The project is based around tracking workout/exercise activities of people in the gym, providing them with historical tracking and progress monitoring on their activity in the gym/fitness center. The solution is part hardware and part software. The hardware part is responsible of monitoring the actual workout, and the software part consists of a web platform and smartphone apps to allow user access to their historical data and other planned features.
We install our system as an add-on on existing gym machines. Our initial focus is on selectorized strength training machines for which a proof of concept has been developed and a working prototype is being built at the moment. The system consists of multiple parts/sensors to identify user, identify selected weight, identify exercise being performed and counting training repetitions and sets.
