Fitbits are tried-and-true products in the fitness space, trusted by celebrity trainers and notable celebs. Back in October, celebrity personal trainer Harley Pasternak — who has worked with Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow — told In The Know that a Fitbit is one of his personal favorite tools to track progress for his clients and himself.
"Sometimes I swim and it's waterproof,” Pasternak said. “I can also stream music through it. I can link mine to my clients so we have this friendly competition to see how many steps we've done to each other — so I can see how much or how little they've moved that week."
The device can hold you accountable to personal fitness goals, while also tracking your everyday habits to give a more comprehensive view of your health. After all, what you choose to do for exercise is only a portion what "health" is, and physical fitness is way more than a number on the scale or how much you can bench.
"When FitBit came along, it introduced this idea that I could give people credit for all the movement they did over the course of a day — not just on a machine in a gym,” Pasternak told In The Know earlier this month. “It revolutionized the experience, where all of a sudden a client would say, 'There’s a coffee shop that’s a mile from me. What if I walked to get my coffee every morning and walked back? Do I still have to do the cardio at the gym?'"
He added: “My clients now don’t even use the gym to do their cardio anymore, and it makes their lives more active overall."
