Peloton Tread Review
By J. Maki
If you are serious about your exercise and are looking for the ability to access on-demand and live workouts complete with coaching, and you are ready to drop some serious coin, the Peloton might just be the perfect machine for you. Very study, as it is built with carbon steel, and it weighs over 455 pounds. This thing isn’t moving, no matter how hard you are working on the spacious 67” x 20” running belt. Very much an innovative unit from minor details such as knob-controlled speed and incline adjustments, to major elements such as the on-demand and live workouts led by credible fitness professionals that can turbocharge your motivation and your fitness improvements. This may be the granddaddy of all treadmills, but that doesn’t mean it is the right model for everybody. Regardless, I encourage everyone to check this out (https://www.onepeloton.com/tread) and prepare to be wowed. This sucker is definitely on my wishlist!
What makes the Peloton Treadmill unique?
Too many bells and whistles to name, but primarily the unit’s compatibility and synchronicity with its subscription service for on-demand and live workouts.
What is the Peloton Treadmill missing?
This thing is massive, so it is missing any sense of convenience in terms of space consideration.

What are customers saying about the Peloton Treadmill? (Taken from the Peloton website)
“The best thing about this tread is the well constructed belt that you run on.”
“Everything about the design of this treadmill from the screen to the incline and speed knobs is perfection.”
“The classes change it up, along with the trainers so it’s never boring, you can choose between walking and running or both. They have scenic runs and walks, amazing instructors that motivate you, I just can’t talk highly enough.”
“The Tread is an amazing piece of equipment is the center piece in my personal gym. It is the closest thing you can get to running on the road with a personal trainer.”
“First and foremost, this treadmill is beautifully designed… all the bells and whistles are there for a fantastic run. However, the dealbreaker for me is that the ONLY thing you can access on that nice HUGE screen are training classes and or a virtual running path.”
“My ONLY issue with it is that I can’t pause the class.”
