Robin Arzon headshot over blue starMeet Robin Arzón: Best-Selling Author, Peloton Instructor & Executive, & Ultramarathoner!

Robin Arzón wears many capes – Peloton instructor and executive, ultramarathoner, and best-selling author. Robin, of Cuban and Puerto Rican heritage, is also a new mom and a person living with type 1 diabetes.

New York Times best-selling author of “Shut Up And Run”, Robin discovered her passion for athletics after healing from a traumatic experience through movement. She fearlessly left behind a successful law career to embark on new adventures in the health and wellness space, and has since reinvented herself into an avid ultra-marathoner and renowned fitness coach.

As Vice President of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor at Peloton, she believes that sweat transforms lives, and her story is living proof. She successfully partners with major lifestyle and fitness brands, using her powerful influence to connect directly with consumers through social media. In 2020, she was named one of the most influential people on Fortune Magazine’s “40 Under 40” list. Her superpower is to redefine, reform, and rethink possibility through movement.

 Jodi Rogers            

An esteemed sales record, a tireless work ethic, and many, many satisfied clients – these are just a few of the adornments of Jodi Rogers’ illustrious career as a real estate broker. What is her secret to making it in life as a business woman, not to mention a mother and philanthropist? “I don’t take myself too seriously. I like to laugh, love to have fun, and I adore taking care of my people.”

Jodi’s passion for selling real estate has spanned two decades and hundreds of homes. Trends may come and go, but good representation never goes out of style. As a Colorado native, Jodi has deep roots in the community, and is very familiar with all the areas, home styles, and amenities Denver is proud to offer. She stays up to date on market trends with continuing extensive research and education, helping her remain at the top of her game, so her clients benefit from her advice and advocacy. Her consistent, compelling, premier marketing gives clients an impressive edge against the competition.

In her spare time, Jodi takes advantage of all Colorado’s beautiful outdoors have to offer. A gourmet cook, a voracious reader, an accomplished gardener, and best of all Mom & fur Mom; she remains heavily involved in her charities for the homeless and The Women's Foundation of Colorado – work that feeds her soul.
