Peloton's Cody Rigsby Shares His Thoughts On Britney Spears

When the world shut down in March 2020, Peloton saw a boom in popularity as gyms and health clubs closed their doors. Its instructors also saw their popularity skyrocket and once such instructor was Cody Rigsby, who became known as the "King of Quarantine," as he got people through workouts at home every day as he pushed Peloton riders to be the best they could be under less-than-ideal circumstances. That popularity landed him on "Dancing With the Stars" for the 2021 season, where he's paired with professional dancer Cheryl Burke.

Like other Peloton instructors, Rigsby comes from the world of performance and dance, moving from his native North Carolina to New York to pursue his career and eventually dancing backup for musicians like Pitbull and Katy Perry. Then, Peloton came along seven years ago and Rigsby fit right in, according to Edge Media Network. When 2020 and COVID-19 arrived, Rigsby knew he had to give even more. As he told The Washington Post, "People hate working out. They want to be distracted. Let's be honest: I hate working out sometimes, too. So you want to be entertained. You want to forget that you're doing something that you don't like."

To that end, Rigsby does his best to make riders smile and sweat — always offering his unbridled opinion. And he often offers his opinion on Britney Spears, the embattled pop star who has been struggling to dissolve the conservatorship that has been ruling her personal and financial life since 2008.

Cody Rigsby is proud to support the Free Britney movement

If you've taken a Cody Rigsby Peloton ride, then you know exactly how he feels about Britney Spears, who as of this writing is close to having her conservatorship dissolved in court. Longtime Spears fans have formed a movement called "Free Britney" and Rigsby is proud to support them and his favorite pop star.

"I have always been obsessed with Britney Spears ever since I was probably 12 years old. I remember going to a middle school dance and seeing the 'Baby One More Time' video, and I just remember that being such a moment and being so captivated by it. After that I was just consumed with her," Rigsby told Edge Media Network.

In fact, Spears became a momentous first for the teenage Rigsby who couldn't get enough of her even at a young age.

"I loved all things Britney! Her concert was the first one I ever attended when I was 13 years old. To me, 2000 Britney is the best. No one can entertain like she did back then. There was just this raw energy that we were all captivated by. She always makes me feel so nostalgic, safe, and fierce," he said (via Edge Media Network). So there you have it! Rigsby's dedication to Spears doesn't just exist in the spin studio — he is a longtime Spears fan.
