With Peloton issuing a voluntary recall on its treadmill products, consumers may find themselves looking for alternatives to the running equipment.
The connected fitness company on Wednesday issued an apology for waiting to recall its $4,295 Tread+ and its $2,495 Tread, around 125,000 units in total, weeks after the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urged users to stop using the equipment.
Peloton and the CPSC said that anyone who purchased its treadmill products should contact the company for a refund.
For those looking for other options, here are the best alternatives for at-home running workouts.
