Welcome to wger Workout Manager’s documentation!

wger is a free, open source web application that manages your exercises and personal workouts, weight and nutrition. It can also be used as a simple gym management utility, providing different administrative roles (trainer, manager, etc.). It offers a REST API as well, for easy integration with other projects and tools. It is written with python/django and uses jQuery and some D3js for charts.
