Peloton users can now create their own personalized training routines

You can create a “stack” using either bike (or bike +), tread, or the web (unfortunately you won’t be able to do this with the app yet). Tap a stack icon to add a class to your stack. You can also choose to quickly add a class by long pressing its tile (you can have up to 10 classes per stack). From there you can preview the stack, and if you’re happy with it, you can hit start and the workout will begin.

After the first lesson is finished, you will see a prompt asking if you want to “continue the stack” or “maybe later”. The latter is especially useful if your bike or tread is in a different area of ​​the house. So for example, if you’re going from a cycling class to a post-ride stretch, you might want to click “maybe later”, so you can get off the bike, go to another room, run the Peloton app on your device of choice, then pick up the stack from there.

The biggest downside, however, is that you will have to build a new stack each time; there is currently no way to save them for future workouts. Peloton says this will encourage people to explore different classes, but I can’t help but think that this is a huge flaw that almost negates the idea of ​​stacked classes in the first place. That said, the company said it is “exploring” additional features like sharing and battery backup, so maybe they will be added later.

The feature will be available today on all platforms as long as your software is up to date.
