The Peloton iOS App has a new update available for some members and it includes a complete rework of the class tab layout (now called “Workouts”), and a brand new feature that provides personalized daily content recommendations.
The “classes” tab at the bottom menu has been renamed to “workouts.” Members have for years seen the modality cover pages with instructor photos – that is now completely gone.
When you navigate to the workouts tab you’ll now see options for classes, collections, and programs. There are shortcuts at the top that can easily bring you to your bookmarked classes, view your stack, and view your personal upcoming schedule. These icons first appeared on the revamped home page that debuted on the iOS App in August.
The default view will be of classes, and underneath are all of the different modalities that you’ll need to scroll through to be brought to that category of classes.
Contained in the list of recent classes you should see a prompt to set your preferences so that you can “get personalized workout recommendations.”
Selecting this button will bring you to a series of questions about your personal workout habits and preferences, outlined below.
The first question is in relation to which class modalities most interest you. All of the available disciplines are listed, and you can click on a modality to receive more information about what it entails.
You can then select your preferred workout intensity, with three options to choose from: low, medium, or high intensity.
Next is a question about your music preferences, with a number of options to select: alternative, classic rock, country, electronic, hip hop, indie, Latin, pop, R&B, rock, and other.
The following question asks about the total duration of your typical workout, with a number of ranges to choose from:
- 5-20 minutes
- 20-30 minutes
- 30-45 minutes
- 45-60 minutes
- 60-90 minutes
- 90+ minutes
You are then asked about the equipment that you have access to, with an option to indicate that you do not have access to any equipment. The other options are:
- Any indoor bike
- Any treadmill
- Resistance bands
- Foam roller
- Light dumbbells
- Medium dumbbells
- Heavy dumbbells
- Workout mat
- Yoga blocks
- Yoga mat
- Yoga strap
The next step is to indicate your fitness goals, with a number of different options available:
- Improve strength
- Improve endurance
- Train for a race
- Feel good
- Gain muscle
- Lose weight
- Recover from injury
- Improve performance
- Look my best
- Increase flexibility
- Manage stress
Once you’ve input all your preferences you will be given a number of personalized recommendations tailored to your answers.
The recommendations span across different modalities and highlight some of your inputted preferences that were incorporated into the class selection, such as music, equipment, and length. There is also a quick glimpse at the class playlist provided.
You can start the class directly from the recommendation or bookmark it for a later date. You can also edit your preferences after viewing your recommendations.
Once you’ve completed your preferences you should see an option to view your daily recommendations alongside the standard class list moving forward.
This new preferences feature is somewhat similar to the “find your class match” tool that Peloton launched in July. The quiz is designed to help new members select their first class or a class of a new workout type they haven’t tried before. The quiz can be accessed at https://www.onepeloton.com/first-class. You can read more about this feature in our overview article.
Peloton has made a number of updates to the iOS app this year, most recently with the home screen addition.
This appears to be a slow rollout – so not every member will see this update right away. Will you be utilizing these new features?
