Let’s Get to Know…Jamie Herz!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis

My leaderboard name is #selfcare.  I bought my bike three years ago and at first I called myself #hochie but I ultimately thought that was lame and changed it to #selfcare.  It’s like a mantra for me.  I figured if I named myself that and saw it everyday it would motivate me to regularly care for myself.  It’s been a moderately successful plan 😊

Personal Info:

Name: Jamie Hochman Herz

Where do You live?  Ann Arbor, MI

Married/Single? Married

Kids/Grandkids – Three kids.  One boy- 14 and two girls – 11 and nine

Pets? A crazy, but the loviest black labradoodle, a 15 year old cat that just wishes the labradoodle who constantly wants to play with him would leave him the hell alone, and two guinea pigs that are relegated to a dark, dreary, pitch black room in the basement while my kids do the bare minimum so that I don’t give them away.  Anyone want some guinea pigs?

Working/Retired?  I work full-time for the Alzheimer’s Association, as a Program Director.  I am an attorney and a social worker and have worked at nonprofits for my entire career.  Have gone back and forth between practicing as an attorney and as a social worker.  Variety is the spice of life :). 

Do you have a motto in which you live by?

“I’m on a seafood diet – if I see it, I eat it.”  O.k., that is not my motto but it was my senior yearbook quote – for reals – and I’m happy to say that I live by that motto every damn day 😂. Seriously though, I think it’s to live your life as if it’s one giant adventure.  I am not the bravest or the most fearless, but I often take chances and embrace new experiences with enthusiasm and positivity. 

How long have you had your bike –  I have had my bike for over three years.  I basically saw an internet ad and thought “that is the coolest concept I’ve ever seen” and bought it a few days later.  Yes, I can be impulsive, but I also embrace my “life’s motto” and am enthusiastic about new things!  I won’t actually tell you how long it took me to ride it regularly though…

Where in your home do you ride?  My basement.  It used to be a dance studio so I get to watch myself in the full length wall mirror when I ride.  It’s especially fun when I’m sweating my a** off and feel like I’m going to puke 😉

What is your favorite color – yellow!  But, wouldn’t I be much cooler if I said something like “magenta or “sea green”?

What is your favorite food – French fries.  

What is your favorite TV Show – Six Feet Under

Have you ever ridden in studio – Yes! 

Who would you like to ride with – my husband!  Wish he would get on the damn bike 🙂

Guilty Pleasure – Naps!

Favorite Curse word – “Gosh Nabbet” – no that is my dad’s favorite curse word 😂 – I like “Fuckity Fuck Fuck”

Favorite musician – O.K, Kristy’s going to kill me but I can’t answer this question as asked – must be the lawyer in me.  So, here we go:

1960s: Joni Mitchell
1970s: James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac
1980s: Prince, Depeche Mode, Smiths
1990s: Sarah McLachlan (my poor husband had to go to so many Lilith Fair concerts)
2000s: Eminem
2010s: Hmm, right now I don’t really have a favorite, but I love Beck and The Head and the Heart
Morning or night – Night!
 Last Book You Read – Born a Crime, Trevor Noah
Who’s the Last Person who texted you – my son
Favorite App –  Facebook or Amazon
Favorite Sport – College Football!
Favorite Sports Team –  University of Michigan Wolverines – despite the fact that I still have a paper bag over my head from our last atrocious performance against OSU
Fave Alcoholic Beverage –  Margaritas
What Color is your toothbrush – White
Do you have a favorite cartoon character –  Edna from the Incredibles 😁
Coffee or tea – Both but coffee has a slight edge
What time do you go to bed – 12:00 am
Fave Reality TV show –  I forget the name of them but I seriously love the show/s where they show people with rare medical conditions from around the world  (like the man who looked like a tree) and try to treat them.  The grosser, the better.  I know, I’m weird but I should have been a doctor as I find all of that stuff fascinating…
What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I have severe performance anxiety – that despite being able to attend HRI last year on my own and talk with “strangers” for three days my extroversion doesn’t protect me from serious anxiety whenever I sing in front of a group.  I love to sing and feel like I never lived up to my potential because I could never sing as well in front of others as I can when I sing alone  🙁
Dinner guest – Lin-Manuel Miranda.  I would love to pick a contemporary creative genius’s brain.

    

Marry/F/Kill-Robin Arzon, Jenn Sherman  or JJ OR Matt Wilpers, Alex T. or Denis

    Marry: Matt

    Kill: Robin

    F:  Denis “Fuckity Fuck Fuck” baby!  😂

    Bestie: Jenn (that’s a new category I just   

      made up, but I’d probably marry her too.  

      😉)

Anything else you’d like to share?

My favorite movie!  It’s Cinema Paradiso.  I love that movie so, so much. 

And, I love this Tribe.  Thanks for making the bike so much fun!

YBBlue? Ask Tracy Patman!

First and foremost, explain what is your leaderboard name and what is its genesis

When I first got my bike in November 2017, I wasn’t thinking much about what my leaderboard should be, so originally I was #TracyP63.   So unimaginative! When I got back to riding and joined this tribe, I wanted something catchier and that embodied who I am.   After my 100th ride, I made the decision to change my LB name and I chose #YBBlue – I have a perpetually sunny and positive disposition and the LB name evolves from my personalized car tag which has donned the YBBLUE name for 15 years.

Personal Info:

Name: Tracy Patman

Where do You live? Pass Christian, MS

Married/Single? Married, 25 years to Larry!

Kids/Grandkids? No children

Pets? 7 cats – Tigre, Meems, Mouse, Gadget, Toby, Ninja and Seven – I am not a crazy cat lady, I swear!!

Working/Retired? Retired and working.   I worked for the federal government as a geophysicist, oceanographer, and an IT specialist (enterprise architecture and system security) with the Department of Defense and NASA from the summer of my sophomore year in college (1982) to when I retired early at age 50 (2013). Since then I have been working in private industry as a Senior Applications Threat Analyst, basically working to make applications and services more secure from hacking.

Do you have a motto in which you live by? Be courageous, be brave, and always stay humble and kind.

  • How long have you had your bike – A little over a year?   November 2017
  • Where in your home do you ride –  The dining room since we don’t use it for eating J
  • What is your favorite Color – Pink
  • What is your favorite food – Wings
  • What is your favorite TV Show – NCIS, NCIS NOLA, and Criminal Minds (I can never pick just one)
  • Have you ever ridden in studio – No but a plan is in the works for June or thereabouts- fingers crossed.
  • Who would you like to ride with – The #milestonemaniacs (#feffer, #Spinning_Kally, #Buffinda34, #GooniesNvrSayDi), the #bicoastalduo (#2aDayKymmi, #pineapplelove), and #bamaguy, #KokoelliMon all on a Jenn Sing Along ride (Fuck it, lets just have a ride with the whole tribe)

  • Favorite Curse word – Fuck – in all forms.
  • Favorite musician – Is this really a fair question? This has changed so many times in my life, but in my youth, the Bee Gees had a great impact on me.
  • Morning or night – My preference is night but work requires me to be a morning person. Either that or not get enough sleep!
  • Last Book You Read – Dispatches from Pluto – Lost and Found in the Mississippi Delta by Richard Grant
  • Who’s the Last Person who texted you – Victoria, my niece.
  • Favorite App – Words with Friends
  • Favorite Sport – Football – When I was in college I also play intramural football as a quarterback and a wide receiver J

  • Fave Reality TV show – American Idol or X-Factor UK – I am all about the music
  • What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? Can I share two things?
    When I started out in my career, as a cooperative education student working for the federal government and in the early years after I graduated, I went to sea onboard oceanographic survey ships taking sonar images of the ocean bottom for antisubmarine warfare. Our surveys were 30 days long and we spent 7 days in port between surveys. It was an awesome way to see the world, even though some of the places weren’t exactly tourist destinations.   On my first trip, in port in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, being more tan than most of my shipmates, I was almost taken in by the Guardia Civil when going back to the ship because they mistook me for a local and thought I was a hooker LOL. This was my first trip ever to go anywhere. At 19, that was a tad traumatizing!
  1. I have almost two books worth of poetry that I have written and plan to publish soon.

