      Fitness start-up Peloton plans to raise up to $1.3bn (£1.1bn) in an initial public offering, the latest loss-making firm gearing up for its market debut.

      The US company sells expensive stationary bikes and provides on-demand workout sessions.

      Peloton said it would price shares at up to $29, giving it a potential market valuation of more than $8.2bn.

      The planned Nasdaq listing follows disappointing debuts from Uber and Lyft.

      Founded in 2012, the New York-based company sells fitness equipment - with bikes priced at around $2,000 - fitted with touchscreens.

      Users then purchase a subscription to access classes streamed live and on-demand. The firm said it has more than 1.4 million members.

      “On the most basic level, Peloton sells happiness,” founder John Foley previously said.

      In a regulatory filing, the firm said it plans to offer 46 million shares, priced between $26 and $29 per share. That would give the company a market value of up to $8.2bn.

      Peloton's most recent earnings report showed a rise in revenues but the company fell short of turning a profit.

      For the year ended 30 June, revenues more than doubled to $915m while its net loss widened $195.6m from $47.9m.

      The planned listing comes on the heels of several high-profile US stock debuts.

      Uber and Lyft both went public this year but drew criticism over their heavy losses.

      WeWork's stock market debut - one of the most hotly anticipated financial events of the year - is also in doubt.

      The company rents office space for the long-term, subletting that space to firms and individuals on more flexible lease terms.

    •   WeWork stock market debut in doubt

      SoftBank, the Japanese investment firm that owns about 30% of WeWork, has reportedly urged the property company to drop its flotation plans.

      The pressure follows signs that outside investors do not value the much-hyped firm as highly as SoftBank did when it invested last year.
