Woman Catches Her Boyfriend Cheating After Syncing Up Her Fitbit With His

There’s been a lot of online discussion about the Peloton ad that went viral because it feels like a hostage video. Discussion about the ad has gone in all sorts of directions, touching on fitness culture, sexism, and what exactly would happen to the actress who got unfortunately famous for her eyebrow performance. Some people even admitted to getting their spouses the Peloton as a gift themselves, claiming the receiver loved it.

It’s true that there are “fitness couples” out there who love monitoring their bodies together. NFL correspondent Jane Slater admitted she was one of those couples in response to a story about a happy Peloton customer, but their shared interest did not have a happy ending.

“An Ex Boyfriend once got me a Fitbit for Christmas,” she wrote. “I loved it. We synched up, motivated each other… didn’t hate it until he was unaccounted for at 4 am and his physical activity levels were spiking on the app, wish the story wasn’t real.”

She added, “Spoiler alert: he was not enrolled in an OrangeTheory class at 4 am.”

Damn. That Fitbit thing is like a digital leash. Well, better to know, I guess, though Slater had a couple of wild stories to share about horrible oblivious boyfriends:

But she has a sense of humor about the whole thing:

Everyone else has a sense of humor about it, too. There were a lot of jokes about how short this physical activity spike probably was:

Some folks didn’t get the implications here, so just in case you need it spelled out:

And incredibly, Slater’s story is hardly the only of its kind. Apparently, plenty of men get caught cheating as a result of technology!

Tracking every movement your honey makes is a bad move, but sometimes the fitness gods try to protect their own. Slater might have been working towards body goals with her old boyfriend, but unfortunately, it was not relationship goals. Now she’s free to be fit with someone who deserves her bits.
