Melissa Perlman takes her training seriously. 

The 39-year-old Delray Beach resident — a Spanish River High School graduate, former collegiate cross country and track star, and two-time World Maccabiah Games competitor — is a sub-three-hour marathoner and one of Palm Beach County’s top distance runners. 

So after she and her boyfriend, Mark Burns, moved out of their rental apartment and bought a house together last fall, they treated themselves to a state-of-the-art housewarming gift: a Peloton Tread+ treadmill.

“I wanted the Peloton Tread+ specifically because of the unique running tread, which reminds me of the Woodway treadmill — the top-of-the-line machine that many professional runners use,” she explained. “I also like having the ability to participate in Peloton’s different virtual fitness classes — running, boot camp, stretch, yoga, etc. — when I need a distraction or changeup in my routine. Mark also really enjoys taking the classes to get in his cardio.”
