Today, Fitbit released localized versions of its award-winning fitness app, FitStar Personal Trainer, in French, German, Spanish and Portuguese, making it even easier for users around the world to reach their fitness goals. FitStar is one of the largest platforms for delivering personalized video-based exercise experiences on mobile devices. Each workout is fully customized to a person’s fitness level. By tailoring the intensity and difficulty of each move, the workouts evolve as the user progresses. This is the first time the popular exercise app, offered globally in English since 2013, is available in other languages. FitStar Personal Trainer will also be available in Chinese soon.
The app’s customized and handcrafted video workouts led by American football legend, Tony Gonzalez, will feature voiceover and on-screen text in each local language, offering a more personal and natural way to get fit. When paired with the Fitbit platform, FitStar provides a holistic fitness experience, in which users can track their daily activity with leading Fitbit devices, while also accessing a tailored FitStar exercise program designed specifically for their fitness levels.
“Our goal is to help individuals lead healthier lives by making Fitbit’s FitStar Personal Trainer as accessible and effective to as many people as possible,” said Mike Maser, Co-Founder of FitStar at Fitbit. “We recently released FitStar Personal Trainer on Android, introducing the app to an entirely new audience. Now, we are further expanding to create a fitness experience that is more personalized for our global users.”
Acquired by Fitbit last year, FitStar Personal Trainer offers two personalized sessions a week and more than a dozen stand-alone Freestyle sessions such as “7 Minute Workout” and “The FitStar 15” for free. For $7.99USD per month or $39.99USD per year, people can access unlimited customized workouts across four goal-based programs: Get Strong, Get Lean, Get Moving and Daily Dose, as well as 35+ Freestyle sessions.
FitStar Personal Trainer is available across the web, on iOS devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple Watch, and Android mobile phones. The app can be downloaded for free on the App Store and Google Play, as well as accessed on the web. For more information, please visit http://fitstar.com.
