In an announcement on Instagram, Peloton instructor Ben Alldis revealed he will be joining the Power Zone Training crew as an additional member. Peloton made a similar announcement via Twitter.
Ben Alldis is a UK-based former athlete that worked in finance before training others as a side hustle. Soon, Ben became a Peloton instructor where he has most recently been teaching cycling and strength classes.
Now, Ben has taken his fitness career one step further by joining a select group of Peloton instructors leading Power Zone classes. Alldis made the news official via his Instagram this morning.
Alldis joins fellow instructors Matt Wilpers, Olivia Amato, Denis Morton, and Christine D’Ercole in the Power Zone Training program and is the first member from the UK.
Power Zone Training is a more specialized form of cycling training focused specifically on output. Where instructors on traditional Peloton rides offer a specific cadence and resistance range to aim for, Power Zones focus more of targeting specific zones (seven total) for a given amount of time.
These zones consist of an individuals range of output or power based on a given cadence from the instructor. Essentially, there is not as large a focus on specific resistance for Power Zone riders as long as they are meeting the cadence and working hard enough to get their output into the designated zone from the instructor.
Ben Alldis is now the newest Peloton team member to join the PZ crew and has already gotten some love from fellow instructors like Matt Wilpers.
Alldis’ first live Power Zone ride is scheduled for this Friday, April 30, at 9 a.m. EDT as part of Peloton’s annual Homecoming event.
