5 Reasons You Need to Use Peloton as a College Student

Welcome to the family at Peloton! Peloton helps you grow both physically and mentally. Showing up to workout is the hardest part, but once you’re there, you have made the first step in your journey. Here are 5 reasons why you need to use Peloton as a college student. As cycling, meditation and strength instructor Cody Rigsby says, “Grab a towel, grab a water and get your life together boo!"

  1. 1. Strength Classes

    Lifting weights is a struggle within itself. However, starting lightly and “repping it out,” as Peloton instructor Robin Arzón suggests, will lead to an immensely positive change. Using the Peloton mobile application while at college will enable you to grow muscular strength. Here are some instructors you should consider: Andy Speer, Emma Lovewell and Jess Sims. As the user, you can choose the effort (beginner, intermediate, advanced), the time frame (5,10,15,20,30, etc.) and your instructor's course (core, full-body, upper body, lower body, bodyweight, etc.). Come on team! Go give it a shot. 

  2. 2. Cycling & Running

    Cardiovascular training is equally as valuable as strength training. While some fitness gurus believe it is the worst part of their workout, we can change that story and realize it is just as powerful as those weights. Peloton offers Cycling and Running classes indoors and outdoors. You do not need the fancy equipment, simply a Peloton membership. You can do these classes on any equipment, which is the beauty of this unique fitness company. Want a suggestion of a class to take? Read below!

    Here are some of my favorites:

    Cody Rigsby’s 15-minute Groove Ride

    Robin Arzón’s 30-minute “The Greatest Showman” musical ride

    Ally Love’s 10-minute Hills Ride

    Emma Lovewell’s 30-minute “Two for One Groove Ride”

  3. 3. Yoga

    It's really all in your core. The human core is the heart center of our strength. Think about this: when you walk from place to place, what is holding you up? Your core. When you’re holding groceries, what is holding you up? Your core. Yoga is a great way to focus on core strength through dynamic movements, which can strengthen, rehabilitate, grow and stretch your muscles. Consider checking out Kristen McGee’s body flow yoga!

  4. 4. Meditation

    Bring your hands to the heart center and let us seal in our power as human beings. We tend to be flustered individuals, always studying, socializing and running around from class to class. By bringing our attention to our breath through prone twists, child's pose and more, we can draw our attention to taking a step back. Living in the present moment is a challenge, yet with a 10, 20 or 30-minute meditation, restorative yoga or full-focused breath meditation, we can grow by exhaling our inner worries.

  5. 5. The Wonderful Instructors
