Peloton on Tuesday released a version of its exercise app for Apple TV. With a subscription, users of this app can tune in to classes on stretching, cycling, yoga and more.

All of this is available from home. That’s surely a boon for those unwilling to go to a gym.

Peloton is a long-time Apple supporter

Some Apple users have been watching Peloton exercise classes on their TV for years. The company already offers an app for iPhone and iPad. And this supports casting with AirPlay, so what’s on the mobile device screen can be wirelessly transmitted to an Apple TV. Or this can be done with a Chromecast.

But some people will likely prefer a Peloton Apple TV app.

And this is just the latest Apple device with support from this exercise service. The company debuted an Apple Watch application in April, 2020. And data collected during workouts is synchronized with the iOS Health app.

Cost of using the Peloton Apple TV app

There are a wide variety classes available, like meditation, strength training and running. Access is available via the Apple TV app or other devices.

These are not free. A monthly subscription costs $12.99. Still, there’s a 30-day free trial. And anyone who owns a bike or treadmill from this company gets access for free.
