READY AIM EMPIRE : Pivot Like Peloton : 8 Pivots You Can Use for Your Studio

Y’all, Peloton is now a household name. 

They’ve managed to find a steadfast place in people’s homes. 

And their reign shows no signs of slowing down. 

But, things didn’t always look so great for the brand. 

In fact, if you’re an avid follower of industry news, you might remember how Peloton hit rock bottom at the end of 2019 when it’s now infamous commercial hit the web. 

Needless to say, it didn’t go over well. 

Apart from criticism against the ad for promoting misogyny, negative body image, and unhealthy marriage dynamics, it brought to the surface many underlying issues within Peloton as a company, with articles calling it “disconnected from reality” and an “unrealistic” investment. 

The industry was certain Peloton’s demise was near. 

So, what happened in the six short months between December 2019 and March 2020 that made Peloton an industry giant despite being labelled a failure?

How did they do it?

Join me in today’s episode as I dissect the details of Peloton’s 2019 fall from grace, their current unprecedented success, and the 8 things they did to make that leap. 

And if you’re hungry for more tips on how to implement those steps into your studio, download our FREE Pivot Like Peloton mini-training series (link below)!
