In the NY Times, Peloton CEO John Foley documents how he spends his Sundays.
BATHROOM RUN I work out before leaving the house. The other Sunday I did the new Beyoncé Bootcamp on Tread, which lives in our downstairs bathroom because we didn’t have anywhere else to put it. Jess Sims, the instructor, talked about the Harlem school where she used to be a teacher and principal, gave a shout-out to her librarian. Usually I think about which instructor I haven’t taken in a while — 80 percent of whom live here in the city — rather than which music I want to work out to. It’s kind of like your kids, you can’t love one of them more.
I recently read that the most successful startups are built by founders who love their products and not just ones looking to make money. Foley clearly falls in the former, and his passion is a huge part of what’s made Peloton successful as the article even mentions that he would spend his Sundays:
As does Mr. Foley, 49, who put himself through college working nights at a Skittles factory, and who has been steadfastly evangelizing home workouts since 2012. (For years, he spent Sundays personally peddling Pelotons at Short Hills Mall in New Jersey.)
I did chuckle at the part where his Peloton tread is in his bathroom. I love write-ups like this, and it really shows that despite the record-breaking year for Peloton, the Foley family is just a normal family with normal routines.
