Before the word took on a new meaning in the fitness industry, the term “peloton” referred to two or more cyclists biking together. The Peloton brand is now a household name known for kickstarting connected fitness inspired by the idea of togetherness. Their roots are in cycling, specifically stationary bikes marketed to busy on-the-go individuals looking for at-home workout solutions. While they have expanded into on-demand fitness and enhanced their product selection, we felt that the brand had the potential to expand even further into the wellness space. To put their brand back in conversation with other at-home, on-demand apps, and services, Uncomn explored a new identity for Peloton.
We concepted an integrated rebrand campaign that could reframe Peloton into an inclusive, aspirational lifestyle and wellness brand. We aimed to comprehensively showcase Peloton as an innovative leader in immersive, at-home fitness experiences for all workout types, ability levels, interests, and demographics.
As a creative agency, Uncomn Projects is constantly looking for untapped potential, so Peloton caught our eye. Beyond the cycling niche, we saw an opportunity for them to speak to a broader wellness audience. Though recognized for premium equipment, evoking intensity over accessibility, we felt Peloton had the ingredients to become an inclusive, aspirational wellness brand. If strategically repositioned through research and integrated storytelling, Peloton could shift perceptions from intimidating to inspiring. A rebrand celebrating their expertise in creating powerful fitness communities would light the path for Peloton to transform into a lifestyle brand, partnering with their consumers to help them reach their goals and be their best selves – wherever their fitness journey might take them.
Looking beyond the cycling community, our research revealed a strong demand for flexible, on-demand workouts extending far beyond equipment-based exercises. Though known for premium hardware and motivational cycling content, Peloton’s true strengths are accountability, expertise, and collective inspiration. These intangibles showed tremendous potential to engage broader audiences if anchored to a lifestyle brand positioning. Peloton’s minimalist aesthetic provided a polished starting point to build an inclusive, immersive wellness experience. But truly realizing that opportunity would require embracing personalization, diversified content, and omni-channel engagement. Repositioned through insights and inclusivity, Peloton could become so much more than a luxury bike brand.
Seeing an opportunity for growth, our team reimagined Peloton as an inclusive, empowering wellness brand. Through competitive analysis, we identified pathways for Peloton to expand beyond premium cycling into broader fitness and lifestyle content. To evolve their brand positioning, we focused on showcasing the diversity of Peloton’s existing products & services and its potential to motivate every fitness journey. We developed an energetic, geometric visual system designed to make premium wellness feel attainable.
