    Abstract

    For a new gym user, a personal trainer could prove vital to keep the user motivated, and a set plan with a challenging workout should influence their clients to continue to train. They are also able to provide guidance to minimise the risk of injuries, but there are disadvantages which include the availability of the personal trainer – the client has to fit in with their schedule. Additionally the cost of personal trainers varies but can be steep, as opposed to an application which would result in a significant cost saving.
    This mobile application, designed using Eclipse with the Android SDK for the Android platform, will focus on providing a gym workout plan, similar to that offered by a personal trainer, for a person based on specific goals they hope to achieve from going to the gym. An algorithm will be designed by taking into account their age, gender and goals to specify starting equipment weight to use for each exercise. Based on users’ ratings on completion of each exercise, another algorithm will calculate an appropriate weight for the next time the exercise is done to provide a challenge for the user.
