Once the software update hits the treadmill, customers will be prompted to activate the feature by creating a four-digit passcode.
After creating the passcode, the belt on the Tread+ will automatically lock after 45 seconds of inactivity outside of a class, or after the Tread+ wakes from sleep or restart, the company wrote on its website.
To unlock the belt, customers will have to reenter the code.
"Tread Lock is an important feature to ensure that your Tread+ is safer than ever before. You will be required to set up Tread Lock," Peloton said.
