“Fitnet availability for Android delivers on our vision to bring the world’s premier health and fitness app to scale,” said chief geek Bob Summers. “In just one year, Fitnet trainers have already enabled Fitnet clients to burn over 5 million calories of exercise!

Boasting added functionality, Fitnet’s new Chromecast integration broadens the apps’ real-time measurement capabilities. On the heels of its integration with Apple Health and Apple TV, Fitnet’s integration with Google Chromecast will transform more smartphones into wearable devices.

“Like the iOS app before it, the new Android app will reveal a pipeline of endless opportunities for trainers like myself to engage with existing clients outside the gym and attract new clients from near and far,” said certified Fitnet Fitness Trainer, Laurie Maddox. “Fitnet’s technology provides all of the tools that I need to measure my clients’ progress, keep them motivated, and continue training them in order to help them reach their personal fitness goals.”

Fitnet closed $1.4 million in Series A Funding in April, led by Valleys' Ventures, LP and CIT Gap Funds.
