Bring the calo­rie burn of spin to the com­fort of your own home with this game-chang­ing kit

While the sense of com­pe­ti­tion and calo­rie burn of a spin class are al­lur­ing, the same can’t be said of many stu­dios’ nose­bleedin­duc­ing EDM and strobe lights. So, you’re left to ei­ther grin and bear it all, or miss out al­to­gether.

Now, thanks to Pelo­ton, you no longer need to com­pro­mise. Its in­no­va­tions bring the ben­e­fits of the spin class to your home gym – which also means no more dress­ing for work in cramped chang­ing rooms. Equipped with a 22in screen, this sta­tion­ary bike con­nects you with classes from the world’s best in­struc­tors. MH jumped in the sad­dle to test whether the fu­ture of home work­outs re­ally has ar­rived. Get ready to step your car­dio up a gear.
