With weeks on end at home and gyms across the country closed until at least July, we’ve all been getting into at-home workouts.
And with so much technology at our beck and call to help us out, it’s never been easier for us to do.
At-home workout apps, YouTube tutorials and even live video sessions have been keeping us all fit while we’ve been stuck in the house in lockdown.
It’s even been a great time for those who have previously been relatively sedentary to try out some slow fitness sessions, as a lot of us have had a bit of extra time on our hands.
So we’re loving this five-star at-home fitness app that we can currently try out for absolutely free.
Peloton app: Everything you need to know
For anyone who has heard of Peloton, you will probably know only of its spinning classes and virtual cycling workouts.
The fitness regime took the world by storm when it launched and became a popular option over the last few years.
But the Peloton app offers so much more than just cyling, and you don't even need to buy any equipment to take advantage of it.
The Peloton fitness app comes complete with thousands of workout videos covering all different categories, including strength, cardio, running and walking, cycling, bootcamp, yoga and meditation and even a section for outdoor workouts.
Each category has numerous options to choose from, with workout lengths ranging from five minutes to half an hour and loads of really enthusiastic and encouraging fitness instructors.
And most of the workouts are set to fun and diverse playlists, with the music genre displayed on the info so that users can decide whether it’s for them or not before the workout begins.
Peloton classes reviews
‘Love my peloton digital every day!’ raved one user. ‘From meditation and yoga, to a walk/run on the gym tread and cycling on my spin bike, this app has everything I need to get a complete workout.
‘Peloton covers all aspects of fitness of the body and mind, in a fun, motivating and communal way. I look forward to using it daily, and ever since I've gotten it, I have enjoyed exercise!’.
‘Perfect for me!’ added another. ‘I’ve only just started using this app, I purchased the subscription a few days ago, and I LOVE it!
‘I travel all the time and I’m constantly staying in hotels, I really wanted something that would make it easier/more exciting to workout in the hotel gym. This does just that!
‘I am motivated to workout everyday. I actually don’t own any equipment, so when I’m not traveling I use the body weight workouts and the audio running to keep up with my routine’.
Peloton membership and price
Available on Apple, Android, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Android, the app is currently offering a 30-day Peloton free trial so that users can try it out before committing.
And if you love it as much as we do, it will cost only £12.99 per month afterwards if you want to stick to it.
This has just made our lockdown go by that little bit quicker!
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home—so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
