There had been concern from members whether Peloton’s servers would be up to the task with tens of thousands of riders on the class. Over the last few months, Peloton has seen several server crashes around popular events – including a server crash when Lizzo was live in studio, and again in October when BabyFace was in studio for an artist series. However, there were no widespread reports of crashes or server issues during Peloton’s Thanksgiving Day Turkey Burn classes this year.

Members were able to earn a special “Turkey Burn 2022” badge for taking either of the 2 live turkey burn classes, or the ones that dropped on demand as well. You can find the list of Peloton badges and how to earn them here.
