Inside the Peloton Community Dedicated to Black Women
Home to more than 7,000 members worldwide, this at-home cycling group is all about sisterhood and accountability
Teresia Greer and her Peloton bike.
Before converting to Peloton, she’d frequent boutique gyms and drive 25 minutes for other group workout classes.
“When you add up how much you spend on classes, gas, personal training, gym memberships, and random online fitness classes, you will most likely find that you’ve been spending more money on membership and equipment that is not as accessible and not as comprehensive as Peloton.
In addition to sisterhood and solidarity, Greer has also found the #BlackGirlMagic group to be an effective accountability group, with members often talking about chasing each other on the leaderboard — the digital dashboard that tracks helpful metrics, such as calories burned and how you rank against other Peloton members.
“There is something powerful about a group of women coming together organized around their own self-care and fitness journeys,” Snowden says.
