How to High Five on Peloton
To send a high five on Peloton, you’ll want to be on the “HERE NOW” tab of the leaderboard. Look for the person you want to high five and tap their profile image. You’ll see a hand icon pop up, which means you’ve successfully sent a high five!
Accessing the Leaderboard:
If you’re in a class but can’t see the leaderboard, it’s probably hidden. Don’t worry, it’s easy to bring it back! Just click the small icon on the top right of the screen, and voilà, the leaderboard reappears.
Hiding the Leaderboard:
Feel like the leaderboard is distracting? You can hide it anytime by pressing the arrow pointing right on the leaderboard. This tucks it neatly off your screen.
High Fiving in Live Classes:
In a live class, there’s just one active leaderboard. Use the touchscreen to scroll through it, and tap a profile picture to send a high five to that rider or runner.
Navigating the Leaderboard in On-Demand Classes:
In on-demand classes, you’ll find two tabs on the leaderboard: ALL TIME and HERE NOW.
- ALL TIME: This includes everyone who’s ever taken the class, whether live or on-demand.
- HERE NOW: This is your go-to for high fiving people currently in the class. In session-based on-demand classes, this leaderboard feels like a live competition.
Understanding the Progress Bar:
Joined an on-demand class without a session start? The HERE NOW tab will show a white progress bar around each user’s profile. This bar tells you how much of their ride they have left. It’s super helpful for comparing your performance to others. Remember, someone nearly done with their ride will probably have a higher output and leaderboard ranking than someone who just started.

What Happens When You High Five Someone
Whenever you high five another rider on Peloton, they get a notification in their FEED. This is just a simple alert letting them know you’ve high fived them.
You can find the FEED on the left side of your screen. It’s not just for notifications you send; it also shows you all the high fives you receive during a ride!
Like the leaderboard, you can hide the FEED. This is especially useful during rides with lots of people, where high fives might come in non-stop. Too many notifications can be distracting, so feel free to hide the FEED if you need to.
Got a high five? You can easily high five back without searching the leaderboard. Just use the FEED on the left of your screen. It’s a quick and easy way to return the gesture.
Here’s something important to remember: after your ride ends, all high fives disappear. They aren’t saved or logged anywhere. So, those high fives are just for the moment, adding a bit of fun and community spirit to your ride!
When To High Five
- Starting the Class with Enthusiasm: At the very start of the class, send out high fives! Everyone’s just shown up, ready to tackle the workout. This is a perfect moment to spread some cheer and get everyone excited.
- Mid-Class Motivation: During the class, high five the people just ahead of you or just behind you on the leaderboard. It’s a friendly way to fuel a bit of competition and keep spirits high.
- Celebrating the Finish: At the end of the class, it’s high five time again! Applaud everyone for their effort and hard work. A high five after a tough workout can feel really rewarding.
High Five Whenever You Want:
Really, you can high five any time you feel like it. The times mentioned above are just particularly great moments to do so.
Just remember, don’t bombard the same person with high fives repeatedly; it can be a bit much. Use common sense and basic high five etiquette, and you’ll be all set.
Who Can High Five
In live Peloton classes, “active” means everyone who appears on the leaderboard. This includes all participants, and yes, even Peloton instructors can join in the fun! Imagine receiving a high five from an instructor – it’s definitely a motivating moment. For instance, there are times when instructors like Emma Lovewell might send a high five to a rider during the class.
High Fiving in On-Demand Classes:
For on-demand classes, the rules are a bit different. You can high five only those users who are listed in the “HERE NOW” section of the leaderboard. These are the people who are actively participating in the class at the same time as you.
Instructors in On-Demand Classes:
In on-demand classes, instructors aren’t considered “active” in the same way as in live classes. This means you won’t be receiving or giving high fives to instructors in these sessions.
So, whether you’re in a live or on-demand class, keep an eye on who’s active and spread the high five love around! It’s a great way to stay connected and motivated throughout your Peloton experience. 🚴♀️🖐️🚴♂️
How to get more high fives
If you’re eager to rack up more high fives on Peloton, here’s the secret: it’s all about your public profile. Here are some tips to make your profile high-five-friendly:
1. Complete Your Public Profile:
Make sure your Peloton Public Profile is fully filled out. Include details like your age, gender, city, a unique hashtag, and don’t forget a profile picture. These elements encourage more interaction, leading to more high fives!
2. Visibility on the Leaderboard:
Once you’ve updated your profile, these details will show up on the leaderboard during your next ride. This visibility increases your chances of getting high fives.
3. Connect Over Commonalities:
Riders often high five others from their city or those using the same hashtag. It’s a way of finding and connecting with people who share something in common with you.
Updating Your Profile:
To update your Peloton Public Profile, tap your name at the bottom left of the screen, then select “Profile Info.” Fill in the fields under the Public Profile section.
Remember, a well-crafted profile can be your ticket to becoming a high-five magnet in the Peloton community. So go ahead, spruce up that profile, and get ready for a flurry of high fives on your next ride! 🚴♂️🖐️🚴♀️✨
Conclusion: High Fiving on Peloton – A Fun Way to Stay Connected
Peloton isn’t just about getting a great workout; it’s also about the joy of interacting with others. One of the coolest ways to do this is by giving and receiving high fives during your classes.
How to Send a High Five: It’s super easy! Just tap on someone’s profile image on the leaderboard. If they’re actively participating in the same class, they’ll see a high five notification pop up in their FEED on the left side of the touchscreen.
If you’re in a live class, keep an eye out for high fives from your Peloton instructors. They’re known to send them out during class, adding an extra layer of excitement to your workout.
I personally find high fives to be a really fun way to stay engaged and motivated. They bring a sense of community and encouragement to each class. But what about you?
