-Peloton Interactive Inc said on Tuesday an issue that had prevented thousands of users from accessing its bike and treadmill classes had been resolved.

More than 5,000 users had reported issues with the fitness products maker’s online services earlier in the day on, a website that tracks outages by collating status reports from several sources.

The outage may have affected a larger number of users.

Peloton, whose shares were down 1.2% amid broader market weakness, did not respond to a request seeking more details on what caused the issue.

Several users had taken to Twitter to vent their frustration.

“I just spent an hour trying to get my workout in. I’m so close to a 60 day streak I’m going to lose it if I can’t get in later,” Twitter user @reneecarmela said
