Fitness companies FitStar and MyFitnessPal have announced a new partnership, aimed at offering improved tracking and management of health data to mobile users. The beginning of this partnership will see users given the opportunity to link their accounts across both platforms, providing improved management of their fitness data, including calories burned and overall fitness progress.
The FitStar: Tony Gonzalez iOS app was updated in December, and features exercise videos starring the Atlanta Falcons tight end. The update brought new workouts and iOS 7 optimizations to the experience, which adjusts to user performance over time.
Meanwhile, MyFitnessPal offers a large database of nutritional information for over three million food items, including those from popular brands and restaurants. By joining together the FitStar workout experience and this health and fitness database, the pair hopes to offer their users the best available look at their overall personal health.
“We started FitStar to inspire people to live healthier lives. And tracking and analyzing personal data – especially nutrition data – is crucial for one to succeed in their fitness and weight loss journey. MyFitnessPal is a great way to track that data,” said Mike Maser, CEO and co-founder of FitStar, Inc.
“We’re excited to start a long-term partnership with MyFitnessPal because we firmly believe that their nutrition data will help us personalize our workouts to create an even better product experience. Being able to tell if a person ate 1,000 calories more than average the day before, for example, will allow us to suggest they ratchet up their FitStar workout the next day.”
FitStar: Tony Gonzalez is available to download for free on iOS. A FitStar Premium service is also available, offering unlimited workouts each week, nutritional advice and other features for $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
