Seems there's an overwhelming desire for a mute button, in order to shut out instructors more so the ones that can't stop with their irrelevant babble. I think it's time for Peloton to actually do something about it. Some people enjoy it so be it , they don't have to use THE BUTTON and they can continue enjoying it as they please . But please give the rest of us who actually don't enjoy it so much or not at all, the choice to mute the instructors when we want to.
Like most members there are definitely some instructors I enjoy more than others and that don't talk too much or when they actually talk its bearable and relevant to the class. So I stick with them , but there are time when I wouldn't mind having the option to mute them as well and just listent to the music.
What's also unfortunate is as a paying member ,there are classes that I don't do because I don't want to have to listen to the instructors. So in some way I can't access all the classes. So why limit my availability to certain classes?
That's where a mute function would change all that. I've had my bike since December of last year and by far my single biggest pet peeve is instructors that talk to much and prevent me from listening to the music.
I don't mind being given instructions that are relevant to the class, please cue me when necessary. But I don't need to hear that "I'm beautiful inside" , that "I can " or that" I'm star just for showing up". The worse is the history we're sometimes given regarding a song , If I really want to know I'll Google it after the class. I don't really mind the shout outs, the instructors I follow aren't too bad , sometimes they'll shout a little before the class begins or when it ends.
Music, for me and I'm sure for other members is the most important aspect during a spin class, so why ruin it with all the babbling?
My hope is that someone from Peloton actually reads these comments rand specifically regarding this topic and they realize how much wer'e really annoyed by all the talking. SO PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT PELOTON!!!
