Revive Your Workout Routine with These Expert Peloton Motivation Tips

You might be thinking about ways to get your Peloton bicycle motivation back if you have had your indoor bike for a while. Trust me. I understand.

Since 2016, I have owned my bike. I was like many others who became obsessed with the bike as soon as it arrived. Like most shiny and new things, the shine began to fade.

This is not the time when I first started to use my Peloton for clothes storage. No. No. I have been riding my bike almost five years. The excitement of riding my bike and trying out new classes was just not there.

How you can lose your Peloton bike motivation

There are two reasons why you may not be motivated to ride your Peloton bike. You may have gotten out too quickly. For example, your backside may hurt and you give up.

You find it difficult to manage your time, even when you are exercising. This is something I understand.

It can be difficult to find time for exercise when life is so busy. This is even more difficult if you don’t have a plan.

Three, it can be overwhelming to look at the Peloton schedule. There are many classes available to choose from.

You may experience decision fatigue or analysis paralysis, whether you are doing Power Zone or Pilates. You may decide to stop trying to figure out which class you should take and just quit exercising altogether.

How to get Peloton bike motivation back

It was a big investment to buy a Peloton. You should love it again. You also know that exercise is good to you. How can you get your Peloton bike enthusiasm back?

These are just a few suggestions that I have made to ensure you don’t get bored of your Peloton. I hope that you will feel inspired to use the bike again or the app on a regular basis.

Notice: Some of the suggestions I will make in this article are Facebook groups that you might be interested to join. These groups are linked at the end of this post.

For a push, start a Peloton bicycle program

To give you motivation, there are many Peloton challenges that can be found on the Pelotonapp and on the bike. You can also find programs. These programs are being added by Peloton to make it easier for you to use the bike.

You can find two programs for the Peloton bike, one each with the Power Zone training. These are Build Your Power Zones, and Discover Your Power Zones.

Peloton also offers other programs that can push you, including but not limited to:

  • For beginners
  • Andy Speer: Total Strength
  • Yoga for Beginners
  • The Power of Sleep
  • Emma will crush your core

This article describes the Peloton programs.

For motivation, join the Peloton Facebook Group

As I said, if you sign up for a Power Zone Challenge on the Peloton bicycle, you will be assigned a Facebook Group for your team. These groups are only temporary for the duration of the challenge. However, if you stay with the same team, you will be able to keep in touch with them time and time again.

Peloton Facebook groups can also be found by joining those associated with your favorite instructors. This is a great way to find support and encouragement through shared interests in riding and working out with your favorite instructors.

Instructor-inspiring Facebook Groups

Two instructor affinity Facebook groups are one example. They are for Christine D’Ercole and Denis Morton.

Many groups have rides or classes that members take on a regular basis. Menaces helped me to start yoga regularly with Denis Morton. One member of the group is very religious about posting when Denis teaches live yoga flow classes. I was inspired to make time every Sunday at 11 a.m. for yoga.

CDE Project group and Christine also offer Saturday 60 rides. The organizers tried to finish Christine’s 60-minute rides this year before the next Peloton purge. Each Saturday, I am confident that I will find a group of people who are willing to take a 60-minute class.

Groups on Facebook for Fitness and Peloton bikes

I mentioned in my recent blog post on Peloton strength classes the new Peloton Facebook group that I had joined. It’s called Hardcore on the Floor.

The organizers publish a calendar with a variety of strength exercises each month. Each day there are at least two to three classes in a variety strength disciplines.

The hardcore calendar

If you’re looking to improve your cardio, this calendar includes Peloton tandems. You will find class suggestions, usually no more than 30 minutes long, as well as ways to use the calendar if your are participating in a Power Zone Challenge.

The hardcore calendar is great for helping me stay focused and make better decisions. But here’s the best part: This Facebook group regularly posts progress photos. It is amazing to see how many people can achieve impressive results in such a short time by simply focusing on strength training.

This is my Hardcore on the Floor review.

Stay at Home, Stay Motivated and Take on New Challenges

Although it is not technically a Facebook Group, Stay Home Stay Motivated was launched on Instagram in Spring 2020. We all wanted to be happy and stay home so we created Stay Home Stay Motivated. I first followed SHSM on Instagrambefore there were even 10K people following it on Instagram. The group now has almost 29K followers.

Jenny from SHSM has set up a variety of challenges over the years. Tunde Arm Challenge is one of these challenges, which I am currently taking on. It’s technically called Tone Those Arms With Tunde.

You will be required to do the same Tunde Arms or Lightweights class at least three times per week for a minimum of a month. The entire challenge lasts three months I believe. The Tunde Arm Challenge results are inspiring!

SHSM is a great place to start. You can find a lot of Peloton instructor challenges via her Insta. I now need to find out who created the Peloton Instructor Challenge-like Peloton BINGO, where you take a class with every instructor to cross it off.

A reason to stack classes on your Peloton bicycle

Peloton introduced the ability for you to stack classes in 2021. This means you can choose which classes you want to take and then “save” the day. Your stack will be there once you open the app or jump on your bike. Because you have already planned, there is no doubt about what class you will take. This is a great option.

I have been stacking classes since joining Hardcore on The Floor. The calendar is a PDF that can be downloaded and includes links to each class for each day.

Clicking on these links will take you to the Peloton website. You can then start stacking your classes.

You can also stack classes on the website and hardware of Peloton. The app cannot allow you to stack classes. Once you have created a stack, however, you can access it directly from the app. It’s strange, I know, but this is how it works.

Here is a video that I made explaining how to stack classes.

This blog post explains the Peloton class schedule.

A Peloton calendar of workouts can help you find motivation

The Hardcore on the Floor calendar provides me with all the motivation that I need. However, it may not be for you. Here’s a Peloton calendar that I created and sold on Etsy. It costs only $2.99

Peloton Inspired Workout Calendar

Peloton-Inspired Workout Calendar PDF Printable

This Peloton-inspiredcalendar was created because I realized that while I was good at keeping my cardio going (e.g., through cycling or walking on the Peloton App), I was neglecting other aspects of my fitness, such as strength and stretching.

After I made this planner, that is now on Etsy and was able to fill in the classes I would be taking each week, I became more adept at actually following through. This is an honest review from someone who has been using the Peloton since 2016.

It is easier for me to write down my workout plans on my calendar than it is to put them in a digital one. I can ignore the notifications.

This PDF’s Page 1 through 3 is from Monday to Wednesday.

Page 2 refers to Thursday through Sunday.

You can choose from a pink or red version, and a blue one. Print once, download it once and you will never run out.

This is my blog post explaining more about the calendar.




Calendar for working out

It was something I needed to do after struggling to keep my Peloton workouts on the bike on time. It includes strength, cardio, and stretching. This is my ideal workout.

This blog post will explain how the calendar works.

Your Peloton space can be decorated with motivational quotes

People often post pictures of their Peloton gyms on Facebook. I am always struck by the motivational quotes they hang on the walls. These can be decals or framed prints that they have put up on the walls. Near my bike is a framed print that reads “You can do any thing for 30 seconds”.

It’s simple. If you place motivational phrases or instructor catchphrases near your workout area, then you can just glance up when you need it. You will hear the words and feel the motivation you need to keep going.

Etsy has a lot of Peloton motivational quotes, sayings, and mottos. Below are some I shared.
