The Fitness Analyst

The Fitness Analyst® has been the backbone of client service programs at nearly 4,000 wellness centers, commercial gyms, and personal training studios in 22 countries for over 20 years. It is no exaggeration to say that more coaches have proven the value of their training with the Analyst than any other tool ever created. In fact, BSDI won Fitness Management Magazine's coveted "Nova7" award for "Best Computerized Technology Vendor" every year the Nova7 was given. In some years, we won more votes from fitness professionals than all other vendors put together!

The Analyst has a simple goal: to document a client's change over time and progress towards their goals using scientifically valid fitness assessments and related biometrics. We provide the broadest range of fitness tests and population norms ever compiled into one system. To make it easy for coaches and trainers, we wrap it all up in BSDI's trademark "folder and page" user interface and include plenty of context-sensitive help.

The Fitness Analyst is the essential resource for any health or wellness facility needing to communicate a strong, professional image.

If you need a client training solution that runs on local hardware and have the expertise to run a local database, the Fitness Analyst remains the most sophisticated fitness assessment software ever created. The Analyst is compatible with any version of Windows except Windows 8.0 (8.1 is fine).

Even though the Fitness Analyst is Windows software and our development energies have moved to the web, BSDI will continue to support the Fitness Analyst for the foreseeable future. Please note, however, that no further releases to the package are planned and that the ACSM questionnaire uses the criteria from the sixth edition. If you are a current user and would like to expand your installation you can still do so! Please contact sales at (908) 832-2691.
