Fitstar by Fitbit – keeps you on track


Fitstar by Fitbit is a new paid app that can be used on iOS, Android or via a browser to harness the data collected by a Fitbit.

Fitstar by Fitbit helps Fitbit users set and achieve fitness goals. There is more robust guidance and coaching. Plus, it has new “human” trainers to choose from, an expanded library of exercises, customisable music, and a refreshed look.

The app uses feedback to ensure each routine is built to match the user's fitness level. It features four comprehensive exercise programmes with hundreds of moves, as well as dozens of Freestyle sessions such as “10-Minute Abs” and “Traveller 10.” Fitstar data shows 85% who use Fitstar Personal Trainer for at least five sessions report an increase in strength.

Mike Maser, co-founder and vice-president of Fitstar by Fitbit, said, “Since joining the Fitbit family in 2014, we’ve known the marriage of wearables and our dynamic video workouts would lead to more effective and relevant fitness programmes. The redesigned Fitstar Personal Trainer app takes the next step in realising this vision.”

The redesigned Fitstar Personal Trainer app experience includes:

  • Recommended workouts: Fitstar will recommend workouts based on your daily activity tracked with a Fitbit device in the new “Guidance” tab.
  • Two certified personal trainers: Adrian or Lea will guide you on your fitness journey. 
  • Fitstar Radio: Workout soundtrack can be personalised with Fitstar Radio.
  • New look and feel: New, redesigned look and feel.
  • More moves: Expanded library of new body weight and cardio exercises for every fitness level.

Fitstar Personal Trainer is available worldwide today in English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. The app is accessible via Wi-Fi on iOS devices, Android phones, and online; it also works with Chromecast and Airplay.

To help Aussies kickstart 2017 with healthy intentions, Fitbit is offering a FREE 90 day Fitstar Premium subscription until April 30.Usual app cost is A$12.99 per month or A$62.99 per annum.
