Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll test the functionality of a TensforFlow.js based fitness assistant and assess its capabilities of pose estimation for workout sessions. You’ll move data from a PoseNet model to a TensorFlow.js inference function that can recognize a workout type and add delays to prevent unnecessary logging duplication. You’ll then utilize TensorFlow.js’s prediction functionalities to get prediction results for your recognized workouts, pick top scores, and return the recognized workout type. Finally, you’ll use Material UI and React.JS to display a complete workout history to the user.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.

project author

Andrej Baranovskij
Andrej Baranovskij is a TensorFlow-certified developer who runs his own machine learning startup company Katana ML. Andrej is responsible for building machine learning products for enterprise operations automation. Previously, he spent 15 years working with Oracle technology and building various enterprise systems across the globe. His software development experience allows to bridge a gap between machine learning and software development.


This liveProject is for both web developers and machine learning engineers. Web developers experienced with JavaScript will learn how to integrate TensorFlow into their applications, while ML engineers will be interested in developing their skills for user interfaces.

  • Basics of web development with HTML/JavaScript

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn how to prepare data, build a machine learning model, and save it for reuse. All of this will be done with JavaScript in the browser.

  • Reusing code for PoseNet generated human pose data collection
  • Running the inference and getting top result by classification score
  • Updating data stored in local storage with info about workout type
  • Adding solution to prevent result data noise
  • Implementing dialog to display workout data history
  • Implementing logic to reset the data
