Time to slip on your Ivy Park gear and get in “Formation”…
Beyoncé has teamed up with Peloton to create a series of themed workouts to honour historically black colleges and universities.
The cycling, running, strength, bootcamp, yoga and meditation classes will be a tribute to the annual homecoming celebrations at the schools known as HBCUs, which also inspired Beyonce’s 2019 live album and documentary. They’ll be available on Peloton’s bikes and treadmills as well as its mobile app, the company said Tuesday.
“I’ve been a Peloton member for several years, and I’m excited to partner with a company that helps people, young and old, be the best versions of themselves, in an innovative and adaptable way,” Beyoncé said in a statement.
The homecoming classes are just the first that Beyoncé will help develop through her multi-year partnership with the buzzy at-home fitness company, which has seen use of its home workout products explode during the coronavirus pandemic.
Beyoncé — who is the most requested musical artist among Peloton’s more than 3.6 million members — will work with the New York-based company on “various forms of class curation across all workout disciplines” over the coming months.
The partnership also has a charitable component — Peloton will give students at 10 HBCUs free two-year digital memberships by the end of November allowing them to access a library of classes that can be used with or without equipment.
