As a fan of the gym, as well as a data nerd, I like to keep records of my weightlifting history. It occurred to me that keeping aggregated information would allow me to run analytics and reports on my lifting history, to chart my progress and get another perspective on how well I was doing. I initially built a web-based tool that analyzed 6 months of data, which showed me through charts which exercises gave me the highest strength gains, and inspired me to change my routine.
I have built prototypes since then of an iOS version that allows users to track their workouts, and get automated recommendations and analytics, a feature that I think still does not show itself well in the multitude of fitness apps out there.