  • Dinner guest – Michelle Obama, Stephen King, Jenn Sherman

25) Marry/F/Kill-Robin Arzon, Jenn Sherman or JJ OR Matt Wilpers, Alex T. or Denis – Marry Jenn, F Denis, no kill J

 

Anything else you’d like to share? When I got my bike in November of 2017 I barely rode and had only ridden 21 times when I took my first Jenn ride on June 5 and discovered this tribe.   Since June 5th I have ridden 275 times! (#300 is planned for December 5th). As I got to know this tribe, I became part of something greater, and found a place I had been longing for.   We laugh, cry and celebrate together and even across many miles, it feels like there is no distance or time.

I absolutely love Peloton and I love this tribe! All of you and our fearless leader, Jenn, inspire me and motivate me every day. Last year in March of 2018 on my one year peloversary, I shared on the OPP that I bought my peloton 2.5 months after my precious Dad passed away. He and I were extremely close and now 25 months after his passing, I am still heartbroken and devastated. I use this bike as therapy every day as I am grieving and mourning his loss. One of the signs that shows me that my Dad is with me is that I see his name everywhere…on TV, on signs while driving, in commercials, etc… His name is Royal and he went by Roy. There have been numerous times that I have seen a leaderboard name while riding with “Roy” or “Royal” in it. This is so special to me as it is a sign that my Dad is watching over me…even when I am riding. Thank you for reading! J

Anything else you’d like to share?  I clip in every day not to work out but to have a karaoke party with my tribe.  The playlist is everything for me and that is why I love JSS. The more I sing, the better my output and I am totally tone deaf.  Burning 5-600 calories is just icing on the cake.

With my job, I am always either buried in work in my home office or traveling. I get up and ride before work and it helps tremendously. I love my job, I love my family life and I love my Peloton peeps. I am grateful to be part of this community.( though I miss the interaction with Jenn on the FB page and hate the Peloton rule regarding that issue)

WHO IS MIRIAM FEFFER?

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is its genesis

#Feffer…Before I got the bike, I wanted people who knew me in real life to be able to find me on the LB. Now, I only care about connecting with Pelo-friends and wish I had chosen something creative.

Personal Info:

Name:  Miriam Feffer

Where do You live?  Washington, DC

Married/Single? Married. My husband started a job in New York in February, so he stays there during the week, which means I’m effectively a single parent Monday-Friday. I got the Peloton to ensure that I could get some exercise and maintain a tenuous hold on my sanity.

Kids/Grandkids I have one energetic, outspoken third-grader, Abby. She likes to ride, so I just made her a separate account to stop her from juking my stats. She’s oddly tall and athletic. (I am neither.)

We currently have 2 robot fish, Fin and Drifter. Two summers ago, we rented chickens for a month. It was the perfect experiment in pet care, with minimal commitment and wonderful fresh eggs. I’m sure Click and Cluck, the Pullet Sisters, are now comfortably ensconced in another family’s yard/stock pot.

Working/Retired? I’m Vice President for Development at HIAS, the global Jewish refugee agency, where I oversee an incredibly dedicated team of advancement professionals. My dad was a refugee from Hitler’s Europe, so this shit is deeply personal. As you may have heard, we were the organization named by the Pittsburgh shooter as the cause of his rage. It’s been an overwhelming few months, to say the least, but my bike – and this community – have been a source of strength and comfort.

On a lighter note, I began my career as an anthropologist, studying the ways young people talk about their bodies in a summer camp context. I believe I remain unchallenged as the academic authority on the practice of naming the penis!

Do you have a motto in which you live by? You look hungry. Eat something.

  • How long have you had your bike – 9 months
  • Where in your home do you ride – basement
  • What is your favorite Color – blue (cobalt, specifically)
  • What is your favorite food – Ice cream. All the ice cream.
  • What is your favorite TV Show – I love TV and am hard-pressed to pick a fave but will drop everything at the first strains of the “Golden Girls” theme. (I’m a Sophia.) If you enjoy 80s rides and haven’t seen “GLOW,” get your ass on Netflix now. Finally, if anyone from Amazon’s production team is listening, I’d love to give the star of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” a cameo on a flashback epi of “Transparent” – she’d be long-lost cousin Miriam Pfefferman!
  • Have you ever ridden in studio – Yes, with JSS, Denis, Ally, and Christine. My favorite Mothership experience to date was Bullshit Milestone Sunday. If I do nothing else constructive with my life, I invented a legit(ish) holiday!
  • Who would you like to ride with – 1) My fellow Milestone Maniacs: #YBBlue, #Buffinda34, #GooniesNvrSayDi, and #SpinningKally. 2) I’m not-so-secretly obsessed with #BamaGuy’s habits and cordially invite him to join me under the disco ball. 3) I’ve been fortunate to ride with a bunch of you in the studio and Bethesda, MD showroom. You’re too numerous to name but all great company!
  • Guilty Pleasure – A few years ago, my mom downsized, so I had to get my junk out of her house. I discovered an enormous trove of old letters from my lovelorn teen years. They’re alternately poignant, disgusting, mortifying, hilarious, and faintly scented with perm solution. I read them at random when I need a pick-me-up.
  • Favorite Curse word – I mean, “fuck” is a classic, right? It’s so versatile: you can use it as an intensifier (“JFDI”), to refer to actual sex, to express anger (“fuck you”), confusion (“WTF”), disgust (“fucked up”), frustration (“fuck me”), desire (ibid.). It’s the Swiss Army Knife of profanity.

When my daughter was in kindergarten, she confessed that she had learned “the F word.” She wouldn’t tell me what the word was but eventually agreed to spell it. To my chagrin, she left out the C. I’m a former citywide spelling champ, bee-topped trophy and all. No child of mine misspells “fuck”!

  • Favorite musician – Anyone on any 70s or 80s playlist floats my boat.
  • Morning or night – Morning. I’m sure whatever happens at night is delightful, but I don’t care to find out.
  • Last Book You Read – 1) Homegoing. Run, don’t walk, to read this searing multigenerational saga of the impact of slavery on one family. (It’s not a beach read, but there are uplifting moments.) 2) Dietland, recently made into a so-so TV show, is a viciously insightful satire of embodiment, anger, self-discovery, and the absurdity of lipstick.
  • Who’s the Last Person who texted you – My mom, who still hasn’t figured out that she doesn’t need to sign texts. Oy.
  • Favorite App – Facebook is a terrible habit for the nosy and distractible.
  • Favorite Sport – Does spelling count? (See above.)
  • Favorite Sports Team – I’m not a big athletic supporter, as they say. I’m on the board of my daughter’s school, so…go, Milton Pandas!
  • Fave Alcoholic Beverage – I’m more of an eater than a drinker, but a little something sparkling is always nice.
  • What Color is your toothbrush – Off-white. (Sonicare.)
  • Do you have a favorite cartoon character – She’s not (usually) a cartoon, but Miss Piggy represents a certain ideal of confidence and panache to moi.
  • Coffee or tea – Coffee before noon, tea anytime.
  • What time do you go to bed – Ideally 10.
  • Fave Reality TV show – “American Ninja Warrior” and “Kids Baking Championship”
  • What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I grew up partly in Toronto. I’m very loud for a Canadian. Still hoping JSS will do a Canadian Rock Ride to welcome our Tribemates from the Great White North.
  • Dinner guest – You’re all invited. I’m an avid baker, so save room for dessert.
  • Marry/F/Kill-Robin Arzon, Jenn Sherman or JJ OR Matt Wilpers, Alex T. or Denis
    1. F: Robin. I get the occasional urge to take her class, we spend a memorable hour together, and then I fade away without cuddling or calling. We’re at it again a few weeks later, no strings attached.
    2. M: Denis and I are already married. Don’t tell my husband. Also, don’t tell Denis. He thinks we’re just friends.
    3. K: Can you kill someone with kindness and friendship? If so, there’s a special place in my heart for our beloved Jenn.

