The dedication i'm seeing in the Peloton bike community is unlike any others and its easy to see why. Sticking to diets more religiously seem to follow as well.

With that being said what's the highest ride record you've achieved or seen others achieve so far?

So far I know one person that hit 100 and is currently gunning for 200!

I think you need to take these leaderboards with a grain of salt as many on the top don't seem accurate. I think there might be some discrepancies as a result of poor calibration.

What is a ride record? The number of training sessions that you've done? The idea of a leaderboard sounds neat, even though I would likely come in somewhere at the bottom lol.

Yes, I like to look at them as they're a real measure of dedication and potentially to the goals we all have set out for ourselves. Of course ride duration is another one to factor in.

The competitive aspect of their platform was an ingenious idea and its a great motivator/incentive to keep up with your training. Its also important to note that downtime is just as important, so you should be setting intervals for yourself. Three times a week with a day in between each session seems to be the norm.

I think it was just a natural move with how much online social platforms rule our lives.

The goal was to bring an interactive spin class experience to your living room, and they've succeeded in delivering that. There will be a bigger reliance on self motivation however.

I guess put that way it works especially with everyones busy lives which can make it challenging to get to a gym. Its common for people to sign up for gym membership and follow through on attending, at least this removes that barrier

Since they offer live classes, that could be a way to set a schedule of workouts for yourself that coincide with them. You may find yourself drawn towards a given trainer, as that can make a huge difference in the gym environment.

I haven't seen much of the Pelotons influence playing out on other social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook but I bet eventually influencers will brand themselves on those platforms along with the Pelotons.
The potential here for trainers to further establish themselves in the online world is quite high.

I did not realize that Peloton also has Yoga instructors, and that's still a huge craze. Will have to do some searching around to see if I can find a pre recorded session to get a sense of what they're like.
