Meet Lea


Lea Rouse is a Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, Workplace Wellness Specialist and the owner of Le’ola Wellness. Her goal is to help her clients find the joy in health through creative and tailored plans. Born and raised in Hawaii, Lea believes that true health must come in an organic way – by falling in love with the types of movement and food that work best for your body. Lea has spent 15 years helping Bay Area clients get fit with in-home training, and personalized nutrition plans. She also works with Silicon Valley companies to build workplace wellness programs that emphasize health education and nutritious food programs. Lea also shares her expertise through video; in addition to being a lead Trainer for the Fitstar by Fitbit app, she is also the resident wellness expert for Joyus.com.

Lea is a Certified Nutrition Consultant (C.N.C), as well as an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. She received a Bachelors of Arts in Marketing Communications from Portland State University.
When not with her clients, you can find Lea running the hills of San Francisco, dancing hula, taste-testing new recipes with local chefs or leading fitness adventure trips on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Meet Adrian


Adrian Richardson is a bootcamp instructor, personal trainer, and life coach based in Oakland, California. He believes fitness is important for physical and mental well-being, as well as for longevity and improved quality of life. First introduced to strength training through three tours of duty in Iraq serving our military, Adrian discovered that physical and mental health were critical elements to a successful mission. Through his own training, he developed a passion for helping others and started working with his fellow soldiers, coaching them to pass their critical physical fitness requirements on deployment. Watching his peers achieve their own success and reach their personal fitness goals with his help, Adrian was inspired to do more. After his last tour ended, Adrian decided to make fitness and coaching his life’s work.

He is a NSCA, NPTI, and TRX Certified Personal Trainer, and received his Bachelors of Science in Economics from University of California, Irvine. Adrian is a lead trainer for the Fitstar by Fitbit app, and you can find him racing obstacle courses, snowboarding, and mountain biking when he’s not helping his clients get and stay in great shape.

So, would you like to get moving with Lea or Adrian today? Who motivates you more?

Whether you want to Get Strong with Lea, Get Lean with Adrian, Get Moving with Lea, or get a Daily Dose of fitness with Adrian, the new Fitstar Personal Trainer experience lets you swap between trainers as you see fit. Change it up from workout to workout – the freedom to choose is yours. And, if you have Premium, this means you can swap between trainers AND fitness Programs. How cool is that?

    This is great. I love this app and I look forward to achieving my fitness goals!

  • Terri

    But what about Tony? I really liked him and his subtle humor. Will I see any more of him?

  • Esor

    I was wondering as well about Tony. Will we see him again?

  • Carla

    Ditto! Change is good but I want Tony guiding me through my sessions.

      I guess I’ll adjust, but I paid for the premium version of the app with that being part of the equation… now that’s been changed pretty radically with the new trainers.

  • Stella

    I miss Tony too but I found another way of doing the excercises with him. Just go to youtube and you’ll find a couple of the freestyle sessions that were uploaded there some time ago. May not be much but at least I get to excercise with him guiding me. hope this helps☺

  • Bristollad

    I guess his (Tony’s) contract came up for renewal and it was cheaper to replace than retain him…can’t think of any other reason for the change – improvements, phooey! Otherwise, they could introduce new trainers, videos without replacing Tony and people could’ve swapped if they wanted.

    I indeed dislike the voices of the new trainers so much I will no longer be using Fitstar. They sound sanitised and patronising.
