While the fitness platform Peloton’s appeal is largely because of its vast range of fiery workouts, star instructors, and high-fiving community, members also love it for its playlists. You can hear all types of music genres during an exercise sesh, but arguably one of the most fun is the early-2000s themed Peloton classes.

Mixed in with the standard Peloton workouts that focus on training goals like endurance, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), cardio are classes that have music themes. So, for example, you can choose to sweat through a 90s-themed run, a cycling class set to hip hop tracks, or a country-themed strength training session. If you’re craving some nostalgia, Peloton has a wide selection of workouts — of all types, from yoga to HIIT — with 2000s playlists. And yes, that means you can expect to hear the most iconic songs of the decade (and some deep cuts too) as you sweat. Think hits by Britney Spears, Outkast, Lady Gaga, and so many more.

If you want to queue up some 2000s-themed Peloton classes for a throwback-style sweat, here are 10 to fit into your workout routine.


30-Minute Backstreet Boys Ride

Peloton cycling devotees are familiar with instructor Cody Rigsby’s regular pop-themed workouts (he’s often professing his love for Britney Spears). To ride your spin bike while channeling the era of boy bands, strap in for his 30-minute Backstreet Boys ride. The only game it’ll play with your heart is via a solid dose of cardio.


30-Minute Britney Spears Run

If you ever find yourself in need of some motivation for your treadmill workouts, look no further than Becs Gentry’s 30-minute Britney Spears run. The Peloton instructor goes all-out for this one: She guides you through the interval-based treadmill workout while wearing a “...Baby One More Time” outfit, gray cardigan and all.


30-Minute 2000s Yoga Flow

Peloton yoga instructor Aditi Shah has created a vinyasa flow that you’ll be tempted to dance through. This 30-minute session takes you through traditional poses set to early-2000s classics by Outkast, D’Angelo, and Amy Winehouse.


20-Minute 2000s Walk

Let’s be honest: It can feel dull to do a walking workout on a treadmill. But Peloton instructor Olivia Amato’s 20-minute 2000s walk will get your blood flowing and heart pumping as you jam out to... wait for it... Smash Mouth, Alanis Morissette, and other classics from the decade that’ll take you right back to the era of low-rise jeans.


20-Minute Pop HIIT Cardio

If Nelly Furtado’s old-school hit “Maneater” doesn’t motivate you to sweat, what will? Adrian Williamsquick-hitting cardio workout — which doesn’t require any equipment, BTW — is set to early-2000s hits you probably grooved to at your homecoming dance. And yes, you’ll hear “My Humps” by Black Eyed Peas.


30-Minute J.Lo Run

With a 30-minute treadmill workout, Peloton instructor Rebecca Kennedy plays songs by J.Lo and only J.Lo — all of which will help you channel the iconic pop singer as you slay those miles.


30-Minute Lil Wayne Full-Body Strength

Jess Sims takes you from the late-90s to the 2000s with her intense Lil Wayne-themed strength training workout. You’ll be pumping weights and working your entire body as you belt out “6 Foot 7 Foot,” and you’ll be left feeling like a sweaty badass.


30-Minute Outkast Ride

One fun artist series Peloton has done is its Outkast collection. Sweat through this cycling workout, led by instructor Denis Morton, to hear staples of the 2000s: “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Ms. Jackson,” and “Hey Ya,” for starters.


30-Minute Y2K Fun Run

Making an outdoor run Y2K-themed — with #TBT songs by Good Charlotte and Weezer, for example — is a sure-fire way to make it 10 times more tolerable. Peloton instructor Andy Speer does just that with this half-hour guided run.


45-Minute 2000s Bootcamp

Peloton’s tread bootcamp classes, which are fast-paced workouts where you switch between running and strength training, always bring the burn — but doing one that’s set to 2000s music can help power you through. This one by Chase Tucker may be really challenging, but hearing classics by Ashanti, Shaggy, and G-Unit will undoubtedly bring the pep to your step.
