What is the minimum ceiling height requirements for the Peloton Tread?

One common concern people who are looking into the Peloton Treadmill have is whether their ceilings are tall enough for the Tread. With a maximum 15% incline, there are certain requirements needed for the Tread. Peloton suggests the following minimum ceiling heights, based on how tall the people using the treadmill will be:

Ceiling HeightUser Height
Up to 7′Up to 5’2″
7′ to 7’6″Up to 5’7″
7’6″ to 7’8″Up to 6’1″
9′All heights

Said another way, if anyone using the tread is over 6′, Peloton recommends that the ceiling be 9′ tall or higher

When the Tread is at 0% incline, the deck height is at 11.5″ and the touchscreen height maxes out at 6′. When the incline is at the full 15%, the deck height is 18″, and the touchscreen height is then 6’6″.

One thing to keep in mind, if you really want the tread, and have drop ceiling panels, it is possible to remove some panels to create some extra head room! Tread instructor Matty Maggiacomo did just that when he had to teach his “Live From Home” classes in the Spring of 2020.
