Prime Day 2023 is in full swing, and whether you've always wanted to invest in a new piece of fitness equipment or you've specifically decided on a Peloton, one of the best day one deals is for you.
Currently, the original Peloton bike is a whopping $300 cheaper with the updated seatpost. It only costs $1,145 and includes free local delivery. As with most Prime Day deals, you must be an Amazon Prime member. If you're not an Amazon Prime member, sign up for a free 30-day trial here.
The Peloton experience is part hardware and part software—most notably because you get a well-crafted steel bike and a large 22-inch HD touchscreen for streaming classes. It's the complete package, but remember you'll need the $44-a-month All-Access membership, which gives you access to classes beyond the bike.

Original Peloton bike, $1,145 (was $1,445) at Amazon
Unlike other indoor stationary bikes that take up an inordinate amount of space, the original Peloton bike is compact with a footprint of just 120 x 60 cm. There are two stationary bars on the bottom to keep the bike stable while riding.
In order to ride comfortably and have the right height to ride, you can adjust both the set and the handlebars. The 22-inch touchscreen can even be tilted up or down for a clear view. In my testing, Peloton's bike has been ridden for over two years and performed well. It was even relocated to three different locations, requiring only a light tightening of the bolts and readjustment of the seat.
One important thing to keep in mind: You must get shoes that lock in place in order to safely and properly ride the Peloton Bike. Luckily, Peloton uses the popular "Delta Clip" and offers their own line of shoes. The two models are also discounted for Prime Day and come with a set of clips.

- Peloton Altos Cycling Shoes, $87 (was $145) at Amazon
Get free local delivery when you order from Amazon, and the Peloton Bike is now self-installable, with instructions included for easy assembly. Once everything is assembled, simply turn on the bike and follow the on-screen setup instructions. After you sign up for a ride, all controls are performed on the touchscreen - from searching by artist or lesson level to starting the lesson.
Music plays a big part in any workout and with the Original Peloton Bike you get quite a powerful system, made possible by two rear-facing speakers producing stereo sound. You can also connect Bluetooth headphones for a more personal experience. It is also useful when the bike is placed in a common room.
Considering the All-Access membership costs $44 a month, it's good to know that it gives you access to your whole family and classes beyond the bike. Peloton also offers meditation, strength training, yoga, dance, Pilates, and HIIT, among others. You can stream these via the bike's screen or via the Peloton app for Android, iOS and a variety of TV platforms.
The biggest cost of getting started with Peloton is the hardware, and you can currently pick up the original bike for a whopping 21% off. This brings the cost of the original Peloton bike down to just $1,145, and it comes with the updated seatpost so you don't have to order it separately. Just act fast because if the Peloton was previously on sale during Prime Day and Black Friday, it's actually sold out.
