So we’ve officially had our spin bike and the Peloton app for a little over a month now. I’ve been asked about it a lot lately and figured I’d do a quick update! I can’t sing its praises enough. We didn’t drop the large amount of dough on the “real” Peloton bike because frankly, I wasn’t sure how much we’d like it or use it. We started small with the intention that if we fell in love and used it often – potentially down the road we would upgrade.
Peloton offers tons of on demand classes as well as live spin classes from 6am-8:30pm. They range anywhere from beginner to more advanced. There are various time lengths available as well as types of classes and lots of instructors to choose from. A little something for everyone. I will typically do a 45 min rhythm or live DJ class. Cody Rigsby is my favorite – he’s my spirit animal.
Our Journey So Far
We started out strong – Leep and I both riding once a day. Alternating between live classes and on demand depending on the time of day all while juggling Gunnar. Then I twisted my ankle and right as that was healing… I came down with pneumonia. Right as I was getting comfortable and the soreness [in areas] was wearing off – had to take 10 steps back.
It’s safe to say its been a slow start. I finally jumped back on the bike yesterday evening and remembered how much I loved it. We have our bike set up in the garage with a small TV that we connect to the iPad. With the volume cranked loud and the dim lights of the garage you can really dig deep, jam out and get a good workout in!

This is a marathon, not a sprint. My body after baby isn’t going to just bounce back – after all, it did take 9 months to put on, I created a human, it’s not going to just fall right off. Also – my main priority is focusing on time with my family and staying healthy, not a number on the scale!
