Peloton+ pummels progenies
With the pandemic closing all the gyms, working out at home has become the best way to stay safe and in shape.
This means that the sale of workout equipment has skyrocketed, and there is no exception with Peloton treadmills. The newest addition to the Peloton lineup is the new Peloton Tread +. This new device is used to work out in the comfort of your own home. In light of the recent pandemic, this has become more and more appealing to consumers. This is something apparent by sales being three times the normal rate for the last three months of 2020.
However, there seems to be a dark side to the treadmill with many regulators telling people to steer clear of the contraption.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has come out with statements that claim children were hurt, and one child even killed by the back rotator on the Peloton Tread +. There have been over 30 cases where children or pets were injured in New York alone.
In one incident, a parent was using the treadmill when the incident occurred. Peloton has recently come out to say that when in use, keep pets and children away from the treadmill. They suggest you keep it in a room that is inaccessible to both. This would be the best overall solution.
