Peloton, the popular fitness brand that provides expert instruction and world-class content, has partnered with the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago to advance community health, wellbeing, and engagement. This strategic partnership aims to increase access to best-in-class fitness programming, close racial health and opportunity gaps across communities, and improve the overall health and wellness of members.
Access to Peloton’s innovative programs, equipment, instruction, and coaching will be made available to YMCA of Metro Chicago members at select locations. The partnership also includes designated spaces for Y members to try free workouts on the Peloton App at the Lake View YMCA, and four YMCA of Metro Chicago locations have been outfitted with 12 Peloton Bikes situated in specially designed, co-branded, spaces.
Peloton and YMCA Chicago have announced a new partnership intended to help close racial health and opportunity gaps across communities, and improve the overall health and wellness of members.
The Fry Family YMCA in the western suburbs, McCormick YMCA in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood, Sage YMCA in the northwest suburbs, and South Side YMCA in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood were strategically chosen as pilot locations for their geographic and demographic diversity and opportunity for community impact.
The partnership will launch with a special Adult Day Camp event celebrating the partnership and its impact on Saturday, August 19, at the McCormick YMCA from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will feature fitness and day-camp activities, healthy snacks, special guest appearances, a health and wellbeing panel discussion, and more.
