Why a cheaper treadmill is a key strategy for Peloton’s continued growth

Despite being known as a cycling company, Peloton has many other options for workouts.

Every Sunday evening, I take a look at the upcoming Peloton schedule for the week and map out which classes I plan to take.

I reviewed it earlier this year over on 9to5Mac.

How one woman lost 28 pounds with Peloton and diet changes

I’ve been lifting weights since I was 16 years old, and I’ve been dedicated to cardio since I was 25. The one thing I’ve learned about fitness among everything else is that you can’t out-exercise a bad diet.
