Any particular Male instructors that you can recommend? I'm open to suggestions  in all categories other than cycling.

Well Iím female so I most often stick with the females. But once in a while DH is around so Iíll try a male instructor. I think for strength classes try Andy, Ben, Adrian, Chase, Matty.

What are the workouts like? Is there any program that can make you feel like you are cycling through different roads or scenery so it's not so boring?

I think there is a discount ending Sunday.

They have a 30 day home trial and I believe you can return for free within that window.  You can also sign up for the Peloton app for $13/month if you want to get a feel for it.

I find the metrics combined with the instructor's directions make the classes much less boring than plain riding, but they do also have scenic rides.  Not tons though.  (I personally don't care for them.)

The $39/month membership is required?

Whoops. I thought I saw a DW in one of your earlier posts.
Thanx for the suggestions. I'll check them out.

To use the bike as anything but a stationary bike, yes.

Has anyone ever tried Ergatta rowing machine? It looks amazing! (and no non-tznius classes).

Peloton Halts Production of it's bikes citing reduced demand:

I guess people really prefer to go to gyms. I also imagine that people who were taking advantage of payback discounts from their credit cards, probably don't want to pay the full amount for the service.

I haven't tried zwift, but from what I understand, you can go down the rabbit hole costwise with this too.

I think the cheapest setup will cost you about $3-400 (basic trainer, cadence sensor, HR Strap) plus you need to have a bike and an ipad or laptop. Some of the smart trainers can cost more than a Peloton itself. I think Wahoo makes a device for Zwift that will raise and lower the front end of your bike to simulate hills.
