We’re All Suffering from Peloton FOMO

 Is anyone else feeling just a little left out because they’re not rich enough to join this Peloton craze? Trust me. I’d tear it up on one of these bikes if I could, but I’m just apparently not cool enough. And I’m not sure it would fit in my toy-sized Brooklyn apartment. Not with the dog and the recording equipment.

So what to do, what to do? It points out a really interesting problem in the times of COVID. The same issues with financial and social disparity with boutique fitness gyms like F45, Barry’s Bootcamp, CrossFIt, SoulCycle, etc. have followed us into the pandemic.

Peloton, NordicTrack, AssaultFitness, Bowflex, and the like are all potent but direly expensive options for those who can afford to live their lives with easier access to fitness solutions. 

Just food for thought if you’re slumming it out with me on the streets, at the track, and with an old rusty kettlebell. You’re a fighter. You’re scrappy. And you don’t need a Peloton.

But yeah, I want one too.
