Yup – I am one of those people now! A Pelotoner, a peloperson, a pelorider … whatever you want to call it – I AM HERE FOR IT!
I ordered my Peloton when they were on “sale” (I say that loosely because it was still an investment) because the new model was coming out and it finally was delivered on October 15, 2020 (yes, I actually remember the day!).
I jumped on immediately and did a 30 minute Britney Spears ride with Cody and it was INCREDIBLE! Man, it really reminded me how much I love riding and how much I missed it!
I use to take spin classes at the local gym YEARS ago, before kids, and never got back into it. Then after starting my job and being in quarantine far too long, I decided it was high time to invest in myself, my health, and my sanity! 😉 And I am SO GLAD that I did!
Since October 15th (and writing today on January 7th), I have completed 103 workouts: 63 cycling classes ; 17 strength classes; 7 mediations; 7 yoga sessions, 6 stretching classes, 2 bootcamps and 1 cardio class. I have hit a 13-week streak and have done 12 consecutive workout days thus far, earning me the 10-week and 10-day streak badge.
You can tell where I live on the Peloton 😉
The bike and the classes are just so much fun! Yes it is hard at times but it is just so much fun!I love the music, the beat, the instructors – all of it! But I specifically pick my classes based on the music, then I look to the instructor.
My favorite instructor is Jess King and The Jess King Experience is my fav! I also love Emma Lovewell, Robin Arzon and Cody Rigsby. Jess King is very motivational and inspirational. She does a lot of motivational talk, which some may not like. Personally, I like it and I honestly don’t hear much because I am listening to the music and focusing on my ride. But she always has a nice mix of sitting and running and her music choice is always great! Emma Lovewell is also so much fun! I love her energy and her music choice as well. Cody is just straight up FUN. He is a hoot to ride with and loves his Britney, much like myself 😉
Here are just some of my favorite cycle classes:
I would list EVERY Jess King Experience but that would be too much! I didn’t add them in this list but they are by far my favorite and every single one of them is so fun!
This cool down ride is a MUST! Sam is wonderful, calming, very “zen” if you will and I just love this quick cool down ride after all of my intense rides.
Leanne Hainsby is just fun to listen to! I love her British accent and for this class, we listen to a Prince song while stretching and I love it!
Every ride I have taken, I have loved! Well … there were a couple that weren’t hitting it for me, but I am VERY picky about the music matching the tempo/speed of the beat and one of the classes I took just didn’t line up and another I wasn’t digging the music – but both I still did it and completed the ride, so it was definitely better than NOT riding.
