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.
