Meet Peloton’s Robin Arzon!

Robin Arzón is the definition of a fit mom. As the Vice President of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor at Peloton, as well as a professional ultramarathon runner, she’s not afraid to work hard to be her fittest—and is inspiring other moms to get out there and do the same. She’s also a two-time New York Times Bestselling Author, and her newest book, Strong Baby, is available for pre-order and comes out in February. Finally, she’s working on a brand new project – she just announced that she’s pregnant with baby #2, so her 2-year-old daughter Athena will soon have a younger brother or sister! We spoke to Robin about her fitness tips, family life, and more!

Smoothies 101!

Smoothies have been a tried and true favorite among nutritionists and busy moms for some time now – and for good reason. They make a quick and portable breakfast for hectic mornings and you can sneak in the good stuff easily (think: spinach, berries, cauliflower rice, flax seeds). Time saver and picky-eater proof? Win-win. We asked Stefani Sassos, Registered Dietician and Deputy Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Nutrition Lab, for her best smoothie tips—and she even shared her go-to Banana Protein Smoothie.

Meet Aliza Sokolow, Author of a New Book for Picky Eaters!

Feeding our kids and introducing them to new and healthy foods can feel like a part-time job in and of itself. A new book from food stylist, photographer and private chef Aliza J. Sokolow, THIS IS WHAT I EAT: Fun Activities for Mindful Eating is full of activities, journal pages and other fun ideas that will help your kids become great eaters. We spoke to Aliza about her new book, which was inspired by her time working for Jamie Oliver’s Food  Revolution. Plus, she shares her fresh and easy recipe for Israeli Salad that you’ll want to make on repeat.

Meet Heather!

Mom of four and Westporter for over 20 years, Heather is known by many for her incredible work with – and support – of youth sports. From a young age, Heather was a problem solver, an entrepreneur, and loved to get to work. Childhood lemonade stands taught her the ropes, and she has spent almost 25 years now at a large investment bank. When Heather is not in the city (or on a train), she can be found on the sidelines, helping to grow the PAL Lacrosse and Basketball programs, encouraging hundreds of youths to play, to continue trying new things, and to keep standing up no matter how often you fall. Heather likes a good nap, cheese, time with her family, and prays to never be eaten by a shark. Heather hopes to be an inspiration to young women that you can do whatever you want- work hard, take risks, find good role models, and never give up! Thanks for helping so many of us find our way Heather Talbott; Westport is lucky to have you!

Meet Grace

For all those out there who love beautiful interiors and exteriors, you should know Grace and her amazing design business, Roan. After a brief stint in advertising and PR, Grace went back to her roots and got her Masters in Interior Design, and has never looked back! Mom to Clara – with another on the way this fall – Grace and her family are loving Westport, meeting new people, and the chance to fall in love with gardening, an unexpected surprise! In her spare time, Grace loves to play polo, is always up for some old school karaoke, and dreams of vacations in the summer in Nantucket! Grace loves the projects she’s working on, and is always thinking about the next thing she will create, and we can’t wait to see what comes next!

What Happened to Football Star Damar Hamlin?

Were you as scared as we were when you saw what happened to Buffalo Bill’s Damar Hamlin? All parents of aspiring athletes think about their child’s safety—it’s only natural. But when events like what happened to Hamlin take over the headlines, we can’t help but ask questions. Why did this football player’s heart stop on the field at just 24 years old? Was this a true heart attack? How likely is this to happen to my teenager or young adult? What is “commotio cordis,” anyway? We turned to our trusted Connecticut Children’s sports medicine and cardiology experts who helped address these questions and more.
