What Should I Use Under My Bike For Peloton Online Classes?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: March, 2021 - Modified: October, 2023

One of the hottest workout trends sweeping the fitness world is virtual cycling classes. Spin and cardio cycling are some of the best calorie-blasting workouts there are, with group fitness classes for beginners and pros.

Biking in an indoor setting for hours will burn calories and fat and build muscle, and it will supply oxygen to the body. With on-demand classes available online, there is no need to hit the gym or worry about finding specific times during the day to schedule time for a live class. Instead, just throw in a video or log in using an app, strap on some spin shoes, grab a water bottle, and hop on the bike. Boost your mood and drop weight in no time with this type of exhilarating fitness class.
