Tunde Oyeneyin's gear bag helps her step ahead

If there's one thing peloton riders can count on when they compete in any of Tunde Oyeneyin's classes, it's that they'll be pushed to the limit. As someone who used to be 70 pounds heavier than she is today, she knows what's possible with exercise and purposeful action.

Ahead of a recent drive, Tunde Oyeneyin dived into some of her Muscle and Fitness workout essentials, including some mainstays of her skincare routine. The SPEAK author also shared her current literature choices, the plant protein she reaches for after a sweat, and the shoe of her choice for her strength classes.

ON 100% gold standard plant protein

I've been drinking Optimum Nutrition's 100% Gold Standard Plant Protein for a while now. It's my favorite piece and having it in my gym bag makes me feel ready for a workout and feeling refreshed afterwards. It's the perfect way to add plants and protein to my diet (24 grams of protein). I love the creamy vanilla flavor.

protein shaker

I always have a shaker on hand. It's the easiest way to whip up a shake on the go for a pre-workout snack or post-workout recovery. Just add your ingredients, drop the ball in and shake it. It provides great consistency on the go.

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.

I never leave the house without them! I love my playlists and music is such a powerful motivator for me. Use them while you're walking down the street or running errands, and you'll be amazed at how your music can help you pick up the tempo in normal moments and get more exercise during the day.

Pocket app

It's an app I love and use everywhere I go, especially when working out. It's a place to store all the things you find on your phone in one place. It has a listening feature that allows me to listen to articles while I work out.
