158. Christine D’Ercole, Masters World + National Champion Track Cyclist & Peloton Senior Instructor On Racing, Training and Embracing Curiosity Over Judgment

Christine D’ Ercole is a Masters World Champion and five-time National Champion Track Cyclist, as well as an extremely popular and empowering Peloton Senior Instructor. Her fun and motivating classes inspire riders of all different backgrounds and fitness levels to come together and work toward self-love with every pedal stroke. Her intentionally curated (and amazing) playlists (which span a multitude of decades) set the tone, vibe and narrative for every ride.

On this episode of Marni on the Move, Christine shares her inspiring journey from an aspiring model and actress to falling in love with cycling. She talks about her struggles with body image, and how fitness and competition motivated her to fully embrace herself.

During our conversation Christine shares her experience as a professional athlete and how she came to join Peloton—the groundbreaking, popular, and world renowned fitness and entertainment platform. Christine also opens up to me about her recent health scare, and how she’s using her platform as a Peloton instructor to encourage people to take time to care for their bodies. Christine’s inspiring story will motivate you to fully embrace her signature mantra; I am, I can, I will, I do.
