Car Accident Comeback

Hi, my name is Courtney and I was in a car accident this past year. I was rear ended, which caused severe back and neck injuries. The accident happened a month before my wedding, while I was a full time grad student and working full time. The stress it caused over this past year has been devastating.


The accident caused multiple forms of medical treatment, which led to strict exercise restrictions that caused extreme weight gain. As someone with a history of depression and anxiety, my mental health took a turn for the worst. I have never weighed this much and do not like the way I look at all. Luckily, I have an amazing husband who has stood by me during the difficult year and did whatever he could to help me feel comfortable. Now that my restrictions have been lifted, I walk regularly, wear a Fitbit and track my calories, but I still can’t lose the weight I gained. My back and neck will never be the same, and I believe a Peloton bike could help me lose the weight comfortably. This year has been so stressful and now due to the pandemic, I am not comfortable going to a public gym. I truly believe that Peloton can help me reach this goal, which will make me physically and emotionally strong, and confident with how I look. I often start crying because I do not like the way I look, it’s emotionally draining. I want to lose the weight I have gained due to all the restrictions due to my accident and want to feel happy with myself again.


I have always thought the Peloton bike was a great in-home exercise machine and I would be eternally grateful to have one in my home to help me reach my goal of getting back to a healthier version of who I used to be. Thank you.
