Peloton, a high-tech indoor cycling class, is one of our favorite workouts. With easy-to-follow but helpful metrics (like calories burned and effort expended) and awesomely aspirational instructors, it's as fun as it is effective. So imagine our delight at hearing the company is betting on running with a new treadmill, the Peloton Tread.
The only catch? It costs $4,000.
Debuted at the International CES trade show in Las Vegas yesterday, the Peloton Tread, per The New York Times, has been in development for almost two years and will start shipping in the fall.
So what sets it apart from run-of-the-mill (sorry) machines? Design and tech, mostly. Like the Peloton bike, the tread will allow you to stream live and recorded bootcamp-style classes led by an expert trainer in NYC. The design is sleek and includes surround sound and a 32-inch screen for watching the instructor.
For those of us who don't have a cool $4k to drop on something we could get for $500, the company plans to offer an installment plan, with a monthly price of $149.
Coolest home gym ever? We think yes.
