Stop Right Now: The Peloton x Spice Girls Artist Series Starts Today
Peloton members know the brand has already fulfilled a long list of musical fantasies. A Britney Spears ride led by none other than ultimate superfan Cody Rigsby? Check. An award-worthy Beyoncé-themed class expertly instructed by Alex Toussaint and Tunde Oyeneyin? Check. A three-day musical festival brainchild of Jess King that featured an eclectic array of artists such as Tina Turner, Demi Lovato, and Gwen Stefani (Kendall Toole, you killed it with that high ponytail, girl)? Check, check, check.
Despite all that musical exploration, there's one iconic pop journey Peloton has yet to embark on — until now. Runners, cyclists, yogis, and strength enthusiasts, get ready to spice up your lives: Beginning today, Peloton is coming through with an exclusive series of classes set to the legendary sounds of the Spice Girls. That's right — the Peloton x Spice Girls Artist Series has arrived, and it is epic.
Dropping just in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary (!) of the Spice Girls' debut single, "Wannabe" -- which catapulted the British girl group to superstardom -- the Peloton series includes bike, treadmill, barre, yoga, and strength workouts, so there's something for everyone (just like the multifaceted group themselves). So whether you identify as a Baby, Ginger, Scary, Sporty, or Posh, you can find a class that speaks to you.
Here is a schedule of what's on tap for live rides this week. And remember, if you can't join in or want to spin again, the on-demand classes will be available on the app.

Workout Clothes That Channel Your Inner-Spice Girl
Now that you know your schedule, it's time to tackle what is arguably the most important component of this 2000s-era week-long pop party: your wardrobe. Anyone familiar with the Peloton team's style knows that they absolutely crush it in the wardrobe department for themed-artist rides (see: Jess Sims' adorable Whitney Houston-inspired lewk, for example). Fashion isn't everything when it comes to fitness, but putting together a kick-ass outfit may just inspire you to hit a PR, a.k.a. a personal record, (or at least have so much fun, you'll forget you're sweating up a storm). Here are some spicy options to inspire you this week — choose your fighter and shop accordingly.
