Philadelphia, PA - One of the differences between Peloton and SoulCycle is the riding style. While SoulCycle bikes are similar in style, their instructors are different. Peloton instructors have more of a "clean" style and tend to mimic a traditional cycling workout. This difference could be significant for the individual trying the SoulCycle program. Here are some of the pros and cons of both.
Peloton Vs. SoulCycle
The SoulCycle at-home bike is not as immersive. While both bikes offer a great workout, SoulCycle is more like a dance party than a workout. The music plays a large part in the experience. It feels like a cardio dance. Despite the similarities in style, SoulCycle is more traditional in its approach. For instance, Peloton's music is less upbeat than SoulCycle's.
The two bikes are comparable in price. SoulCycle offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for its customers. The Peloton's bikes are available online at many locations, but SoulCycle offers a more personalized experience. Both are convenient for busy individuals who can't make it to the studio. SoulCycle's at-home bike costs $2,500. The SoulCycle bike is also a more affordable option than Peloton.
SoulCycle at-home bikes don't have leaderboards. However, they have high-energy, dance-like classes emphasizing matched cadence and encouragement. As a result, SoulCycle feels less like an exercise than a high-energy cardio dance. The music plays a huge role in creating a fun atmosphere, and SoulCycle is great for those who enjoy the idea of a mind-body experience.
