The beloved fitness instructor has partnered with noosa (her favorite flavor is honey, by the way) which is always in her fridge and keeps her energized for the day to take on the early morning hours her Today contributor role asks of her.
Speaking with HELLO! about her daily routine, the wellness multi-hyphenate opened up about how she gets ready in the morning with the help of a solid noosa breakfast, what else makes her feel supported besides keeping it stocked in her fridge, and gave an extra special shout-out to her Today "big sister" Hoda Kotb, along with the rest of her NBC family.
"I am like a little kid in that I prepare for school the night before I make sure all my homework is done," Ally says, and that included not only having her clothes out for her early morning call times, but just as importantly, she says: "I know my noosa is in the fridge. I know what flavor I'm eating."
Breaking down her morning routine, she added: "Sometimes I get so specific like today, I woke up this morning at 4am, I taught a 7am 30 minute 90s [Peloton] ride. I went from there, took photos with all of our members, got in the car, took a pre-show call that we do before the Today Show, got to the Today Show, ate my noosa yogurt…" Before joking she even "made sure it was lemon [flavor] to match my orange outfit.
Speaking of the Today Show, Ally noted that it's not just noosa helping her get through the day but also her uber supportive co-stars. Detailing why her relationship with Hoda specifically is so special, Ally declared: "Hoda is like my big sister," adding: "I will say she is hashtag goals. Let's just be honest."
The two first met about eight years ago, when they were both staying at the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort in Playa de Carmen, Mexico, and Ally can still recall her surprise at Hoda knowing her name, and the Today veteran assuring her by saying: "Girl I ride with you [on Peloton], I love your Sundays with Love. I love your classes. You're amazing."
The two stayed in touch, and Hoda was one of Ally's biggest supporters anytime she came on the show. "It makes me so proud of myself to see someone that I admired doing or partaking in the work that I do," the Netflix host said.
She continued: "She will text me if something big [happens] like when I got married, she messaged me, like things like that. There are moments where she will take time out of her busy schedule to recognize my small milestones, or things that I'm doing in life."
Ally says Hoda never let go of the supportive energy once she became an official Today Show contributor this year, and maintained it's what makes her so great, that her personality at work doesn't differ from how she is with her loved ones in her personal life.
"Her home, like outside of work personality is exactly what she is at work," Ally said, adding: "She is the most infectious. She is joyful. You can tell she's grateful. Like she is confident."
Though she noted she didn't know what to expect, and recalled: "When I came on the Today Show, I was nervous because like, I want to make her proud," she remembers Hoda telling her: "You can do this, you're absolutely ready. You were born for this."
"It's really a blessing just to be in her kind of atmosphere," Ally added. "Because she makes me want to be a better person, I see how she talks to everyone on set, how she talks to the guests, how she talks to the camera people, she's genuinely invested and curious, she brings great energy, because she knows it positively affects those around them. And that's what she wants to do is bring joy. Everything that she does leads into that and feeds into that in her personal and professional life."
