(Pocket-lint) - There are so many good things about Peloton, it's no wonder it has such a huge community, but one of the best things about it in our experience, is the music in the workouts. 

Countless times we have popped our bottom on the saddle, hit start on the huge display in front and a belter of a track has pumped through the built-in speakers. Whether it's Spice Girls or Mary J Blige, the playlists are second to none, managing to motivate you to keep your legs moving, even on the days that doing a workout was the last thing you fancied. 

It's possible to see a playlist for a workout before you start it to see if the music is a little bit of you, and during any workout, each track will appear on the left side of the screen as it plays. If you tap the heart next to a track when it's playing, Peloton saves your music to a dedicated place, which you can then view from your profile screen.

You can also connect Apple Music and Spotify though, which will then create a playlist within the Apple Music and Spotify apps respectively, so you can bop along to the tracks while cleaning your house or doing the school run, and not just when riding or running.

Here's how to connect Apple Music and Spotify to Peloton to view your saved music from your Peloton workouts.
