Who else is pumped for the new PeloStick? It looks AMAZING! I used to love bouncing on a pogo stick with my friends when I was a kid!  I’ve included pictures and some other stick-related information below….

From everything I’ve read, jumping on a pogo stick for a minimum of 210 minutes a day helps:

• Mental health;

• Firm your butt and thighs;

• Weight loss; and of course

• Strengthens core and back muscles.

I’m assuming group classes will begin once the studios open back up after the pandemic.

The Power Zone classes (‘PogoZones’) will be intense!

Hi Gang,

Its been almost two years since I started using the Peloton App with my own Sunny Spin Bike and my Wahoo cadence and speed sensors.  What an amazing experience.  I am in the best shape of my life and more importantly I have proven to myself that I have a passion for spinning – I am so happy with the variety of Peloton class options, have exercised my butt off and the bike didn’t turn into a clothes hanger.

Now I am considering an upgrade.  Why?  For no reason in particular.  My Sunny still works great.  I just want to move to more of a commercial grade exercise bike.  I have stashed away $100 per month for the past two years and I am deciding between a Keiser M3i and of course, the Peloton.


After doing a LOT of research comparing and contrasting the two spin bikes – I thought I would share what I found.

Are you considering getting your significant other a Peloton exercise bike for Valentine’s Day?  What a great idea!  While prices are down for first-generation Pelotons, there are still other options to consider.

And if you are reading my blog, you are probably looking for a cheaper alternative to the Peloton. I get it – you may not be able to afford to buy a Peloton bike and/or want to pay its $39 monthly fee.  I didn’t want to, that is for sure.  That is where the genius of their Peloton App comes into play.   For only $12.99 per month, you can access all of the same live and on-demand classes on your own bike.  Brilliant.  There are a bunch of other bikes out there that can be paired with the Peloton App.  I tried a bunch before I bought my Sunny and here is what I found.

Although Christmas calories do not count, you may be looking for some new ideas to get back into shape or lose some weight.

I thought I would share some of my at-home exercise hits and misses over the years.  Here is my review of  Peloton (of course), Insanity,  Core de Force, T25, and others.

Note, you can stream all of these programs online for a monthly fee; however, owning the DVDs (like I do) is cheaper in the long run.

A departure from my usual Peloton musings.  I wrote the original post 4 years ago when we first visited Disney.  This was trip No. 2 and it did not disappoint.  We loved all the new Star Wars additions and with the kids a few years older, we had more rides at our disposal (for example, The Tower of Terror!).  I have to think that all of my Peloton training helped me walk the 9 miles a day through the parks!  New pictures added.

2017 vs 2021

Post Updated 2021

This is not your typical Walt Disney blog where the author tells you where to stay, where to eat and what rides to take.  There are thousands of those blogs.  (Although we stayed at the Beach Club again).   This blog is all about what to BRING to Disney.  By buying in advance we saved a load of money and it was easier than having to go shopping once we landed or checked-in.  Have fun.  Like they say, Disney World is magical!  We had a great time!

After 550 rides with my first love – this Sunny Exercise Bike – I’ve finally taken the plunge and treated myself to a Keiser M3i.  It is a beauty!   My Sunny was still in great shape and in fact, I gave it to a good friend.  I just wanted something new and shiny now that I proved to myself that I am in this for the long hall.  According to my calculations, I think spent about $0.75 per ride with over 500 rides.
