How Much Space Do You Need For a Peloton?

In the world of fitness, almost everyone has at least one home exercise equipment. And Peloton has taken this place of home exercise equipment. While Peloton should be in the right place for a dedicated Peloton studio, not everyone has the capability. And a decent space for placing a Peloton bike can be a challenge when the house is small.

This has made us curious to discuss how much space do you need for a Peloton in this article. And it’s not about the space, it is also about the convenience of the place. We are going to discuss everything in this article. So, stay tuned.

How Much Room Do You Need to Fit Your Peloton Bike In

There are good and bad places to put your Peloton bike. These places can be both indoor and outdoor. On top of that, there are a number of considerations that make a place ultimately good or bad to put your Peloton or Peloton Plus bike.  

Unfortunately, the reality for most people is about “Peloton in its own dedicated studio” and more like “Peloton in a small room”. Now, let’s take a look at the space needed for your Peloton.

Sufficient Floor Space for Your Peloton

Are you worried that you may not place a Peloton bike in your house as it is too small? The good news is, the Peloton is a compact piece of kit that will cover a floor space of 24 inches by 48 inches. As a result, you will always find a suitable place to place your Peloton bike despite the size of your room. You will always find unused crannies and nooks around your house, which can be proposed for a Peloton bike.

If your house happens to be considered as big, then great! Because you will have one or two spare rooms that will be barely used. For instance, a spare bedroom can be a great place for your Peloton. Aside from that, you can also manage space behind the sofa, in a home office, or at the top of the stairs with a spacious landing area.

Pro Tip –
No matter what you do, just make sure the designated room at least has 2 x 4 feet of space to adjust the Peloton bike so that you can get on and off easily.

Without further ado, let’s take a quick look at this video for a detailed demonstration –

 

A Suitable Place to Store Your Peloton Bike

Just ensuring adequate space for your Peloton bike is not enough. You make sure there is enough ventilation in the room and there is a charging port near the Peloton bike. If you live in an apartment building, then the best place to place your Peloton bike is in the basement. Because noise and vibrations remain at a minimum level in the basement. The basement is also a great place to exercise in the late night or early morning without disturbing the neighbors.

Talking about the power supply, make sure you have one close to your Peloton bike. It would be really disappointing to see the power cable stretched across the entire room to connect to the Peloton bike. And to protect your floor and the Peloton bike, it is always a wise decision to use a carpet, especially when the floor is made of wood or concrete.

With such a stable floor, we would recommend using a mat (SuperMats Heavy Duty Equipment Mats) to give ample space to your bike as well as to keep the flooring tiles protected. At the end of the day, you will get a wipe-clean surface to ride on.

Last but not least, keep your Peloton out from the reach of children. Your Peloton bike is a precious machine and you don’t want some kid doing potential damage to it. And if you are fancy enough, then follow the advice of Beth Kushnick (a decorator and home décor podcaster) – 

“The key to finding the right spot for your Peloton is to think of it as a piece of practical décor”

Considerations When Placing Your Peloton Outside or in the Garage

Talking about placing your Peloton bike in the garage, never keep it outside. Your garage is one of the best places to place your Peloton bike and it will only take a space of 2 x 4 feet inside the garage to put the bike. However, there is a weather condition to put your Peloton inside the garage. If the outside temperature remains fine most of the time in a year, then the garage is surely a great place to position your bike. But if the weather remains cold most of the time, then it can have an adverse effect.

You have to keep an eye out on your Peloton when it is outside. Despite the weather, there is always a chance of something falling on your bike. This could affect either the electronics or other moving components on your Bike. Not to mention, theft and robbery will become common if it stays outside.     

Overview

The Peloton is a compact piece of exercise equipment and therefore requires only a compact portion of the floor space with a few facilities such as a stable base, power access, and good ventilation. Cast a critical eye around your home and I’m sure you’ll find plenty of suitable places.

Even though Beth Kushnick also said –

“Exposing your Peloton is the best motivation to use it often.”

But don’t be tempted to watch a lifestyle shot of a bike in the middle of a dedicated Peloton studio. Many people do not have this kind of space available. And don’t forget to think about the danger of trips due to those power cords.
