The studio will host “our total body workouts, walking and running,” Fred Klein, Peloton’s chief content officer, told the Post. It will also livestream fitness classes Peloton will replace two other gyms, David Barton and Crunch, which both recently closed in the building.

Ben Birnbaum and Ben Shapiro of Newmark (NMRK) Knight Frank handled the transaction for Peloton, and Patricia Dunphy handled the deal in-house for landlord Rockrose Development. A spokeswoman and a Rockrose representative didn’t respond to requests for comment.
