How to get peloton Badges?
It’s pretty simple and plain to get these badges. If you get a high score in a specific workout like riding or running, then you get yourself a badge. That’s called a “milestone badge.”
For example, if you complete your 100th workout, the badge you will get for completing this milestone is called the “Century Club” badge. On hitting this particular workout, you will also get a physical gift like a free shirt along with a century club badge.
Similarly, you will be rewarded a “millennium club badge” on hitting the 1000th workout milestone.
On completing a particular number of workouts, you will get a particular milestone badge respectively. For example, the badge you get on 50 rides and the badge you get on 50 miles will be different. The badge color will also vary based on the type and number of times you hit that workout.
Likewise, if you keep doing any workout or exercise continuously for many days or weeks in a row without taking any break, then you get a “peloton streaks badge.”
Peloton breaks this into day streaks and week streaks depending upon how often you do that exercise or workout.
On missing any day or week, you can also reset the counter and start all over again. Hence you can achieve many same peloton badges more than once.
Are wondering if workouts like yoga, strength, or meditation can also be counted towards the total? There is a nice thing about the peloton. Yes, these exercises are also counted in your total scores if you want to earn a specific badge.
