In January of 2020, I joined a two month free trial of Peleton.
I didn’t take advantage of all parts of it but I did enjoy the indoor bike rides and the outdoor runs (I don’t have a treadmill.)
But it was not enough to pay for it. So I did not renew my membership.
I posted why here.
However, on July 31, I signed up for a Peleton membership again for 3 months.
And here’s why:
1.They offered a 3 month membership for the price of one month.
Hey, I’m cheap. What can I say?
But actually I wanted to see the changes and if it worked out better for me this time.
2. My evening group runs will be ending soon.
I run with a group on Monday, Wednesdays and Thursdays evenings and do my long run or a race on the weekend with others.
But I will be running solo again and will be able to use the Peleton app during my runs.
3. I want to try the app for walking and walk ups/cool downs in addition to running.
I am not sure if these options were available when I first tried Peleton or maybe I just didn’t use them
4. I hope to try out stacking more than one workout especially to make a run longer.
One of my criticisms was than the runs were by time and did not often fit the distance that i wanted to run.
With the “stacking” functionality, I can add a warm up and cool down and even combine more than one running class.
5. I do not belong to a gym so if I could motivate myself, I can take advantage of other workouts in addition to running.
I could take a yoga class or even do some strength training, stretching or cardio.
Happy Running! Did you sign up for the new Peleton trial membership? If you already use the Peleton app, what benefits does it offer you as a runner? Please share.
