I’ve been running on my Peloton Tread for over a month now and I’ve gotten to know it quite well. I run indoors a lot! I actually do more running indoors than I do outdoors. I’ve put the Peloton tread to the test and in this video, I am going to talk about 5 things that I really like about this tread and 5 things I am not a fan of or I think could be improved.
The bottom line, for me, the Peloton has more pros than cons. As a treadmill, it ticked all the boxes for me. It’s well built. I like the modern design, the running surface, the screen, the layout of the speed and incline knobs, tray, and very good water bottle holders. All treadmills I looked at in the $2500 price range, they just did not do it for me. I could clearly see the compromises the manufacturers made in the design.
If you are someone who is looking to get into running, or just a healthier lifestyle, I think the peloton treadmill paired with the Peloton subscription offer so much, and you are more likely to use it and not ends up as a clothing rack.
For the hard core runners out there, It might not have some of the bells and whistles other treadmills might have, but unless you are looking for something specific, like a higher speed (maximum Tread speed is 12.5mph) or a higher incline than 12.5% then you just might be surprised by the quality of the Peloton Tread.
Whether you decide to get the Peloton subscription or not, there are limitations in the software that I wish Peloton addresses. But these are all in the software and as we know, the software can be easily updated and Peloton might or might not address them. These were not really important to me when I purchased the treadmill and I can live without them. Personally, I just wanted a treadmill that is well built, looked good, and hopefully will last me many years.
I guess what I am trying to say here is, don’t let that subscription intimidate you. You don’t have to get and it will work just like any other treadmill out there.
Thanks for watching/reading!