Anything else you’d like to share? I’m always happy to share and overshare. (You’ve read my bra reviews, right?) Ask me anything below, and thanks for being a part of this extraordinary community.

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis

There was a group of girls that I used to do Triathlons with. We would workout together and travel to do a few races every summer. Of the group of about 50 girls there were two that were my closest friends. One of them started calling me “Jenny Girl.” Because the three of us were different ages we would all start and finish the races at different times so that made it easy for us to cheer and support each other and I would always hear them yell out “Come on Jenny Girl!” Due to injury and children my friends both left the group and it was not the same without them. That lead me to my Peloton and when it was time to choose a name I knew I had to be “Jenny_Girl” so they would always be with me.

Most people call me “Jenn Yarnell” all one word like “Jenn Sherman” Even though I haven’t had that last name for almost 10 years I can’t shake it and I’m ok with that.
  • Dinner guest – Ellen…I just love watching her show and she has such a way with all types of people that I think we can all learn something from her.

Anything else you’d like to share:

For me Peloton and the community in just 1 year has truly been one of the best experiences of my life. When I was in High School I was very active as a Manager for Football, Basketball, and Baseball.  I was not a great athlete, especially with Contact sports, but I knew I loved sports and love to help others but I never took time for my own fitness.  After HS I began to spin at a local gym, but with two part time jobs and college courses I could only make it maybe 2 times a week.  On  Oct. 13,2017 when I decided it was time to try my mom’s bike and took my first ride OD with JSS and the addiction was instant.  My first trip to the studio was when I met Jenn in person and she has been there for me with great advice, love and support.  So far I have lost over 15 pounds, and have never felt better in my life.  I love to ride Live when my schedule allows, but what I love most is the convenience of riding when I want and as long as I want.

JSS has my favorite playlists and although I am 27 , her tunes are totally for me.

HRI2018 was like going to the Super Bowl for me, where I had the opportunity to meet so many face to face.  The JSSTRIBE, admins, and members are so special.   I have to   mention David Barnett who has become a mentor to me, and there isn’t enough room to list everyone, but you know who you are.  Through social media I have developed wonderful friendships, I want to thank everyone for everything, the encouragement, high fives and advice I receive daily.

So thankful for this Tribe and all it is.

Peloton has been so amazing for me and most importantly I found an exercise program that is perfect and I can say I am “Off the Sidelines” and found my passion

Anything else you’d like to share? I really am as happy as all my pictures or rather sweaty selfies show. I like to call this period of life my second life. It took being really unhappy and in a really difficult situation to get here though. Every day I give thanks for the new life I have created for my daughter and myself but without those trying times I wouldn’t have such a great appreciation for all the goodness now. Peloton and the JSSTribe have played a HUGE part in getting me here, without all of you life would feel a little less full!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I love everything about this bike and this community!  I am so thankful that my sisters got me into Peloton and introduced me to riding with Jenn.  I love being able to ride with my #pelosisters even though we may live apart from each other.  And we WILL get into the studio to ride together, with Jenn of course! Oh and thanks to my sister Kerry for volunteering me for this.  I’d NEVER have done it for myself (I’m not the outgoing sister!) so in return can I use this forum to nominate #SpiderGirl for a future LB get to know you?!

Who is BunnyFooFoo? Let’s Find Out!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis

This is tough. I am not sure I should explain it in its entirety. Let’s just say, it was a nickname an old boyfriend used to call me (Bunny), I’ll let you try and figure that part out and then he proceeded to send me Youtube videos of BunnyFooFoo. Thinking he was sharing something “new” to me, but, who doesn’t know the tale/song right?! It used to be Princess BunnyFooFoo, but I shortened it when I had to make my LB name.

Personal Info:

Name: Deneen Salvaggio

Married/Single? Single

Kids/Grandkids 3 Morgan (23), Lindsey (almost 21) and Zachary 11

Pets? Manny (cat) 14 and Daisy (5) Yellow Lab

Working/Retired? I used to work for Readers Digest in Pleasantville NY before Morgan was born, as a Quality Assurance Analyst. The BEST job and company out there at the time. I left after Morgan was born with complications in utero, that resulted in her severe mental disabilities. She has been my job, as well as raising Lindsey and Zachary, for a long time. I wouldn’t change it for anything in this world.

 

Do you have a motto in which you live by? “It’s not the time in your life, it’s the life in your time”. I choose to live every day like there isn’t a tomorrow. Not in a careless way, but, I have learned so much patience in my lifetime and I try and make every day count. Though, I’ll admit, I am still that person who swears profusely if you are in the left lane cruising along, when clearly you need to be in the right!

1) How long have you had your bikeNovember 27 will be 1 year.

2) Where in your home do you rideI have an office that I am just now starting to paint, rip up carpet and put new flooring down and make it my own space to ride. It has double doors, so I can shut them when I ride and blast my music.

4) What is your favorite foodSushi, breakfast, lunch but I’d change it up and have sashimi for dinner.

5) What is your favorite TV ShowOh geez.. I am a HUGE American Horror Story fan. I have loved every season except Cult. Hated ittttttt! I turn off all the lights and see if it can scare the shit out of me. Sometimes it gets close.

6) Have you ever ridden in studioYes, several times. I absolutely LOVE going down to be with friends and meeting new ones.

7) Who would you like to ride withThere are so many “friends” I’ve met through this amazing community that I haven’t met yet. I’d love to ride with every single one of them.

8) Guilty PleasureThis is funny, because I never feel guilty about anything I enjoy.

9) Favorite Curse wordDouche’ Canoe (A term I use for men as well as women)

23) What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I was a tomboy growning up. Out of three girls, I am the middle child and was always the “ fan” favorite. I did every boy thing there was with my dad. Fishing was our favorite. We used to take boat trips for the day when he lived in SC and I would show people near us how to bait the hooks while they sat there in horror because I was actually touching live bait with pretty nails.

24) Dinner guestI would absolutely LOVE a huge dinner party at my house with all of the TripleP’s together.

25) Marry/F/Kill- Marry-Jenn /F CODY (or at least die trying)/ Kill- CDE (don’t let me start).

Anything else you’d like to share? My bike and this tribe arrived in my life exactly when I needed it the most. There are reasons for everything. I truly believe this. You are ALL meant to be in my life for one reason or another. I am honored to be here among all of you awesome people and especially Jenn, who is the reason I have become one of the addicts to this bike that goes nowhere.

My favorite tribe outside of the JSS tribe is #PMG, physician moms group, because we are women who try to be the best doctors and moms and wives and daughters and friends and mentors, etc., while still carving out time for ourselves. If I had had this type of a group when I was struggling as a new mom in medical school and residency, it would have been sooooo much easier. We share so much love and support in that group, it’s truly amazing that we were brought together by a bike that goes nowhere!

Who is Kenny_Bania and does he really feel that soup is not a meal????

