Yesterday I took my 250th ride on the Peloton bike along with 2,200 other people, which included a shout out from my favorite instructor Alex Toussaint. After a relatively sedentary 2018, we bought the bike last January and since then I have a 58 week streak which means I've done at least one workout on the bike or the Peloton app every week since we got it. Overall in that time, I've done 327 workouts which also including things other than the bike like running, strength training and meditation. This doesn't include workouts outside of Peloton like outdoor rides.

Peloton has helped me get back to a healthy level of fitness and I'm now addicted to it!

Congratulations! Any tips on getting a shout out?
Thanks! Regarding the shout out, some suggestions:
  • It's possible to get shout outs on live rides when you ride on your birthday or it is a milestone ride which means increments of 50 - note that all rides count so 5 minute warm ups, 10 minute cool downs contribute to your total. Certain milestones tend to get more attention like increments of 100, 500, 1000, etc.
  • Make sure your leaderboard name is easy to pronounce, I've heard them say before that they skip over names that are super long or they can't pronounce.
  • Put in your location a note that says your milestone e.g. "#250 today!"
  • Pick a longer ride so they have a chance to get to you - like 45 minutes or an hour
  • The fewer people on the ride, the better the chance you will get a shout out. On popular rides the instructors will never be able to get to all of them.
  • Get on the ride a little early - like 5 minutes ahead. The instructors seem to look through the milestones on the screen during that time so they may notice you there and be more likely to shout you out during the ride.
  • I believe I've gotten shout outs on 99, 100 and 250 so it's a bit hit or miss. If you didn't get a shout out on a milestone ride and you really want one I think it's totally acceptable to delete a short ride and try again on the next live ride. Your paying for this service and it's for fun so do what you want!
  • Lastly, if you have a milestone and you're in the studio live, you're pretty much guaranteed to get a shout out.
