Peloton will offer its connected fitness gear through Dick’s Sporting Goods. The fitness gear and some accessories will be available in more than 100 Dick’s retail locations in the US. Peloton says Dick’s will be the only retailer that offers this selection of its hardware outside of its own online and physical stores. The company announced plans in August to lay off members of its distribution team and rely entirely on third-party companies for deliveries and setting up equipment. The partnership is part of Peloton’s strategy to accelerate growth and increase revenue in the wake of dismal earnings results in the aftermath of the company’s disappointing results. The Peloton Bike rentals are now available in 48 states and will be expanded to 48 states this month in the U.S. . . .
