Peloton plans to replace CEO John Foley and cut 2,800 jobs as it hopes to restructure its business amid waning demand, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Barry McCarthy, the former chief financial officer of Spotify and Netflix, will become CEO and president and join Peloton’s board, the report said.

The job cuts are expected to impact about 20% of Peloton’s corporate positions, but they will not affect Peloton’s instructor roster or content, according to the Journal.

A Peloton spokesperson did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

The news of Foley stepping down comes ahead of Peloton’s fiscal second-quarter results, which are set to come after the market closes on Tuesday.
