But Alex isn’t just about high-profile partnerships. Back in 2022, he became a Puma global ambassador, but he didn’t just stop at wearing the brand. He teamed up with Puma to invest in his foundation, Do Better, which is all about uplifting marginalized communities. Talk about making moves and making a difference!

Although his exact salary isn’t disclosed, top Peloton instructors are known to pull in six-figure salaries, and you can bet Alex is right up there.

Besides earning money from the fitness world, he also rakes in thousands of dollars as an author, having released his book, Activate Your Greatness in 2023.

3) Kendall Toole: $3 Million

This former Peloton superstar started with the company in 2019. Kendall Toole isn’t just any instructor; she brings fire and motivation to every class, earning between $500 and $750 per session.

But hold on, there’s more. Kendall’s influence stretches far beyond the Peloton bike. With almost a million followers on Instagram, she’s on the verge of becoming the most followed instructor. She earns between $2,292 and $3,820 for each sponsored post.

2) Cody Rigsby: $5 million

Cody is the highest-paid Peloton instructor. With 1.2 million Instagram followers, he boasts the largest social media following of any Peloton instructor. Thanks to his massive online presence, he can pull in about $20,000 per sponsored Instagram post. Yes, you read that right—$20,000 for a single post!

Cody’s income sources are as impressive as his dance moves. In 2021, he participated in Dancing With the Stars, making it to the finale with his partner Cheryl Burke.

But Cody’s earnings don’t stop there. He’s got brand deals with some of the biggest names out there—Gatorade, Chobani, Capital One, Invisalign, Adidas, Pure Leaf, Whole Foods, Primal Kitchen, Therabody, and Degree.

1) Robin Arzón: $10 million

The richest peloton instructor to date, Robin is nothing short of a powerhouse, and her income sources are as impressive as her high-energy classes. With a personality that thrives on vision boards and a Type A drive, she has built an empire of earnings that stretches far beyond her role as an instructor.

As Peloton’s Vice President of Fitness Programming, Robin earns a hefty salary. This executive role not only cements her influence in the company but also brings in a significant chunk of her income. She’s a senior instructor like Cody, which means her pay from teaching classes alone is substantial.

But Robin doesn’t stop at Peloton. She’s also a prolific author and her book ‘Strong Mama’ has become a bestseller. Her focus on motherhood has expanded her brand, resulting in deals with Pottery Barn Kids and the development of specialized prenatal and postpartum workouts.