Leaderboard Get To Know You

 

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis : Kenny_Bania

I’ve always been a huge Seinfeld fan and Kenny Bania was one of those funny support characters that always cracked me up. When I got my first email account, I used kennybania as the handle and always used that name in online message boards, chat forums, etc.

Bania always made me laugh because he was totally clueless about how bad of a comedian he was and how much Jerry disliked him. My favorite episode is ‘The Soup” where Kenny gives Jerry a brand new Armani suit for free but then manages to get him to take him out for dinner at Mendy’s but then isn’t hungry and just orders soup and wants to save the meal for another time.

I always love quoting Bania in everyday life and like to use his catchphrases, ‘The Best!’ and ‘That’s GOLD!’ whenever possible. I really don’t think that soup counts as a meal…..even if you crumble crackers!

Let’s meet Larabee1 this week!

 

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis: I wish I could say I have some thoughtfully crafted, deeply meaningful leaderboard name but alas I do not. It is simply a take on my first name and the first initial of my last name (larabee1). I know – very creative. I’ve thought about changing it but it seems too late now – I’ve committed!

Personal Info:

Name: Lara R. Badain

Where do You live? Rochester, NY (home of the Wegmans mothership)

Married/Single? Long-term relationship (at my age – 51 – I think “boyfriend” sounds a little silly, right?) with Jay Speranza

Kids/Grandkids: 3 step-children; 1 step-grandson

Pets? YES (MY child) – I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Henry. He’s my third RR in about 20 years. I have a borderline abnormal obsession/devotion to my dog(s)

Working/Retired? Working – Attorney – long time litigator, now focused more on mediation – it’s far more civilized – I work mostly in the area of matrimonial and family law.

Do you have a motto which you live by? This one seems appropriate here: “Inspiration is hard to come by. You have to take it where you find it.” – Bob Dylan

  • How long have you had your bike – March 3, 2018
  • Where in your home do you ride – In my home office
  • What is your favorite Color – Purple
  • What is your favorite food – Hard to say. I’m spoiled – my partner Jay owns a restaurant where he is the executive chef. He focuses on Italian so I’ll go with pasta.
  • What is your favorite TV Show – ANYTHING by Aaron Sorkin but especially the West Wing. I can quote most of the episodes.
  • Have you ever ridden in studio – not yet, but am hoping to get there at the end of August when we’re in NYC
  • Who would you like to ride with – Jenn, of course, and Kristy Carruba!
  • Guilty Pleasure – Ice cream
  • Favorite Curse word – naturally, FUCK, and all its variations (fucked, fucker, fucking, etc…)!
  • Favorite musician – This is a hard one…Prince? Madonna? Or could I say favorite band? Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, there are just so many.
  • Morning or night – Morning for sure
  • Last Book You Read – some boring law book
  • Who’s the Last Person who texted you – my brother, Marc
  • Favorite App – Weather Channel (I know, so lame – but I need to know weather for dog walking).
  • Favorite Sport – NFL Football
  • Favorite Sports Team – This is a longer story than I can tell here, but my family has been die-hard Oakland Raider fans forever (my grandfather was close with the owner). My brother, Marc, has been with the team since after college and was named President of the Raiders in 2015.
  • Fave Alcoholic Beverage – Vodka with Lemonade or an Aperol Spritzer
  • What Color is your toothbrush – Blue and White

  • What time do you go to bed – around 10-11pm
  • Fave Reality TV show – Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
  • What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I’m kind of old school, like I think the handwritten note is a lost art. Also, I can be somewhat shy and reserved which people sometimes mistake for aloofness. Oh, and I was at SU at the same time as Jenn (a year ahead – sadly, our paths never crossed)
  • Dinner guest – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

25) Marry/F/Kill-Robin Arzon, Jenn Sherman or JJ OR Matt Wilpers, Alex T. or Denis – I’ve gotta be honest, I don’t know the players well enough to answer this one. If I went in that direction, I might marry Jenn.

Anything else you’d like to share? I’ve found the bike to be transformative. I’m more of a social media “voyeur” rather than one who shares much, so I tend to follow the Tribe slightly from afar. I thought completing this “get to know you” might be a step in the direction of being more open and involved. I think we all share our appreciation for Jenn’s gift – this community is extraordinary.

Julia Young…aka Juli…aka Jules is MY KIND OF FUN!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name…

MyKindOfFun. I have been in love with exercise since I was 8 years old. My big sister (we’re 13 years apart) was watching me for a weekend, wanted to go to the gym and it was LONG before gyms had childcare. I played on Nautilus machines heeding her instructions to “get off if an adult comes and wants to use it”. It was love at first hamstring curl and aerobics class. However, my first LB name was 3ocgirls, which is my Instagram name, which is for me and my two girls living the good life in Orange County, CA. I switched it because I felt I needed something different for me and this bike.

Personal Info:

Name: Julia Young (most people call me Juli or Jules, but my brother calls me Gu – long story)

Where do You live? Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. Our claim to fame is being the home of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Married/Single? Married for 17 years this December to Greg, who rides MY bike, but only the Scenic or Just Ride Rides. Wish he would just try a spin class…

 

Kids/Grandkids? 2 daughters (Jada – 13, Addison -11) and one son, Eric (23!), who I’ve raised since he was 4. He was a bonus with Greg. J

Pets? Our dog, Lexi. She’s the first dog I’ve ever owned and hasn’t a clue how to sit right even at the old age of 9 years old.

Jada owns a bearded dragon, Sunny (Picture is from her 1st bday last year)

Working/Retired? I’m a stay-at-home mom, but I’ve done freelance PR/Marketing work for the last 13 years for a small, local PR agency.

Motto in which you live by? It’s a toss up between “Everything happens for a reason” and “Life is not a dress rehearsal”

  • How long have you had your bike – I’m a newbie compared to most of the vocal JSS tribe folks. I got my bike on Jan. 8, 2018. It was like Christmas all over again when the delivery guys arrived. I may have excitedly jumped up and down when they arrived and starting setting it up.
  • Where in your home do you ride – The garage. We’ve slowly been turning it into a gym.
  • What is your favorite Color – Blue
  • What is your favorite food – Oh, that’s a hard of a question. My husband says I get way too excited about food – from buying it at our farmers market, to cooking/baking, to eating it. I love a good steak w/ béarnaise sauce, burrata cheese with anything, dark chocolate, perfectly roasted brussel sprouts…Do you see the problem???
  • What is your favorite TV Show – This is Us, but Jada and I may have binge watched both seasons of Queer Eye in record time.
  • Have you ever ridden in studio – No, but I have high hopes of getting there next year for HRI.
  • Who would you like to ride with – JSS (of course!), Ally, Robin and Denis too.
  • Guilty Pleasure – Nothing really came to mind here…clearly I don’t feel any guilt about finding pleasure! 😉
  • Favorite Curse word – Probably shit. Fuck if I’m really mad or excited.
  • Favorite musician –Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks. My license plate says GLDST WM (for Gold Dust Woman).
  • Morning or night – Morning with a cup o’ joe in hand.
  • Last Book You Read – Keto Reset Diet by Mark Sisson. Currently reading Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter. I’m due to dive into a good beach read.
  • Who’s the Last Person who texted you – Handyman who is going to help us install a new bathroom vanity in girls’ bathroom. We just moved to a new house a year ago…time to start making it ours.
  • Favorite App – Top 3: Peloton, of course! I’m using the Strength and Stretch portions a ton to cross train. Calm meditation app. Love my daily meditation. I’m a lunatic without it. Last one is Instagram, but I’m trying to tone down the social media. Not working very well.
  • Favorite Sport – College Baseball
  • Favorite Sports Team – Cal State Fullerton, Titans (baseball team). My husband buys into the 3rd base box, which is right next to the Titan dugout. We attend most home games – it’s pretty much where you can find Greg, the girls and yours truly on the weekends between February and June.
  • Fave Alcoholic Beverage – Margarita!
  • What Color is your toothbrush – White with a green button
  • Do you have a favorite cartoon character –Calvin & Hobbs!
  • Coffee or tea – Coffee. I want to like tea, but I can’t make a decent cup to save my life. A total embarrassment to my British heritage. My mom actually came to this country from England on the Queen Mary in 1949. Clearly my ancestry doesn’t run deep.
  • What time do you go to bed – About 10pm
  • Fave Reality TV show – None. Haven’t seen a good reality show since the first couple seasons of “The Real World” on MTV, or the first seasons of “The Bachelor”.
  • What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I took my first spin class in 1997 when they didn’t keep seats on the bike, so you had to ride out of the saddle the whole time. Almost puked after that class. Fell in love with spinning, and became an instructor. I taught for a few years, with some breaks when I was pregnant. In the last couple years, I couldn’t find a spin class/studio I liked around home. Too many classes taught where you just kept doing push ups off the handle bars and tap backs. Made me nuts! That’s why I bought the Peloton.
  • Who would you like to have as a Dinner guest – Barbra Streisand, Michelle Obama or Oprah
  • F Marry Kill… Oliver Lee – could listen to his accent all day long (M), Denis (F), Cody (K)

