By Team PelotonUpdated November 18, 2023


Athletes come in all shapes, sizes, and disciplines, but we think the best gift for athletes all around is the Peloton Tread+. It fits the bill for runners, supports full-body strength training, and invites even the most hardcore athletes to get in a yoga flow and a good stretch. Before you transform your fitness enthusiast’s home gym, here’s what you need to know about the Peloton Tread+.

1. From your first step on the Tread+, you’ll be entirely immersed in your workout thanks to the 32” touchscreen and the 20W sound bar, surrounding you with your instructor’s directions and the energy of the Peloton experience.

2. Get more out of your workout with bootcamps, strength training, and yoga & stretch classes that take you on and off the Tread+. Play them directly on the touchscreen or access them via the Peloton App (available for iPhone and Android) which is included in all Peloton memberships.

3. The Tread+’s unique speed and incline knobs make it incredibly responsive--easily roll them away or using the jump button in the middle to change your pace and resistance as easily as if you were running on the road.

4. Live in-class metrics (incline, output, pace and speed) help guide you during class and let you track your progress in real time, while the cushiony slat belt helps you go farther and faster than you ever imagined possible.

5. Connect with Members from all over the world on the Peloton Leaderboard! Enjoy a little healthy competition or hide it if you want your Tread+ workout only focused on you. Motivate another Member by sending a high-five through the Leaderboard to show them some love.

6. Got a music lover who needs a beat to stay motivated and locked in? Every track played in class appears on the side of the screen with the option to save it to a custom Peloton playlist to take off the Tread and out into the world.

7. Track improvements in performance by viewing the workout summary within your Peloton profile and look out for a monthly recap email from Peloton breaking down your month-over-month activity.

8. Gain an incredible fitness community via The Official Peloton Member Page. Our Facebook group is 200k strong and growing, and it’s where Peloton Members come together to share their stories, ask questions and support other Members from all over the world.

9. Get inspired and find motivation from our incredible lineup of Member stories that we share on our blog, The Output. You’ll receive curated fitness and lifestyle content that supports you in hitting your goals and living your best fitness life.
