During 2020, the number of people who turned to working out at home skyrocketed. During this time community gyms were forced to close their doors, public transportation was halted, and taking advantage of a workout program that could be done from the comfort of our own home took storm. We jumped on that bandwagon as well and purchased a Peloton Bike+. I am so happy we did and am here to share with you all things Peloton in case you have been on the fence about making your own purchase.
The Peloton Mission.Peloton uses technology and design to connect the world through fitness, empowering people to be the best version of themselves anywhere, anytime.
Where did it all begin?
Peloton began in 2012 when former Barnes & Noble e-commerce executive John Foley noticed that he found much more enjoyment from instructor-led workouts rather than his self-led trips a brick and mortar gym. From there, through seed money, a Kickstarter and a need to be fulfilled for millions across the nation, Peloton came to life. The first studio opened in the Chelsea District in Manhattan and the company has experienced exponential growth every since.
What makes Peloton different?
Who would imagine that from your own living room or garage you could challenge people just like yourself on a live leaderboard? At Peloton, they have created a software that lets you dive into engaging classes (live and on-demand), with beautifully designed hardware, empowering instructors and a community that invites everyone to come be the best version of themselves through the power of sweat. Are you looking for a Disney themed ride, a 20 minute cardio dance session to Beyonce, or a mood ride because you’re feeling blue? They have it all!
