Forget SoulCycle, This Bike Brings the Spin Studio to Your Home
How many times have you wished you could bring your personal trainer into your home or take your fitness classes in your apartment? When you’re done, you don’t have to deal with the locker room, or traffic, or accidentally running into your hot neighbor before you get a chance to shower. Instead, you could just wrap up, get ready and even grab food. Sound too good to be true? Think again, because it’s now possible, thanks to a new company called Peloton.
Peloton manufactures and sells Internet-connected indoor cycling bikes, which let users stream live spin classes into their living rooms, basements and garages. The bike comes with a large touchscreen tablet, allowing aspiring fitness buffs to tune into live classes or watch pre-recorded classes on demand.
Peloton currently has thousands of users across the country, but only one actual studio. People can participate in classes from all over the USA, giving Peloton the potential to radically change the way we work out.
The bike goes for almost $2000, which makes it more of a luxury item than a simple piece of workout equipment. But, if being at home matters, or if you don’t have the time to join a studio, it can be a real boon. Plus the extra $40 a month subscription fee for classes is much less than a regular gym membership would cost.
