What Are Peloton In-Person Classes?
Peloton in-person classes are a new feature offered by Peloton. Before the pandemic, Peloton was an in-person cycling and tread studio. However, during the pandemic, they changed and became an at home streaming workout while the studios had to close.
Now Peloton in-person classes are back!
Like pre-pandemic days, you can take live classes with instructors in the Peloton New York and Peloton London studios. These classes are filmed live, so are the same classes you take live at home or on demand.
This is a cool feature because if you go to a live class, you can then retake it when you get home!
Types of Classes
Peloton offers a variety of classes in person. Almost every class that you see offered on the bike and tread is offered live in person.
These classes include:
Cycling (both regular and Power Zone)
Benefits of Peloton In-Person Classes
There are quite a few benefits to attending an in-person class instead of working out at home. Here are a few of them:
Motivation and Energy
One of the biggest benefits of attending in-person classes is the motivation and energy that comes from being in a group setting.
Working out with others can help push you to work harder and stay motivated throughout the class.
The energy in the room can be contagious, and it can be easier to push yourself to your limits when you are surrounded by others who are doing the same.
Another benefit of attending in-person classes is the sense of community that comes from working out with others.
Peloton in-person classes offer a great opportunity to meet other members and build relationships with like-minded individuals. You might even meet some people in your class who are part of the same groups or use the same leaderboard hashtags!
In addition to the benefits of motivation and community building, attending Peloton in-person classes can also provide access to top-notch instructors and equipment.
Overall, attending in-person classes can be a great way to enhance your Peloton experience and take your workouts to the next level.

Location and Studio Details

Embracing the spirit of collective energy at Peloton's live classes is a unique experience that marries fun, fitness, and the thrill of live broadcasting. As a Peloton enthusiast, I know firsthand how these classes can turn your workout routine into an exciting adventure.
However, it's important to follow a few ground rules to ensure the most enjoyable time for everyone involved. Here are my tips for seamlessly navigating the rules at Peloton's studio:
Master Your Schedule
Peloton operates on a strict timetable to ensure their live broadcast runs smoothly. You'll need to check-in 45 minutes before class starts, and the studio doors open 30 minutes prior.
If you aren't checked in when the doors open, your spot could be given away. Once the doors close 15 minutes before the class, no latecomers are permitted.
My advice? Plan ahead and arrive early - it'll make your experience stress-free, and you might even have time for a quick chat with fellow Peloton enthusiasts.
Dress for Success
When it comes to attire, Peloton encourages comfort, functionality, and a touch of personal style. Remember, your outfit should be family-friendly and non-distracting. Sports bras are okay, but tops should be kept on throughout the class.
One important tip: Glitter is not allowed.
If you're unsure about your workout outfit, don't hesitate to reach out to the Peloton studio team - they're always ready to assist!
Respect the Quiet Zone
During the live class, it's vital to minimize distractions. That means your mobile phone should be silent or switched off as soon as studio checks commence.
As tempting as it might be to capture this unique experience, no photos, videos, or flash photography are allowed during the workouts.
To fully embrace the Peloton class spirit, I recommend saving the conversations for after the workout and focusing on the energy in the room. You'll get time afterward to take pictures!
Ready for Your Close-up?
Remember, Peloton live classes are a live production - you might be on camera during the broadcast! Follow the instructor's directions closely, not only to optimize your workout but to ensure the smooth running of the production.
And just a heads up: due to the nature of live broadcasting, class timings may change at short notice, or your spot may be moved.
A flexible attitude will help you navigate any unexpected changes!
For the safety and convenience of all members, refrain from moving any of the studio equipment, including yoga mats. And remember, valuables are better left in the studio lockers provided.
The Golden Rule
Lastly, and most importantly, respect is paramount at Peloton. The staff, instructors, and fellow members are all part of your workout journey. A positive attitude and respect for others contribute to the community spirit that makes Peloton special.
Peloton live classes are more than just a workout - they're a shared fitness journey. By following these rules and tips, you'll be all set to make the most of your Peloton experience.
What to Bring to a Live Class
One of the best things about attending a Peloton live class?
They've got you covered with most of the essentials. However, knowing what to pack for your specific class can help streamline your experience. Here's my take on what to bring for each class type:
Cycling Class Essentials
When you're attending a cycling class, you can travel light! Peloton provides complimentary rental shoes which are perfect for newbies and seasoned riders alike. However, if you have a personal preference for your own shoes, go ahead and bring them.
Just ensure they're compatible with LOOK Delta clips to fit the Peloton bikes (the shoes that come witht the bikes).
A water bottle to stay hydrated is always a good idea too.
Tread Class Checklist
For those of you hitting the tread class, prepare to work up a sweat! Your running shoes are your best friends here - make sure you choose a comfortable pair that offers good support. If you're taking a tread bootcamp class, you don't need to worry about weights.
