Thinking of using VMware’s well-being allowance to buy a Peloton bike. Any Peloton bike owners here? Do you still use it after years?

I’m about to hop on my peloton right now for an early Saturday morning ride - that’s how much I love it :) been a rider since 2018. Absolutely love it.


Yes! No more gym but everything on peloton. My discount code is PJK2NG if you like.


I think the bike is great (after almost a year) esp since I haven’t felt comfortable going to a gym or classes for a while. The instructors are really a positive highlight and helps with the negativity and confidence issues I’ve had during the pandemic. Honestly, it is pricey and I think there is a lot more value if you share with someone else in your household, if any. DM me if you want a referral code for $100 off shoes or other accessories, or better yet, DM a friend you know with Peloton and you both get $100 off accessories.


I’ve had mine for 3 years and still use it 4-5 times a week. Prior to owning one, I had never done any sort of spin classes.


Yes, it was originally bought for my partner. Now they don't ever use it and I'm using it to supplement days I don't run outside. It also has a lot of classes for free on the app and we play it from our tv. Meditation, etc. If you have a friend that has one give it a shot.

Were you both regular cyclist or spinning practitioners or the bike got you into it?

I hate spin and never bicycle. I know how to. I still like it.

Partner bought it, she uses it almost daily. I use it 1-2 times a week (I generally prefer heavier lifting). But it’s great. Good change of pace, and as others mentioned there’s quite the variety of class options. I definitely recommend!

We love it. Partner bought it for biking but I use big screen and instructors for strength programs, stretching etc. it’s like have programs available on a single click

I still use mine weekly - it’s especially convenient in the winter when it’s rainy or too hot in the summer to run

I just used my allowance for the Peloton Tread! I have been a bike owner for 2+ years!

Personally, I would get a real bike and go outside

Unfortunately it seems I can only do referrals from UK users. Anyone in the UK who could do with a £100 of Peloton accessories?

Hey folks. 3 YOE, working in tech at a great company, and making 135K TC in Austin.

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?
