FitStar Personal Trainer is finally available on Android. The very popular video-based fitness app has been a huge hit on iOS where it received the Editors’ Choice Award, App Store Best of 2013, and Best of 2014 product.
This app is perfect for those who need some guidance on the best ways to conduct their workouts. That usually means spending a ton of dough on a personal trainer at the gym, but FitStar Personal Trainer offers something similar for a lot less money.
Personalized video sessions from NFL star Tony Gonzalez offer up coaching tips and motivation, along with instructions on exactly how to do each exercise. There are four goal-based programs: Get Strong, Get Lean, Get Moving, and Daily Dose. FitStar Personal Trainer also offers stand-alone workouts such as 10-Minute Abs and 7-Minute Workout.
Tracking your progress is key, an that’s why the app offers weekly and lifetime stats through the in-app dashboard. You will be able to see sessions completed, calories burned, and total workout time. You can track your progress from not only the Android app, but also using the web application on your desktop computer.
You can also share your session summaries and earned badges on many social channels directly from the app.
Those of you familiar with Fitbit will appreciate that the FitStar Personal Trainer syncs with your Fitbit account as well. You can also connect with popular devices and weight management apps like MyFitnessPal and Strava.
All of this costs just $8 per month or $40 per year. That’s less than what it would cost for a single personal training session.
