What kind of bike do you currently ride?

If money is an issue (you didn't say it was) you could get a trainer for your bike and hammer away on that. There are tons of websites with training advice.

Peloton is selling an experience with a monthly fee which is attractive for a lot of people. You're in luck in the sense that the entire bike industry is now hopping on to the indoor riding train and there are quite a few options now, but I don't think any of them sell the same group lessons or whatever peloton sells.

Can you give more detail as to what you're looking for?

Peloton keeps getting sued over music licensing fees, I'll bet their monthly subscription will increase because of this.

What kind of ideas do you need? Curious question.

I have one and use it for training indoors.

You mostly doing PZ classes, or a mix of that, HIIT, and Tabata?

Trying to figure out what is most applicable to MTB, and I think one has to do some high intensity stuff.

Side note, Robin scares me.

I have the Yahoo Kicker and pretty sure it works the same. you load zwift app on your smart phone/ipad, the zwift app communicates to the bluetooth trainer.
Now you need to stream your phone to a smart TV, lots of ways to do this. I have a Vizio TV with appletv built in, it's really slick, and the iphone casts to the TV with no issues, or you can buy the apple TV dongle.

I have a hard tail mtb and run it on an Elite Direto trainer and it works good (recently started). I ride with a bunch of guys who use indoor training to supplement MTB (most are XC racers, typically Cat 1 or 2). I've found some MTB workout programs on Zwift and I'll be running those on days I can't ride. Did 12 miles and 1100 feet climbing the other day and felt great after the "ride". I've ridden the peleton and it's more "spin class" oriented but the workout should do almost the same. If you shop around there are plenty of non peleton trainers out there as spin bikes you can use, or you can get a smart trainer and a cheap bike to use it on. I Happen to have the hard tail but if I didn't I'd still shop for a cheap road bike to use, it seems to be awesome. Oh, and 14.99/mo fee for Zwift which is less than the peleton one.
