  • Peloton introduced two new instructors this week – Tunde Oyeneyin and Kendall Toole.   You absolutely must go read the article linked here to read Tunde’s story.  (or better yet, listen to the episode!)  This lady is the real deal and I think I have a new favorite instructor. I am looking forward to taking a class with Kendall this coming week and I will tell you more about on the next episode!
  • Peloton continues on the road to IPO with the release of a roadshow video. This roadshow video is absolutely brilliant and a complete MUST WATCH for anyone who loves Peloton like I do.  It highlights the community and shows many behind-the-scenes details that I can never get enough of.  The link is kind of tricky and doesn’t always work, so keep trying if you get an error.  It will take you to the main page and Peloton is listed on the left hand side. Scroll down and click and ENJOY!

121: BONUS EPISODE: Peloton IPO Special with Michael Jurenka

121: BONUS EPISODE: Peloton IPO Special with Michael Jurenka

It’s a special bonus episode of The Clip Out. Peloton’s SEC filings are public and all of us outside of the financial sector are collectively wondering what it all means. So we dig into them with special guest Michael Jurenka C.P.A. 

If you’ve read many of the articles written so far, you’ve undoubtedly been frustrated by their complete lack of understanding when it comes to what differentiates Peloton from other, ordinary exercise equipment companies. We wanted someone who could understand what makes Peloton special without being blinded by fandom. Yet, we also needed someone who understands the passion that Peloton has inspired in its users. 

That’s where Michael Jurenka comes in. He isn’t just a certified public accountant. He’s also a Peloton owner. So he brings both financial expertise and a love of Peloton to the table. 

Now keep reading while we do a little CYA:

120: Peloton IPO Filings Now Public and we interview Sarah Lester

120: Peloton IPO Filings Now Public and we interview Sarah Lester

Its been a big week in Pelotonia!

  • The Peloton IPO paperwork has gone public and there’s lots to talk about.
  • We dig into the SEC filings (it’s not as boring as it sounds).
  • The media has lots of, ummm…interesting takes on what it all means:
  • Business Insider has an odd take on Peloton.  This particular article discusses the letter that John Foley included as a pitch to investors with the SEC filing.  BI insists that Foley “downplays” that the company is essentially a bike-selling company.  
  • CNBC has an even odder take.  This article seems to imply that since the health of the United States overALL isn’t improving, then Peloton is clearly not effective.  We can’t even pretend to understand where this came from logic-wise.
  • The New York Times questions if Peloton’s success can last.  This is the most balanced of the three articles, they aren’t completely anti-Peloton, but they do try to turn all the new subscriptions gained in the last year into a negative.   (Plus they interviewed Crystal!)  
  • Law.com has an article about a father/daughter duo who works at Peloton.  They attempt to draw comparisons between Uber and Peloton for a similar situation, but we think its more about SEO optimization than actual writing. However, they mention the Kushi family and they are fantastic and deserve tons of good press!
  • Is Flywheel going to start working with Wal-Mart?  Hear what the Flywheel prophet has to say.
  • Alison Sweeney proclaims her love of Peloton.
  • Christine D’Ercole returns to the National Championships for the third straight year.
  • Selena Samuela completes her first marathon…and wins!
  • Changes to the schedule are coming meaning more live classes for the West Coast.  BUT… what ELSE does it mean.  We are here to speculate!

All this plus our interview with Sarah Lester! Sarah is a survivor of psoriatic arthritis and she loves Christine D’Ercole.  Christine actually inspired a new project Sarah has just launched that is doing tons of good in her community!

Make sure to check out Sarah’s yummy (Tom approved) brownie recipe here.

Robin Arzon announced this week that she’s taking a break from Peloton until the end of July.  It’s for the BEST reason.  We’ll let you know why.

Howard Stern is thinking about getting a Peloton but he has lots of questions. Apparently its all he’s been talking about on air.

And Becs Gentry and Jess Sims invade San Francisco. Jess Sims took over Instagram stories and showed us that she is JUST LIKE US.  She hates hills too.  However, when asked, she says she is NOT taking it easy on us when she gets back. 

Peloton went live on Facebook this for Marathon Training discussion.  This discussion was all about the Strength for runners program.  Rebecca Kennedy and Andy Speer both hosted the Q&A.
