Adrian Williams Taught His First Live Class Following Surgery

You may have related to our recent article regarding the challenges of returning to exercise after an injury, pregnancy, or some other life event that kept you from keeping up with your ideal workout routine. 

Peloton instructor Adrian Williams can also identify with this struggle – in fact, his live 20 Minute Roll Call Glutes & Leg Strength class on June 20th at 7:30 AM EST  was his first live class back since he had surgery in April to correct a bone spur in his elbow.  An Instagram post in April showing Adrian with a sling on his left arm gave us a “quick life update” where, with his trademark positivity, Adrian urged members not to skip their workouts and reminded us that we could still access his classes on demand if we wanted a great workout.   An Instagram post from today includes a picture of Adrian jumping into the air, announcing tomorrow’s class. 

We’re glad Adrian took the time to follow his body’s cues (and most likely his doctor’s advice!) but we definitely missed being able to work out with him live.  Adrian’s Thunder 45 classes are also very popular and effective, and you can take his live 45-minute Thunder 45 bootcamp tread class on Monday, June 26th at noon EST to get your whole body moving!  

Thank you, Adrian, for “coming back” and for reinforcing that taking time to heal is the only way to come back stronger than ever!
