  1. Log in to your Peloton account.
  2. Go to the Account Settings or App Membership tab on the Peloton website or mobile app or click here.
  3. Once you’re there, look for the section that allows you to manage your subscription.

Choosing the Pause Duration

Once you have chosen the pause option, you can choose the duration you want to pause Peloton membership. 

You can choose between 1,2, or 3 months. And the good thing is, if you need more time, you can extend the pause for another 1,2 or 3 months. 

Please select the duration that aligns with your needs. We recommend choosing right away 3 months long pause as you can always re-activate your Peloton subscription. 

Confirmation and Review of Membership Pause

After confirming the pause duration, you will receive a confirmation of your chosen pause period. Take a moment to review the details, including the start and the end date. 

If the information isn’t accurate, don’t hesitate to contact the Peloton support team. 

Understanding the Terms and Conditions

Before finalizing the pause, we recommend you read and understand the terms and conditions of pausing Peloton membership. These terms will include details about the membership classes, access to the community features and other limitations. 

Please remember that the pause period starts at the beginning of your next billing date. In other words, if you pause your Peloton subscription in the middle of the month, you can use it until the end of the current month.

How to Unpause/Resume Your Peloton Membership?

Whether the pause period is nearing its end or you want to unpause your Peloton membership, it’s time to consider whether you’re ready. Evaluate your circumstances, availability and readiness to resume your workouts. 

If you’re ready, go to the My Membership area or login into your subscription on your Bike, Tread or Row. 

Re-activating the Membership

Once in the membership area, click “Manage” and unpause the membership. Suppose your pause period is running to an end. You don’t have to do anything in that case, as your subscription will be re-activated automatically. 

We recommend ensuring that your payment information is up to date to avoid any interruptions in service.

Reasons why people pause Peloton membership? 

Temporary Unavailability of the Equipment

Temporary unavailability of Peloton equipment can be one of the reasons why people pause Peloton membership. Whether it’s equipment repair or maintenance, such situations can take time and pausing the membership for 1 month can be financially beneficial. 

Health or Medical Issues

Sometimes health-related concerns such as injuries or seasonal flu can come suddenly. In such cases, pausing your Peloton membership will allow you to prioritize your health without spending money on services you can’t use. 

It’s important to understand that recovering fully from an injury or illness is very important before coming back to the Peloton workouts. Always prioritize your health over intensive workouts. 

If you’re certain you’ve recovered but lack motivation, think about the health benefits of cycling: a stronger immune system and a healthier heart. And as a bonus, cycling allows you to indulge and eat more guilt-free!

Travel or Extended Absence

Whether it’s a planned vacation or work-related travel, pausing your membership is an excellent option. Consider pausing the subscription if you’re away for at least two weeks. 

Pausing your membership allows you to enjoy your time without worrying about paying for your Peloton subscription. 

Financial Constraints

Financial constraints can happen to all of us. Pausing your membership during challenging times allows you to manage your finances. It’s good to know that you can keep using your Peloton equipment without a subscription, so you don’t have to compromise on fitness. 

We recommend pausing or canceling your Peloton membership if you’re facing difficulties at work, economic uncertainty or other financial pressures. 


Knowing that you can pause Peloton membership without losing any data or history allows you to decide without too much thinking and unnecessary stress. 

Remember that even though the longest pause duration is 3 months, you can extend it for free for another 3 months. If, after 6 months, you still need to get ready to come back, we suggest canceling your Peloton membership. If you’ve decided to cancel Peloton membership but need help, we’ve covered you with our step-by-step guide. We’ll walk you through the cancellation process, no matter how you purchased the subscription.

Peloton’s flexibility and commitment to its members allow you to prioritize your well-being and decide freely when to cancel subscription, pause or resume your membership. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Can I Still Use the Peloton App While My Membership Is Paused?

You cant access Peloton’s on demand classes and live classes during your membership pause. However, without membership, you can still use your Peloton bike, tread or row in a “Just – Ride, Run or Row” feature. 

Will I Lose My Progress and Achievements During the Pause?

Actually, your progress, together with your achievements, will be recovered. Peloton will retain your username, personal records, completed challenges, Peloton leaderboard ranking and other Peloton content related data. You will be able to continue where you left off. 

Your hard work and legacy will be recognized by Peloton regardless of the length of the break. 

Can I Pause Peloton Membership Multiple Times?

Yes. The Peloton membership can be paused for up to 3 months. Suppose you need more time to come back. In that case, whether it’s due to injury or financial difficulties, you can extend the pause for another 3 months. After the pause period will be over, auto renewal will be enabled and you can start using the Peloton subscription again.
