Peloton Interactive brings the spin class to your living room. Peloton machines have displays mounted on them that can show a spin instructor while the user is exercising. Part of the experience is that the user can join a spin class with her peers, in real-time.
In this patent (US10022590), Peloton protects features that relate to displaying and comparing performance data of the various users during the spin class. The display on the product shows how you, the user, are doing compared to how other users are doing. This can be a live or a pre-recorded session. In other words, the user can check the ‘Leaderboard’ to see how she is performing during a session relative to the pack.
This feature appears to be a part of Peloton’s overall brand and experience. A major gripe with stationary cardio is that “it’s boring”. Peloton has fixed that problem by making it interactive and competitive.