Anything else you’d like to share?

I wrote 50 different things for this question and all of them felt like TMI or over-sharing. Guess that’s a sign to be done. LOL.

Does he like birds? Lets find out who WickdParrotHead REALLY is!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard nameI’m a massive Jimmy Buffett fan – a ParrotHead – and I’ve been to over 60 Jimmy Buffett concerts. I was born in Honolulu, but Boston is my chosen home and wicked is a positive adjective here. So WickdParrotHead is a nod to both my home and my musical passion. PHINS UP!!

Personal Info:

Name: Andrew Stevens, though that’s my Facebook pseudonym. I use an alternate FB identity so that the 20-somethings on my team at work don’t learn how depraved some of my friends can be. 

Where do you live? Newton Centre, Massachusetts, about a mile over the Boston city line and 5 miles from downtown.

Married/Single?  Live with my partner – and his mom, who has dementia

Kids/Grandkids?  No kids. I never thought I was cut out for parenthood.

Pets? I’m a dog nut. If I could, I’d have dozens and I’d save every dog in need. We have Angus, who is 95 lbs of Goldendoodle love without whom I can’t even imagine my life. He’s spoiled rotten but still well behaved and he will do anything – and I mean anything – if you’ll throw his Frisbee for him to fetch. And you’d better get in bed before he does or you’ll be lucky to score 15” in which to sleep!

Working/Retired? Working. I’m a career mortgage banker, but not a loan originator – I work in what’s called Secondary Marketing in our business. The bank I worked for recently sold the division I ran, so I’m currently doing some consulting for other companies and looking for my next career opportunity. I also teach the School of Mortgage Banking for the Mortgage Bankers Association all over the U.S. and again this year in India.

Motto in which you live by? Illegitimi non Carborundum. My dad has had that on a sign over his dresser my whole life and I really like it.

How long have you had your bikeMy bike was a housewarming gift in September, 2016 from my partner’s mother when I bought the house in which we now live. I bought the house so we would have enough space for her to move in with us so she did something amazing for me & bought me my bike.

Where in your home do you rideOur finished basement is the exercise room. My Peloton shares space with a seldom-used elliptical and treadmill

What is your favorite ColorGreen

What is your favorite foodHmmm. . . so many options . . none of them healthy. Gotta go with pizza.

What is your favorite TV ShowDoctor Who. And if you haven’t watched Amazon Prime’s The Man in the High Castle? Oh yeah – you gotta!

Have you ever ridden in studioNo. That’s a major PeloGoal for me

Who would you like to ride withJSS, Ally, Denis, Alex or HMC

Guilty PleasureSour Patch Kids – the 2X sized ones. If I’m weak enough to allow them in the house? I’ll eat ‘em until they’ve taken a layer of skin off of the roof of my mouth. Shameful!

Favorite Curse wordMonkeyFuckers! It works for bad drivers, frustrating situations and for when the Yankees take a lead over the Red Sox.

Favorite musician – Well given my LB name, I’m clearly going with Saint James – Jimmy Buffett!

Morning or night – Depends upon the activity. J I love being up early and I live staying up late. They’re not compatible behaviors. Working from home does give me a bit of flexibility, though.

Last Book You ReadI’m actually not sure. I read everything on my Kindle, and I’m usually reading several books at once. The last one I finished was most likely a murder mystery – they’re my go-to reads for relaxing.

Who’s the Last Person who texted youMy friend Dawn – #GirlsWhoCanDo. We were chatting about today’s One Peloton ride and about Denis’ Hairgate ride from a few months ago.

Favorite App FlightRadar24. I’m an aircraft/airline nerd

Favorite Sport Baseball

Favorite Sports TeamBoston Red Sox. My license plates read BEAT – N.Y.

Fave Alcoholic BeverageWell here is Sophie’s Choice . . . but I gotta go with beer – good beer like Sam Adams or Guinness. An ice cold martini or an exceptional gin & tonic (my brother’s are insanely good) is a very close second.

What Color is your toothbrushWhite – it’s an attitude-laden Sonicare. I love the results, but always feel as if it’s judging me when I use it.

Do you have a favorite cartoon characterI feel like a doof, but I really don’t have one. I was never much into cartoons.

Coffee or teaCoffee. Black. We have a wet bar in our bedroom (everyone should – it’s amazing!) and a coffeemaker that grinds beans and then brews coffee. Beans grinding makes for a fantastic alarm clock.

What time do you go to bedWe usually head upstairs around 11, then we ignore all expert advice and play with the dog and play games on our phone for an hour or so. Lights out is usually around midnight.

Fave Reality TV showTop Chef or Project Runway. Impossible to choose.

What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I am Chairman of the Board of a little non-profit that did – Save Fenway Park! Most people no longer recall that Fenway was going to be torn down in the early 00’s. We fought like hell for 10 years and managed to pour enough sand in the gears of “progress” to make sure Fenway was still here when Mr. Henry – and his $800 million – bought the Red Sox and decided to renovate America’s Greatest Ballpark. The phone call from the Red Sox telling me that they had decided to renovate will always be a highlight of my life.

Who would you like to have as a Dinner guest Besides JSS (cuz that would be awesome!)? I’m a history and U.S. Constitution geek so I’d love to be able to have Thomas Jefferson and James Madison over and pick their brains about the Constitution and the Federalist Papers. Anyone reading this still awake? J

F Marry Kill…Jenn, Hannah, Ally or Denis, Alex, Cody

F Denis or Alex

M Ally

K None of the above – they’re all awesome!

Anything else you’d like to share? –

I went to UConn – during the Big East’s glory days – and I’m a rabid Husky fan. Which is why JSS always gets a snarky comment from me (that she can’t hear, of course) when she talks about Syracuse during rides. But I save my nastiest comments for when JSS tells us it’s time for yet another climb!

I love this bike and I love this tribe. If anyone had told me that when I put a bike in my basement that it would lead me to new, meaningful friendships with people I would otherwise have never met? I’d have laughed – how can a bike that goes nowhere do that? Now I know. And I preach the Pelotruth to anyone who will stand still long enough to listen. The bike that goes nowhere will take you everywhere!

