This site is a free online tool that I coded in the Python-Flask framework. It uses a portion of the assets from BPM Rx to create a workout generator based on one upper body pulling, one upper body pushing, and one leg exercise. Each press of the main button uses a randomizer to pull independently from the different image folders. It was a lot of fun to work on, and has informed the capstone project my school team is developing. Besides completing all of the web development, I learned how to deploy the app to a paid plan on Heroku.
BPM Rx, Inc.
Launched in 2009, this exercise prescription software is used by physiotherapists, personal trainers, and chiropractors to create exercise handouts for their clients. The exercise library contains over 1300 custom illustrations for showing a client how to perform a given motion. The second version of the product is now live on BPMRx.com, and brings the ability for users to email and text the handouts directly from the software. Based on user-feedback, the newest release also allows custom text, plus saving routines, and favoriting exercises. I led all of the wire-framing and product management for this project, but the coding was carried out by a third party.
