Have you heard of the Peloton bikes?
You know, those bikes that you can live-stream spin classes from the comfort of your own home? With a small payment of $1995 plus the monthly subscription service ($39/mo), you can have unlimited spin classes in your living room! With 0% financing, all of this can be an easy payment of around $120/month for 39 months. In addition to the catchy commercial (thanks to Sia), these Peloton bikes pack a big punch. Mostly popular in urban environments, these bikes are taking over condos and apartments everywhere.
Benefits of in home training
First of all, you don’t have to go anywhere. In cities such as Chicago, New York, and Boston there are many winter days where the temperature is low or the snow is high and the last thing you want to do is go outside. Thankfully, with the Peloton bike, you can avoid ever having to go outside again. No excuses for getting a great cardio workout in!
Also, you may feel intimidated at the gym or a spin class studio, so training in the comfort of your own home is ideal. You can sweat and make as many weird noises as you want. No one can judge you for farting, either.
You save time. Think about how long it takes you to get to the gym. On average, people spend at least ten to twenty minutes travelling to their local gym. Instead of wasting time driving or taking the train, you can spend that extra time in any way you’d like after you get your spin on. The Peloton bikes open up a whole new world of opportunity.
You save money. The average spin class in Chicago or New York city costs $20 to $30 each. With the Peloton bike, you only spend $39 a month for unlimited classes.
After visiting my local Peloton store (Oak Brook Center), I had the pleasure of speaking with Nick Rife ([email protected]), a sales pro. He showed me the many features of the Peloton bike and all that it offers. They record every live class, and you can find a class you love out of the thousands of classes they have by filtering based on: class length, instructor, music type, and level of expertise. There are also scenic rides where you can just pedal for fun and not focus so much on the higher intensity stats. In addition to spinning, there are many off-bike exercise classes. You can cast the video to your TV to be able to have more space to workout.
