    The safety of Pelotons, the immersive home workout experience with virtual classes that claims to rival a full gym membership, has been thrust back in the media spotlight following a shocking storyline in the Sex And The City reboot.  In the first episode of 'And Just Like That', Carrie's husband Mr Big (Chris Noth) dies of a heart attack shortly after a 45-minute session on a Peloton Bike, the piece of high-end home gym equipment - prices starting at £1,350/$1,495 - that's become a must-have in affluent homes.  The brand has also been hit with real-life tragedies, mainly concerning its $2,400 treadmill, the Tread+, which was only released in the US and has since been recalled.  A six-year-old in the US died in an accident in March, although details have never been released. Another incident saw a three-year-old child, who went on to make a full recovery, suffer head injuries after becoming trapped underneath the machine.  Other children have reported 'burns' or abrasions, with the family of one three-year-old boy pulled under a Tread+ treadmill saying he will be scarred for life.  In...
    Peloton announced owners will now have to sign up for a $39 monthly subscription to use its $4,000 treadmills. The free “Just Run” option on the Tread+ treadmill was removed following safety concerns. Last month, in collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Peloton issued a voluntary recall for the Tread+ after a child was killed and more than 70 other incidents were reported. When contacted by the Washington Examiner, the company said it introduced a new feature called “Tread Lock,” which requires a four-digit passcode to secure the device from unauthorized access. “Unfortunately due to current technical limitations, Tread Lock is not yet available without a Peloton Membership,” the company said in a statement. “We have waived three months of All-Access Membership for all Tread+ owners, so those without a subscription will need to activate their free 3-month All-Access Membership to enable Tread Lock before they can access Just Run.” CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION URGES PEOPLE WITH CHILDREN OR PETS TO STOP USING PELOTON TREAD+ Peloton said it is working on system updates...
    Lawmakers on Tuesday challenged top policy executives from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to provide more transparency regarding the use of algorithms on the platforms and criticized their business models for relying heavily on user engagement. At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Democrats and Republicans raised concerns that algorithms used to create tailored timelines are also pushing users toward extremist content and amplifying false information faster than it can be removed. "Algorithms have great potential for good," said Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska. "They can also be misused and we the American people need to be reflective and thoughtful about that." Sasse, the ranking member of the committee's panel on privacy, technology and the law, said that while services provided by the social media companies are free, "there's somebody who would really like to capture our attention, shorten our attention spans, and drive us into often poisonous echo chambers." U.S. Senator Josh Hawley asks questions during a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology, and the Law, at the U.S. Capitol on April 27, 2021 in Washington,...
    A six-year-old girl suffered severe abrasions to her legs after she was sucked under her father's Peloton Tread+ treadmill, her dad said Monday amid a safety warning from a federal safety regulator.  'It was pretty traumatic,' Brandon Ratliffe recounted to Good Morning America. He shared photos of his daughter, Jocelyn, that showed bruising and severe scrapes on her legs. Jocelyn was dragged under the device feet-first, her dad said. The photos come as the US Consumer Product Safety Commission warned people with young children and pets over the weekend to stop using the $4,300 treadmill after they released their own video showing a young boy being dragged under one of the machines. Luckily, he walked away from his encounter. Regulators said they needed to 'warn the public quickly of the hazard' after nearly 40 incidents have come to light of children becoming 'entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller' of the Peloton Tread+. They are investigating one death associated with the device. Scroll down for video  Jocelyn Ratliffe, 6, suffered from severe abrasions to her legs after being...
    LONG BEACH (CBSLA) — The government is warning parents and pet owners to stop using the Tread+ by Peloton immediately after one death and dozens of other incidents involving injuries to children and pets. The warning from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) comes following its release of a video that shows how quickly a rubber ball can get sucked underneath the treadmill. In the clip, a child is seen similarly getting stuck underneath the machine after trying to obtain the ball.

In March, the company’s CEO said a child died in one case. But Peloton is pushing back. It has called the warning inaccurate and misleading.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Safety regulators warned people with kids and pets Saturday to immediately stop using a treadmill made by Peloton after one child died and nearly 40 others were injured. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it received reports of children and a pet being pulled, pinned and entrapped under the rear roller of the Tread+ treadmill, leading to fractures, scrapes and the death of one child. The commission posted a video on its YouTube page of a child being pulled under the treadmill.

