Default Any peloton riders here

Anybody else here have one? We just got ours and I just did my first 15min ride. Heck of a cardio workout.

Ouch, thatís what I was hesitant on so hopefully this one doesnít turn into a coat rack.

After 3 knee surgeries and lower back surgery, running for me really doesnít work out.

Some of my colleagues have one and they say they love it. I do a lot of street and mountain bike riding so haven’t bought one as I think I would be bored with it as I enjoy the outdoors. They didn’t do riding of any kind prior to the Peleton so they don’t know what they are missing.

Only $39 And you can have up to 15 people on one membership so the whole family can set up a profile.
Thereís a bunch of other stuff on the app that you get access for stretching, yoga, ect that probably wonít get used

Check out a Wahoo Kickr. You ride your own bike but can do rides on Zwift and other software.

You can log into the app on your phone and ride any bike (at hotel or mountain bike ect...)
Same with the treadmill. Donít actually have to buy theirs you can use any or free run outside
Just using the app to follow the workout program on when to add resistance, speed up, slowdown, sprint ect...

Weíre loving ours, other family members have been able to create profiles on our account for free and have access to all the workouts also.
I still hit the gym in the morning but try to ride the bike, do the core program, or one of the stretching sessions every night

I know some people, my wife included, who love them. I hate em and spin classes. I love to ride my road bike but absolutely hate stationary bikes and the peloton. Closest I can get is zwift on my trainer and even that is only if weather is bad

But if it gets you moving and excited about it, have fun. Pretty good podcast with the founder on how I built this. They basically stole the idea from a cycle studio in nyc and when he wasn’t having great sales jacked the price up... higher price made people perceive it as better and they started flying off the shelves

Anybody have any thoughts on the Nordictrack bike versus the Pelaton? I be been running on my Nordictrack incline trainer for just over a year. Really like the iFit program tha lets me ride or run roads and trails that are in Google Street View. Pretty good at terrain following too. Wonder if the Pelaton has anything similar? Even was able to run past my childhood home in Antlers, Ok. Saw some jerk painted it pink???

We chose the Nordictrack s22i over the Peloton after quite a bit of research. About the same price, but more Convenient features that we figured we would like. It has been a good purchase so far for sure
