Abstract/Artist Statement

This project focuses on the development of a system to allow gym users to check on the current crowding conditions at their favorite gym. The Gym Check system is a mobile application that will allow gym users and management to see the amount of overall traffic and individual equipment availability in their gym. The Gym Check system combines usage data, machine-tracking technology, and check-in information to provide a user-friendly interface for both gym-goers and gym management. As going to the gym becomes a more prominent part of life in the United States, gyms are facing the increasing problem of overcrowding and inability of supply of equipment to keep up with demand. The ability to see what is available, what is commonly used, and how many people are around is mutually beneficial to both gym management and gym-goers. Unlike other products, this system provides real time tracking of individual pieces of equipment so that gymgoers don’t have to deal with unavailability and waiting, and gym management can manage demand for each piece of equipment. Preliminary market research, including a survey and in-depth interviews with professionals in the industry, shows that crowding and unavailability of equipment are a problem, that demand for such a product is high, and that there are definitely a significant number of people who would download the application.
