Setting up your own personal spin studio at home sounds great in theory—until you consider the $2,000+ price tag for the bike alone. Which is why you might be tempted to cancel your gym membership for the Myx Plus bundle. For just $1,499, you get a commercial-grade spin bike with a stabilizing mat, a six-piece weight set, a kettlebell, an oversize exercise mat, a resistance band, a foam roller and a heart rate monitor—aka everything you could ever want for a killer at-home gym. Myx members pay $29/month for access to hundreds of workouts both on and off the bike as well as access to the mobile app.
“It’s like having a personal trainer in my house and having the option to select 15, 20, 30 or 45 minute workouts is amazing. It actually motivates me to work out even when I have limited time to do so,” one busy mom says of the set and the accompanying virtual workouts from world-class coaches.
Beyond spin classes, Myx members get access to HIIT, barre, kettlebell, kickboxing and yoga classes. Users say this variation breaks up the monotony of working out, and one even claims that it’s helped her get into the best shape of her life. The bike itself features a 41 pound flywheel and an easy-to-use swiveling touchscreen monitor. Oh, and the compact dimensions (3’4” by 1’7”) ensure that it won’t take up too much floor space in your basement.
If you’re thinking this whole approach sounds similar to Peloton, you’re right, but there are a few key differences. The most obvious one is cost: The basic Peloton bike will cost you $2,245 versus Myx Fitness’s price of $1,499 (which includes more than just a bike). And the $29/month membership will save you $10 a month compared to Peloton’s $39/month rate. Then, there’s the fact that Myx Fitness classes have a one-to-one coaching style, which makes for a much more personal feel.
All that plus a 30-day return policy, a one year warranty and full service delivery means we’re officially team Myx.
