Peloton’s Leanne Hainsby Celebrating 1 Year Of Zero Alcohol Consumption

Peloton coach Leanne Hainsby joyfully marked an entire year of abstaining from alcohol. Her announcement, conveyed through both Instagram and Facebook, read:

“One whole year without alcohol! 🙋🏼‍♀️ This day signifies the eve before I received the news about the potential presence of breast cancer. It’s the day preceding my seeking a second opinion, leading to subsequent scans and, ultimately, my diagnosis a few days later. Today is also the day I made the decision to stop consuming alcohol.”


Leanne further explained that her decision to abstain from alcohol initially aimed at supporting her health during cancer treatments. However, she continued the practice after noticing positive changes in herself. She expressed, “It swiftly evolved into the best choice I made for myself because all the positive things people mention about quitting drinking remain true for me.”

For Leanne’s complete caption, check out the end of this post. Her revelation about battling breast cancer emerged earlier this year, nearly six months after her initial diagnosis in August 2022. Emphasizing the importance of seeking a second opinion, Leanne highlighted that it ultimately saved her life. At the age of 35, she received reassurances initially when discovering a lump in her breast, only to later find out that everything was not okay. Interestingly, during this period, she also opted to give up alcohol and is now commemorating a year of being alcohol-free.

Leanne highlighted the positive changes she experienced after deciding to refrain from alcohol, including enhanced mental clarity, increased confidence, improved productivity, and better sleep.

In a notable revelation, she disclosed that this marks the first occasion she’s publicly discussed her choice to quit drinking. Leanne emphasized that this decision was personal and might not suit everyone, stating, “What works for me doesn’t have to work for you. We all define fun in our own way, and I’m just redefining mine.”

It’s worth noting that Leanne, engaged to fellow Peloton instructor Ben Alldis for a little over two years, recently disclosed their plan to tie the knot by the end of 2024.

A massive congratulations to Leanne for reaching this incredible milestone! Here’s the complete caption from her social media posts:

Celebrating one year of living without alcohol! 🙋🏼‍♀ Today holds special significance—it’s the day before I received the news of a potential breast cancer diagnosis. It’s the day before seeking a second opinion and undergoing various scans that eventually led to my diagnosis a few days later. It’s also the day I decided to quit drinking.

Initially, it was about ensuring my health during potential treatments, but it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. The positive changes people talk about when you stop drinking have proven true for me.

I could go into detail about the benefits, and I will eventually. For now, the standout improvements for me are:

  1. Mental Clarity: The most significant change.
  2. Confidence: Surprisingly, I’m more confident without a drink. Who knew?
  3. Productivity: Fewer hangovers mean more time for productivity and increased potential. Consistency in my week has become a game-changer.
  4. Connections and Quality Time: Meaningful conversations with friends and loved ones. Especially important after the loss of Danielle. Being present in every moment is a priority.

Other notable improvements include better sleep, healthier food choices, increased energy, and improved skin.

I haven’t talked much about being alcohol-free until now. The decision stemmed from intense emotions during the early stages of traumatic grief and shock. Drinking excessively to numb the pain could have been a disaster, especially with a cancer diagnosis shortly after. Instead, I chose to confront those feelings, seek therapy, and focus on self-care and education.

I’m not here to dictate choices; we all have our own struggles. What works for me may not work for others. We each define our version of fun, and I’m redefining mine. This feels like a significant achievement and a proud moment in my life.

It hasn’t always been easy, and it took time to gain confidence in saying ‘I don’t drink.’ Yet, as someone who loved a good party, I don’t feel like I’m missing out. I still enjoy a good time; it just looks a bit different now. A good kind of different.

So, here’s to this moment, raising a glass of kombucha (in a fancy glass, because why not?). Cheers! 🥂✨
