Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Under $500 with $13/month membership additional
  • Minimal installation effort (it’s just a camera)
  • Operates on voice command
  • Access to Peloton Strength app
  • Personalized suggestions for total-body workouts
What needs improvement ...
  • Weights and arm heart rate band sold separately
  • Claims to have a movement tracker, but we aren’t convinced this is AI
  • Hard to find distinct benefits over just having the regular Peloton app

Product Summary

The Peloton Guide is a smart home gym priced under $500. While the brand is typically known for its work in cardio spaces, a la the Bike+ and the Tread, it is branching into the strength space through introducing the Guide.

Unlike other, more expensive smart home gyms, the Guide is simply a camera that you hook up to your TV. It gives you access to Peloton Strength, which is a library of thousands of classes led by world-class, high-energy instructors. Additionally, the Guide has benefits that include “Self Mode,” where you can see yourself on the screen alongside the instructors. This is intended to help you improve your form.

There is also “Body Activity,” which monitors which muscle groups you have worked in your exercise during the week. Body Activity will offer up suggestions to classes you can take to make sure you get a total-body workout. There is also a movement tracker with the Guide, though the brand has stopped short of sharing whether or not it is AI-powered and can offer form correction.

There is a $13/month membership fee with the guide (less than what you pay for an all-access membership to the Peloton app). Also, there is no equipment included with the Guide other than the camera and the remote. You need to purchase weights separately.
