Picture this: you ran five miles yesterday wearing your Fitbit device. That was a good workout, right? Today, when you open your Fitstar Personal Trainer app, you’ll see some suggestions. These Recommended Workouts, will take your recent run into account and offer you some additional options:
1. Because you ran, you might want to take it easy on your legs and work your abs and arms instead.
2. Alternatively, but still because you’re a runner, you might want to double down on cardio. Thus, Fitstar also offers up a fast-paced Freestyle session like Cardio Crunch.
Don’t have a Fitbit yet? No problem. Fitstar focuses on your feedback from each of your Fitstar workouts – whether your goal is to Get Strong, Get Lean, Get Moving, or get a Daily Dose of fitness. Based on your input, as well as tracking what other Fitstars like you are working on, we’ll suggest sessions to complement your journey.
Fitbit users will also see these workouts in the new “Guidance” tab coming soon to the Fitbit app, and Fitstar users will find them in the Recommended workouts section of their dashboard.
Fitstars with and without Fitbits will enjoy a more customized exercise experience; the more you wear your Fitbit and complete Fitstar workouts, giving feedback as you normally do, the smarter the workout recommendations become.
This is exciting for us, because of the added layer of customization it brings you, and because it’s the first time the Fitstar and Fitbit products have integrated to provide you with such a seamless fitness program.
Previously, you could sync your Fitbit and Fitstar accounts to track your progress, and see how your activity impacts your overall health. But we’ve also been working on deeper connections for Fitstars with Fitbit trackers:
– Fitstar workouts will be logged in the Fitbit app giving you credit toward your weekly exercise goal.
– Fitstar users who wear a Fitbit device equipped with Fitbit’s PurePluse continuous heart rate tracking, such as the Fitbit Blaze, Charge 2, and Surge, during their Fitstar-logged workout can see their tracked heart rate trends in the exercise summary within the Fitbit app.
– Fitbit Blaze also offers three of the most popular Fitstar Personal Trainer workouts—Warm it Up, 7-Minute Workout and 10-Minute Abs—right on your wrist for access anytime, anywhere.
This bigger picture, or holistic view, of your activity is exciting, and we’re thrilled to share it with you. But this is just the beginning – expect to see even more relevant guidance woven throughout your fitness journey as we add new features to this latest evolution of Fitstar!
We believe the best workout is the one you’ll do – and we think you’ll love your new recommendations. Check them out in the app now!
