Happy New Year!
Finished up my 200th Peloton Ride this morning tackling the 30 Minute Calvin Harris ride hosted by trainer Ben Alldis. And not only was it my milestone 200th ride but it was also my new 30 minute PR on the Peloton! Not a bad way to start off the year.
I am an outdoor runner through and through. I can’t do a treadmill as the monotony is tough to tackle and I need to feel the fresh air while pounding the pavement. We have an elliptical that I use from time to time but do so while reading a book to pass the time. We decided to get a Peloton pre-pandemic and it has honestly been a game changer.
With a full library of cycling classes and live rides, I have found the Peloton to be a great way to cross-train and mix things up. The instructors are all great and the classes vary in terms of intensity, style, time and music. The playlists alone are an awesome benefit of the Peloton and the sweating that takes place on the bike truly is remarkable.
In addition to the rides, we love the meditation sessions that are available and are religious users of the meditations when falling asleep; perfect way to close out the day. There are also walking classes, running courses, stretching and workout classes that all comes as part of the bike package and monthly subscription fee. The monthly fee is comparable or better in terms of price than a gym and you can do it from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The Peloton has proven to be a nice cross-training option to supplement my running and I highly recommend it. If you are interested in a Peloton, please visit their website by clicking here. If you use my referral code of ED2KA4 you will save $100 on your Peloton purchase!
