Health, by definition, is the overall wellbeing of condition of the body or mind. Several citizens especially the top class citizens’ live sedentary lifestyles are at the risk of obesity and other health issues attached to it. Aerobic exercises of walking, jogging, or running has been suggested and proved significant in solving the problem mentioned above. It can be prescribed by medical experts to patients that need it. The traditional means of reporting the progress of this prescription to the medical expert suffer so many limitations. Hence, the need for a system to manage exercise schedules, exercise sessions and provide accurate reports to the medical expert. This paper reports the development of a software suite consisting of a mobile application (running on a mobile phone) that manages exercise schedules for the patient, gather required data (from GPS) in the course of an exercise session and provide the data upon request and a desktop application that manages exercise session records for the medical expert, generate graphs showing trends in the exercise session and store these information for future references.
