Fitnet, the first-ever mobile fitness training app to use a webcam to score clients on human-led workout sessions, reveals it has helped clients from 193 countries and all 50 states get beach body ready by burning more than 2 million calories collectively. Using advanced computer vision technology, the app connects clients with personal trainers - complete with real-time individual feedback and workout scoring. Fitnet 1.40, released just in time for summer, also allows guest user access plus scheduled email reminders, living up to its mission to help clients realize their fitness goals.

"On January 1, we debuted Fitnet in the iTunes App Store to help consumers meet their New Years' Resolutions by getting fit anywhere, anytime," said Bob Summers, chief geek at Fitnet. "Today, we're proud that in just five months our app has become one of iTunes' top fitness apps, enabling thousands of clients to collectively burn 2 million calories… and counting!"

Fitnet helps clients achieve fitness goals through yoga, cardio and strength workouts customized by level and preference, trainer feedback, and adjustments based on past performance. As the only mobile fitness app on the market with a biometric webcam and personalized scoring system, Fitnet provides users with the same workout experience as a personal training session with the convenience of working out any place, at any time.

"From the road warrior to the new mom, an average person's schedule is normally packed from the time an alarm goes off until they hit the pillow," said Summers. "We wanted to create a convenient and customizable workout that where a user can participate in their hotel room, living room or office –all while receiving live feedback to keeps them on track."

With multiple trainers guiding various workouts from yoga to strength exercises, the app also serves as a tool for personal trainers looking to engage with their client base outside of the gym. Plans for increasing the variety of workouts and personal trainer partnerships are currently underway.

"Finally found just exactly what I need and want! A trainer in my living room... when I want it," exclaimed T-Berrie in her iTunes App Store review. "Everything else out there is so intense for beginners. I can't wait to be fit enough to try [the] more intense workouts."
