The Scoop

We asked riders what they loved most about committing to this challenge – see what they had to say below!

“I have a very busy schedule with a full time job, long commute and four children. I love spinning but was having trouble getting to classes while juggling my busy schedule. Peloton has given me the opportunity to get amazing workouts despite my other commitments. Being able to log on when it’s convenient for me and to have access to the most incredible staff of instructors is incredible! The Back in Rotation challenge (and all Peloton challenges) are extra motivators to keep me on track!”

“What I loved about this challenge was the flexibility to make the rides work within my schedule. I’d love to get in 5-6, 45 minute rides each week, but as a stay at home mom to an active toddler, that just isn’t always doable. Three rides made for the perfect goal to not only plan for, but achieve. Moving forward, I’ll continue to aim for three rides a week and enjoy the weeks where I can fit in bonus rides.”

-Ashlie Dulien / #RydersMommy

“I really enjoyed the October challenge as it provided additional accountability for me! As a wife of a busy cardiologist and mom of 2 boys, both with special needs, Peloton and the community provide amazing motivation and support keeping me physically healthy and getting stronger! We decided to buy a Peloton after I wore out my stationary bike and no other spin bike fit the bill. Little did I know when my husband and I bought this bike that it was so much more than a bike! The relationships, encouragement, love and respect keep me engaged!”

-Coleen Kayser / #Neuronrse

“I began my journey with Peloton almost 1 year ago and have been absolutely thrilled with the Peloton experience. The instructors, challenges, and support team have played a huge role in improving my levels of fitness and confidence. Thank you so much Peloton!”
