If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may remember that I jumped on the Peloton bandwagon during the pandemic. I posted lots of updates throughout the first year, and then a 15-month update and 2 year update. Well, if you can believe it… it’s time for a 3 year check in!
Yup, it was 3 years ago that I downloaded the Peloton app (with a non-Peloton bike) and then 6 months later I upgraded to the official Peloton bike.
To answer the most obvious question – YES, I am still using my Peloton bike and the Peloton app. However, to be as honest as possible, I haven’t hopped on the bike as much as I had the previous year.
In fact, I did over 300 cycling classes in the first 2 years I owned the bike and in year three I only added about 40 more. However, I HAVE been keeping up with my goal of doing something every single day.
Over the spring, summer and early fall, Travis and I did a ton of the walking sessions. Jack and I regularly snuggle up together for a meditation in the evenings. And I’ve still done a variety of cycling, strength training, stretching and yoga sessions too.
Is there room for improvement? Certainly! However, my bike isn’t going anywhere and when my body feels up to it, I can always jump back on.
Things I’m still loving for my workouts:
- My Shimano Indoor Cycling shoes – you can read my blog post review of them here: Upgrading my Peloton Bike Shoes to Shimano
- The Pivot – This is super handy for when I do stretching and yoga, since I can just PIVOT the screen from my bike and use the open space in my office. You can read the blog post where I talked about it here: My Office/Exercise Room Hybrid.
- My full set of neoprene dumbbells (these are great). I have dumbbells in 2lbs, 3lbs, 5lbs, 8lbs and 10lbs and they have all gotten used.
As a goal for 2024, I’m going to try to beat the amount of cycling sessions I did this year!
