I am pumped.  Peloton just announced the “Peloton Tread” – which they describe as a ‘private fitness studio in your own home both on and off the treadmill.’  Sounds pretty sweet.  I already love the Peloton App and I think it just got even better.

Like the Peloton bike, the Peloton Tread will have a variety of live and on-demand style classes including:

  • Total Body training, including circuit and bootcamp-style classes both on and off the treadmill.
  • Run classes (of course…its a treadmill) designed for a variety of skill and experience levels.
  • Floor workouts including a mix of strength, toning and stretching to complement your fitness routine.
  • Walk classes for the low-impact cardio exercise crowd.

The classes will cater to different music tastes, skill and will vary in length from 10 minutes to 60 minutes.  I see the “off the bike” classes as an enhancement to the already awesome “Beyond the Ride” classes that Peloton offers.   As I mentioned in my earlier Peloton App review, those classes include things like: Cardio, Strength, Stretch, Toning and Yoga.

To enjoy the off the bike workouts  you will definitely need to get some weights and an exercise mat.  We have both light dumbbells and a heavier set of Bowflex adjustable dumbbells.   They both serve a good purpose.

All the bells and whistles about the Peloton Tread are on the One Peloton home page but I will list a few of the cool ones here:

  • 32″ HD, fully adjustable touchscreen.  Why adjustable?  To make visibility easier when off the bike.
  • Soundbar.  For cranking it to 11.
  • Shock Absorbers for the ultimate low-impact running (this means its easy on the knees).
  • Speed & Incline knobs just like the treadmills in the gym.
  • 10-15 live classes a day with an online archive of on-demand classes.

COST

The treadmill costs $4,000 + delivery and a $39 month subscription fee.  Will I buy it?  Definitely not – its too expensive for my blood BUT the good news is that you can access all of the Peloton App classes for $12.99/month.

The only question I have is whether or not I will buy an inexpensive treadmill and create a Peloton Alternative like I did with the bike (I have the room, right?)  or just access the off-the-treadmill, total body workouts.  Only time will tell and I will add a Peloton Tread review when that time comes!
