Peloton is now a household name in the spin world, with cycling aficionados trading in their gym memberships to pedal from the luxury of home. The Peloton Bike, starting at $2,245 with a $39 monthly membership fee, offers access to 14 daily live classes and 4,000 on-demand rides. Riders can join live classes from anywhere in the world for that group-class experience with personalized motivation—instructors even cheer you on by name.
And last year, Peloton released its updated take on the traditional treadmill. The Tread, starting at $4,295, also requires a $39 monthly membership fee to access the 10 daily live classes led by treadmill instructors. Classes range from interval to strength and even yoga.
