The body tracking feature on the Peloton Guide is called Movement Tracker. Movement Tracking keeps track of whether or not you are performing the movement that is instructed during the class. It’s okay if your form is not perfect or if you’re not as fast as the instructor - the important thing is that you show up and keep moving!
What is Movement Tracker?
Movement Tracker allows you to keep up with Peloton instructors by tracking your movements, from bicep curls to squats, keeping you motivated to finish your workout.
In Made for Movement tracker classes, you will see the Movement tracker symbol (Figure 1), which will fill up as you complete the time-based strength exercises in the workout.
Powered by machine learning, Movement Tracker is exclusive to Peloton Guide and is available on hundreds of strength classes. New movements and class types are added regularly.
Peloton Guide also offers Rep Tracking Classes. Learn more here.
Movement Tracker Troubleshooting
If you are experiencing issues with Movement Tracking on your Peloton Guide, please consider the criteria below when troubleshooting the Movement Tracking feature:
- Your camera must be enabled for the Movement Tracking feature to work.
- Movement Tracking is not intended to count reps and does not offer form correction.
- Make sure you are taking a class that is compatible with Movement Tracker.
- Poor lighting can cause the camera to have a hard time detecting body movement.
- Avoid light sources directly facing the camera like lamps or windows.
- Avoid wearing clothing that may blend in with your background to ensure the Guide’s camera can accurately track your movements.
- We recommend placing the Peloton Guide in a clear, well lit space.
- Make sure you are taking a class with the Movement Tracker functionality.
- Make sure you are within the camera detection frame.
- Avoid standing too close or too far away from the camera.
- We recommend staying within 6.5 feet of the camera for optimal tracking.
- Make sure your camera is angled toward your workout space.
- Poor camera angles can occur if the Peloton Guide is placed too high or too low or is lopsided.
- We recommend Members place the Peloton Guide 3 to 6 feet from the ground by either mounting it on top of an anchored TV or on a stable flat surface.
- If space allows for it, try setting up your mat sideways (90°) in the frame at the beginning of class for the best Movement Tracking experience.
- Floor exercises tend to work better when your side is facing the camera.
- Standing/kneeling exercises tend to work better when facing the camera directly.
- Movement Tracking is only compatible with one person taking a class at a time.
If you’re still experiencing issues, recalibrate the Movement Tracking feature by navigating to Settings > Movement Tracker > Setup Movement Tracker.
