How The MYX II Bike Compares to Peloton: An Honest Review

Besides the lower price tag, what else made me fall in love with the MYX II more than the Peloton? There’s a lot of reasons, but I’ll highlight just a few.

There’s something about the overall feel of the MYX II bike that’s more personal. The swivel screen makes it easier to do off-bike workouts, which was one issue I had with the Peloton. I would try to do burpees or other workout moves and would trip over the bike in the process. Additionally, The MYX II offers handlebar height and depth adjustments and a larger pedal diameter—all things that make a difference for someone like me who is on the shorter side. Plus, the bike comes in white and black to match the interior of your home gym, closet or corner of the house dedicated to fitness.

But, the coolest feature in my opinion is there are separate coach and music volume controls, which the Peloton doesn’t have. Some days you want to feel like you’re in a bootcamp and have your instructor is your ear telling you that you’re doing great or to up the resistance; but sometimes you want to get lost in the playlist and focus less on the trainer’s commands. 

While I miss some of the Peloton instructors, I’m falling in love with MYXfitness’ lineup of trainers. They’re fun, encouraging and know how to help you break a sweat in an engaging way. Plus, the classes are available to stream on an app, so you can do trainer-led walking, running and pilates sessions on the go.

I could go on and on about all of the other ways The MYX II Bike hits it out of the park in the fitness arena, but I’ll let you do your own research. At the end of the day, the way you sweat is up to you. But with 2022 just a few days away, I’d suggest treating yourself to The MYX Bike II because those abs and toned legs aren’t going to happen on their own!
