Who do I talk to?

Current Features

  • Generate a random workout for a user.
  • Take into account the number of days per week they want to/are able to work out.
  • Muscles accounted for in the workout: chest, back, legs, triceps, biceps, shoulders, forearms, calves, abs.
  • Take into account a user's goals (Strength, Endurance, Hypertrophy.)
  • Take into account a user's preference (Free weights, selectorized equipment, or cable equipment.)
  • Take into account a user's fitness level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and modify the workout given accordingly.
  • Save routine to a file for easy access later.

Possible future features

  • Add warm-ups, cool downs, and foam rolling to make the workouts more complete.
  • Include rest and tempo into the format.
  • Allow user to input how many sets, reps, and weight for each exercise completed in order to track their progress.
  • Allow user to substitute individual exercises in their list.
  • Remember weight used for each exercise in previous workouts if the user has input them afterwards and suggest the highest weight used for each.
  • Convert to a web app or native mobile app for use on phones/tablets (maybe both, since Apple is super strict on their app acceptance policy.)
