Logan Aldridge is set to become Peloton’s first Adaptive Training Consultant and future Peloton Instructor, the company announced on Friday.
Peloton hopes to introduce adaptive classes and release product updates in future.
“Creating accessible fitness solutions for ALL abilities and empowering people to pursue their potential has been my primary focus since my arm was amputated at the age of 13,” Aldridge wrote on Instagram announcing his new position.
“Now, I have the opportunity to join the community that has created the most immersive and accessible fitness experience for their members expanding their offerings to ALL people of ALL abilities.”
Peloton offers instructor-led at-home workout classes and is used by millions around the world.
Logan Aldridge is the Co-founder and Director of Training at the Adaptive Training Academy, which provides education and guidance to enable accessible and inclusive fitness training for everyone.
He was also crowned the 3rd Fittest Man on Earth (Upper Extremity) following his performance at the 2021 CrossFit Games.
Additionally, Aldridge has also invented a handful of adaptive fitness equipment such as the Aldridge Arm, a harness that enables upper extremity athletes to perform deadlifts. He pioneered adaptive training and awareness in the CrossFit space, and has helped the sport become more accessible as part of the core team that helped introduce Adaptive divisions to the CrossFit Open and CrossFit Games.
“[…] we are thrilled for Logan to bring his unique perspective to how we can empower our Members and community with tools and resources” Peloton wrote. In addition to helping Peloton define their accessibility offering, Aldridge is set to become an on-camera instructor in the future.
“I hope that in ten years from now, if you’re someone living with a permanent impairment of any sort and you have aspirations or the desire to be a professional athlete in whatever sport […] you see a path to that and there is a platform for you and there’s a real opportunity,” Aldridge told BOXROX during an earlier interview.
