Thousand Oaks, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2006
Acrocat Software, LLC has released PDAbs, a Windows/Mac OS X and Palm OS application that makes it easy and fun for individuals, families, and personal trainers to organize their fitness goals and results. Design your custom workout on your Palm OS PDA, bring your PDA with you to the gym, and simply check off the exercises as you complete them.
You can start using PDAbs immediately. The program has more than 150 workout routines and exercises pre-programmed, so setting up your exercise routine takes only a few minutes. With one tap of the stylus, you're ready to enter a workout, or plan future workout routines. It's easy to sort and view your workouts by person or client, by type, or by date.
In PDAbs' strength/resistance section, you set up your strength workouts, and record seat position and sets. The cardio/aerobic section lets you track the category, time, distance, heart rate, and course that you run, bike, step, or walk. The measurements section allows you to measure your biceps, calves, waist, and other vital targets. The weight section tracks your body weight over time, as well as your blood pressure, cholesterol, maximum and resting heart rates, and more. There's even a payments section so personal trainers can set up client profiles and maintain their billing information.
PDAbs gives you total flexibility when designing or monitoring your workouts. Simply tap the "weight" or "reps" column to change your numbers. Copy a routine from one day to another, and change the order of the exercises. You can even set up additional seat positions for each exercise machine.
With PDAbs you will calculate information for each family member, team member, or client. You can calculate each person's target heart rate range, and record everybody's age, weight, goals, and health considerations. Instead of bringing a notebook or clipboard to the gym, you will use your PDA to track your progress, to then print your workout sessions when you get home or back to the office.
PDAbs' optional Desktop Component gives you the power to transfer your workout data to your Windows or Macintosh OS X computer so you can sort, view, and print your workouts. Simply HotSync your Palm Pilot with your Windows or Macintosh computer, and PDAbs will automatically ensure that the latest information is on both computers. Using the Desktop Component you will instantly create, display, and print six types of stunning graphics, to illustrate how your workouts are progressing. You can export your workout data to text, Excel, PDF files or HTML pages so you can share them with the workout team. The Desktop Component lets you conserve your PDA's limited memory by archiving your old workout data on your desktop. And if your handheld's batteries run out, it is not a problem; just restore your exercise data from the Desktop Component.
Whether you are an individual who is looking for a way to optimize your workout routine with minimal effort, a coach who needs an effortless way to keep track of your team's fitness level, or a fitness trainer who seeks to boost your clients' motivation by giving them encouraging graphs and charts of their progress, PDAbs has the tools that you need.
PDAbs runs on Palm OS 3.1 and up. The PDAbs Desktop Component will work on Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003 or Macintosh OS X.
A single-computer license costs $39.95(US), includes both the Palm OS and Windows or Macintosh versions, and provides you with a complete tracking system for yourself as well as your family, team, or clients. The Windows-only version and the Palm OS-only version are available individually for $25.00 each. You can download a free 15-day trial version from the company's web site at http://www.acrocat.com/PDAbs/.
