An interesting look at a newish trend in fitness, with home equipment that is connected to a Netflix-like library. You get on-demand classes but in the convenience of your own home. I don't know, is this motivating? I'm not sure I would enjoy a run on a treadmill regardless of if it were connected to a class.
