Our Christmas present to ourselves in 2020 was purchasing a Peloton Bike+. My only regret is that we didn’t buy it sooner. Here are some of the reasons why I love the Peloton so much.
Space: it takes up hardly any room. They recommend having 2 feet on all sides of the bike, but ours is in a much smaller space and it works just fine.
Apparel : since you’re working out in your own home, I’m comfortable just working out in yoga pants and a sports bra.
Commute: I am a lazy person who loves exercise. My biggest barrier to working out has always been getting in the car to go to the gym and “wasting” time commuting. With the Peloton, my commute is literally up the stairs, so I don’t have any excuses. The naptime hustle is real!
Privacy: you can moan, grunt, yell, sigh, swear, etc. as loud as you want during class without judgement. Unless you live really close to your neighbors…
Time: sometimes you want to get in a quick workout but you only have 10 minutes. With Peloton, there’s something for everyone. Maybe a 15 minute HIIT class, or a 20 minute recovery ride, or go all-out with a 60 minute bike bootcamp.
Other classes: Peloton offers strength, core, no-equipment cardio, barre classes, and the list goes on! My personal favorite are the meditations. I’ve been doing a sleep meditation every night before bed. I went from having to take Benadryl before bed to be able to fall asleep, to barely being able to finish a 20 minute meditation. It’s changed the sleep game for me!
Right now, Peloton is offering two months free of their app, if you’d like to try out some of their classes. If you decide to order a bike or treadmill, I have a referral code (BPVY4W) that will give you $100 off of accessories, if you purchase the equipment.
If you have a Peloton, follow me on the app! My leaderboard name is @katootah
