The holidays are right around the corner and I would have predicted that the Peloton bike would be this year’s No. 1 gift for home exercise enthusiasts; however, with reported shipping delays of up to 4 months it may be time to find another (and possibly more affordable) spin bike.
Peloton is undoubtedly the leader in the spin-at-home movement and they only grew in popularity during the pandemic. But as we know, not everyone can afford to buy a Peloton bike and then pay its $39 monthly fee. (I can’t, that is for sure – its just not in the budget.) As I’ve explained over the past couple of years, 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 their own less expensive bike. If you follow my blog posts, I’ve been preaching about how great the Peloton App is for a while now. It’s truly wonderful.
If you are thinking of giving someone an exercise bike this Christmas but can’t go all in with the Peloton or don’t want to deal with shipping delays, there are many other types of bikes out there at various price points that can be paired with the Peloton App. I tried a bunch before I bought my Sunny and here is what I found.
