Peloton Removing “Class Rating” Display From Class Information on Bike, Tread, Row, App, and Web

Peloton has quietly removed one of the key statistics members are accustomed to seeing when viewing class information on a hardware device and the web browser. In recent days, members have noticed that the class rating – which is displayed as a percentage and indicates how the class was graded overall by members who already completed it – has disappeared.

Update – The class display information has been removed from displaying in the app as well now.

Previously there were three pieces of information available in the “member activity” section of the class information: total workouts, difficulty, and rating. As of late, the rating field is no longer appearing for most members on Bike, Tread, and Row devices, as well as the web browser.

At first it was unclear whether this was a bug or an intentional change from Peloton. Pelo Buddy reached out to Peloton for clarification, and Peloton confirmed that the removal of the class rating was deliberate.

The reasoning provided was that the vast majority of classes are all rated within the 99%-100% range – meaning that there was not much differentiation provided via this statistic and Peloton felt that the number was not providing any helpful insights for members as they browse classes.

However, Peloton shared that they see much more variety in the difficulty score – which shows a number between 1 and 10 with decimals, indicating how challenging members who took the class thought it was – so they made an intentional decision to keep that statistic.

Something to note: the “top rated” sorting option for class filters is still available, even though members can no longer see the actual rating on hardware devices or the web browser. It is currently unclear whether Peloton will do away with that sorting option or keep it.

At first, both the iOS and Android apps were still display the rating in class information. Around the end of July or beginning of August, this was also removed from the Peloton apps as well.

    I want class ratings back!!

  • Dana says:

    I always refer to the ratings when selecting a class. Hope they change their minds. I would like to see an instructor difficulty rating different than that of the rider.

  • Jean Mansen says:

    I agree. I loved seeing the class rating value. There was more variation in the rating than noted in the article. I often sort by “top rated” and would be sad to lose that valuable feature.

  • Mary says:

    I always check to see the ratings!!! What if I’m not in the mood to get my ass kicked??? Alternatively, what if I REALLY need my ass kicked? How will I know?
    Ugggh, peloton….. I don’t like this change 😖

  • jonathan says:

    Peleton is changing and not for the better. They have eliminated a lot the older rides which were longer. Have fewer longer rides changing the rating systems, virtually impossible to attend in house rides, poor ability to contact people there, on and on. They need to improve!!!

  • GoTabataOnYourTerraCotta says:

    Personally don’t see this as a loss. I like to sort by difficulty and there seems to be an inverse correlation between difficulty and class rating.

  • GinBelle says:

    I’m not bothered by the rating but I wish you could filter by a difficultly range, rather than sort.

  • Andy says:

    For a company that is able to collect so much data, Peloton seemingly has no idea what most of it means or how to utilize it. The class rating percentage is a very useful metric – it told me which classes to avoid! Yes, most classes were in the 99% – 100% range, as they should be. Classes rated < 98% served as a warning … proceed at your own risk. And the times I did, I regretted it.

    Just because the distribution is narrow, doesn't mean there isn't value in the data.

  • Tammy says:

    I never knew it existed. How do yo use it? What decisions does it help you make? I feel like I might be missing out on something and I have been a part of the Peloton community for about 4 years.

  • ljg says:

    I did notice that the classes were almost exclusively rated at 99% or 100% so I totally get the though process behind this.

  • Shyrl D Roberts says:

    #InSpiteOfInjury. As an app user, I used the rating to increase my Power Zones twice this summer, realizing the class wasn’t as hard on me as it SHOULD be! Haha. Also used the PZ descriptions and adjusted my zone accordingly.

  • Rachel Camp says:

    Sure, most ratings are between 99-100. But the ones that are below it are truly among the worst classes I have taken. I use that data religiously (for everything from stretch classes to rides) and very much hope peloton reconsiders.

  • Laura says:

    Taking this feature away is extremely disappointing and upsetting. I always used the ratings and felt they were extremely helpful.

  • Terre Harrison says:

    I used the ratings feature all the time! It definitely helped me make decisions on which class to take or avoid. If it was 98% or less, I would look for a different class. I’m so bummed I can’t see that info. anymore 😢

  • Jessica Dianderas says:

    I’m super disappointed about this decision. I used the rating to help me decide on every class I took! I found it really useful. I would normally only take classes rated 99.5 and above. I hope they bring it back

  • Marci says:

    I would like the ratings back! I definite used the ratings to help me decide which class to take. Why ask us if we liked the class or not – thumbs up or down if you are not going to provide us with that feedback? It’s ridiculous to use the excuse most classes between 99-100%…some are not and when they are 98.7 % I’m not gong to take it. Why? Because apparently more people than usual gave it a thumbs down! Bring ratings back please!

  • Ronni says:

    I used it regularly and it was helpful to know when classes were bad. As indicated in the explanation, most classes are rated 99-100, so guess what, when a class is rated 97 it is likely pretty bad! Just sayin!

  • Kara Phillips says:

    I ALWAYS checked the ratings and would avoid the sub 99% ratings so this is a big loss :/

  • GoGoInHeels says:

    I agree with Kara. Avoided rides with sub 99% rides. Not sure how to grade rides based on difficulty. Seems I’m usually in the “8” range, but “high eight” or “low eight”. Nines are beyond! Sevens are very easy. The only ten I ever had was an FTP. But difficulty ratings are usually a good indicator for picking the class for the day.

  • Alex says:

    They should definitely bring the ratings back!! I would always take the 100 percent loved classes first bc I knew they had to be good… anything under a 98 I’d steer clear of. This seems like more of a ‘woke’ policy to me… like everyone gets a trophy kind of thing. Some instructors definitely got worse ratings than others maybe they couldn’t take it. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • JR says:

    Definitely bring ratings back! If a class was rated 98% or lower, I found that meant thousands of people didn’t love the class – and when you’re short on time that info is so helpful!
