    I’m going to make a point to branch out more. I’m pretty sure that Cody, Ally, and Jess King aren’t my style, but I’ve take a class or two with less mentioned instructors like Sam Yo and they were great.

    For now give me Olivia, Emma, and Dennis.

    honestly I like most so I just stopped there and I did bike only or I’d have added Aditi and CT and AW for strength.

    So far I’ve done Emma’s beginner class my first day, then Kendall’s beginner class day two. Today I did a 20min hip hop ride with Alex.

    Will probably do something low intensity tomorrow so I don’t burn out week one.

    Maybe this is possible, but I kind of wish I could do a class without the music. I obviously like having them instructing me, but as a guy who’s still listening to like 2002 era Eminem to get pumped up I wish I could supply my own tunes lol

    I did a “low impact” ride today with Alex. Was thinking it’d be nice for a recovery day on the 4th day of the week. It ended up being my highest output, most calories burned, highest HR, etc since I got it (this week). It was 5 mins longer than the other classes, and I’ll admit I had a hard time going as “slow” as he was instructing but kind of surprised me.

    Also I did the “live/group” class or whatever that new thing is for this, only had 3-4 other people in it but I think that kept me pushing even though it was supposed to be more of a relaxed ride.

    Actually kind of preferred it. Was kind of nice to just do a more steady ride with not a lot of changes to cadence, etc. Probably just because I’m still getting used to being “out of saddle”.

    Low impact are not great for recovery. They are steady rides. If you need ab active recovery day do a recovery ride. Those usually stay at or below 40 resistance and 80 cadence. They are good for when you want to move but don’t want a strenuous ride. On recovery days I’ll do one of those and a couple stretching classes.

    I couldn’t find any recovery rides? Are they called this or something else. This is what I was looking for when I found low impact.

    Filter by “low impact” and “20 minute” rides they are under that. I know Robin, Alley and I believe Hannah have taught them so you can filter by those instructors too. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to search them by recovery alone so they are under “low impact”.

    Just did this one, was pretty solid. I think she might be good for these types of rides, for my normal ones she might be a tad too chilled out though for me.

    Good afternoon Pelo-cult. I can’t think of a better group than you to convince me why I should purchase a peloton over any of its competitors. If this discussion has been had over and over, kindly point me in the direction of those posts. Seems hard for me to justify spending twice the amount for a Peloton than a MyXFitness, but I’m here to listen.

    IDK what a MyXFitjness is so it’s hard for me to argue against that. I’m sure everyone itt will agree that whole peloton experience is more than worth the money. It’s the best health purchase I’ve ever made. Ask questions and we will answer but there are others itt who’ve bought other machines and are also happy. The peloton are well made gym quality machines. It’s a total health experience (strength, yoga, meditation cardio) so you’ll be getting more than just a bike or thread.

    JMO, and I’ll admit from the outset that I’m biased, but I think you’ll regret buying a substitute. Is the Peloton the best in class bike? Yeah, probably. More importantly though Peloton has far and away the best content and community and it’s getting better all the time. If this is a purchase you’re going to use for 5 or 10 years you want to be on board with a company that is making constant investments in software, hardware, and improved content. That’s Peloton. Other companies are being left behind. If the upfront cost is a major determining factor I’d recommend buying a used Peloton sometime after Christmas.

    I’ve also read that the works package usually goes on sale as their Black Friday deal. If so, seems to make sense to wait for that to get the bike +, yes?

    Peloton has announced they do not plan on offering Black Friday deals on hardware or accessories due to order backlogs.

    I’d go +. It’s a nice improvement over the already great original Bike.

    take a live class for your first ride. It will be cool to get a shoutout bookmark that class so you can follow your improvement over time. Take as many different instructors as you can to see who you like. Download the app on your phone so you can take full advantage of the membership. Coo down rides are important so are stretching. Depending on your fitness level and level of comfort on the bike start with some beginner classes if you’re in decent shape and feel good on the bike try some longer classes. HIIT and tabata classes are going to be the most difficult.

    Are the HIIT rides a lot of out of saddle work? Or is it more a higher cadence/resistance for longer period of time?

    Recently I've been doing some HIIT training on my own. 60 second intervals at 85 resistance with 20 seconds in the saddle and 40 seconds out. Has been kicking my ass on longer rides.

    There is some out of the saddle but they are usually higher cadence for 30-45 seconds at a time. The difference between them and tabata is rest. Tabata is 2 to 1 work to rest HIIT is usually 1:1. So say tabata is 30 seconds work to 15 seconds rest while hiit would be 30 work to 30 rest.
