*Tone when presenting: Passionate & Angry*

The Quick Pitch: 

NordicTrack, once a very recognized brand for at-home workout equipment, now lives in the shadows of Peloton. 

We explore the at-home workout category to understand where NordicTrack can jump back into the race.

What I did: 

  • Deep-dive into the social conversation surrounding the at-home workout category  

  • One-on-one interviews

  • Survey to understand NordicTrack Brand Recognition  

  • Presentation development


Developed in 1975 in Chaska, MN by Edward Pauls, who wanted

to create a ski machine to avoid training in freezing temperatures.

Among the Competition

NordicTrack is being forgotten:
  • 67% of the respondents chose Peloton as the best brand for at-home workout equipment

  • NordicTrack is not the only brand falling behind the current trend of Peloton

  • People feel as if NordicTrack is a want-to-be Peloton


The Category's Gone Soft

Once a leader of innovation in the at-home workout category, NordicTrack is now perceived as a company "playing catch up" to competitors like Peloton, who focus on a boutique, social, "lifestyle" fitness experience.

These are common words people use to describe the at-home workout category 

NordicTrack is getting lost in the noise of negative perceptions that reflect this new age of at-home workout programs


Social Convo

*Survey information*

Before Peloton, there was NordicTrack. 

It's time to stop chasing clout and re-start training with the silent grinders.
