Fitness Professionals have been managing their records in traditional ways which requires logbook to manage their clients. They write down the workouts and monitor progress of client through pen, paper and excel spread sheets. The major problem in this way of handling data is that trainer has to carry a notebook which fills up quickly and become difficult to keep safe for future purposes.
In the mobile savvy era, these fitness training professionals carries Smartphone everywhere. The main idea of the client company was - why not use mobiles to manage records, instead of paper notebook.

This is another screen which contains critical information from a trainer’s perspective. Whenever a trainer meets new clients, trainer must get the client fill physical activity readiness questioner.
