If you've taken a Peloton class before you've noticed that most instructors will give a shoutout to members during class. Have you ever wondered how to get a shout-out of your own? In this blog post, we'll cover everything you need to know about shout-outs and how to get one yourself!
What is a Peloton Shout Out?
A Peloton shout-out is when an instructor calls your leaderboard name during a live Peloton class. This can be super motivating and fun!
How to Get a Peloton Shout Out

Birthday Ride - Peloton instructors can see when it's your birthday and will often do shout-outs for those celebrating
Funny (and mostly appropriate) Leaderboard Name - If you have a fun leaderboard name you're more likely to get a shout-out than a bland name. Be careful though - if your leaderboard name has any inappropriate words in it you might not get a shout-out.

Attend Class Early - Arrive to class 2-5 minutes early and instructors will usually do a pre-show and have some shout-outs during that time.
Suggest Songs for Rides - In groups like Power Zone Pack there will be posts where you can suggest songs for an upcoming ride playlist and during the ride, you'll get a shout-out. I suggested one for a Matt Wilpers ride once and I ended up getting a shout-out from it!
