Travis Barker Becomes First Musician to Perform During a Peloton Class

He just can't wait / To keep the beat for your first workout date

Despite only ever having heard Peloton talked about by influencers, celebrities and Sex and the City characters' obituaries on And Just Like That..., I'm still bravely willing to believe that it exists. Travis Barker is testing me, though — the blink-182 drummer has now become the first musician to perform during a class on the fitness platform.

As initially reported exclusively by Billboard, Barker's performance comes as part of the latest instalment in the company's Artist Series, spotlighting blink-182 in the wake of the classic trio's new album, ONE MORE TIME... (the synergistic ellipses between that title and the SATC reboot's... should this have been predicted long ago?).

The drummer plays along during a 10-minute shadowboxing class taught by Peloton's Kendall Toole. Available on the Peloton app starting today, the blink-182 Artist Series also includes a 30-minute cycling class.

"Being the first musician ever to perform in a Peloton class has been an epic experience," Barker shared in a statement. "Knowing that millions of people across the globe will watch me and Kendall do our thing is super exciting."

Toole added, "Travis is someone who I have grown up listening to who also shares my passion for movement and music so collaborating together was natural and effortless."

For the low price of between $16.99 and $30 per month (depending on which kind of membership you opt for), you too can become one of those millions of normal people around the globe who work out using the Peloton app. (It's also worth noting that you can get a 30-day free trial if your interest doesn't go far beyond wanting to experience the blink-182 Artist Series.)

When he hasn't been busy touring or defending how the new blink album was mixed, Barker and wife Kourtney Kardashian also recently welcomed their first child together. The musician celebrated as only Travis Barker could: by playing along to his newborn's heartbeat on a practice pad at the hospital, which you can watch a clip of below, along with an ad for Peloton's blink-182 Artist Series.
