The Home Depot Backyard hosts first-ever Peloton Field Day

Peloton fans packed into Atlanta’s The Home Depot Backyard this morning, working up a sweat during a first-of-its-kind event for the fitness phenomenon.

The Home Depot Backyard hosted a Peloton Field Day from 8:00 a.m. to Noon this morning as part of the highly-anticipated Peloton On Tour Atlanta stop. The fitness platform’s tour includes five cities, three of which are here in the United States: Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta. The local tour stop kicked off yesterday with a Peloton Instructor Experience, and continues tomorrow with live group classes and a Leaderboard Awards celebration. During this morning’s Field Day — which is a new concept for the company and the tour — participants signed up for a 90-minute session including four fitness-focused games led by an Instructor Team Captain.

Of course, a main attraction of the tour is getting to meet some of Peloton’s most popular instructors; here in Atlanta, that includes Matt Wilpers, Chelsea Jackson Roberts, Alex Toussaint, Kristen Ferguson, Marcel Dinkins, and Jon Hosking. Matt Wilpers — a former Division I distance runner — attended Georgia State University, and Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts is a graduate of Spelman College. 

Of course, we never pass up a chance to spend a morning at The Home Depot Backyard, located in the shadow of beautiful Mercedes-Benz Stadium. And we certainly weren’t going to miss an opportunity to get some fitness tips from the Peloton pros.