This week…Let’s get to know: CAPTAIN TOM LEBEL

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name…

#CaptTom

In 2001 my ex was pregnant with our first and I quit my job. Not knowing what I was going to do. I thought about personal chef but found it difficult to manage. I had a 36’ Sailboat in the backyard. So I decided I would take people out for a 3 hour sail and then anchor and serve them a gourmet 4 course meal. To pull this off I would need to sit for a 2 day test to become a licensed Captain. So post 9/11 I went to the Coast Guard Station in Manhattan and took the test. From the moment I passed the business started. It was the best 5 years of my life. That’s when I became CaptTom.

DEB DENBURG isn’t JUST Jason’s Mom…want to know more? Check it Out!

The genesis of my leaderboard name:

Endorphins are called simply the body’s “ feel good” chemical. When they are released you get a natural boost in mood, energy and as well helps to relieve stress. Exercise is known to be a key method to help get your endorphins flowing. For me spinning does this hence the leaderboard name “EndorphinRush “ was perfect!

To my friends and family I have always been described as an “open book”. What you see is what you get. My birthday falls under the zodiac sign “Leo” which is fitting for my personality. I tend to express myself boldly and definitely wear my heart on my sleeve. On a good day I possess many of the characteristics of a Leo namely, I am energetic, talkative, entertaining (love to make others laugh), loyal and nakedly honest. On a bad day I can definitely have a jealous streak which I try to battle within myself.

JENNYMSU…Let’s Get to Know YOU this week!

Leaderboard Get To Know You 

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name: 

JennyMSU

I’m afraid it isn’t that exciting or inspired. While I go by “Jen” to anyone I met after high school, my family and childhood friends all still call me Jenny. The MSU part is pretty easy — I hold both bachelors and masters degrees from Michigan State University and will be a diehard Spartan till the end. Even though they bombed hard during this year’s March Madness. I’m not bitter about it at all. AT ALL. Nope. #lies

Name: Jen Farhat

Where do You live? Hartland, Michigan

Married/Single? I was married for 10 years, but am divorced. The good news is that I’ve been with my “new” boyfriend for about four years (and have known him since I was 19, when we were both at MSU). I’m sincerely hoping he puts a ring on it soon so that I can stop calling him my boyfriend because I’m too old for a damn boyfriend.

 

Kids/Grandkids? No kids. Mostly by choice (see divorce above) and life circumstances. Would love a child, but at 42, I make a helluva dog mom (see below).

Pets? I’m a dog person through and through. Rosie, the love of my life, is a 6-ish year-old Boston Terrier who I got from a rescue five years ago. We’ve been through a lot together, including her having cancer (and chemo) in 2014. She’s spoiled and flatulent and gives me approximately 16 inches of space in our king-sized bed, but I love her the most. Don’t tell my boyfriend.

 
Working/Retired? I’m a senior communications advisor for a global insurance carrier — which is a fancy way of saying I’m a writer and project manager who tries to make workers’ compensation insurance seem sexy. I’ve been with my company for 15 years and ask myself at least weekly where my youth went. I’m also a freelance makeup artist, doing mostly weddings. Because free time is for suckers. Just kidding. I just love makeup and am damn good at it (#humblebrag).
 
If you went to college…what college did you go to? Michigan State (their basketball team will disappoint you)
 
Motto in which you live by? Lead with your heart. Also with sarcasm.

How long have you had your bike: Since December 2017

Where in your home do you ride: My basement, in the unfinished part where our home gym is. I stare at a water softener. It’s pretty amazing.

What is your favorite Color: Purple.

What is your favorite food: I’m part Lebanese and so raw kibbee (Google it) is among my fave foods. Also sushi. See a theme?

What is your favorite TV Show: Drama = The Newsroom with Jeff Daniels (it’s so good). Comedy = Friends (this show will never NOT hold up for me; it’s still so funny and watchable, which I do daily). Also Nurse Jackie. I like TV.

Have you ever ridden in studio: yes! Had the pleasure of riding #100 with JSS in April and also rode with Ally and Alex that same week.

 
Who would you like to ride with: All of you. Every last one of you. Wait, do you mean instructor-wise? You probably mean instructor-wise. Jenn, of course, and also Christine and Dennis (among those I haven’t already ridden with).
 
Guilty Pleasure: Vanderpump Rules on Bravo. It’s literally THE WORST SHOW on television. It’s terrible. I’m dumber for watching it. I love it. 
 
Favorite Curse word: “Fuck these fucking fuckers,” is a real favorite phrase of mine. It’s said typically in traffic. Or during March Madness. I’m a real lady, guys.
 
Favorite musician: Fun fact, I thought this said “favorite magician” and I was like, “Well that’s a weird question, but I like it — David Copperfield? I guess?!” My favorite MUSICIAN is Eddie Vedder/Pearl Jam, followed by Ed Sheeran. I have a thing for musicians named Ed, evidently. Also Justin Timberlake, who is not named Ed but gets a pass because, come on.
 
Morning or night: I’m a solidly midday kind of person.
 
Last Book You Read: Book 6 of the Harry Potter series, which I can’t remember the name of. I listen to them on Audible while I commute (an hour each way). I’ve been commuting for nearly a year. I’m still not done with the series. These books are LONG. 
 
Who’s the Last Person who texted you: My dad, asking “how in the hell do I use this damn thing?!” referring to my old iPhone I recently gave him. He had a flip phone until a week ago. He doesn’t understand touch screens and basically butt dials our family constantly now, gets mad and then fails to hang up so we can hear him cursing like a madman. It’s the best. 
 
Favorite App: Instagram is the one I go to most. My favorite is probably the Sephora app, but it takes all my money so I’m not giving it the satisfaction of the top spot. 
 
Favorite Sport: College basketball when my team doesn’t miss 14 CONSECUTIVE SHOTS TO LOSE TO AN 11-SEED AND MISS THE SWEET 16. But I’m fine with it. FINE WITH IT.
 
Favorite Sports Team: MSU Football (suck it, basketball)
 
Fave Alcoholic Beverage: Champagne, vodka tonics and sour beers (current fave is Short’s Brewery Anniv Ale — it’s a Michigan beer. We do good beer.)
 
What Color is your toothbrush: It’s white. It’s a Sonicare kind that beeps at me if I don’t brush long enough. It’s very judgey. 
 
Do you have a favorite cartoon character: I may or may not have a Winnie the Pooh tattoo on my back that I got when I was 19. If this were true, Pooh would be my fave. Ah, youth. And stupidity. 
 
Coffee or tea: I drink both, but coffee is my preference. We have a fancy new cappuccino machine that I can’t work but if I knew how, I’d tell you that cappuccinos are my favorite. 
 
What time do you go to bed: We are creatures of habit. That habit includes biding our time until around 8:55, at which point one of us says, “want to go upstairs?,” and the other one nods enthusiastically. Then we both read our phones, defying all sleep experts, for like another hour, then crash around 10. It’s amazing and very sexy.
 
Fave Reality TV show: Does HGTV count? I love Fixer Upper. Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal. If HGTV doesn’t count, it’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because I’m a terrible human.
 
What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? My grandpa was a professional wrestler from the 1950s-1990s. His name was The Sheik and he wrestled all over the world. My dad wrestled too but much less famously. Our family friends included people like Andre the Giant. Home movies for me were things like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54ZrSoBemVU (yeah, that baby is me).
 
Dinner guest: All of the JSS Tribe. Seriously. You guys are rad and I love all of you. I need a bigger table, but we’ll make it work.
 
Anything else you’d like to share? Just that my motivation for getting the bike was and is to lose about 50 pounds (down 20 so far). I never knew I’d actually GAIN so much more through this amazing community. That was super sappy. I can’t help it.

FACEBOOK LIVE FUCK UP-A RECAP

Hey guys-

Soooo if you tuned in tonight at 7:30pm for Facebook Live…Jenn and I were missing. We were live…just in the wrong place! We talked with about 50 people for 40 minutes before we realized we weren’t on the tribe page…we were on JSS’s personal Facebook page. Unfortunately, we had to delete the entire video and start over. Hence why on the feed we did go live with, I was a bit off my game.

