We’re inspired every day by the work our FitStars put in and love hearing about how our app is changing lives for the better! So we launched #FitStarStories as a way to share motivating results with our entire community.

Blake has been using FitStar exclusively for two months and has lost 20 pounds! Here are five facts you need to know about FitStar: Blake Woody.

1) What’s your name and where do you live? 

My name is Blake Woody and I live in a small town called Clyde in North Carolina.

2) How long have you been using FitStar?

I’ve been using Fitstar on and off for about 3 months now but, as of 2 months ago I switched over to using it full time as my main workout regimen.

3) What is your FitStar story? 

In January of 2014 I started back on the Insanity program from Beach Body after almost a year of no working out. I lost about 15 lbs in two months but was getting bored with the same routines every week. I needed a change. I had used FitStar before but not religiously. I decided to take the plunge and go all in. I signed up for the membership at $5/month and haven’t looked back. I also use a Jawbone UP24 to track my movement each day and MyFitnessPal to track my caloric intake. Both services work hand in hand with FitStar which makes a great experience overall. Since joining FitStar full time as my workout program I’ve lost about 20 pounds. In January I weighed in at 205 pounds. Today, I weigh 171, have much better muscle tone throughout my whole body, and my cardio is through the roof.

4) Why is FitStar a good fit for you?

It works well with other services I use such as the Jawbone UP24 and MyFitnessPal. I also love the Freestyle Sessions to change things up from time to time. I find them fun. Some days I don’t want to follow my Get Lean Program so I find myself completing 2-3 Freestyle Sessions for a couple of days. It’s great.

Completing a workout is the first thing I do immediately after breakfast in the comfort of my own living room. No driving to the gym and no expensive workout equipment. Just $5/month and some dedication gets me right.

5) What have you gained by using FitStar?

More energy since I work two jobs that total about 13-14 hrs 6 days a week, energy is something I need. My clothes also fit much better and overall I feel better. I’m probably in the best shape of my life and I haven’t stepped foot in a gym or on a treadmill all year. All I need is open space and my iPhone, then I’m good to go.

Way to go Blake!
