The Exercise View is an editable spreadsheet showing a days exercise.

Move around the spreadsheet using the arrow keys, insert, delete, cut, copy, paste and move lines as needed.

The currently selected cell is indicated by a white rectangle:

To edit the current cell press Enter, or simply start typing to replace its contents. You can also start editing by double clicking on a specific cell.


  1. For exercises in the database the calorie values are calculated for you.
  2. The calculated calories depend on your last recorded body weight, changing your body weight will result in recalculation of these values. If no weight value has been recorded a value of 150lb will be used.
  3. The spreadsheet colors can be customized in the Options Dialog ( toolbar button).
  4. You can copy exercise lines between days by copying to the clipboard, moving to the new date (using ) and pasting.
  5. To copy a whole day do the following: Select all lines (Ctrl A), copy to the clipboard (Ctrl C), move to the new date and paste (Ctrl V).
  6. You can copy lines for use in other applications.
  7. The application comes with an exercise database of approximately 200 exercises.


There are two ways of entering exercise information onto the spreadsheet:

  1. Directly entering the values into cells on the spreadsheet
  2. Using the Exercise Finder panel to find the exercise and the Quantity selector to enter the duration.

Entering Exercises Directly onto the Spreadsheet

When you edit a exercise cell a dropdown list of possible exercises is displayed:

The exercises shown in this dropdown vary as follows:

The the list of matching exercises is updated as you type.

Once your have found the exercise you are looking for, select it by using the up/down arrow keys and press Enter or Tab.

If you cannot find the exercise in the database select the '---Quick Entry---' to manually type the calorie value (without creating a new exercise definition) or select the '---New Exercise ---' entry to create a new exercise definition.

For exercises chosen from the database the calories values will be calculated for you from the duration of the exercise and your current body weight. The calorie values can however be overridden by manually editing the Calorie field. Note that any changes to the exercise duration (Minutes field) will recalculate the calories, overwriting any manual change to the calories.

For exercises used frequently we recommend you create new Exercise definitions, this way the calories will be calculated for you each time you log an entry.

Create 'Routines' of commonly performed exercises to speed entry. Add the exercises to the log in the usual way then multi-select the lines and right click to show the context menu, choose the 'Make Routine from selected...' item to open the Routine Dialog:

Routines can be added to the log by selecting from the Exercise finder panel (Routines tab), or right clicking and selecting the Insert Routine... option.


  1. The exercise names in the dropdown list are appended with a '+' character if they have been user added and a '*' character if they have been user modified.

Entering Exercise Duration Directly onto the Spreadsheet:

Simply type the number of minutes into the cell.

Once you have entered the quantity press Enter or Tab to save the value and recalculate the calories..


Using the Exercise Finder Panel

The exercise finder panel allows you to select exercises from the full list of exercises, from exercises matching a search condition or from the exercises you've used on previous days.


The Search tab acts like the dropdown exercise list as described above, except that it is always visible and multiple selections are possible.

The Previous tab shows exercises from a previous date, usually the previous day. You can change the date shown using the calendar buttons at the top of the panel.

To add a exercise from either of these tabs first select it and then press Enter or click the Add button (you can also double click it).

If the check box is ticked then the Quantity Selector dialog will be invoked, otherwise the selected exercise(s) will be added to the spreadsheet at the current cursor location with zero duration.


The Quantity Selector Dialog shows the previous value entered for the given exercise and allows you to enter a new value, using basic arithmetic calculations if required.


Quick Summary

The Quick Summary is divided into two panels:

Today's Calories Shows the Net (Remaining) calories after taking into account your metabolism, exercise, diet plan and food intake.
Exercise History Shows a side by side bar chart of exercise calories and minutes for the last 14 days.


  1. Move the mouse pointer over the bars in the barchart to see the actual values.
  2. You can hide the Quick summary panel by pressing the button.
  3. You can Hide/Show the Quick summary panel by pressing the button .