I did a bunch of prep and wanted to recap everything we discussed on our first broadcast, so here goes:

NEWBIES

-If you want to make the most of the JSS Tribe…post, comment, get involved. If you that’s not for you, no worries, check out the page, take what you want from it and move on.

-If you are reading this then you have found this website. Included here we have the following:

All of Jenn’s playlists (or you can follow me on Spotify at kristycarruba)

Leaderboard Get to Know You (if you want to participate, let me know I’ll send you the form!)

Calendar – we try to keep it current

Giving section – if you are fundraising, let us know we’ll post here

Jenn’s (and our) favorite things

JSS ride database- Looking for a ride, an artist or a theme? Check out the database

-Facebook Page posting rules.

Now that the page has grown to over 5000 members it’s important that we monitor what you’re all posting and stay on track. Please remember this isn’t your personal page. Stick to rides, each other, Peloton, JSS etc. If it’s your son’s Bar Mitzvah…Mazel Tov but the pics don’t really belong on our page. If we take something down, we’ll let you know.

-We have a store

Here’s the link: https://www.zazzle.com/s/jss+tribe

-Andi Bags 20% Off Coupon good until end of June

-Milkshake…if you have any pics, any feedback, any endorsement, let us know, we want to share with the Milkshake folks

-We talked about having a JSS Tribe HRI separate from the Peloton one. This would give people the opportunity to take more rides with Jenn and with other instructors, enjoy the city, enjoy each other for more time. We def love the idea and are thinking it would be October of 2019. Yes it seems like that’s forever, but it’ll be here before you know it!

-Jenn agreed to an ALL REQUEST SING -A-LONG Finale! Look for details coming soon!

-Jenn is off the last weekend of June through 4th of July. More info on her Summer vacation days to come but this is what we know for now.

-Hat orders are being taken…be patient!

ASK JSS

We answered quite a few of your questions on our first broadcast.

  1. Stephanie Caputo: Any fun trips for either one of us this Summer?   Jenn said no. I’m going to LBI in August for 2 weeks
  2. Darci Humphries asked if Jenn was going to bring back Music Legends rides. Not at this time, but check out the ones that are in the database already.
  3. What would Jenn be doing if she didn’t teach at Peloton? Prob something in the music biz but not for a corporation.
  4. Teena Teens asked what Jenn’s fave music genre is. She loves Hip Hop, she loves rock, she’s a Deadhead and of course loves Bruce. She likes it all.
  5. Katie Rossino asked: How many rides do we think Jenn’s taught? About 1000 but nobody knows for sure and there won’t be a milestone ride.
  6. Heather Sooy Dean asked who Jenn would want to have dinner with and she responded with either Bruce Springsteen or Howard Stern.
  7. Jen Farhat asked who Jenn would ride with if she had a bike. She responded with Alex, Cody and maybe Robin if she wanted an ass woopin. Also maybe Ally.
  8. Branda Kraemer asked if Jenn had a bucket list? Jenn said she’d just love to travel.
  9. Godnick asked John Oliver or Bill Maher. Jenn watches both (I only watch John Oliver)
  10. Robin Tillman asked for an update on Tony the garage guy…he’s a bit friendlier but no massive change
  11. Heidi Collet asked why the rides now have more descriptions like 60s Rock etc. Due to licensing, the instructors can’t use the artists names in the descriptions so this is the best they can do at this time to describe the ride
  12. Cristina Ribeiro asked if Jenn creates her own arms segment and the answer was yes. Jenn also revealed that more arms were coming as is some Beyond the Ride classes!

Other topics covered:

Pizza, Howard Stern, Dax Shephard, Nobu, Jenn’s shoes, Jenn’s needs a haircut, the new studio coming is going to be insane, Jenn will never teach a tread class, Jenn likes sushi and I am sure there is more, but I’m exhausted.

Let me know if you have questions…once again…apologies for the fuck up!

Love you guys!

    At the ripe old age of 35, not long after my fourth sub-four hour marathon, I had a quadruple bypass.  After my heart surgery my cardiologist said to me, “you didn’t die; you have to live.”  I have subscribed to that mantra ever since, and it’s gotten me through a heart attack at 45 (on a spinning bike, from which I had to be medevac’d by helicopter), visual impairment at 50, two stents at 52, and losing 40% of my blood internally last April.

    Anything else you’d like to share?  In 2012 I was asked to accept the Award of Courage from Sloan Kettering Hospital, despite the fact that none of my many design defects included cancer.  My friend and role model, Michael J Fox, introduced me, and the video of that speech led to the opportunity last March to give a TedTalk.   Both my Award of Courage and TedTalk speeches speak to my philosophy in life, and my mantra:  “you didn’t die; you have to live”

      Dinner guest – All of my grandparents, Martha Stewart, JSS, Robin Arzon, and John Foley.

      I just want to say thanks to JSS and to this tribe. I work in a job where so many women see each other as competition, and I don’t like how that feels. I’ve learned how to support others by watching all of you. There have been so many times over the last year when I’ve needed to emotionally support friends and family and even stand up for myself, and this tribe has given me so many ways to do this. By watching how support from strangers can go such a long way, I’ve been able to be there for people in my life so much better.  I’ve also learned that cheering for someone doesn’t mean I’m putting someone else down.  So thanks, everyone!  I’m a better friend and mom because of all of you. I live and love unapologetically because of you all. I love all of you for your support of me and especially of my dad when he took me to NYC and did 5 rides in 3 days with me. He still talks about it.  You’re all wonderful people, and I really think we need a JSS Tribe HRI. I’d be the first to sign up (and if it’s the weekend of November 9, that’d be great because I’ll already be there for my bday! Hint! Hint!). XOXO to all!

Anything else you’d like to share?

LOVE this bike that goes nowhere! Because of my business, I get to travel around much of the country (but not yet to NYC…!) and have connected with Pelofriends around the country. Rode outdoors with Chris Merrill in Salt Lake City (who, may actually become a neighbor!); got to meet Dave Barnett and his wife Victoria at the Dallas Cowboys/Philadelphia Eagles game. Also rode in a few of the Peloton Showrooms in Dallas, Austin and Troy/Detroit. All these staff have been superb and welcoming to allow a wayward visitor the chance to get a ride in!

LOVE this JSS Tribe for all their love, support and positive vibes! And I can’t forget our great Admin’s for their dedication and hard work.

Then there’s Jenn Sherman… Since I started back in November of 2016 with your NFL rides, I’ve become hooked on your down to earth approach to spinning, it’s more like riding with a best friend than an instructor, LOVE THIS!

LEADERBOARD GET TO KNOW YOU…WHO IS SUBMARINER?

Ever since I’ve been riding, every time I heard the Leaderboard name SUBMARINER, I thought it was a dude who wears the Rolex my husband wants…did you think think the same thing???  LETS FIND OUT IF I WAS RIGHT!

Meet Rich Essenmacher aka SUBMARINER

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name…

“Submariner” comes from my 20+year Navy Submarine career. The camaraderie of the submarine is unmatched in civilian life- but some of the things the JSS Tribe does are similar, and that is why I am part of it.

My military career is still such a large part of who I am- there was no other name I even thought of.

Personal Info:

Name: Rich Essenmacher

Where do You live? Norfolk, VA

Married/Single? Married to my lovely bride Jai

Kids/Grandkids? 6 kids ages 12 to 32. No grandkids

Pets? One Cat, “Mittens” (see picture- he loves my wife’s yarn)

Working/Retired? Retired from the US Navy in 2001. Currently part of Quality Department for a large defense contractor.

