The bike arrived yesterday and I took my first class” this morning. The class was a pre-recorded, 30-minute Advanced Beginner” workout. It reinforced that I am in terrible physical condition, but it was also kind of fun.

The instructor was engaging and supportive, which is good because the group fitness aspect is the Peloton’s biggest selling point.
