Peloton and Spotify are leveling up their partnership.

Beginning this week, the fitness giant will be at the center of Spotify's Workout Hub, which boasts a collection of music playlists specified by workouts, including training, yoga, running, and meditation, according to Spotify's official press release. Under the Curated by Peloton section, Spotify users can access seven unique playlists, two of which are dedicated to fitness disciplines (running and strength), whereas the other five have been crafted by beloved instructors Adrian Williams, Ally Love, Tunde Oyeneyin, Mariana Fernández, and Robin Arzón, who is also Peloton's VP of Fitness Programming. (

Beyond the playlists featured on Spotify, the audio streaming service has also teamed with Peloton on 11 co-curated classes for strength, running, and cycling-based workouts. The classes will feature music from Spotify's most popular playlists, including Today's Top Hits, Door Knockers, and Indigo, among others. "These playlists carry over feel-good vibrations from your workouts into the rest of your day," notes Peloton's official release.

Unsure of which class to take first? Not to worry as Spotify has you covered. For starters, you can log into your Spotify account (and if you don't have one, you can either select a free package, which includes ads, or the $10 per month premium plan without ads) to take the "Find My Instructor" quiz. Upon logging in, you'll be asked a series of questions, ranging from "what workouts do you generally do," (i.e. strength, cycling, running, etc.) to "what makes you show up" (i.e. the music, a bit of guidance). A Peloton instructor will then be selected based on the answers you provided, as well as three other top matches. (

Peloton and Spotify originally teamed up in 2020, when instructors Olivia Amato and Kendall Toole for their power hour workouts, co-created with artist deadmau5. And while other Spotify-fueled classes have since appeared on the fitness platform, Disney fanatics celebrated this past summer when four new workouts debuted, including a cycling ride guided by Mickey Mouse fan and Dancing With the Stars competitor, Cody Rigsby.

Between a recent partnership with Delta Air Lines (yes, you can now access Peloton classes at 30,000 feet) and an even bigger mash-up with Spotify, it's safe to say the fitness platform is soaring to new heights in 2021.
