Fitdigits Helped Me Transform My Life

Last year I made the decision to finally do something about the weight that I’d slowly gained over the last ten years. I’d gone from finishing triathlons to finishing donuts in record time and knew it was time to change.

I started my journey by teaming up with a co-worker to follow a popular diet program our employer sponsored. This took me down about twenty pounds where I determined it was time to really get serious. Another good friend challenged me to compete with him in a small sprint distance triathlon in four months. This was the catalyst that brought me to Fitdigits.

I had purchased a Wahoo Blue HR heart rate monitor to get more from my workouts but was unimpressed with their app and after much research found Fitdigits. Using the customization available with Fitdigits I’ve been able to tailor my workouts and reach a new level of fitness.

Since the beginning of my journey I’ve lost 50 pounds and completed not only the sprint triathlon but also my first half and full marathon! I fit in clothes I haven’t seen in over a decade and feel fantastic. I can now go out on a ride, run or even snowshoe straight up a mountain and not get winded or be holding the group back. I’ve reached a level I thought was years behind me, never to be attained again. The Fitdigits app also has allowed me to not only record and track my progress but to share it as well and challenge others through partner tracking sites like Strava® and RunKeeper®.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone that helps bring this awesome product to users like me and the transformative power it can have on our lives.

Share Your Fitdigits Activities to Our Partners

Ever since preschool, it has been hammered into our heads to share. “Sharing is caring” my preschool teacher, Ms. Cray, would always say, and I must say she got that right (also was a big fan of nap time).

You’ve seen the power of adding a Daily Activity provider or Nutrition & Calorie Intake provider. Here we will cover sharing activities tracked in Fitdigits apps to our workout sharing partners. It’s easy to show your friends, family and workout buddies that you truly care by sharing your Fitdigits workouts. It is fun, easy, and a great way to inspire others, or also if you happen to have a lot of data in a particular portal, and aren’t ready to make the full jump, but still love using our apps!

Share your workouts to: TrainingPeaks, Strava, Runkeeper, DailyMile, Facebook, MyFitnessPal, Twitter and More

With our Star Membership, you have the ability to auto-share to your partners. When paired and set to on, activity providers will be automatically updated every time you do a workout without having to share manually as outlined here.

To Share from your iOS or Android device:

1. Go into the detailed Results of the activity you want to shareSharing to partners from Fitdigits apps
2. Tap the “Share” in the upper right hand corner
3. Tap how you want to share the activity.
4. If you don’t see the partner you want to share to in the list, tap “Add Share Partner” and select / link to the desired partner.

NOTES: Make sure you have synced your workouts by performing a Sync before you attempt to share via .csv. Fitdigits will not allow you to email your results via .csv, .gpx or .tcx if you have not already synced the workout.

Also, from the devices, share is only for activity partners, not device partners such as Fitbit, Jawbone UP, or nutrition partners such as MyFitnessPal. The share to those partners is typically automatic on sync, but if there is an issue, you can also share them via the website, see below for more.

 

To Share from the Website:

Partner Share from Fitdigits Website
