes to your body. Yes to beginning again. Yes to athleticism in every form," Rhimes tweeted.
“I want to end this year strong and start 2021 even stronger. Join me. You don’t need a Peloton bike or tread to participate — all you need is the app. And it’s okay to be scared. I’m scared too. We can do this together.”
Thus far, Peloton has announced that popular instructors like Jess Sims, Tunde Oyeneyin, Adrian Williams and Chelsea Jackson Roberts are set to participate.
“Like any of the iconic characters that Shonda has created, we’re all nuanced and possess the ability to surpass the limitations of our own imaginations,” Peloton said.
“This year, Shonda is stepping into her power as an athlete because from her perspective, the act of working out is a practice for building resilience, strength and self-belief—a philosophy that holds true for the Peloton community as well. Storytelling and community are central tenets of Shonda’s production company, Shondaland, and she’s excited to partner with us, as a company whose values are so closely aligned with her own.”
