Halloween 2023 has come and gone, and we’ve seen it all: the good, the bad, and the very tight pants worn by Matty Maggiacomo. Brittany Allen had a hand in the antics, we heard multiple versions of “I Put a Spell on You,” and our favorite instructors clearly had as good a time as we did sweating in costume.
Shall we discuss this?
Traditional Halloween Scares
Becs Gentry has been half a scary clown before, but that doesn’t make it any less messed up to see it again. Highlight of her 30 min Halloween Run for me? Wednesday’s cello solo.
In another Brittany Allen original, Leeanne Hainsby answered the age-old question of what she’d look like as a non-blonde! The most sparkly Wednesday Addams joined us for a 30 min Halloween Ride which included Halloween classic music- and a little 90s hip hop!
Finally, lest we worry zombies have been neglected this Halloween, Andy Speer not only was one for his 60 min Halloween Total Strength, he trained his students to fight them…. And dropped a cover of “Zombie” into the playlist for good measure.
Less is More
Another devil showed up not just in class, but at the club! Jon Hosking went less elaborate, but kept his 30 min At The Club: Halloween class moving to some classic Halloween favorites (including “Ghostbusters,” probably on behalf of Sam Yo.)
Could it really have been Hannah Corbin’s very first Peloton Halloween? Her 30 min Halloween Ride started strong (with the Time Warp, of course!) and took her riders on a fast-paced trip over hills and through some flat sprints.
Bradley Rose- or Dr. Indiana Jones- thrilled his class members with a John Williams-heavy film-themed 20 min Halloween Ride that took them everywhere from outer space all the way back (to the future, of course.)
Another Day of the Dead lover? Ally Love (who is, by the way, an alien… according to Matty.) Her 30 min Halloween Ride featured multiple “monster” songs, as well as an appearance on the playlist by the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga.
Who Put in the Most Work?
Never accuse Camila Ramón of failing to commit, even to an odd concept. Praying mantis Camila wore so much neon green that she lit up the room in her 30 min Halloween Ride.
Matty turned up for his out-of-this-world 30 min Halloween Walk as a light-up, prosthetic-covered “gaylien”. Who knew his arms would look more jacked than usual covered in yellow paint? (And who knew that Celine Dion is known across the universe, or that Brittany Allen custom-designs alien jumpsuits?)
Finally, “happy Halloween boy” Sam Yo was the subject of much debate in my household with his 30 min Disney Villains Ride– which villain would he be? We were divided between Jafar and Scar (with one outlier vote for Claude Frollo), but he managed to surprise us all, and turned up as Hades!
It’s been a great Halloween, and we haven’t even hit the holiday yet. What was your favorite costume, and what are you going to be?
