Where are the Live Classes on Peloton?

The interesting bit about the Peloton live classes is that they are easy to access. Once you log in to your account, you will see at least three upcoming classes and the remaining time before they are due. You can use the arrow at the end of the last class to get more live classes.

Alternatively, go to the schedule option at the top of the options, second from the left. Click on it to view the range of live classes available.

All the upcoming classes will have the ‘count me in’ option, which turns to ‘join’ if the class is in progress.

How to Join Peloton Live Classes

Search for the class you intend to join for the Peloton class schedule for the day or in the next 14 days. Then, click the ‘count me in’ / schedule‘ option, and you will be notified when the class is about to start. You will also see the number of people registered for the class.

On the other hand, if you want a class already in progress, go for classes with a red ‘Join’ option. You may miss the preliminary warm-ups and intro, but you will have a class when you really need it.

Between the two options, though, it is better to go for a class available from the introductory bit. The warm-up session is necessary for an effective workout and to prevent burnout as well.

Can You Stack Live Classes on Peloton?

No, you cannot. Unfortunately, the stacking feature is only available for the on-demand classes. However, since the only difference between the live and on-demand classes is the real-time interaction with the instructor, you can go for on-demand classes when the stacking feature is necessary for your plans.

Nevertheless, if you work out at night and are in the U.S., you may not find NYC classes, but you will definitely find your luck in classes cast from Germany and London studios.

Are There Live Classes On Peloton All the Time?

No, they are not. Unlike the on-demand classes, Peloton live classes are not always available. However, when you check the schedule, you will see the available live classes for the day and even for the next fortnight.

Some classes are available daily and even at least every two hours. Others are only available approximately thrice a day. Also, some days are more packed with classes than others.

It all boils down to the popularity of the classes and days when the classes are most in demand. For instance, there are more riders on a daily basis compared to all the other workouts. Therefore, peloton rides are the most popular of all the workouts. Actually, some people do not even realize that Peloton has other classes on top of the rides.

Are the Peloton Live Classes Only in English?

Does Peloton Have Live Studio Classes?

Pre-Covid, Peloton had live studio classes in their New York and London studios. One would book the class at https://studio.onepeloton.com/ and book a class at least a week in advance.

You need to log in with your Peloton credentials to access the live class schedule, then make your booking. Surprisingly, you don’t need an extra account for in-studio classes. You just have to use your home Peloton account for your in-studio Peloton classes.

Moreover, you can book and purchase a spot for yourself, friends, and relatives. You can book as many as five spots. And, if you need more spots, say 10, you just need to contact the Events Team at Peloton for arrangements.

How much are the Peloton in-studio classes?

The in-studio classes on Peloton were $32 per class, though you would get a discount and pay $20. Then, if you book for five spots, you would get the classes at $150. The more spots you book, the lower the costs. For 20 spots, you would pay $540 and only $750 for 30 slots.

As with the home workout classes, the studio classes had an unlimited membership option, costing $400 per month.

The studios are still closed to the public, and the dates of reopening are not yet available. But hopefully, the rates will remain when the studios reopen.

Peloton studio classes are very expensive, and just a single class is almost as much as a full month of unlimited Peloton subscription. More surprisingly, almost as much as three months of digital app subscription fees.

However, you get an opportunity to interact with your best instructors and have a live view of how the classes are prepared. Even better, you can ask the instructors questions in person, not forgetting a selfie for your library.

Disadvantages of Peloton Live Classes

  • Unlike the on-demand classes, you cannot pause or rewind the live classes. And in as much as they later become the on-demand classes, they will take you at least 24 hours to get them.
  • You cannot stack the live Peloton classes for a schedule
  • New classes such as barre and pilate may not be available in live class options at first
  • The live classes offer no time for preparation if you get them just starting or already in progress. And when in progress, you don’t even get the highly-recommended warm-up sessions.
