With the COVID19 pandemic forcing individuals to self-isolate, many people were left with little motivation to exercise. Peloton was able to capitalize on humanity’s inherent need to associate with others, leading me to create this TEDx talk not only to acknowledge the global workout community Peloton has facilitated but also to explain the immense psychological and neurological benefits of group exercise over independent workouts.
