Free/Open Source Workout/Fitness Software for Linux

Filed under
Software

Since I have a healthy goal for 2009, I’ve been looking for a program that can help me accomplish my objective. I found several workout/fitness desktop applications for my Linux box, but very few have satisfied my needs.

PyTrainer
Though this software is originally made for cyclist, it can be used for other resistance training like running, swimming, etc. Pytrainer is written in Python programming language and uses the GTK library for its graphical user interface. PyTrainer works with supported GPS fitness devices and is able to generate detailed graphics and statistics with the GPS data. Some of its main features are:

* Multilingual Support
* Googlemaps integration to display GPS tracks
* Heart rate support
* Viewer and editor of waypoints
* System of plugins for multiple GPS devices
* System of extensions for future hacks
