Abstract: While people claim that technology leads to sedentary life style, technology also opens the door for all kinds of health-related gadgets. This project sets out to develop such an e-fitness gadget and its complementary sub-systems. We term this system SelFit. Chapter 4 of this report details the idea generation and conceptual design of this personal e-fitness coaching system for physical fitness training. SelFit is conceived as a contactless smart card based system, which aims to physically and psychologically support user’s fitness training program. SelFit can act as a virtual personal tutor to coach user, and plays a role of virtual training partner to give support and motivation throughout the training period. SelFit is equipped with various features, which improve user’s exercising experience and make physical training more interesting. Furthermore, SelFit is a smart system that can help to enhance the efficiency and convenience of the training centre with RFID technology. It can perform the functions of access control and e-payment. Chapter 5, 6 and 7 of this report document the SelFit system analysis, design process and considerations using Use Case Diagram and Structured Analysis and Design Technique (SADT). A waterfall system development life cycle model is followed to handle the complexity of this development work. The complete SelFit system is presented in a Three Tier Model, namely the Presentation Tier of S-Coach, S-Reader and web-interface; the Logic Tier of a Host Computer and the complementary Data Tier of a SelFit database. This conceptual study demonstrates the feasibility as well as a sound basis for the physical development of the SelFit system.
