Mom of two

Hi! My name is Lauren and I'm a mom of two. I'm also a mother of a special needs child with autism. My kids are my whole heart, and my son has a lot of needs. Since he was 18 months old, he has been in consistent therapies, speech, OT, ABA, etc. My life revolves around his needs.

I never do anything for myself, and since discovering the Peloton app, it is a time where I can do something for ME, finally. All day long I give to my family, I clean, cook, shuttle to therapies, doctor's appointments and virtual school. It has been a challenging year. I am lucky to still be employed throughout this pandemic, but all extra money goes straight to my family...food, medical bills, medications. There is hardly ever any money left over at the end of each month.

I have found something I love in the Peloton community, even though I don't have a bike. I love the classes that I am able to take and the badges are a fun way to get motivated!

My son is ten years old now, and this is the first time in a decade I have taken time for myself DAILY and I am so happy and proud of that. Putting my health first only makes me a better mom for my children.

I would love the chance to continue on this journey. Thank you for the opportunity!
