Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: FREE! You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
This week we have a FREE topic, so it gives me an opportunity to share some of my favorite Peloton classes! This is a topic I’ve wanted to write about for a while because there are so many instructors and different types of workouts to choose from – it can be overwhelming! Here are my three favorite classes per workout.
I’m convinced that Jess tried to kill me in the Lil Wayne strength class. I was sore for two days after that class. Literally any of the Flash 15 classes are great. You can’t go wrong with any of them, but so far this one has been my favorite. Matty really loves core work and this class was no exception! The music wasn’t the best but the moves were hard.
The app has a few different standing yoga classes. I like to do this one sometimes during the workday, especially when my back feels a little tight. The hips yoga class is great for tight hips. Chelsea did a great job with the Beyonce yoga class – loved her song selections and the flow of the class – she made it fun!
I love the Weeknd stretch because the music is good and it’s a 15 minute stretch which really allows you to spend time in certain stretches. The Smokey Robinson stretch is another good one because of the really chill music. The five minute pre-run warm up is to the song “Get Low” but Lil Jon. You haven’t lived until you’ve done a pre-run stretch with Matt vibing out to Get Low, lol.
The Outkast ride is hands down my favorite ride ever. Denis really knows A LOT about music so when he does an Artist Series ride, you’re always in for a treat. As you know I love music so I appreciate how much knowledge he has about different genres of music. Cody absolutely loves Britney Spears so of course this ride is phenomenal. You can never go wrong with a Club Bangers Ride and this one in my absolute favorite. The playlist is SO good!
The Lil Wayne run made me feel like I was running in a club. Every song was a hit and the run was SO much fun. The Halloween run with Mara Thoner (aka Matty) was an absolute riot! I can’t remember anything about the songs or what was said during the run because I was laughing so hard. It was a true treat. I loved the Lizzo run because it was all about self acceptance and loving yourself – a great message to hear anytime.
All three of these tread bootcamps are great for different reasons. The Beyonce bootcamp was full of powerful songs and mantras from Jess. The Soca bootcamp was one big party! Chase’s infectious smile and energy made it a super fun class. The Two For One bootcamp was great because Jess and Chase have a playful banter (almost like sister/brother), but they both still managed to kick my butt.
I haven’t done enough of the cardio, outdoor running or bike bootcamp classes, but here’s one class I have enjoyed from each category:
For the meditations, you really can’t go wrong with any of the sleep or gratitude meditations, those are my two favorites and all the instructors are good!
Tell me: If you’re a Peloton user, what’s your favorite class? If you’re not a Peloton user, what has been your favorite group fitness class or run?
