Exercise Ordering & Numbers

Choosing and configuring how exercise videos are ordered and numbers are attached to videos on your displays

Updated over a week ago

CloudFit modules that display exercise videos on your displays have options to choose how the exercises are laid out and also what the automatic number label (in the top left corner of the video) will look like.

This allows you to better match the layout of your studio floor and/or the style of your workout. For example, if you are doing a large circuit where people move around the room you could choose one ordering mode, or if exercises should be grouped into twos such as in a "You Go I Go" (YGIG) type format.

The following modules can have their Exercise Ordering & Numbers configured:


Ordering Modes

There are 3 ordering modes: Horizontal, Vertical and Loop. The exercise numbering follows the ordering mode.

Horizontal

Horizontal ordering mode moves across the row first and when it reaches the end, it moves to the next row and continues on. Once one screen is filled with exercises, it moves onto the next screen and starts the process again.

Vertical

Vertical ordering mode moves down the first column first and when it reaches the end, it moves to the next column and continues on. Once one screen is filled with exercises, it moves onto the next screen and starts the process again.

Loop

Loop ordering creates a large single loop across all displays. This ordering moves across the first row and when it reaches the end, it will move onto the first row of the next screen. Once the entire first row is filled up across all screens, it will shift downward to the next row and return back the other direction. This creates a loop that is suitable for circuit style workouts.

Number Modes

You will notice that in the examples above, the numbering in the top left corner of each exercise follows a straightforward sequence (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) that tracks the ordering mode. In addition to exercise ordering, it's possible to configure the style of these exercise number labels. There are 3 main modes: Sequential, Hidden and Grouped.

Note: when adding exercises to your modules, it's also possible to override the exercise number to customize it with anything you like. Any overridden exercise number will take priority over the number modes chosen here.

Sequential

This is the default mode and is a simple incrementing number: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. All the examples above use this mode.

Hidden

This is also quite straightforward and will simply hide all number labels.

Grouped

Grouped exercise numbering lets you choose to group exercises together and use a combination label (such as A1, A2) to represent the exercise number and group.

First, decide what kind of combination label you would like, there are 4 to choose from:

  • A1, A2, B1, B2 (Letter = Group, Number = Exercise within Group)

  • 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B (Number = Group, Letter = Exercise within Group)

  • 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2 (First Number = Group, Second Number = Exercise within Group)

  • 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2 ((First Number = Group, Second Number = Exercise within Group)

Next, choose a group size, which can range from 2 through 10. This will decide when the group number switches over.

Here are some examples of how numbering would look for different groups and labels:

Group Size

A1, A2 label type

1.1, 1.2 label type

2

A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2...

1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2...

3

A1, A2, A3,

B1, B2, B3...

1.1, 1.2, 1.3,

2.1, 2.2, 2.3...

4

A1, A2, A3, A4,

B1, B2, B3, B4...

1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4,

2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4...

5

A1, A2, A3, A4, A5,

B1, B2, B3, B4, B5

1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5,

2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

Here are two practical examples of how this can work.

Vertical ordering, with A1, A2 style labels in groups of 2. This enables pairs of exercises vertically (A1, A2 in the first column, B1, B2 in the second column and so on).

Horizontal ordering, with A1, A2 style labels in groups of 4. This enables the top row to be a group of 4 exercises and the bottom row to be another group of 4 exercises.
