A physiological modeling and simulation system to support fitness training in which the cardiovascular system model predicts pulsatile blood flows in response to exercise levels is presented. A circulation monitor and simulator that allow interaction of humans with health enhancement devices enable development of intelligent fitness machines. A modeling and simulation system of the human circulation is necessary to realize safe and effective machines. In order to construct a better architecture of the assisting framework, a modeling and simulation system for the human circulation for fitness work could contribute to the effectiveness of programs for rehabilitation, weight change, health enhancement, and physical strengthening.
