With the New Year here and the resolutions you’ve made to get fit in full effect, it’s a great time to get moving with FitStar. With record numbers of people around the world downloading the app since releasing our iPhone version a few weeks ago, we figured it’s a good time to remind everyone a few of the top ways FitStar can help you stick to your healthy commitments. Here they are:

1.  Avoid long lines at the gym
Gyms and fitness clubs are packed this time of year with everyone making good on their latest resolution. While it’s great to see everyone excited for fitness, it doesn’t make for the best experience if you’re just getting started and trying to get motivated. Waiting on other gym-goers to finish their sets takes you out of your rhythm AND lengthens your time spent at the gym. Don’t let the crowds (and cost) impact your chances for fitness success!

2.  Baby, it’s cold outside
Sure, before the holidays it’s quaint and festive, but after “the Season” the winter weather can make it tough to leave the house and get moving. Don’t let the cold keep you from getting fit! FitStar requires little else than your gym clothes, your iPhone or iPad, and a few square feet of space. Heck, you’ve probably got more than enough room to get in a Session just by rolling off the couch. And if you’ve got AirPlay or an HDMI cable, you can enjoy FitStar on your big screen TV with family-room-filling fitness, using your iOS device as the controller.

3.  A personal trainer in your pocket
Your workouts are your own. Every FitStar Program Session is tuned to your capabilities and progress, ensuring you stay in an ideal fitness zone. Every rep you swipe and Move you mark “Brutal” helps us to refine your next Session, ensuring a challenging, but rewarding, workout. And with FitStar on your iPhone, your next Session is ready whenever and wherever you are – get fit on your schedule!

4.  Train with NFL Legend Tony Gonzalez
A thirteen-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer, Tony’s missed only two games in his entire seventeen-year career, so the man knows a thing or two about staying healthy and in shape. With Tony walking you through every Session and Move, you’ll have the instruction and motivation you need to make it happen.

5.  Get in great shape for the price of a latte a month
While the adage is “no pain, no gain”, getting fit doesn’t have to hurt your wallet. While FitStar Basic is always free, for $4.99 a month (or $29.99 for the entire year, for a limited time), FitStar Premium gives you access to all-you-can-eat personalized Programs like Get Lean or Get Strong, as well as unlimited access to our hand-crafted, targeted Freestyle Sessions like Hardcore, Good Morning, and Bootcamp. What’s more, our data shows that FitStar Premium members are 6x more likely to stick with the workouts and get results.

Keep us posted on your progress on Facebook and Twitter.  And snap some fun, intense or sweaty pics using FitStar on Instagram, tag them #fitanywhere, and you may just show up on our Community page!

Most of all, have fun with the journey — fitness is a lifestyle and consistency is the key.

Here’s to a happy and health year, FitStars!
