Users often use fitness related apps on their mobile devices to manage their workouts and to store and share information about completed workouts. Managing workouts via such apps requires performing several manual tasks, such as setting various parameters, starting and stopping counters, etc. The tedium and burden of performing these tasks manually can take the user’s focus away from the workout. Further, the user can experience technical difficulties with the apps or their device which can take the attention away from the workout routine. This disclosure describes techniques to initiate and manage workouts automatically using a virtual assistant on a user device such as a smartphone.
