Jess Sims Returning to ESPN College GameDay This Fall – Will Tape Saturday 60 Classes with Members on Mondays

Peloton instructor Jess Sims is returning to ESPN’S College GameDay Broadcasting team for the 2023-2024 football season. Jess debuted in her first season with College GameDay last year and is returning, with the first game taking place on Saturday, September 2 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

For those unfamiliar, College GameDay is an ESPN pregame football show that airs live on Saturday mornings throughout the college football season. The broadcasting team travels to a new campus each weekend and covers games happening across the country.

Of course, this means that Jess’ signature Tread Bootcamp series – Saturday 60 – which typically takes place live at noon Eastern on Saturdays, will transition to a pre-recorded on-demand drop (likely labeled on the upcoming schedule as a premiere class) for the duration of the college football season.

However, since Saturday 60 classes have now been opened up to in-person participation from members, Peloton will actually tape the classes in the studio every Monday. The first class is already on the studio booking site for September 11 at 12:00pm ET – but it is labeled with the note “pre-record,” indicating that the class will not air live.

As of publishing time there are also classes scheduled for September 18 and October 2, both taking place at 2:00pm ET. All classes are currently full.

Jess recently shared a video to Instagram with additional information:

The Saturday 60 classes will likely be added to the studio booking site six weeks in advance along with other classes. They will be filmed on Monday and then become available in the on-demand library – and likely premiere on the encore schedule – at the standard Saturday 60 time slot of 12:00pm ET on Saturdays.
