Peloton appears to be experiencing a bug with the December 2023 strength challenge. As of publishing time, the challenge is recording any workout – in any modality – as a strength class, meaning that members are already earning badges and reaching the designated goals according to the challenge, even if they haven’t actually completed the required number of strength workouts.
Peloton’s monthly strength challenge occurs every month, and tracks the number of strength workouts completed by each member. There are three badges available: completing five strength workouts within the month earns a bronze; completing 10 strength workouts within the month earns a silver; and completing 15 strength workouts within the month earns a gold.
However, starting December 1, the challenge is recording every single workout – such as rides, rows, meditations, stretches, etc. – as a “strength” workout, meaning that many members are already earning badges for the strength challenge, even though they have not actually fulfilled the requirements.
This issue has happened in the past, most recently in September. The bug appears to be affecting all Peloton members. Though Peloton has not communicated anything regarding the matter, we anticipate that the problem will be fixed within the coming days. Once addressed, members will likely need to quit and then rejoin the challenge to ensure their workouts are tracking correctly for the remainder of the month.
As always, you can opt into Peloton’s monthly challenges via the web browser, app, or your hardware device.
