How about some Instructors for the over 60 age group and some music that is good! It would help if they could understand the issues and bodies we have at this age. Also more people would join if you could promote some sessions I bet!!!
I am over 60 and the music is there to be found. Low Impact rides are great, or you can always modify a regular ride. Sam Yao, Bradley Rose, and Dennis Morten all have great music choices. In your class filter select the types of music you like and you will be surprised at just how much there is to choose from.
No — Peloton says its for everyone, but they are not.
show me an older person with just old age issues who can ride with a cadence of 100-120 and resistance 45-plus climbing upwards throughout the ride Or perform a standing ride with cadence 80+. Our hips and legs just don’t do that. Not to mention seniors who have had torn calf or hamstring issues, knee and or hip replacement.
maybe some day peloton will add classes for the aging riders.
but in the meantime their response (which I’ve been hearing more during different rides) is: “you do you, I’ll do me” - a real professional instructor techniques I assume?
I have found several instructors that are great motivators, coaching throughout (not singing, dancing or reading leader board) and their classes are great. I choose between the Beginner or the Low Impact Class type with Sam Yo, Ben Alldis, or Christine D’Ercole.
I would love to see rides devoted to us older folks. Like you I gravitate towards the low impact rides. Sometimes I want a little more and I end up with something I just cannot stay in the zones for. When I cannot stay in the zones I feel deflated. Or I do stay in but then I hit a wall and the rest of the day is shot because I have exhausted myself.
I do a lot of Sam Yo, Ben Aldis, Bradley Rose, and Hannah Corbin.
