What Is a Peloton?

When you hear the word “Peloton,” what comes to mind? Chances are it’s the iconic Peloton bike, which you can use from the comfort of your own home to get your workout in for the day.

This piece of equipment is known for its large screen and speakers. One reason why Peletons are so popular is that, despite the fact you are working out alone in your own home, you are still connected to other Peloton users. If you have the Peloton All-Access Membership, you will be privy to thousands of classes that are available. 

These classes are extremely varied, so there is something for everyone—no matter what type of bike workout you enjoy and no matter how far along you are in your own personal fitness journey.

That’s not all that the Peloton membership will offer you, however. You will also have access to a music library and have the ability to ride your Peloton virtually with your friends. You can even support and cheer your friends on with the ability to “high-five” other users. 

Did you know that there are also several different types of Peloton bikes? It is true! Depending on the budget and needs that you have, you can find a bike that will work better for you so you can reach your personal fitness goal. 

How Can a Peloton Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals? 

A Peloton is an excellent option for those who are looking to meet their fitness goals this new year. For one, there are some benefits to choosing to cycle indoors compared to heading outside.

One of these benefits is that if you cycle indoors, you are also able to mix in high-intensity interval (or HIIT) training. This is because when you have an indoor bike instead of going outdoors, you are able to control the bike’s resistance. This means that you can customize your workout to achieve what you are looking to do. 

Additionally, Peloton offers you the opportunity to interact with other people when you are on your bike. This can be extremely beneficial as it can act as an additional incentive to keep you engaged in your workout routine. You can even bike with your friends and have some friendly competition. 

If you are looking to shed a few pounds this new year, biking also might be the way to go. Did you know that cycling can help you lose fat? Not only that, but you can build muscle as well. If you are looking to reach this goal, getting on your Peloton and going for a ride might be exactly what you are looking for. 

Note that this is not the only benefit of riding your Peloton. It is important to note that your Peloton will also have other health benefits. This includes potentially lowering your blood pressure.

In addition, you might be able to lower your low-density lipoproteins, often known as LDL, cholesterol levels. These could ultimately contribute to either a stroke or heart attack, so getting this under control is an excellent idea. 

What Accessories Do I Need For My Peloton?

Now that you have decided to make a commitment to using your Peloton to boost your wellbeing this year, it’s time to properly equip yourself with everything that you will need to achieve success with your Peloton. 

Of course, this list will vary person by person, so take some time to figure out what you uniquely need for success with your workout. However, this is a great place to start. 

Continue reading to learn more about the accessories you should have for your Peloton and why you need them. 

#1: A Water Bottle

The first thing that you need when you are riding your Peloton is a water bottle. This is an absolute essential for several reasons. Let’s dive into why—and let’s discuss why having the right water bottle can help you reach your fitness goals this year. 

In addition to quenching the thirst that you will feel when you get your workout on, there are several other important reasons why you should ensure you are drinking enough water.

For one, water intake can actually help your body maintain its proper functioning and help you feel healthy. Essentially all of your body’s major systems require water to survive, which is why it is so vital.  When you are working out specifically, water intake is even more critical.

This is because water intake has several critical functions. Water lubricates your joints, regulates your body’s temperature, protects your body’s tissues and organs, and carries nutrients and oxygen to the body’s cells. Plus, it moistens the tissues in your mouth, nose, and eyes while reducing the burden on your kidneys and liver.

Water also helps your body dissolve the minerals and nutrients that you consume and then makes those accessible. It’s clear that you can’t underestimate the power of water. 

#2: A Coaster/Device Holder

The next thing that you need for your Peloton workout is a coaster and device holder—and ideally, a two-in-one to save space. CordaRoy’s has the perfect item for you.

Our PUK Coaster/Device Holder is a great place to put your water bottle on or your phone while you are doing your workout on your Peloton. This versatile, easy-to-use item is a fan favorite for a reason. It also comes in several different colors, so you can find the one that works the best for you. 

When you order your PUK, three come in a box, which means you can have one (or two) for your Peloton, and then use the extra around your house. It’s just one way that we’re all about making your life easier and more enjoyable. If you have a friend that also rides the Peleton, this is an excellent gift for them—so stock up now and gift later. 

This product will work with basically any phone or tablet, so whether you have an iPhone or an Android, your device will fit. In addition, the PUK has three different sizing slots so that you will be able to get the perfect fit.

The best part? This product offers room for your phone to charge, so when you’re done with your workout, you can have a fully-charged device. It will also work in either landscape or portrait modes, so whichever you prefer will work. 

#3: Proper Workout Wear

Lastly, it is impossible to work out without correct workout apparel. You should have supportive sneakers and clothing that is comfortable and allows you to move. Peloton does offer some shoes that are specific to your device, so you could decide whether or not you want to invest in those. 

Either way, be sure that you are wearing comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothing. Between a water bottle, the proper clothes, and your device holder/coaster, you are all set to make your Peloton workout a success. 

What Do You Need For Post Peloton Workout?

Once you have completed your  Peloton workout, give yourself a good pat on the bat! Taking the first steps towards reaching your fitness goals is not easy, and you should be proud of yourself for doing so. 

After you are done with your Peloton workout, you should give yourself an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. Whether that be laying in a hammock, or enjoying a comfortable convertible chair, or even cozying up in your favorite blanket, the opportunities are endless.
