Something I've been considering and wanting for awhile now, I finally decided to go through with it.
I got a Peloton!!
I have been using the Peloton app for quite sometime and riding the bikes at my gym. They did the trick don't get me wrong, but I never knew what I was going to get from the bike I was on that day. Half of the ones at my gym are messed up in some way shape or form... Either the resistance knob was broken where you would need to keep turning it to get a little added resistance or just a touch and all of a sudden you were on Mt. Kilimanjaro! Like what the heck. Some were missing the straps in the shoe cages, so that's sketchy when picking up the speed, and most of the seats were shit... like cracking and totally ripped holes in my leggings. Once that happened I was done! If you know me, you know I love my leggings and most of them are pretty nice. There's no need for destroyed athleisure for pushing yourself to keep that workout motivation strong. Plus with it being wedding year I knew it would just make things easier to have access to a bike in home. So I did it!
I ordered the Peloton Bike+. It's the new new bike of course. If I'm doing it, might as well get the best that's out. I chose to do the monthly payment plan. With everything going on and amongst wedding costs, it just seem to be the best for me personally. There is a monthly bike payment ($70ish) along with the monthly all access cost ($40ish). So it's not crazy cheap, but with what it all offers and still dealing with the current pandemic situation I feel as if it's well worth it. The membership offers much more than just cycling classes! Obviously, I can only use the actual bike for those or the "bike bootcamps" which is a combo of riding and strength training in one. Their great for a combination workout. Peloton also offers: Strength Training, Runs, Pilates, Yoga, Barre, Meditation, and Stretching. I love that I'm able to use the huge screen on the bike to take these other forms of classes though! It's way nicer than just looking on your phone, but the good thing is with the all access membership you still can use your phone if traveling or squeezing it in else where.
If you've been interested in looking into getting one, I would definitely recommend going for it. You do have a 30 day trial or money back guaranteed. So what's to lose really... besides those extra unwanted pounds ;)
I shared a complete full set up of my bike when she got delivered and also a review on my very first ever ride! They're both on my youtube ( I got them shared here below). The cycle shoes were the hardest part about it all. I have never used them before and the clipping in and out mostly was the hardest part. Watch to see how well I did! There is no comparison from the Peloton though to the gym bikes. Like it's unreal the difference between the two. I'd love for you to check out the review to hear it all.
If you look into ordering one for yourself, I have a $100 off accessories code for you "HVNPVN"
