The first rule of quarantine is simple. If you want to exercise and can't leave your house, buy a Peloton.
With the NBA, NHL and MLB all paused or delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Bay Area's best have been finding ways to keep busy.
For Sharks captain Logan Couture, that hasn't amounted to a lot of physical activity during the shelter-in-place order.
During an NHL Zoom conference call with Marc-Andre Fleury, Anze Kopitar and Ryan Getzlaf, the Sharks forward said he and his girlfriend are hunkered down in the South Bay and have been reading and binge-watching shows. But he's working to change that, so he ordered a Peloton exercise bike which is slated to arrive Saturday.
“Ordered it 10 days ago and it’s supposed to arrive Saturday," Couture said. “I’m looking forward to that.”
Couture missed the last game the Sharks played due to a concussion from taking a puck to the jaw, but he says he's feeling better now.
He hopes the Peloton can help get his fitness back to where he would like it to be.
“I haven’t been able to do much in terms of exercise," Couture said. “I’ve tried to stay home as much as possible — working on body-weight stuff — I’m not in the best shape.”
Hopefully, the Peloton arrived on time.
