Peloton Tread + Peloton Tread Studio
Peloton’s new $4,000 treadmill is worth every penny. Every detail has been streamlined to make treadmill running smoother and more enjoyable. Stream workouts on the connected 32-inch touchscreen. It won’t wobble or shake, even if you’re at a lung-busting clip; that’s thanks to its rock-solid, powder-coated carbon steel rails. You won’t find yourself bailing to either side of the belt when you finish a 60-second sprint at 12mph. There are handrail-mounted speed and incline dials on either side to make those transitions lightning fast. The belt won’t jerk or stick underfoot either. There are 59 slats that roll on ball bearings for a joint-friendly “ride” every time. Sleek lines and an upholstered storage unit at the base of the treadmill turn this machine into a statement piece, not a hunk of metal you’re forced to hide in the garage.
It’s available for pre-order now with a fall 2018 rollout.
If you’re based in New York City, Peloton just opened its second studio location—you guessed it, for treadmill-based classes. The spacious studio, Peloton Tread, offers total-body fitness classes comprising bootcamp and circuit training-style routines, as well as running and walking sessions all led by trainers. Arguably the best part? There’s loads of space, so your treadmill isn’t on top of your classmate’s, and you’re not bumping into anyone if you’re doing floor work. You get that competitive edge, due to the class setting and the optional leader board, but you’re not cramped and stealing glimpses at your neighbor’s screen. You’re able to stay in your own headspace and focus on your workout.
