Heading into his 17th NFL season, Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is arguably the best ever to play his position. He currently holds league records for touchdown receptions (107) and total reception yards (14,268) by a tight end, and he has only missed one game throughout the course of his illustrious career. It goes without saying that you don't survive that long in the NFL if you're not in peak physical condition, which makes Gonzalez the ideal athlete to headline FitStar Labs' new app for iPad, which offers a wealth of strength, cardio and weight-loss programs optimized for workout warriors of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels.

Fitstar: Tony Gonzalez is essentially a virtual personal trainer, letting users build programs tailored to their individual capabilities, goals, pace and schedule--the app's Intelligent Progression System continually recalibrates itself based on your progress and commitment, awarding badges and unlocking bonus moves for completing milestones. Gonzalez leads all workouts, and his instructions are direct and easy to follow: Fitstar bolsters each program with high-energy music, and gives users the option to input music from their iTunes library or favorite streaming service, with Gonzalez's coaching tips layered on top. Consumers can also upgrade to Fitstar's Premium Program for the ultimate fitness experience for more varied workouts, nutritional recommendations and HD video. FitStar may not make you an NFL superstar, but it will get you into game shape.
