Just so we're all on the same page as more people join the community and to spinning with the Peloton I though that using a thread to share essential reads would help. Introductory reading, long-term reviews and even those with constructive criticism are all welcome here with the overall goal aimed at helping everyone get the most from their spinning experience!

Here's what I found useful so far:

I think what many people are trying to determine with this bike is if its actually the future of exercise or if its just another fitness fad that will fall by the wayside. With the 14 livestream classes a day and nearly 5,000 on demand the bike is still getting incredible support.

Being a heavy user of social media since platforms like MySpace that lead to us now having instagram, facebook, twitter, etc. It makes sense to have one dedicated to exercising. No other social platform offers that experience.

YouTube is actually a great source for free spin cycle classes. There are even a good number of them that have been taken directly from the SWEAT OnDemand service.

The benefit to the live interactive classes is the fact that the lead trainer can actually make adjustments to your machine to increase/decrease resistance in real time. When you begin to look at what it would cost to get that some sort of engagement in person, there's a lot of value in the cost of a subscription.

Very true and I think it depends on what someone needs as their knowledge grows or the lack of it shows. Its similar to other workouts you do, at some point you realize certain things that trainers look for and learn common flaws experienced.

I did not know that they could make changes to the bike like that, really neat! I've looked into personal trainers in the past and have always been turned off by the sheer cost of getting one. Machines like this look like a good alternative.
