dc.description.abstractIn an effort to facilitate safe and affective workout programs, fitness centers are looking both to customers and leading experts on how to design workout systems. One such industry leader is Curves International. This thesis outlines the design on a networked, embedded controller for implementing a personalized workout built from the Curves circuit of discrete hydraulic exercise machines. The design provides immediate user feedback, allowing users to evaluate their exercise goals. Users also benefit from individual workout reports documenting each workout session with statistics from each machine in the circuit. Participants became familiar with the system over a two month testing period in a workout facility. This thesis includes their experience and opinion of the efficiency of the network controllers and user interface.en
