Both of us have been trying to start working out more as a new-year resolution and found that we needed a way to keep track of what we have been doing during a gym session. This need, as well as a desire to dip our toes into Android app development, spurred us to make our own Gymspiration.
What it does
Gymspiration is an Android application that keeps records of all the different exercises you can do at the gym. This information includes the number of sets / reps and the last recorded weight you performed the exercise at.
How we built it
We built this app through Android Studio.
Challenges we ran into
Both of us were unfamiliar with Android Studio and how to code an application in general, so there was a significant amount of overhead for both of us.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
That app development is a lot harder than we initially anticipated, but at the same time just as rewarding as we thought when something compiled correctly.
What's next for Gymspiration
Moving forward, we plan to implement adding new exercises as workout plans change and also grouping exercises together into 'days' for easier checking in the gym.
