I think the instructors are great, but I really wish they would have classes that have minutes-long periods where you just ride and listen to the music. Some of them feel the need to talk literally the whole time and it makes it hard to get into the ride. Everyone I talk to feels the same way so wondering why there is not a whole section of classes that feature this?
YES!!!! It can be really annoying, especially if they feel the need to share some "emotional" story. It feels contrived and even if it isn't, who wants to think about deep, heavy stuff when you're trying to sweat it out?

I am about to do the same thing! The talking is non stop. It’s grueling to try to workout and someone just talking the whole time. I even tried a yoga class today and again... the whole class! Not one break of talking and loud too. I can’t believe they don’t offer a quiet option. Even the more music less instructor is still awful. I want to hear the music and can’t. Super disappointed
I just had my first truly awful experiance with nonstop talking . I actually turned off the volume and finished the last 10 minutes in peace. Hannah Corbin did not shut up for 30 seconds on the vinyl ride . Great music ruined by her non stop blather.

I get it that a lot of shout outs and encouragement is satisfying for many. But I would really appreciate instructors who talk less! It would be great if the shout outs could be muted.

I was excited to use my Peloton, I had to shut Cody off after 10 minutes. I work my a** off and deal with having to listen to people all day. I was looking forward to this being my escape. Super disappointed. I tried a female instructor same thing. Peloton 👎👎

If you're OK with less talking I find that Emma and Ben Alldis are less chatty so you may want to give them a try.

New to the bike and the forum. After reading through the comments I get that there are a wide range of people that use the Peloton and that Peloton is not servicing the those of you that are training or moderate to high end athletes.

For those of us that bought the Peloton to get into shape, the motivational part of the rides, I find to be helpful. I think Peloton has focused too heavily on this market. Most likely their data shows that we are the largest consumers purchasing Peloton's and they are trying to keep us as members.

That said, I do see a point in the distant future for myself when I do get fit that I would like less talking. I also agree that the extra banter is not needed. I use the option for more music than instructor on every ride. Though I do want to hear them for the queues.

Has anyone sent a request to Peloton requesting less talk for high end rides?

Peddle on my brothers.

I totally agree with you I bought this bike to work out and train I don’t need therapy sessions I don’t need dance lessons I don’t need to hear about their past family things. They talk too much . The female instructors tend to be the worst. Peloton has received many complaints on this but I don’t think they really care. I don’t think there’s one class that you can actually do without getting some kind of storytelling. What they need to add to the bike is where you can push a button and tone out the instructors altogether but hear the music. And it would be great to see what the instructors are actually peddling. With so much chitchat and they have some classes going extreme speed and cadence I really can’t believe that half of them are doing the same.
