Tunde Oyeneyin’s gear bag keeps her in touch with forward pedaling


If there’s one thing Peloton riders can count on when taking one of Tunde Oyeneyin’s classes, it’s that they’re going to be pushed to their limits. As someone who once weighed 70 pounds more than she does today, she knows what’s possible with movement and doing things with purpose.

Ahead of a recent ride, Tunde Oyeneyin dove into some of his workout necessities for bodybuilding and fitness, which include some mainstays of her skincare routine. The SPEAK author also shared her current literary selection, the plant protein she looks for after a good sweat, and the shoe of choice for her strength classes.

Revlon The Gloss & So Fierce! Wide Open Eyes Mascara / Tatcha Face Cleansing Oil / Supergoop Face & Body Lotion SPF 50

Here are some of my staple beauty products that I love to have with me to apply and reapply throughout the day! I always cleanse my face after a workout, followed by a good face and body sunscreen (a must for all skin types). Good skin care and just a little mascara brightens the face in minutes.

I always have a book with me. Right now I’m reading Sarah Gardner’s Daily Jam. JAM is an acronym for Jjust A Museless. All you need is one minute a day to read about ways to be more present in our daily lives.

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant Protein

I have been drinking Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Plant Protein for a while now. It’s my favorite and having it in my gym bag helps me feel ready for a workout as well as recover afterwards. It’s the perfect way to get plants and protein in my diet (24 grams of protein). I love the creamy taste of vanilla.

protein stirrer

I always have a shaker handy. It’s the easiest way to make an on-the-go shake for a pre-workout snack or post-workout recovery. Simply add your ingredients, drop in the ball and shake. This gives great consistency on the go.

Nike towel

If you’ve ever taken a class with me, you know the sweat is real. I always have 2 towels on hand! This one is really soft and super absorbent.

Nike Water Bottle

Hydration is key, always. I usually like a squeeze water bottle with a push-pull spout for easy drinking on the go and on the bike.

I bring a pair of Metcons with me to my strength classes. These have excellent cushioning, support and traction.

I never leave home without them! I love my playlists and music is such a strong motivation for me. Use them while walking down the street or running errands and you’ll be amazed at how much your music can help pick up the pace during ordinary times for more movement during the day.

Pocket app

It’s an app I love and use everywhere I go, especially while working out. It’s a space to save all the things you find on your phone in one place. It has a listen feature where I can listen to articles while I workout.

This backpack is basically stuck with me – I don’t go many places without it. It has enough room for all my essentials and helps me keep all my gear organized.
