So, I don’t think we’ve ever formally discussed fitness on The B Word. I honestly shy away from it because when a fat person discusses fitness typically people have things to say. Following accounts like Meg Boggs, has inspired me to lean into my desire to move my body at whatever fitness level I’m at.
I worked from home, even prior to COVID, so we’ve been searching for an at home option we could use to get some more movement in our days. My boyfriend and I searched high and low for a bike that fit our unique needs. We’re both very tall (He’s 6’9 and I’m 6’0), we needed something that could work for big and tall folks. We also needed something that was cost effective. I wanted something with classes because hi, I’m a fitness beginner.
When MYX Fitness popped into my emails asking to collaborate for a gifted bike….I lost it! This was EXACTLY what we were looking for. We were so excited to receive the bike and get going!
Our MYX Fitness bike was delivered within two weeks and the delivery was seamless. I got on the bike for my first ride and……nope, the seat wasn’t comfortable. I hadn’t been on a bike in years or to a spin class, I wasn’t expecting that. I wanted to share this because as a plus size person sometimes standard things dont work and that’s okay, we have options! We started researching wider, foam or gel padded seat replacements and they’re out there for under $50. We started using the bike with a towel in the mean time and we’ve been riding for a month with no issue. My butt had to get used to it and now I’m debating whether or not we need a new seat.

I really enjoy the guided classes. On MYX Fitness, they’re prerecorded but there are SO many we haven’t even worked through 5% of them within this month! There are yoga classes, floor weight classes, science bike tours, media, cycling classes….everything.
This MYX Fitness bike has been such a gift and both my boyfriend and I love it. I shared MYX Fitness with my social media audience and everyone lost it, wanting to know more! I’m totally with you all and I absolutely would recommend to anyone in the market. As soon as I saw The B Word community reaction, I emailed MYX Fitness like…..we need a discount code!
If you’re purchasing, use code: THEBWORD for $150 off and FREE SHIPPING (worth $250 alone!)
Full transparency, the bike was gifted but the thoughts are my own. I do not earn a commission off of any purchases, discount code is solely there to give my people a discount! ❤️
