If you haven’t already heard, the peloton gives away a century T-shirt after 100 completed sessions in strength, cycling, running, or any other category.
Today I will explain everything there is to know about how to earn and get the peloton century club shirt.
In general, to get the peloton century club shirt you need to complete 100 workouts from one category, however, this only applies to all-access members. The categories are all classes from the peloton app (strength, ride, running, yoga) however, they cannot be combined.
This means you need to complete 100 sessions from one category. If you do 20 sessions in 5 different categories this won’t count.
Does Peloton Still Do Century Shirts?
In general, the peloton still sends century shirts to everyone who completed 100 classes.
Keep in mind that peloton programs do not count into completed classes.
So even if you do strength or programs that have multiple classes, it won’t add to your milestones.
How does it work?
The moment you reach your 100th class, technically, you should receive a congratulations email from the peloton team with all the details on how to order your shirt.
In this email, you can submit your request for the shirt. You can also choose your size.
However, for me, that wasn’t the case. I did not receive any confirmation email, despite doing over 100 cycling rides.
I spoke with a few people from the peloton community who reported that they also haven’t received a confirmation email.
If you haven’t received the email, you can go to the peloton website and reach out to online support (hint: it worked).
How many peloton century shirts can I get?
In a nutshell.
- You can only get one peloton century shirt per user.
- Some other classes like peloton scenic rides do not count into the milestones.
- Even if you complete 100 sessions from each category, you will only be eligible for one piece.
- To get more shirts, you need to create a new profile and complete another 100 classes.
- If you completed more than 100 workouts (e.g. 1000 peloton rides or classes), you only get a century shirt for the first 100. There are no extra shirts if you go beyond that.
Keep in mind that if you’re using the all-access membership, each profile you create can receive one piece.
However, if you’re using the peloton digital membership, you cannot get a peloton century shirt.
Peloton century shirt is free
Yes, there is no extra charge for the century shirt, as well as for shipping.
The purpose of the peloton century shirt is to provide encouragement and help you keep going.
For me, this is an excellent marketing idea to keep us (their members) using the bikes (nice work, by the way).
It will be shipped to you after you place the order.
How to check how many sessions I’ve done on Peloton?
You can check how many sessions you did on your peloton in the peloton app.
- Go to the profile section and select the achievements tab.
- In the achievements tab, you will see exactly how many milestones you’ve completed for each category.
Here is the breakdown of the milestones.
|Century Workout (100th)|
In case you’re wondering, there are 28 milestones in the peloton with the last one being 5000 sessions.
This means if you do one session per day will take you around 13.5 years.
How do I get my century shirt from Peloton?
Peloton has a brilliant way to motivate people, especially at the beginning of their journey.
They send a peloton century t-shirt to everyone who completes the big 100 classes from one specific type of class.
Here is the step-by-step guide on how to earn your Peloton century trophy:
1. Choose your favorite class
Start by choosing the type of class you enjoy the most. Some of the most effective peloton classes for weight loss include strength, cardio, boot camps, and rides.
Pick one category and stick to it. This will allow you to be more consistent and increase your chances not only to receive your t-shirt but also to get better results.
(I think that is way more important than a t-shirt.)
2. Do separate warm-ups
You can “speed” up the process by doing additional warm-ups and cooldowns. This is only a 5-10 minute class but will count into your milestones.
We often neglect the warmup or cooldown, unless it’s already included in the class. Doing separate warm-ups not only will prevent injury, but also add more classes to your schedule.
3. Start from easier classes
If you start from something easier like peloton recovery classes or 20-minute rides, compared to the hardest classes, you will be more likely to get to your first 100.
Most of the 20-minute peloton rides are effective, as long as you do them regularly over a long period of time.
3. Do shorter rides
Stay consistent and think about doing small and often. This means choosing shorter rides and jumping on your bike almost every day.
For example, I got a much better result from doing three 30-minute peloton climb rides rather than one 90-minute endurance class. The time is the same. The physiological adaptations are different.
4. Train daily, maybe even twice a day
It’s ok to do peloton twice a day, as long as you choose shorter rides. Doing one long workout is great.
However, doing two shorter sessions instead can give you better results and double the sessions you’ve already completed.
Once you complete the 100 sessions, check your email. In the email, you should receive a code and a link that you can use in the peloton boutique.
Peloton century shirt fit
In general, the peloton century shirt fits comfortably. The shirt comes in black color with the white peloton logo on the front.
It is tagless and made of stretchy and soft cotton material. It can be washed with regular clothes in the washing machine and it can be dried in the dryer.
Peloton century shirts are true to size.
In general, the peloton shirt doesn’t run small and it’s true to size. The shirt is available in all sizes, for men from S to XXL, and for women from XS to 3X.
It is made of 90% cotton material and 10% viscose, which allows it to stretch and fit comfortably.

What does Peloton Century Shirt look like?
In general, the peloton century shirt looks like a regular black t-shirt, with a white peloton logo at the front and a small peloton symbol on the back.
See the picture below.
It also has two. It has also a small engraved “100” sign on the left arm and a century on the right side.
To be honest, the century shirt doesn’t look somehow special but the idea that you cannot buy it and only earn it makes a huge difference. For me, it increases the perceived value and encourages me to do more work.
You cannot buy a peloton century shirt
Unfortunately, you cannot buy a peloton century shirt.
The whole idea is that this shirt is only available for people who completed the 100th workout.
That is the only shirt from the peloton apparel that isn’t sold, so if you want to get it you need to earn it.
I think this is cool and unique because the fact that the century shirt isn’t for sale makes it more special. It’s like getting a t-shirt from Hardrock Cafe in Honolulu or Quicksilver shop in Australia.
You can only get it when you have been there.
- Getting a century shirt from the peloton is a great achievement and definitively motivating factor.
- Even if done with one session per day, the goal of doing 100 workouts not only leads to forming a positive habit but also contributes to the results.
- Plus, regardless if you’re getting started or you’ve been training for a while, everyone will appreciate a good quality t-shirt that reminds you how much work you’ve put in.
