Nowadays, interest in health care is increasing due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), and a lot of people are doing home training as there are more difficulties in using fitness centers and public facilities that are used together. In this paper, we propose a personalized exercise recommendation algorithm using personalized propensity information to provide more accurate and meaningful exercise recommendation to home training users. Thus, we classify the data according to the criteria for obesity with a k-nearest neighbor algorithm using personal information that can represent individuals, such as eating habits information and physical conditions. Furthermore, we differentiate the exercise dataset by the level of exercise activities. Based on the neighborhood information of each dataset, we provide personalized exercise recommendations to users through a dimensionality reduction algorithm (SVD) among model-based collaborative filtering methods.
Therefore, we can solve the problem of data sparsity and scalability of memory-based collaborative filtering recommendation techniques and we verify the accuracy and performance of the proposed algorithms.
