Fitness enthusiasts can track their progress and exercise stats with this helpful bot

The perfect workout buddy has finally arrived. It will not yell at you during your off days or prevent you from progress. Instead, it is a Facebook Messenger Bot that goes by the name Gymbot and is easily accessible during any workout. This Messenger Bot lacks any fancy gimmicks, which makes keeping track of any workout easy.

To use Gymbot, any Facebook user only has to type “hi” to Facebook Messenger. Then, all they have to do is write simple commands such as “Biceps 15/11/13.” This lets the robot know whether or not it is a cardio or strength training exercise. Biceps is strength training, so the numbers stand for “weight/repetitions/number of sets.” For cardio, it is recorded by “duration/distance/calories.”
