New “Pace Targets Hit” Feature for Peloton Row Classes

Peloton just introduced an exciting feature for Peloton Row owners – it’s called “Pace Target Distribution.” This cool tool shows you how well you’re keeping up with the pace goals in your workouts.

It’s kind of like what you see on the Bike and Tread devices. They give you stats on how much time you spent hitting those cadence and resistance goals in your class.

If you haven’t tried a Peloton rowing class yet (now available on the app for App+ and All-Access members), it’s a bit different from cycling and running classes. In rowing, the instructor won’t give you specific numbers for pace or speed. Instead, they’ll use terms like “easy,” “moderate,” “challenging,” and “max” to guide you.

You won’t hear them say, “Row at 24 strokes per minute.” They’ll say something like, “Go for an easy pace” or “Give it your max effort.” It’s up to you to choose your own “Personal pace target” based on your fitness level, matching those target zones to a pace range that works best for you.

Now, thanks to the new pace target distribution graph, you get a clear visual report after your class. It’s right there at the lower left corner of your screen, showing how well you followed the instructor’s guidance by keeping your strokes within the target zone.

For a more in-depth look, you can find a detailed version of this graph in your workout history. If your pace falls below the highlighted zones, it means you rowed slower than what the instructor suggested. If your pace is above those zones, it means you rowed faster.

These fresh stats give you an overall picture of how closely you matched the instructor’s pace cues during your class.


In the detailed workout history graph, you’ll also find info about the difficulty level you selected for that class. Plus, there’s a “Pace Targets Hit” percentage to show how well you did in the workout.

But here’s the catch: you can only see these stats on the Row machine itself. They don’t appear in the Peloton app or website for completed workouts.

For those new to the Peloton Row, you can choose a difficulty level from 1 to 6. As you progress in fitness and technique, you might move up a level after a few weeks or months.

The difficulty level you pick affects the pace range for each target zone. Remember, “pace” measures how long it takes to row 500 meters, so lower numbers mean faster and more challenging workouts. Level 1 is the easiest, while Level 6 is the toughest. For instance, in Level 1, the “easy” range might be 4:30-4:00 pace, while in Level 2, it’s slightly faster and more demanding at 3:50-3:20 pace.

When you’re just starting to row on the Peloton Row, there’s a handy 10-minute class to help you get familiar with personal pace targets. It’s called “Intro to Personal Pace Targets,” taught by Matt Wilpers on November 10, 2022. This class is meant to assist you in figuring out your starting level. With time, as your form and strength improve, you can decide to bump up your pace levels.


After that, you have the option to participate in the full 3-week “Perfect Your Pace Targets” rowing program. You’ll set your target zones in the first class and then, after completing the program, you’ll adjust them based on what you’ve learned.

If you haven’t seen this new feature on your Peloton Row yet, make sure you’ve updated your software to the latest version.
