Unless you’re a full on fitness junkie, staying in shape isn’t always easy. Most people are lazy and don’t have the time or energy to make it to gym each week. If you’re one of these people, the Peloton bicycle might be the answer you’re looking for.
This exercise bicycle is a $2300 permanent addition to your home that will never require you to reattach the chain or repair/replace a flat tire. The bike has a tablet hooked up to the front, offering you thousands of exercise videos as well as one-on-one motivation from a personal trainer. For just $40 a month, the combination of mood setting music and your cycling instructor’s motivational interaction will keep you coming back for more.
What are the benefits?
Instead of having to force yourself to go the gym, the Peloton is already in your lounge, living room, or bedroom for your convenience. You just strap on the Peloton shoes and you’re ready to go.
Having access to a trainer that suits your style at the touch of a button makes it a lot easier to push yourself harder than you would by yourself. With more than 20 instructors, finding the right style of motivation that works for you won’t be a problem. And if you don’t want that face-to-face interaction, you can choose from a number of scenic bike paths to display on the 22 inch (55.8 cm) Android screen sitting on your handlebars to improve your experience. Peloton has also spent $50 million in royalties to provide you with a variety of tunes to go with your classes. The bikes are also aesthetically appealing, making them a welcomed addition to the decorations in your home.
Peloton has also set up a ranking system that’ll have you working harder to climb the leaderboards and unlock more achievement badges, not unlike a video game.
Overall, the Peloton seems to be a great alternative to a gym as well as a unique personalized experience that is likely to have you addicted in no time.
