Peloton to sell exercise bikes, treadmills at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores

The partnership will makes Dick’s Sporting Goods the first brick-and-mortar retailer outside Peloton’s own sales channels to sell its equipment.

The development comes days after Dara Treseder, Peloton’s global marketing head, said she was leaving the company.

Following the partnership, Peloton’s products will be available in more than 100 Dick’s Sporting Goods stores and its e-commerce platform, according to the statement.

The companies said the rollout is expected early in the holiday season.

The collaboration with Dick’s is the latest under Peloton Chief Executive Barry McCarthy’s turnaround plan to attract more customers, cut losses and improve cash flow.

The shift in sales strategy reflects the exercise bike maker’s efforts to combat a slowdown in sales from pandemic highs.

Peloton’s exercise bikes, treadmills and connected classes were all the rage among fitness enthusiasts during COVID-19 lockdowns, but demand nosedived after restrictions lifted and people returned to gyms.

Last month, the company struck a partnership with Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) to sell some of its fitness equipment on the online retailer’s U.S. platform.
