Peloton The Annual Challenge Calculator: How many minutes do I need to work out each day to complete the challenge in 2023?

Each year, Peloton has a year-long challenge called “The Annual”. The 2023 challenge was announced on December 19th. The Annual Challenge encourages Peloton members to workout consistently throughout the year. As members earn more minutes worked out, they get higher level badges. Minutes are tracked across all activity types. (Note you can jump straight to the calculator here!)

Members are able to get their first badge once they have worked out for 1,000 minutes. Badges are then available every 1,000 minutes up to 10,000 minutes, and then it jumps up to 15,000 minutes. There are also 18,000 and 20,000 minute badges.

With this challenge, many people wonder how many minutes they need to work out every day in order to get a certain badge in Peloton’s The Annual Challenge. To help with this, we’ve created a calculator for you.

First, you’ll want to select the number of minutes you are aiming for by the end of the year. It defaults to the highest level badge (20,000 minutes), but you can use the dropdown to pick any other level. We’ve also added a 25,000 and 30,000 level in case Peloton adds those at a later date (although in 2022, Peloton did not add any extra levels later in the year, and the top level remained 20,000).

Next, input how many minutes you’ve worked out for the year. If you don’t know, you can head to Peloton’s website to find out – via the challenge page for The Annual 2023. If you haven’t opted in, do that! On that page is a section that shows you exactly how many minutes you have worked out so far.

Using this information, you can now use the calculator below. After you’ve entered the number of minutes you’ve worked out so far, and selected the milestone you are working towards, just hit “Calculate”. A message will then show up telling you exactly how many minutes you need to work out per day, from now until the end of the year, to achieve that milestone by December 31st.

    To many people get obsessed with numbers and over train. Train smart.

    Do you know why the annual counter would stop counting meditations? I may add a 5 -10 minute meditation at the end of a workout and they don’t seem to count on my annual counter? They did until I hit 18,000 minutes.

  • Danielle Braunsma says:

    Mine definitely did keep counting.

  • Kelly says:

    Do the “just work out” time logged count to the annual challenge?

  • Steve Anderson says:

    Is it possible to keep earning minutes while on vacation? I have a few vacations planned this year and will be away from my bike. Can I substitute walk/run minutes while on vacation? If not, I will need to boost my minutes per day to cover for my lost days. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated as I work towards 15K minutes (stretch goal of 18K). Thanks!
