In today’s post I’m sharing some of my favorite instructors on the Peloton app.
I haven’t been to the gym since February or March 2020. It’s hard to believe that it’s been so long already. As much as I’m missing it, I don’t feel comfortable going back yet. Cases are rising here in Calgary and additional restrictions were put in place on Friday due to the increase in Covid hospital admissions. I decided to sign up for the Peloton app (check out my review of it here) because at home workouts are a lot easier for me if I have someone else telling me exactly what to do. It’s funny because if I’m working out at the gym I don’t have a problem with motivation. But at home it feels like there’s way more distractions. In this post I’ll be sharing my favorite instructors.
One of the very first classes on the app was with Andy Speer. Since that class I’ve been hooked on his workouts. I’ve done more of his workouts than anyone else on the Peloton app. He does all kinds of classes – from strength to treadmill to cycling.
Kristin McGee is my favorite yoga teacher on Peloton. I’ve been a fan of hers for 20ish years. The fact that she had classes on the app was a big reason that I decided to take the plunge and sign up. She’s well known in the yoga community. I really enjoy her classes and she has a great presence when she’s teaching.
Chase Tucker is a down to earth instructor, which draws me to his classes. He’s really good at being encouraging without being annoying. I think just about everyone has taken a fitness class with someone who’s just over the top peppy and it just annoys you. That’s definitely not the case with Chase.
As for treadmill workouts, I really like Matty Maggiacomo’s workouts. I don’t have a Peloton treadmill, but I do have a treadmill. With the app I’m able to do the treadmill workouts just as good.
In terms of the mediations that Peloton offers on their app, my favorite instructors are Ross Rayburn and Chelsea Jackson Roberts. They both have soothing voices, which makes them easy to listen to. The meditations vary in length from just a few minutes to longer ones. I think they’re a great introduction to meditation if you’re new to it.
