The face-off-style musical platform will be collaborating with the stationery bike company to bring Peloton Verzuz to people's homes as they celebrate the music of iconic artists in friendly competitions.

"You need music to work out," Timbaland — who created Verzuz with Swizz Beatz — tells PEOPLE. "I feel like music is the key to the soul."

"Imagine having that playlist of that Verzuz and you're hearing your favorite songs from those artists while you're going on your journey," adds Beatz, 42.

In a video provided to PEOPLE, the two creators break down why the Peloton Verzuz collab just makes sense.

"I feel that the parallel lines with Verzuz and Peloton are the same. When you're in the zone, the energy is there," says Swizz Beatz in the clip.

"Music and fitness are like brothers and sisters," adds Timbaland.
