The study mainly focused on improving the gym information management for both the customers and the gym staff members. It is known that exercise is important. Exercise has a great impact in the body as it has all sorts of benefits. Physical activities are very helpful not only on making people fit but also on improving one’s personality. If they have a healthy body, they can be productive in daily life. The methodologies used in collecting the data included reading existing literature about information management and communication systems, use of questionnaires which included interviewing gym managers for example the management of the gym at grand global hotel. Using the above mentioned methods, we found out that the gym used both manual based platforms and computer based technologies to store information about the customers. The manual based communication used was characterized by hard paper copies to register customers who have attended the gym session and tick alongside their names. The computer based technological platforms for gym related issues communication included social media platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp for example you can contact the gym using their WhatsApp number to make inquiries. The proposed system was designed using data and process models which included a class diagrams, sequence diagrams and use case diagrams. The final project implementation which was aided with WAMP software tool, WAMP is a package of independently-created programs installed on computers that use a Microsoft Windows operating system. The system was developed to run on Apache, MySQL and one of PHP, Perl or Python. PHP is used for the server programming which is basically queries used to link the website to the database. The Gym Information Management System was tested using various test methods for example; user testing, acceptance testing and integration testing. To provide a good quality of service to people, fitness gym should have an organized management system that will provide convenience to their staff to perform their work more efficiently. The proposed system will give the list of exercises and it will keep records of gym members, attendance of gym employees, inventory and the payment of bills of the customers. This helps in monitoring daily activities in the gym.
