Peloton became a household name while much of the world was quarantined during the spring, and NFL athletes were leading the charge.
Over on PageSix.com, various NFL athletes were interviewed about their obsessions with Peloton. In a recent interview, Patrick Mahomes showed his competitive nature with the Leaderboard.
‘I’m so damn competitive that I kill myself,’ Mahomes said at the time. ‘I see the leaderboard, and I see that, like, Brian from North Carolina is catching me, and I’m like: “There’s no way.”‘
The article goes on to document Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Adrian Colbert. All three athletes have been quoted about their love of their Peloton bikes on multiple occasions.
Wilson was quoted in GQ last year talking about his love of the connected fitness bike.
I lift three times a week during the season. But I make my body move in some way every single day. Swimming is a big part of it, and working to be as mobile as possible. It’s important for me to make sure my trunk is moving right. And I can’t forget the Peloton bike. It’s me and Ciara’s favorite thing.
A Peloton bike is the perfect fitness tool from beginners to NFL athletes. With the ability to change resistance to make the workout harder, it’s a platform to grow with you as your fitness goals change. It’s a lot of fun following professional athletes to see if you can pass them on the leaderboard as well.
