Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

I loathe the entire concept of the Peloton. Which probably means I’d end up liking it. I’m surprised at all the enthusiasm on here for it. But I think thats great, especially since it means everyone’s exercising and enjoying it.
I have a broken (won’t turn on) recombinant bike in my basement that provides just enough resistance for a good, sweaty workout. I use it in winter. Maybe I’ll swap it out for a Peloton one of these winters.

I was using an old school spin bike for the last year and this is a big upgrade but I am ultra competitive and workout 6 days a week. I wasn't a big believer in Peloton because I thought it was just a fad for people that buy stuff and use it as a coat hanger. But with the way my wife and I work out, I see us using this a ton. We workout so much it is sometimes hard to keep it fresh, the more the options the better.

I am not a big equipment guy either. We do have a treadmill but besides that it is basically free weights, box jumps, push ups and pull ups.

I hate Jen Sherman.

Peloton users...I know you're feelin' me right now.

What do you consider an old school spin bike? I bought a mid-upper range Sunny spin bike a couple weeks ago. My weightlifting is on hold due to a recent rotator cuff surgery (and likely upcoming one on the other side). Needed something to try to stay in shape since I can't do upper body workouts for a while.

I still don't see the need for the monthly fee and riding with other people and all that. I ride until I'm tired of it, at my own pace, while watching TV or listening to music.

Old school= no electronics. It was made for serious cyclist. We had it for about 12 years. It was a good workout and I pushed hard but never really knew where I was at.

Like I said I am ultra competitive so I like that part of the program so far. (my goal is to get in the top 3% on the rides right now I am about 6%-9%) I also like the instructors pushing me.

Obviously all personal preference, but so far I am happy with the purchase.

I have noticed our bike+ is harder than my buddies bike. I put solid numbers today but the effort was through the roof.

Just need to keep pushing.

Her 60 minute football pre-game rides are brutal. I haven't gone that long since I tore my meniscus a year ago, but I'm finally at the point were I can manage 30 minute rides again. My leg strength just disappears so quickly when I take just a short break.

Loving the competitiveness of this. Already upping my game!

I got the new bike+ and it is so much harder. I can’t break 400 on it. I have got 398 and 399 but not elusive 400. Just finished 18 days in a row to get to Labor Day weekend. Looking for a nice weekend break and then back to pushing it.

#61 43 days ago

You'll get there I have no doubt. Sometimes the break is the best thing for you.

Hit 404 on the new bike yesterday. Pretty solid. So far, I love this thing and it is making me push hard!

415 is my new best on the Bike+ in 30 minutes and I have biked 26 of 30 days (want that full calendar one day).

No one else has love for the peloton?

I guess I am late to the party as usual.

Have had a my Peloton for 6 months and still enjoying it. I'm still way out of shape but with every Peloton workout I feel better both physically and mentally.

PR’ed today. Hoping to break 500 on the regular bike at some point.

The bike+ is still much harder. I am at 429 on that one.

Have 21 day streak. Want to fill that calendar!

Good job. I love the peloton but lately have been lazy and been doing the scenic rides while watching tv. . Don’t get even half the work out as the spin classes.

#67 14 days ago

people can rag on the bike all they want but like others have mentioned, whatever works for them makes it all worth the cost. For me personally, it has made me shed the pounds and also lose the high blood pressure meds - I don't think my doc had any faith in me actually getting to this point.

if only they had the option to overlay both on the screen. Yes, I need the instructor to get me off my butt but also show me the scenic portion as well.

This is awesome!!

I had high blood pressure and have always worked out (heritdatry) but the last couple months taking it to the next level and my blood pressure has dropped into an acceptable range!
