Peloton launches gamified treadmill workouts with Lanebreak Tread

According to Peloton, “users have to match and sustain their incline or speed according to animated cues on the tablet to get the highest score possible. The experience, which is available to All-Access Members using a Peloton Tread, combines immersive visuals, fitness-inspired challenges and a beat-pumping soundtrack.”

Lanebreak Tread is inspired by Peloton’s instructor classes and takes advantage of the Tread’s hardware to “provide an immersive auto-incline experience through a new Hill Moment. When entering a Hill, the Tread will adjust its incline automatically to follow the curve shown to the user in the 3D world displayed on the Tread tablet.”

Peloton has also stated that Lanebreak Tread includes a Pacer mechanic that rewards members for “following an interval workout design, as well as updated visuals and controls that have been re-designed specifically with running and walking in mind, such as a new Tread-inspired avatar and a breadth of pace-based difficulty options. Additionally, just like the Peloton Instructor class library, Members can expect community-led features such as leaderboards..”

Tom Cortese, Peloton’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer said, “The Peloton experience has been infused with gamification principles since the beginning, with features such as the in-class leaderboard, achievements, and streaks. Lanebreak was created to offer an entirely new workout experience that combines an expertly designed workout with immersive graphics, energizing playlists and enhanced game mechanics. Lanebreak classes are fun, immersive, and drive you to hit workout cues in a unique way.”

Lanebreak Tread and Bike include a wide variety of music with which to workout to. These include Pop, Electronic, R&B, Hip Hop, Rock, Metal, Country and Latin. The celebrate the launch of Lanebreak Tread, Peloton is releasing a custom level featuring Tiësto.

Tiësto said of the collab, “Super excited to partner with Peloton on this new Tread experience! Music has a unique ability to motivate and bring out energy when we need it most. Being active and working out is something I love to do, and the high energy in my music is the perfect fit. I am thrilled Peloton selected the DJ Mix version of my latest album DRIVE for the new Lanebreak Tread workout.”
