My Peloton Bike Alternative; A Great Money Saving Hack

The Peloton Bike!   I saw the commercials and was hooked. Over 10,000 on demand group spinning classes right in the comfort of my own home?  You mean I never have to find someone to watch my kids, get in a car and drive to the gym?  A dream come true – sign me up!  (Plus, I am assuming that it must come with a housekeeper because everyone’s homes seem so neat and tidy.)

Then I saw the price tag…almost $3,000 right off the bat when you add delivery, special shoes, a $468 yearly subscription, etc. Crikey! I wish I could afford it – I really do but I already have a graveyard of exercise gadgetry and workout DVDs in my house (does Step Aerobics,  P90X and Insanity ring a bell to anyone?).  I didn’t want to splurge on a Peloton bike only for it to gather dust in the corner.   What if I got  bored of spinning after a few months?  For me and my track record, it was too much of a gamble and I needed to dip my toes back into exercise with a less expensive bike.

So what did I do?

After loads of research (Amazon reviews, fitness blogs, etc.) I created my very own Peloton experience by using the Peloton App with a Sunny Spin bike and other alternative products. It saved me almost $2,400. So far it works great and I am really enjoying my Peloton workouts.  In fact, I just celebrated my 250th ride on my Sunny.  This is how I did it…

My 250th Ride Using the Peloton App; I Got a Shout Out!

Very exciting news!  I got mt 1st shout-out from Miss Ally Love during my 250th Peloton ride.  I normally only take on-demand classes but with such a milestone, I rolled the dice, crossed my fingers and took a live class hoping to hear my screen name.

Half-way through the class, I was delighted to hear Ally exclaim, “MomJeans1973.  250th on the App.  What’s up?!”

Peloton App; My 6 Month Review

Well, its been 6 months since I started my Peloton journey with my wonderful Sunny bike and I could not be happier.   I cannot say enough good things about the Peloton app (that they now call Peloton Digital).  I have lost weight,  I am sleeping better than ever and I am much more energetic. The classes are interactive and communal but at the same time very intimate.  Also, the instructors rock – they are very motivational and push you to your limit.  I get a lot of email asking about how all the components of my “Peloton alternative” are holding up so I thought I would post a review about some of the items that I recommended in my original Peloton blog.  Read on…
