Peloton’s top instructors, from Cody Rigsby to Alex Toussaint, have turned their motivation-packed cycling classes into a unique brand of stardom, amassing millions of Instagram followers and devoted fans.

If you’re looking for a new read to flip through between your Peloton workout sessions, here’s a list of what books are coming out this year.
Last year, we put together an in-depth comparison for eight of the most popular rowers. These included the Peloton Row, Hydrow and Hydrow Waves, Aviron Impact and Aviron Strong, Ergatta, NordicTrack RW900, and the classic Concept 2.

It’s no secret that the high-end at-home trainer Tonal has seen better days. After facing massive staff layoffs, store closures, a nagging lawsuit with its major supplier, and a burn rate that has soured investors, the company is now rumored to be exploring a sale. But who will pick up the tab?
We’ve known Peloton has been working on a competitor to Tonal for a while now. Pricing surveys that were sent to members last year referred to this upcoming strength device as the “Peloton Platform.” Yesterday, real-life photos of the device being used have been discovered. Check them out below.

With the price of the Peloton Row being nearly $3,200, many have been seeking other lower-cost options. One of the most popular being to purchase a Concept 2 Rower (which costs less than $1,000) with the hope that Peloton will eventually allow their rowing classes to be taken with the digital app.
I am sorry to have to warn you, but this does not seem likely.

With Peloton, I feel like their top-notch content almost always outshines their equipment. With the upcoming release of the Peloton Row, that is no longer the case.
I believe the Peloton Row is the best piece of fitness equipment Peloton has ever produced. It is, well, almost perfect. Even still, with its current price of $3,200, I cannot suggest it except for the most dedicated of Peloton fans.
Peloton’s new rower (named the Peloton Row) is now available for pre-order with a release date set for December this year. Here is all the information on the specs, price, features, and exclusive content that you should know about.

Peloton’s fiscal Q4 earnings are out, and it was an ugly quarter.

After the Peloton Rower was announced at their Homecoming event in May, there have been no updates about it since. With Peloton’s shift in manufacturing and removal of social media posts mentioning the Peloton Rower, many have anticipated the release may have been delayed.
However, a recent update to the Peloton API hints that may not be the case. The Peloton Rower may still be released later this year.
Recent patents reveal new safety tech that could possibly be included with an upcoming rerelease of the Peloton Tread+. Discovered by Bob Treemore, two new treadmill safety patents have been filed by Peloton’s primary manufacturer, Rexon, in Taiwan.
Peloton has set august 19 for its Grand Reopening with both Peloton Studios New York and Peloton Studios London. After a soft reopening last month, it seems Peloton is almost ready for the studios to be fully open to the public.
Today, Peloton has announced that it will stop making their own bikes and treadmills, and instead seek to outsource all manufacturing. CEO Barry McCarthy said this is will allow the company to simplify its supply chain and fix its cost structure.
Given their similarities in both look and price, choosing between the Peloton Tread and NordicTrack 2450 can be tough. To help make the choice easier, I have put together a comprehensive list with over a dozen differences between the two treadmills.
Peloton gave a teaser of an upcoming rower during their Homecoming event last May. Since no additional details have so far been given, I went ahead and put together my own Peloton Rower wish list.
Peloton has expanded their popular Power Zone training program with two additional instructors: Sam Yo and Erik Jäger. Unlike Peloton’s other classes, members taking Power Zone workouts focus on staying in their individualized zones.
The addition of Sam and Erik brings the Power Zone roster up to six instructors – twice the size it was one year ago.
As of today, Peloton has removed the video chat feature on the Peloton Bike, Bike+, and Tread. Previously, members who had added each other as friends on Peloton could start a video chat if taking the same class. While Peloton mentioned this feature would be taken away last week in comments on their Facebook group, the video chat feature has now finally been taken down.
I have tested and reviewed over 50 pieces of home fitness tech this past year. From smart wearables like the Apple Watch, to indoor bikes like Peloton, there are a ton of great options to choose from. With so much to choose from, it can sometimes be hard figuring out which should take a priority.
To help you out, I have created tier list for the best fitness tech in 2022.
From Peloton to FightCamp to virtual reality boxing workouts like SuperNatural, there are now lots of home boxing programs to choose from. Over the past six months, I have been testing them all with the goal of finding out which home boxing workout is the best.

Today, Peloton’s newest strength instructor, Logan Aldridge, is launching his first class, a 20-minute full-body strength class at 7 p.m. ET. A CrossFit Games competitor and para-athlete, Aldridge is the brand’s first “adaptive instructor” who plans to bring an inspiring mix of inclusive fitness training and accessibility to Peloton members with varying physical abilities. From the looks of this teaser, expect to seriously be challenged by what you think is possible.

Today we take a hands-on look at the new Peloton Heart Rate Armband. Peloton’s previous heart rate monitor was well known to be a cheap, poorly made device (which they still sell for $34). However, this new Peloton armband is strong step in the right direction. You can easily tell that there is a similar design philosophy as used in the recent Peloton Guide.
