Meditate and Stretch Mid-Flight with Peloton’s New Classes on Delta
Flying during the holidays always brings some level of stress, and doing so while trying to protect yourself and your travel mates amid the COVID-19 pandemic undoubtedly serves up an added layer of anxiety. If you’re booked on a Delta flight in the coming months, the pros at Peloton are offering some ways you can relax, rest, recharge, and stretch out some stress — all from your seat at 35,000 feet in the air.
The fitness behemoth is helping its devoted users stay active throughout the holiday season with its new Peloton travel guide, including a hotel finder tool that will help you find all the hotels in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Germany that are equipped with Peloton Bikes, so you can get your sweat on no matter where your holiday travels may take you. But before you take a class from your favorite instructor at your destination, you need to get there first, and that’s where these new mid-flight offerings — aptly coined “Classes in the Clouds” — come into play.
Available as part of in-flight entertainment on all Delta flights equipped with seatback screens, passengers can enjoy five classes tailored to the skies, all taught by Peloton’s world-famous instructors.
These five meditation and stretch classes will range from five to 20-minute sessions, making them perfect whether you’re on a long-haul flight or have a shorter journey. They’ll be hosted by instructors Anna Greenberg, Ross Rayburn, Matty Maggiacomo, Chelsea Jackson-Roberts, and Adrian Williams, and will be available now through early 2022 for all your holiday travel.
The partnership marks the first time that Peloton content will be offered on a non-Peloton platform, which means devotees and newbies alike can get a taste for why millions of users around the globe rely on Peloton to get their hearts pumping and ease holiday-induced stress.
Jen Cotter, the company’s chief content officer, told CNN Business that’s exactly the idea they had in mind when designing the specialized sessions for Delta passengers. “It gives us the chance for people that aren’t Peloton members about this accessibility and that we have the best fitness content in the world. We know that once someone downloads the Peloton app and tries one of our classes, they’re going to fall in love with Peloton.”
The app now features a “Made for Travel” collection, with 41 classes currently available designed to be done in small spaces like hotel rooms (including bodyweight, strength, meditation, HIIT cardio, yoga, and more at all fitness levels), as well as outdoor runs for when you need to catch a break from your family… or, of course, get some well-deserved fresh air.
