Joy rides and testimonials

Members of Peloton’s peloton include some of the biggest names in sports: soccer star and Futbol Miami co-owner David Beckham; NASCAR legend and analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr.; MMA star Conor McGregor; PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan; CAA Sports head Howard Nuchow; Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps; Los Angeles Kings president Luc Robitaille; and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Here’s what some sports leaders have to say about their Peloton bikes.

Sandy Alomar

Six-time MLB All-Star, Cleveland Indians first base coach

“I’m an outdoor cyclist and the Peloton is the closest you can get to recreating that feeling of your road bike inside. The Indians have Peloton bikes in the weight room and most of the hotels we stay in on the road have them too. My schedule varies, so it’s great to be able to pick an interval ride or a hip-hop ride and just go.”

 

Marc de Grandpre

General manager, New York Red Bulls

“I just got the Peloton bike in January but I have been using Peloton Digital for a few months. I alternate each day between rides and runs. I love to compete and win, so I love to see the leaderboard and try to make my way to the top. I love being able to track my workouts. The classes are phenomenal, the coaches are great and I love the music. You always find a way to get a really good workout. You never finish and feel like you didn’t put in a good effort.”

 

Dave Roberts

Former MLB player, Los Angeles Dodgers manager

“My Peloton bike is in my house and I’ll have it shipped to spring training, then to Los Angeles for the season. My schedule is so busy, but I can just hop on the bike, pick my music — I like hip hop — and do 30 or 45 minutes and compete and get my heart rate up and get a great sweat whenever I can. It has been fantastic.”

 

Luc Robitaille

NHL hall of famer, Los Angeles Kings president

“I’ve had the Peloton bike since it first came out and I’m probably on it six times a week. I’m a huge fan of the precision of the bike. I love when they say, ‘Bring the resistance to 55 percent and your cadence to 90,’ and it’s digital, it’s right there, so you can really follow the numbers. It’s not like being in a class where you’re working like a son-of-a-gun and the person next to you is just going super fast with no resistance.”
