Move over Peloton, there is a new bike in town. Here is your chance to have your proverbial home fitness cake and eat it too with Beachbody’s brand new professional grade MYX bike that allows you to train in live interactive classes from the comfort of your living or workout room (if you have that kind of space). The swivel screen also doubles as your TV screen for any of the other Beachbody on Demand (BOD) classes, so you can squeeze your bike into any corner without having to worry about setting up an additional TV.
If all of this reminds you of the Peloton exercise bike, let me tell you, you are not wrong. However, there are some differences. If you want to compare the two, check out this chart:
All things considered, I would say that the BOD MYX fitness home studio seems to offer just a little bit more convenience in terms of rider height spectrum and the fact that you can pause your workouts if needed. Not to mention that having to buy cycling shoes would be just a little too much for some of us. So it’s a good thing Beachbody designed the pedals for any type of exercise shoes. The BOD bike also takes up less space than the Peloton, which is definitely a plus for anyone living in an apartment or small house. And even price-wise Beachbody beats Peloton as it is about $100 cheaper in total cost, which translates into a $9-savings if you opt for the monthly payment plan. Needless to say, there is a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee offered by Beachbody for the first 30 days, so you can return the BOD MYX bike if you are truly not getting anything out of it.
Now, if you have ever owned a treadmill or stationary exercise bike that were basically just collecting dust, you might feel inclined to write this new BOD MYX bike off rather quickly. But keep in mind that it doubles as your home fitness studio and offers interactive participation in live online classes, which might just help beat the COVID isolation blues and spur you on to better performance. Is it worth the price? You won’t know until you try it.
