You don’t need to spend $1,495 on a stationary bike if you don’t want to. Here are some alternatives to Peloton. Pro-Form At $1,495 a pop, Peloton stationary bikes are not for the budget-conscious. But there are plenty of Peloton alternatives for a fraction of the cost if you still want to stream spin classes from home .
If you want a taste of the Peloton experience for less money, the Peloton app can be used with just about any brand of stationary bike that can hold a tablet or smartphone. The app offers spin, running, strength and yoga classes, plus many more human-led workouts. A digital membership costs $12.99 per month. You won’t reach the leaderboard without a Peloton bike, but you can still participate in classes. (Some of these Peloton alternative bikes offer their own apps, but many of them also have higher monthly fees.)
