Later today, Tony Gonzalez plays in his 14th Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii — the final, final game of his storied 17-year NFL career. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to tune in at 7:30PM (ET) on NBC here in the US to watch.

Of course, Tony’s work with FitStar will continue, and as he turns the page on the next chapter of his career we’re excited to have him more involved than ever in helping millions of people around the world improve their health.

We here in the FitStar family feel incredibly grateful and inspired to have someone of Tony’s caliber as our first FitStar Trainer. He embodies the class, confidence, determination, humility, passion and success we strive to deliver every day. Seeing the data and hearing your stories of progress tells us he inspires you to keep pushing toward your fitness goals.
