Sweating Together: How Peloton Built a Billion Dollar Venture and Created Community in a Digital World is an examination of a product/service that has made a huge impact on the fitness industry. Author David J. Miller, Ph.D. passionately uses a Peloton himself, and so has inside information on their products and services. Miller makes it clear that he’s a fan of Peloton, but that doesn’t detract from his honest look at the company and its products. He looks at Peloton products as more than exercise devices but as part of today’s convergence of resources as diverse as physical fitness and fashion. Miller interviewed two of the founders of Peloton, along with others who are instrumental in the company today. He looks at not only the origin of the company but what its future might be. The book includes a timeline of important events in Peleton’s history. There are four appendices, including Peloton’s mission and values statement.
Sweating Together should be a supplemental textbook for university business classes. It would also be a worthy read for anyone who owns a Peloton product or is thinking about buying one. Furthermore, the book will inspire potential entrepreneurs as they read about what an idea and passion can do. Finally, the book should inspire readers—as it did me—to do more to get into better physical condition. The appendix about “Select [Peloton] Instructor Quotes” is a bonus, as readers see how the instructors motivate their clients. I’m happy to recommend Miller’s book to business students, owners, or potential owners of Peloton products, or anyone who simply wants a fascinating look into a life-changing company.
