Those PELOTON commercials are the absolute worst.
They are the douchiest, most annoying, most infuriating commercials on television.
Watching a Peloton commercial actually makes me angry.
And why do they call their clients, "Peloton?????" Don't they have names???
If I hear one more douche turd say "You crushed it!", someone is going to get knocked out.

Peloton is interesting from the standpoint of, is it a fad or is it a lasting change to how we stay in shape. I work for one of the biggest companies in tech, and peloton has captured the hearts and minds of nearly all of my health conscious colleagues. Almost everyone I know either has one or is waiting for one.

Peloton was made for trend sucking straight breeder SHEEPLE.

If I didn’t have a Peloton, I’d be skeptical too. But it really is great. I have no interest in returning to the gym.

I'd have to clear some major space in my already cramped 1 bedroom apartment.
But I have no desire to return to my gym either.

What the fuck is peloton?

It's a company of exercise equipment, made for DOUCHE BAGS.
They actually came under fire a few years ago for this absolutely ridiculous commercial.
People were mercilessly making fun of them for this idiocy.

Meh. I’d never buy one but they have cute guys in the commercials, and they refreshed my memory of that Beyoncé song I loved 10 years ago.
“Ohhhh... killing me softly-eeee”

It’s the only exercise equipment that I’ve stayed with every day for over a year. It’s part of my routine. I don’t even think of it as exercising.
I’m not a fanatic about it, but it keeps me in shape.

"Peloton" is French for "platoon." In bike-racing, it's the group of riders who pace themselves by staying close together in one group. "Ok, Peloton!" is like "Ok, troops!"

Thank you for that explanation, R9!
Now it makes sense why the trainers/leaders keep shouting, "Okay, Peloton!"
I still hate it, but at least now it makes sense to me.

“... someone is going to get knocked out.”
Big talk, fattie. Like to see you try it. You can’t take a shit without getting winded. You’ll end up with your puny cocklet in the dirt.

Twitter user Clue Heywood lampooned their ads a couple years ago. They're hilarious.
"Sometimes I’ll move the Peloton bike into our gallery so I can spend time with my half gay husband while he reads Architectural Digest wearing combat boots"
"My Peloton is in the living room because it’s my favorite work of art aside from the turquoise marble peacock I keep in the fireplace."
"I put the Peloton bike in the kitchen of our loft so I can get a workout and also cook the vegan three-bean tortilla soup recipe I downloaded from Goop"
"In the mornings, after my housekeeper meticulously makes my bed, I like to ride my Peloton bike in the window of my high rise and literally look down my nose at people."

Pardon my ignorance, but how is this any different than any other exercise bike?

Biden uses a Peloton but may not bring it into the WH.
I have noticed he seems leaner and more fit compared to the Obama years so must be the Peloton bike.

Why not buy a bike and see the real countryside?

R16, in addition to the high cost of the bike itself, apparently they push a monthly subscription service to watch others work out as motivation.

Sounds like a covert dating service.
You just know all of these douchebags and sluts are hooking up using this Peloton "subscription service."
Dating service is more like it. Or escort service.

That's similar to what my health teacher said in high school back in the early 90's, that gyms were just for people looking to hook up.

R21 You're right.
It's all preening and posturing. Not hard physical work.

It's admittedly a bit culty and tyrannically wholesome, but Peleton has kept me sane over the past year. I don't have the bike nor a treadmill, but I pay the monthly digital subscription which I mostly use mostly for live yoga classes using an Apple TV or for short HIIT workouts.
I can't see myself wanting to get back into a yoga studio anytime soon, and trying to maintain a yoga habit practice using YouTube videos or other recorded material was hopeless as I found it almost impossible to stay focused and engaged for an entire session. At least with a live class there's a sense of being present, and of needing to stay until the end.
And the monthly fee is less than I'd sometimes pay for a single yoga class.

Same here R24. I’ve been using the app for strength classes and outdoor runs. It keeps me on track with workouts. I would love to try out the treadmill at their studio when they reopen.

Wow R24 and R25, sounds like you're both CRUSHING IT!
Keep up the good work, PELOTON!

I always have to laugh at the thought of how many of these stupid machines become something that you end up hanging your clothes on, or just collecting dust.
You know people get tired of this shit after a few months or even weeks.

R24, good point. Pre COVID their ads we're over the top elitist at the time, and very tone deaf culturally as to who they were trying to appeal to.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||January 18, 2021 9:34 PM
So how is it so different than any other exercise bike while watching training videos? Is it really worth 3K or whatever it costs?

I can’t get motivated to exercise inside my home. I go to a gym because I like it.
