Mobile Edge Computing and Communication (MECC) can be deployed in close proximity with sensing devices and act as middleware between cloud and local networks. The health and fitness movement has become extremely popular recently. Endurance activities, such as marathons, triathlons, and cycling have also grown in popularity. However, with more people participating in these activities, more accidents and injuries occur-ranging from heat stroke, to heart attacks, shock, or hypoxia. All physical training activities include a risk of injury and accidents. Therefore, any research that offers a means of reducing injury risk will significantly contribute to the personal fitness field. Moreover, with the growing popularity of wearable devices and the rise of the MECC, the development and application of wearable devices that can connect to the MECC has become widespread, producing many new innovations. Although many wearable devices, such as wrist straps and smart watches, are available and able to detect individual physiological data, they cannot monitor the human body in a state of motion. Therefore, this study proposes a set of monitoring parameters for a novel wearable device connected to the MECC based on fitness management to assist fitness trainers in effective prompted strength training, and to offer timely warnings in the event of an injury risk. The data collected by the monitoring device using fuzzy theory include risk factor, body temperature, heart rate, and blood oxygen concentration. The proposed system can display in real-time the current physiological state of a wearer/user. The introduction of this device will hopefully enable trainers to immediately and effectively control and monitor the intensity of a training session, while increasing training safety, and offer crucial and immediate diagnostic information so that the correct treatment can be applied without delay in the event of injury.