Motto in which you live by? Stop whining. I also hate “whoa be me” attitudes.

  • How long have you had your bike20 months.
  • Where in your home do you rideExercise room

  • Dinner guestJerry Seinfeld, it would be just a riot.

Anything else you’d like to share?  Living on the Lafayette River in Norfolk produces some beautiful sunsets. A picture is attached.

I taught spin for 10+ years. After moving to Norfolk I stopped spinning all together for 2 years. I missed the workouts so I finally gave in a bought a bike. My first ride was with JSS. I almost exclusively ride with her because her music and teaching style are exactly how I taught spin for all those years. Well, maybe not the country music…….

I would love to teach a class in studio someday. Wish that were possible.

NFL players need to stand the f— up for the anthem. I served and many have died for freedom of speech- on your own time, not while we are paying your salary. Was that too strong? ………. Too bad.

GoFundMe for Hannah Marie Corbin’s mother

Our friends Paige and Nancy have started a GoFundMe campaign for Hannah’s mom:

Greetings, Tribe!!! Wasn’t that another great JSS Live segment? I just love those :). I would like to throw our house into the hat for an “On the Road” segment! But wait until the pool is open and up to temp! Hell, we can even make a cooking segment out of it – I’ll cook on my Big Green Egg!!! But I digress..

As you may have heard, another one of our amazing instructors, had some great news recently. Hannah Marie Corbin’s mom Sharon recently underwent surgery for a kidney transplant. She had been waiting for quite a while for this miraculous gift, and I believe it happened last week! I am so very relieved for Hannah and her family, but there are still hurdles they will have to jump over. Organ transplantation is an amazing gift, but also stressful on many levels.

I know this firsthand, as my father was the recipient of a kidney from a living donor back in October of 2004. Nancy and I were with he and his wife the entire time, and for a while after the surgery. It is pretty darn incredible to witness the gift of an organ given willingly by a living donor. I honestly do not know if I could be so unselfish… There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to transplantation, and with these unknowns can come a lot of expenses. This is where Nancy and I would like to join forces to help Hannah and her family.

Nancy and I would like to invite any JSS Tribe members who would like to help, to make a donation to a Go Fund Me page that was set up about 10 months ago for Hannah’s mom. Nancy and I will match any donation made between now and February 1st by JSS Tribe members dollar for dollar up to $5,000.00. In order to signal us that the donation was made by a JSS Tribe member, please use the hashtag #JSSTribeforHMC . . . On February 1st, we will match the contributions of this tribe. You can donate anonymously if you like, just make sure you use the hashtag in the comments section – along with any other message you would like to send to Hannah and her family.

Our Peloton family is amazing, and we all pull together when needed. Let’s show a little Tribe-to-Tribe love!!! Thank you all so very much for your amazing support – always!!!

Hakuna_ Moscato

I had always loved the phrase “Hakuna matata”  which many of you might know from “The Lion King”…meaning “no worries”.  Well I ran across the phrase Hakuna Moscato online, which is a play on that, meaning “Drink wine” or “more wine please”.  It immediately resonated with me, because riding and drinking wine are my favorite ways to relax, de-stress and have no worries!

  24. What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I went to University of Vermont and don’t know how to ski!  Also, I was initially against buying the Peloton when my husband wanted to,  and now am totally addicted.  I haven’t been on the elliptical or run for months!

  25. Dinner guest – Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake TOGETHER

Anything else you’d like to share?  I am a mostly OD rider, but love this community and tribe and honored to be chosen to do this. I thought I had only done “a handful” of live rides, so was shocked when I read my year in review to see that I had actually done 20.  Of course JSS was my top instructor.  I sincerely feel like she is my friend, who I would totally hang out with.   My girls definitely know her too.  I wish I had had the chutzpah to ask for a picture when I rode with her in the studio, but at least I introduced myself!

I have been very fortunate in that I have lived all over the world. In London, NYC, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Clearwater and now Dallas. I really believe that living overseas broadens ones outlook and makes us appreciate things more.
After living in all of those places I can honestly say that living in the USA is a real privilege, an honor, and the only place I want to be.

JSS Tribe HRI & HRI Weekend-General Info

Lots of questions coming out of the big Peloton HRI Announcement.

I will do my best to answer as many of them here as I can:

Last year was my first HRI Event. On Friday night there was a Peloton cocktail party at Chelsea Piers and all instructors attended. So did Peloton execs including John Foley! I don’t remember what time in-studio rides ended but there were in studio rides most of the day and none in the evening.

Chelsea Piers party was top notch. Appy’s and Open Bar. Step and Repeat for photo opps and lots of people meeting who have never met before. We all received name tags with both real name and LB name. People got very dressed up. I was definitely UNDER dressed but that’s my M.O. most of the time anyway.

On Saturday and Sunday there were rides and Beyond the Ride classes.

The way sign-up worked last year, was that Peloton released a $50 package that included the cocktail party, 1 Ride and 1 Beyond the Ride over the course of the weekend. Jenn’s classes went FAST however after the frenzy died down, Peloton allowed members to purchase additional classes where there were openings.

Peloton did provide hotel recommendations, restaurant recommendations and fun things to do for those visiting from out of town. I’m sure they will do this again.

I have NO idea at this point about the following:

-What this years package consists of

-How much this years package costs

-When this years package will go on sale

-What Jenn’s teaching schedule for that weekend will be

What I can tell you is that it was all a ton of fun and I can’t wait for this years event.

Shirley, Getty, Yaya and I are all working hard already to put together a great JSS exclusive Tribe event for all of you and will provide info as soon as we have it. We are looking into hotel ideas, and hope to have our own recommendations too, but remember, we don’t work for Peloton and this stuff is time consuming so we’ll do our best.

Let us know HERE what questions you have. We’ll keep adding to this thread so that you can get all of your HRI facts in one place.

#JFDI and book your trip now!

Who’s Who in the JSS Tribe? Let’s Find Out!

Ever hear JSS call out a leaderboard name and say “Great name” or “Wonder what’s behind that?” or WHO IS SUCITUPBUTTRCUP? Well…we do! Coming out of the admins meeting with JSS a few weeks ago we thought it would be fun to pick an interesting leaderboard name and go upclose and personal to find out about the person behind the name. This month, it’s Jennifer Noble…the lb name that started it all!.

Jenn was born in California, moved to Pheonix, AZ and now lives in Nashville Tennessee.

First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name…

Reply from Peloton CTO about LB changes

We know many of you are frustrated by the recent changes regarding visibility of others on the LB when riding OD simultaneously. Kristy sent an email on behalf of the JSSTribe about it to Yony, the CTO for Peloton, and this was his response:

Hi Kristy,
Apologies for the unintended consequences the recent leaderboard change have cost. We have been working diligently to insure the leaderboard’s performance continues to improve and last week’s change was a piece of the puzzle. Please rest assured that we recognize that riding together is core to the Peloton experience and our team is already addressing and working on ways to improve and enhance your experience as it relates to scheduling on demand rides together. We will share more information as it becomes available in the coming weeks. Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

Linda Seltzer (#Lindalous1026) Riding for “Cycle for Survival”

Hi There

Jenn is one of my favorite teachers, and I love being a part of the tribe. I’m raising money for Cycle for Survival, and my link and page are listed below. I would greatly appreciate any size donation, as rare cancers have affected my immediate family… I’ve written about it in my link; but, I lost my brother at age 40 to brain cancer, along with other members of my family. I grew up in NY and am planning to go back late July, and can’t wait to hopefully meet Jenn and take a class or two while I am back there. I have had my Peloton just over a year, and love it so much!!! What an incredible community.

Thank you very much for considering
