Latest project - Gym Gains Tracker Enables the user to create multiple workout plans, using an easy to follow step by step process and then use those plans to track workouts. The app gives users notifications on when to workout and insights into how he/she is performing and progressing. A user account is required which can be set up within the app and the user can also choose to backup their data to the Gym Gains Tracker servers in the cloud.
