With a rapidly increasing elderly population, it is required to offer a safe and optimal exercise environment for them to keep themselves healthy. In this paper, we present an Internet-based cycle ergometer system that supports an appropriate personal fitness process for individual elderly persons. Because there are great individual differences for each elderly person when they perform a cycle ergometer exercise, and their physical activities vary slightly from day to day, it is necessary to support appropriate workload control continuously. To achieve high availability and real time execution assistance, Internet technology has been employed. By distributing the system into different working units and implementing those units at different places on the Internet, the system gained great flexibility and efficiency. It is conceivable for each person to continuously exercise by using our proposed system at any time and at any possible place.
