Peloton have already transformed the home fitness scene, capitalising on lockdown restrictions and welcoming a 300% rise in members last year alone.
Now the leading interactive platform, which has clocked up a loyal community of 6.2 million, is making its first foray into connected strength training with the Peloton Guide.
How does the Peloton Guide work?
The AI-enabled device uses a Movement Tracker, powered by machine learning and smart camera technology, which links to the new Peloton Heart Rate Band, giving you the full PT experience in your living room.
'Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the interest in our strength content explode,' said Tom Cortese, Peloton’s co-founder and chief product officer. 'Peloton Guide demystifies strength training to create a more engaging experience that will help Members stay motivated. We combined our world-class Instructors and class content with the best machine learning technology to create a whole new way to train. This is just the beginning for Peloton strength. Guide will keep getting smarter so it can grow stronger alongside our Members.”
Designed for every experience level, from strength training newbies to aficionados, it has a huge range of Instructors, with different coaching styles (FYI: Ally Love is a WH team fave), and class options, including a total intro — 'Beginner Strength' — from Olivia Amato and Matty Maggiacomo.
As well as checking your form for corrections and adjustments by comparing to the real-time Instructor on Self Mode, Body Activity will recommend classes based on which muscle groups you’ve recently worked to ensure a safe and well-rounded training experience.
How much is the Peloton Guide?
At £450 with £12.99 a month for the membership, it’s no snip. But Peloton’s most accessible product to date provides access for up to five people in a household, which is a fraction of the cost of a weekly trainer (which can be upwards of £2,500 a year).
Handy if you’re short on space, unlike the Bike, Bike+, Tread and Tread+ which have sizeable inbuilt screens, the Peloton Guide links to your television, giving you access to the much-loved class library with your own weights and equipment.
Worried about privacy? You’ll have control over the camera with a slidable cover and the mic with a manual off-switch, as well as voice-activated Sleep Mode.
