Peloton has officially announced that popular Bike instructor Jess King will be bringing her coaching talent to the Tread as well. After several months of rumors, the first on-demand Peloton Tread classes with Jess are now available, and she will coach her first live Tread class later today.
And if you’re a fan of Jess’ Bike classes, she’ll continue coaching those as well.
In a conversation published on the Peloton Output blog, Jess explained what prompted her to start coaching Tread classes:
“Almost two years ago, I had a dream where I was teaching a Tread class, and it felt real. It felt right,” says Jess. “The next day, I told Robin Arzon about this dream, and I said, ‘I want to be on the Tread.’ She replied, ‘I could totally see you doing that.’”
Jess also teased what Peloton users should expect from her Tread classes:
“Come into it with a sense of curiosity. Understand that it’s going to be uncomfortable, and that discomfort is the place from which you’re going to grow…we’re going to grow together!”
If you’re joining her on the Tread because you can’t get enough of her on the Bike, Jess also wants you to know that her mission is the same, and it’s one that we can all get behind: “I want to create that feeling that takes you out of your life and into potentiality, and how big and profound that life can be and feel. We’re all running in alignment, seeking that higher vibration to be better for ourselves, our families and our communities.”
In conjunction with the announcement today, Peloton has released five on-demand Tread classes coached by Jess, which you can access via the Peloton App or your touchscreen starting today.
- 20 min Hip Hop Run
- 10 min Cool Down Run
- 20 min HIIT Run
- 20 min Intervals Run
- 30 min EDM Run
Jess will teach her first live Peloton Tread class today, September 30, at 7 p.m. ET with the “20 min Premiere Run” class.
