Peloton has expanded their popular Power Zone training program with two additional instructors: Sam Yo and Erik Jäger. Unlike Peloton’s other classes, members taking Power Zone workouts focus on staying in their individualized zones.
The addition of Sam and Erik brings the Power Zone roster up to six instructors – twice the size it was one year ago.
Sam Yo is the second UK-based Peloton instructor to be added to the power zone team; he will be joining Ben Aldis, who was brought into the group last year. Erik Jäger will be the first German speaking coach to teach Power Zone classes.
This morning, both Sam and Erik each had five new Power Zone classes added to Peloton’s on-demand library. However, as of the time of this article, it seems that Erik’s classes have been temporarily taken down.
Connect The Watts’ Take
Personally, I am a big fan of Peloton’s Power Zone program and am happy to see it continue to expand. German speaking members will be very pleased to have Erik Jäger joining the Power Zone roster.
Sam Yo is one of my favorite Peloton instructors, so I am personally very happy to see him added here. Since I stick primarily to Power Zone training (and Kendall death metal rides), I have rarely been able to take classes with Sam.
Unfortunately, looking ahead at Peloton’s schedule, it does not seem that more instructors means there will be more Power Zone classes to choose from. Outside of the addition of German Power Zone classes, it does not seem like more frequent Power Zone rides will be available.
