Demand for Peloton workout equipment has never been higher, and the company is expanding rapidly in an effort to keep up with its exceptional growth during the pandemic.
With gyms and studios temporarily shuttered around the country to prevent the spread of the coronavirus earlier this year, interest in Peloton’s luxury at-home fitness products surged. In the company’s most recent quarter, sales increased by 172% and caused delays in shipments due to overwhelming demand.
Amid the chaos, Peloton has made a push to democratize its brand by offering cheaper versions of its popular stationary bike and treadmill, while also introducing enhanced models that better cater to physical activities beyond spinning and running.
Digital subscriptions have served as another growth driver for Peloton, allowing consumers to still dabble in the company’s programming by streaming interval training and yoga classes without shelling out for a bike. According to Peloton, paid subscriptions grew 210% year-over-year in its most recent quarter.
“The pandemic has continued to propel demand for our products,” Peloton CEO John Foley said on a call with investors in September. “Organic demand for our bike remains strong and member engagement remains elevated, despite improving weather and the gradual opening of brick-and-mortar fitness locations.”
As the company looks to maintain its pace of impressive growth, it’s investing in a team capable of bolstering its meteoric rise, particularly in technology and development roles. The company currently has more than 3,000 employees and is hiring for hundreds more, with most openings in categories like software, operations and logistics, and information technology.
