After a few months of using my Peloton bike, I now have a bird’s-eye view of some aspects of the platform and where improvements could be made. The main aspect of the platform I see issues with is the Peloton leaderboard and how it calculates total output.

Comment: Peloton is missing an opportunity with merchandise

This week, I’ve had two different shipments arrive from Peloton’s apparel store, and I am really happy with the various shirts and shorts I received. As I was working out last night, I was thinking about Peloton’s missed opportunity with merchandise through the Peloton interface.

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. Through its Peloton digital app for smartphones, tablets, Apple TV, and Roku, it offers boot camp classes, outdoor runs, weight lifting, and even meditation classes.

Peloton’s music ambitions go much deeper than motivation

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 prefer live classes, but on-demand at a scheduled time is my second favorite as it gives me that extra push on the leaderboard.

I’ve listened to a little Grateful Dead in my life, but I’ve always wanted to dig into the band more, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
