This fitness app is up against Peloton and I'm all for cheaper alternatives

The Fiit training app has released new workouts that can be done on indoor bikes, including the Concept2 BikeErg and the Keizer M3i indoor bike. It comes after interactive rowing and treadmill exercises were added to the app earlier this year.

The addition of these hybrid workouts, which can be done at home or in the gym, means that Fiit could give Peloton a run for its money, with Fiit's subscription set at €9.99 per month, c It's €30 (€33 ) per month cheaper than Peloton. Fiit subscribers can use any bike for these workouts, but if you want to log your workout, connecting to the Concept2 BikeErg or Keizer M3i Indoor Cycle, whether you're at home or at the gym, means you'll be able to enjoy a more interactive experience. train and record stats like RPM, calories, and distance.

Hybrid training is becoming more and more popular as people realize they don't need to limit themselves to exercising at home or at the gym. Fiit's 11 bike workouts allow its members to also work out at the gym when they want to switch up their fitness routine.

Fiit will also be launching plenty of other bike workouts on December 12, along with its Bike Academy, a two-week indoor cycling masterclass that will give first-time cyclists the chance to get ahead of their competition.

In March, the company launched the Fit Tread, again competing with Peloton's treadmill offerings, and like the bike workouts, the interactive classes can be taken on any manual or powered treadmill, though members will need to run on an AssaultRunner to be fully connected. experience. with the Fit Tracker.

Fiit demonstrated its commitment to hybrid workouts by partnering with The Gym Group in 2020 and now offers its members access to Fiit Pods at company gyms, allowing them to perform these workouts on the big screen.

Could this be a big step for Fiit?

Let's face it: Peloton's app is expensive, especially when you've already paid for an expensive bike or treadmill, and then have to pay an extra $39.99 / £44 / AU$59 for your workouts every month. I love my Peloton bike and its on-demand workouts keep me motivated, but it costs almost £500 a year, and I haven't even left the house.

That's why I've always liked the Fiit app, it's cheap, it has great workouts and the company never stops innovating - they know not everyone wants to train just in the confines of their house. And with the fitness industry changing as fast as it is, companies that can stay ahead of the competition and spot future trends first will continue to succeed.

Fiit isn't new to the industry: It launched in 2017 with hundreds of live and on-demand workouts, mostly consisting of HIIT, strength, and yoga workouts. With gym closures and home workouts becoming the norm, the app has become a favorite among fitness enthusiasts.

Many of us have adapted to a hybrid way of exercising, and there's no reason we can't do the same with our workouts. I love working from home, but it's also nice to get out of the house and interact with people; It should be neither one nor the other, and it's good to see Fiit embrace that philosophy.
