    language change automatically… cant see white countdown because of light background… cant see tutorial because of full screen countdown before every exercise… gonzalez is missing trainer…

  • Mike D.

    Where is Tony??!! Please, bring him back! I can’t live like this.

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hey Mike, Tony was crucial in the launch and success of Fitstar Personal Trainer. We’re incredibly grateful to him and his commitment to the app and our community. As his career grows and our product evolves, it made sense for us to take a fresh approach and offer our audience two new trainers to choose from.

      We hope you’ll give the refreshed app a try. Both Adrian and Lea are great trainers too!

  • Amy

    Please bring back Tony!!!!! Miss his personality and charisma. Also finding the time or rep countdown for each workout much harder to read on the new update- white is hard to see on the light background and much too small :(

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Thanks for the input, Amy. We’ll share your thoughts about the rep countdown with our development team.

  • sheri

    Where is Tony? New trainers are good, but I miss his humor. “Pull in your stomach, you’re about to get your picture taken!”

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hey Sheri, you might recognize a few familiar lines or phrases in the redesigned app that Tony said too. :)

      Glad you like the new trainers and are giving the refreshed app a try!

  • Bristollad

    The new video for shadow boxing demonstrates atrocious form: no hip rotation visible at all, just wild flailing with the arms. Why was this chosen as the exemplar?
    Similarly, the instructions for “good mornings” now tells you to clasp your hands behind your neck whilst the video has arms stiff by the sides?!
    I found Tony’s style encouraging – some of the new videos are annoying, others discouraging. Doesn’t seem like an improvement so far.

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Thanks for your input, we’ll share this feedback with our development team. Glad you’re giving the redesigned app a try!

  • kalyan Pesala

    Before the update personalised workouts use to show which body parts we are working on but now it’s simply showing quick strength , double down, strength variety Please change it … New videos are good but definitely not improved … pros in the update is only interface and fitbit connectivity

    • Bristollad

      The app on my iPad doesn’t show body parts, but the same personalised workout looked at on the web does. “Optimised” for the smaller screen maybe?

      • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

        Thanks for flagging. We’re aware and looking to address in the future!

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Thanks Kaylan, our team is aware that people like you miss knowing what body parts you’re working on. We’re looking to address this in the future.

  • Joe

    Bring back Tony. Go Bears

  • st12

    so you guys are saying I shouldn’t update the app so I can keep Tony? gotcha. Will do.

  • alan

    how to downgrade fitstar???

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Alan, once you have updated to the new version, it’s not possible to revert to the old version of Fitstar Personal Trainer. We hope you’ll give the updated version a try!

  • Jamie

    Tony! Tony! Tony!

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Jamie, we have truly valued our partnership with Tony and are excited to watch his career continue to grow. We’ll be rooting for each other!

  • Arnaud

    The countdown was better before – i was able to see how many reps i’m doing. The new coach Adrian is good. I don’t understand why we don’t get to see which part of the body we’re working on anymore. Is it random now ?? Just don’t do everything in favour of Fitbit and the runners. Remember we’re not all using fitbit. It was perfect before, why changing everything ?
    Anyway, i don’t forget you guys do an incredibly good job. Your app is the best fitness app so far so keep up the good work !

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Arnaud, thanks for the input! We’re aware our Fitstars like you miss knowing what body parts you’re working on. We’re looking to address this in the future.

  • Bill Smith

    What happened? This App was showing so much promise to until Fitbit purchased them. Now this latest update has removed the Apple Watch App and Healthkit option doesn’t support heart rate. I guess it’s time to move on! I was really hoping they would have created a Apple TV app by now. Time to give Sworkit a try!

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Bill, we know our loyal and dedicated users who enjoy Fitstar Personal Trainer on the Apple Watch will be disappointed about this change. We hope you give the new version of the app a shot on your other iOS devices, Android phones, or on the web.

  • Mollie

    So Apple Health Integration is going away now? First FitBit stole my Pebble Watch, and now they’re messing up my favorite Fitness App? I might think about getting subscribing to FitBit if they’d use the Pebble Hardware I already own (and paid good money for) and not screw up my favorite fitness app. I want integration with Apple Health!

  • Janelle Ferrell

    I agree with below comments, we really need tony back, so many issues with the upgraded version, all listed below…poor technique is doing my head in and I really like to know what muscle groups the workout will entail prior to starting!

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Janelle, thanks for your input. As with all feedback, we’ll make sure our development team is aware. Also, we’re aware people like you miss the muscle groups and we’re looking to address that in the future.

  • BringTonyBack

    You people are evil, I need Tony’s encouragement to do my thing and you took him away.

  • BringTonyBack

    I really mean it, Tony or bust.

  • Tony Lewis

    Hi, is there a way of removing the 15sec countdown and feedback between exercises? It stops my flow.
    Also can I link the sessions to my Fitbit blaze so I don’t need to keep going to my phone/laptop.

    • http://fitstar.com/ Fitstar

      Hi Tony, we appreciate you reaching out! These are all really good questions.
      During the workouts, you can fast forward the 15 second countdown by tapping the screen and hitting the fast forward button on the lower right hand corner.
      The feedback functionality is not something that can be removed since it’s crucial to how we build personalized sessions for you. We use the input you provide after each move to adjust your workouts so they progress with you.
      We’re glad you’re using and enjoying the workouts on the Fitbit Blaze! Those are standalone workouts built especially for the Fitbit Blaze. They are not synced with the full Fitstar Personal Trainer app, so there is no way to link workouts at this time. Please feel free reach out to Fitbit support directly if you have any other questions about this: https://contact.fitbit.com.