But the safety commission said that in at least one episode, a child was pulled under the treadmill while a parent was running on it, suggesting it can be dangerous to children even while a...
    Peloton is resisting a request from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to recall its Tread Plus treadmill, which was involved with the death of a child last month, the Washington Post is reporting tonight. At the time of the incident, the CPSC issued a statement that it was investigating. The agency is reportedly planning on issuing a consumer alert about the Tread Plus and may do so as early as Saturday, according to officials who spoke to the Post. One official added that “this doesn’t happen with other treadmills.” The Washington Post’s sources tell the paper that the CPSC is aware of “‘dozens’ of incidents involving Peloton’s treadmills, some involving pets or exercise balls and many of them resulting in serious injuries.” Bloomberg notes this this past February the CPSC received a report that a three-year-old suffered a ”significant brain injury. He was found to have tread marks on his back matching the slats of the treadmill, neck injury, and petechiae on his face, presumably from occlusion of blood flow.” Peloton commented on the report that the child...
    Singer Durrell “Tank” Babbs takes fitness seriously. The oft-shirtless R&B artist, 45, had a strict exercise regimen before the coronavirus pandemic shut down his tour — and has stuck to it while stuck at home. “The first thing I do when I wake up [is] cardio. I have a full gym in my house, so for me, cardio is very extreme,” he told Page Six Style. “I put on a compression suit — top and bottom — and then I throw on a sweatsuit and then on top of that I throw on a winter coat and I get on the treadmill. I put the incline up to 15 and I go crazy.” Babbs typically spends 45 minutes on the machine. “If it’s a good day I put the treadmill outside in the sun and sweat it out in like 80- to 90-degree heat,” he added. Babbs said he eats eggs and vegetables or vegan waffles and syrup for breakfast before his two-a-day intense workouts, which can include “at least 300 to 500” ab exercises daily. “I don’t train with other R&B...
    File image of a Peloton Tread+ Peloton Peloton CEO John Foley emailed Tread+ owners to report a child's death in connection with the treadmill. The company is urging users to keep pets and children away from the machine during use.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A child was fatally injured in an accident involving a Peloton Tread+ treadmill, according to an email from Peloton's CEO.  John Foley, Peloton's co-founder and chief executive, emailed owners of the Tread+ on March 18 to inform them of the incident. "I'm reaching out to you today because I recently learned about a tragic accident involving a child and the Tread+, resulting in, unthinkably, a death," he wrote. "While we are aware of only a small handful of incidents involving the Tread+ where children have been hurt, each one is devastating to all of us at Peloton, and our hearts go out to the families involved." Foley advised users to keep pets and children away from Peloton equipment, and store it safely when not in use.  The Tread+ is mechanically very...
    The Ministry of the Interior has bought a treadmill for the house that is now inhabited by Fernando Grande-Marlaska. The acquisition of the device, which has been tendered through the public procurement platform of the State, supposes an expense of 2,770 euros for the public coffers, as El Independiente has advanced. There was a machine of these characteristics when Marlaska came to live there in 2018 and they have proceeded to replace it when it has broken down, they have explained from the Interior department. The public contracting portal includes a minor contract that has already been resolved for the “acquisition of a treadmill for use in the Minister’s home, located in the building at Paseo de la Castellana, 5 in Madrid”. The owners of the Interior move to that floor for security reasons. The apartment is located above the premises of the Ministry of the Interior. The Grande-Marlaska department received three offers and awarded the order to Entornos Tecnológicos y de Comunicación SL, a Madrid company dedicated to the trade in machinery and office equipment. Nevertheless, what...
    UPDATE: This Flash Deal Now Has Less Than 24 Hours Remaining – 9:45 AM EST Nov 18,2020 Let’s face it, the sad reality is that it doesn’t seem like covid restrictions are going away anytime soon, and with gym requiring facemasks even if they are allowed to open, it seems like working out away from home may not be as comfortable as it used to be. That’s why I think this deal is an incredible offer for those whose fitness routine has been disrupted by Covid, or those who have been recently inspired to start exercising at home. Treadmills are the easiest way to make sure you get some cardio in for your day and are often the easiest way to start losing unwanted weight. Unfortunately, normally treadmills cost $1000’s (I have a friend who spent over $1500 on his home treadmill!!!) and are big and bulky enough to make both moving them and storing them while not in use a challenge. Enter the GYMAX Electric Folding Treadmill, the ultra-thin compact fitness running, and walking machine. The Gymax normally...
