My Peloton Bike Hack! How I saved $2,400 by using the Peloton App with a less expensive bike! Learn how…
Are you considering getting your significant other a Peloton for Valentine’s Day? Before you buy, consider the backlash around Peloton’s Christmas commercial that went viral. The general theme of the outrage was to never, ever get your wife or husband exercise equipment but with the benefit of hindsight and a global pandemic, what a great gift idea it was!
If you are reading my blog, you are probably looking for a cheaper alternative to the Peloton. I get it – not everyone can afford to buy a Peloton bike and then pay its $39 monthly fee. I can’t. 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 many other types of 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.
When taking a Peloton class, knowing your cadence number is a must. While riding, Peloton instructors shout out how fast you should be pedaling – this is what is known as your “cadence.” The actual Peloton bike and other bikes like the Keiser M3i display your cadence. For everyone out there using the Peloton App with a budget friendly bike (like me), you need to get a cadence sensor. But with so many on the market, its difficult to know what to buy.