Peloton will place recommended weights on your mat, but feel free to swap these out during the pre-production checks if you have a specific preference.
Yoga Class Must-Haves
Peloton makes your yoga journey as smooth as possible. You don't need to worry about lugging mats, blankets, blocks, bolsters, or straps to the studio - they provide all these props at no extra cost. My advice? Just bring yourself in comfortable yoga attire, and perhaps a water bottle to stay refreshed throughout your practice.
Remember, while the Peloton studio is equipped to offer everything you need for your workout, personal essentials such as a water bottle, towel, and perhaps a small snack for post-workout energy are always worth packing.
A little preparation will go a long way in ensuring your Peloton live class experience is nothing short of exhilarating!
What Not to Bring to a Peloton Live Class
While I've covered the essentials to pack for your Peloton live class, it's equally important to know what to leave behind.
The Peloton studio strives to maintain a smooth, hassle-free environment for everyone, and with this in mind, there are some items best left at your hotel or home.
Luggage and Suitcases
Even though the studio offers convenient lockers, they simply can't accommodate everything. These lockers are ideal for typical workout bags and weekender style bags but aren't designed to handle larger items like luggage or suitcases.
To keep the locker area accessible and tidy for everyone, it's best to leave bulky items at your hotel or safe at home.
Items Requiring Staff Supervision
Also, remember that the Peloton staff at the desk is unable to hold onto any items for you. This policy helps ensure that staff can focus on providing all attendees with an excellent studio experience rather than managing personal belongings.
In short, when packing for your Peloton live class, keep it simple and light. Stick to the essentials required for your specific class and any small personal items you might need.
Your preparation will make your Peloton experience even more enjoyable, and ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience for everyone involved.
What to Expect in a Peloton In-Person Class
Book your class? Here's what to expect in class!
Peloton in-person classes follow the same structure as their online classes. The class will start with a warm-up, followed by the main workout, and end with a cool-down.
The classes range from 15 - 60 minute classes.
The class is led by a Peloton instructor who will guide you through the workout. The instructor will provide cues and motivation throughout the class to help you stay on track and push yourself to your limits.
Peloton instructors are known for their high energy and motivational cues. In an in-person class, you can expect the same level of interaction with the instructor as you would in an online class. The instructor will be able to see you and provide feedback on your form and technique.
Instructors may also provide modifications for certain exercises to accommodate different fitness levels or injuries. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask the instructor before or after class.
After the class, you will have the opportunity to cool down and stretch. Peloton in-person classes typically have a designated area for stretching and foam rolling.
You will also have the opportunity to connect with other Peloton members and instructors after the class and take pictures! Peloton also has a shop with branded gear if you plan to do a little shopping.
Peloton in-person classes often have special events and themes. These events can include holiday-themed classes, charity rides, and more.
If you're interested in attending a special event, be sure to check the Peloton schedule for upcoming events. Special events can be a great way to mix up your workout routine and try something new.
Peloton Class Travel Tips
Planning a trip to the iconic Peloton Studio in New York City can be exciting, especially if you're coming from out of town.
As a travel enthusiast, I've gathered a few key tips to help you make the most of your Peloton adventure while minimizing stress and maximizing enjoyment.
Book Your Class First
First and foremost, secure your spot in your preferred class. The Peloton in-person classes can fill up quickly, and you wouldn't want to plan your entire trip only to find out that the class you wanted to take is full.
Booking your class is the first step to anchoring your trip plans.
It's as easy as visiting studio.onepeloton.com and choosing the class that best fits your schedule and fitness goals.
Secure Your Accommodation and Travel
Once you have your class confirmed, it's time to book your travel and accommodation. When it comes to choosing a hotel, look for one that is conveniently located near the Peloton studio at 370 10th Avenue.
Not only will this make your commute to class easier, but it will also give you a chance to explore the vibrant neighborhood of Hudson Yards.
When booking flights, trains, or other long-distance travel, make sure you have plenty of buffer time around your class schedule. The last thing you want is to be stressing about catching a flight right after an invigorating workout!
Schedule for Comfort
I strongly recommend planning to arrive at least a day before your class and departing at least a day after. This approach gives you plenty of time to acclimate, relax, and soak up the NYC atmosphere and grab a Levain cookie.
You wouldn't want to rush to the studio after a long flight or drive.
Equally, after your class, you'll appreciate the opportunity to rest, rejuvenate, and relish your Peloton experience without the pressure of immediate travel.
In conclusion, planning your trip to Peloton isn't just about the workout itself—it's about the overall journey.
Take the time to plan well, travel comfortably, and immerse yourself in the Peloton experience. Your mind, body, and spirit will thank you!
