I’m so excited to share a big fitness equipment update that’s happened around here– we got a Peloton bike! I’ve had the bike for about two months now, and I can honestly say…I get what all the hoopla was about.
Before I give you my review on the Peloton bike, I wanted to give you a little insight and history about me. I hate cardio! Particularly running, but any cardio whatsoever has always been my least favorite training to do. Back in 2017, my personal trainer recommended I do cardio in between our weight training days, and (given my disdain for running) he recommended cycling. After my first cycling class, I was hooked! I loved everything about cycling, and for me, the music and the instructor-driven rides took my mind (almost) completely off of the burn. Two years later here we are in 2020 in the middle of a pandemic. Truth be told, I’d been eyeing the Peloton bike for about a year, but once we received the Stay-at-Home Order due to COVID-19, the investment was made.
The bike is sturdy, durable, and as quiet as a mouse! It comes with cleats to lock-in while you ride, and light weights for arm-toning workouts. One of my favorite features is the Bluetooth capability, which allows me to ride while wearing my Powerbeats earbuds. The instructors are great, the music is awesome, and every ride is challenging which I prefer. Alex’s Club Bangers rides are always on point!
I do early morning rides before Doug and Michael wake and they’re never disturbed. When I tell you the bike is nearly silent, I’m not kidding. I ride right next to our bed in our bedroom, many times while Doug is sleeping! That’s right, I found a cozy little corner in our bedroom, and when I wake up there’s my bike, right there in my face to say good morning beautiful, time to workout!
Getting a Peloton bike is the best fitness investment if you’re looking to lose weight, stay fit, or if you just want to get your body more fit and toned. The Peloton App pairs perfectly with the bike and it includes yoga, meditation, running, walking, stretching, the Peloton bike has it all!
All-in-all, I fully back investing in this bike, the Peloton membership, and all it has to offer. Join me on the leaderboard some time! #peloBarbee Happy riding!
