Imagine taking one of Manhattan’s most sought-after spin classes with a top instructor. Now imagine that you can do it from the comfort of your home.

It may sound far-fetched, but this exact scenario is a reality for hundreds of people from around the world who have purchased their own Peloton bikes, which allow them to log on and stream classes live from the flagship cycling studio in Chelsea.

CEO John Foley’s inspiration for Peloton came in 2012 as he and his wife became addicted to boutique spin classes. He knew there was a way to improve the spin experience for riders who didn’t always have time to get to a studio and were constantly shut out of their favorite classes because they were fully booked. Today there are at-home riders in almost every U.S. state; plus, hundreds of people visit the New York studio weekly to take rides featuring energetic, hard-bodied instructors and upbeat Top 40 playlists for a $30 price tag.

We recommend Cody Rigsby’s 45-minute Jennifer Lopez Ride, which offers a full body workout accompanied by an adrenaline-pumping J. Lo soundtrack, carefully crafted to inspire and drive your cardio to the max. If you make the trek to their 23rd Street location, everyone’s first ride is always free. Or purchase a bike ($2,000) and a monthly streaming membership ($39) so you never have to miss out on their daily array of rides.
