FitStar has announced the release of FitStar Personal Trainer on Android devices in the United States and Canada. Previously released on iOS, the fitness app features football star Tony Gonzalez, and offers video-guided exercise sessions users can customize (in terms of intensity and difficulty) to match their fitness level.
FitStar Personal Trainer offers four goal-based programs: Get Strong, Get Lean, Get Moving and Daily Dose, as well as Freestyle sessions such as 10 Minute Abs and 7 Minute Workout, among others.
The app tracks a user’s completed sessions, estimated calories burned and time spent exercising (presented as either weekly or lifetime stats), and rewards users with badges as they complete specific achievements. Users can share these badges, as well as their ‘session summaries’ with others on social media.
In a statement, Dave Grijalva, co-founder of FitStar, commented:
We designed FitStar Personal Trainer to inspire people to live healthier lives. FitStar for Android has been a top priority for us for some time—it is actually the number one request we get from our users. We knew it had to be the highest quality experience we could provide, so we started from scratch to create something that feels totally at home on the Android platform. Now a whole new audience can use FitStar’s groundbreaking, adaptive training technology to reach their fitness goals.
FitStar was acquired by Fitbit in March 2015, and integrates with Fitbit’s platform. The app offers two personalized sessions and a selection of Freestyle sessions for free each week, while unlimited access to the platform is available for $7.99 per month or $39.99 per year.
FitStar Personal Trainer is now available to download for free on Google Play. The app will launch for Android users in additional countries in the future.
