The Fitbit Movement: Join Today!

Here at Fitbit, we’re constantly inspired by the passion, enthusiasm, stories and advice from our users. Whether you’re emailing us progress updates, telling your friends about us on Facebook, or putting together your own step competitions with friends, our users are always impressing us with both their commitment to getting or staying healthy, and their desire to help their friends and family do the same.  It’s wonderful to have this common shared belief with you — that small everyday changes can be fun and will add up to big results.   And we believe, together, we can bring this belief to more people — and change how many people view fitness today.

For nearly a year, we’ve been experimenting with different tactics to help support and reward the efforts of those who are living examples of our mission to help make the world a healthier place, one step at a time. We’ve created the Fitbit Tell-a-Friend program, created a wide affiliate network, shared insider information, gathered customer stories, promoted your stories to others. Now we would love to open our ambassador program to all of you. As a Fitbit ambassador, you’ll be invited into a new community of Fitbit users whose goal is to share, inspire, and motivate people to be more fit — in a smart, fun, realistic and (Fitbit) way. Additionally, as an ambassador you’ll get insider access to Fitbit news, get to share your Fitbit story, and earn special rewards from us at Fitbit.

We’re still fine-tuning and growing this beta program, but by joining now you can help develop our community and determine its future! If you’re interested, you can apply by filling out this survey. We’ll be in touch with more information about joining to those who do! And we look forward to hearing more of your stories on Facebook and Twitter. Happy stepping!

    Woot! Only hours ago did I thank your support team graciously and tell them how much I evangelize about my Fitbit.

    What an exciting opportunity! I swear by my fitbit and the motivation it gives me, always telling everyone that asks “how are you doing it?” that I account much of my success to your product. Thank you so much!

    I am a personal trainer and fitness instructor at my local Y, and just last night I shared with my class about fitbit and the wonderful customer service you have! I’ve used fitbit for 2 years and have had nothing but positive things to share with others. :) I am already an ambassador, just not an official one!

    I have gotten a few of my family members turned on to fitbit, as well as friends. What a blast it is to get the steps in, make the exercise “fun” competitive, and an incredible motivator.

    When I was trying to trim off a few pounds – was great to use site for other activities to track where I was not only making progress, but also following calories burned, calories consumed, etc. Fit Bit makes it fun!

    PS – I’m also an Aria scale user!

    I love my Fitbit. I have had just over a year and have used it everyday since. I even got my kids to get one. I even have the scale and faithfully get on it everyday to log my weight.

    Since the moment I got my fitbit – I have walked more every day. Have challenged myself to go further every day. Climbed more stairs and hills to get more badges. I am thrilled to be a fitbit ambassador!

  10. March 18, 2013

    I’m super excited to begin the ambassador program… I feel like I’ve been one before I even had my Fitbit “The One”. I can’t wait to see what this brings… loving life with my fitbit!

    I love FitBit, discovered it through a group of girls dedicated to Fitness. I won mine through an EveryMove.org contest and I love it. Hope to help others on their journey to fitness while I am on mine!

    This is going to be so awesome! Let’s just say I feel naked without my Fitbit One! There isn’t a day that go without me mentioning Fitbit to someone!

    Excellent! I tell everyone about Fitbit and am so excited when my friends start using them. Sometimes joking that it is addictive, the truth is that it is a fun and simple way that inspires a dedication to health and fitness. It is fun to network through Fitbit as well and talk to each other about your steps, how you got them, etc. I have lost 9 pounds already and feel the best I have ever, since I began using Fitbit on January 17, 2013. Thank you!

    Wow thank you so much for just inventing the Fitbit in the 1st place, without it I would just do a workout & then stop for the rest of the day. Since getting my One 5 months ago I’ve been on the move constantly. I loved it so much I got one for my son & one for my husband. I’m so thrilled to be one of the chosen ones for Fitbit. I can’t wait. I already rave about it, so telling everyone how much motivation it can give you & what it’s done for me is not going to be hard, it’s a brilliant product & company.

    I’ve had my fitbit since Fall 2010 – LUV it! Don’t go anywhere without it. Have gotten my walking friends hooked on fitbit too now, and they have gotten so competitive. It’s great, really is getting everyone aware of their actual activity which is now having a good influence on their health!,,,,

    I’ve had my Fitbit One for two weeks, and I love it. I’ve surpassed my initial goals so I keep increasing them a little bit every couple of days. Fitbit is showing me every step of the way what I can do and then some. The real time feedback Fitbit provides let’s me see my results as I move. The scales are showing the results too. The new app upgrade released today is a great enhancement. I’m so pleased with my Fitbit One, and all my friends are hearing about it!

    Yesterday I wore it for my first day. What motivation! I do more so I can log it! I was more careful about what I ate because I knew how many calories I had left, for the day. This is going to be a great tool for me!!!

    I ordered my fitbit yesterday and can’t wait to get it. The comments about it alone is getting me pumped up.

    I love my fitbit and wear it every day for the past three years. I can not start my day unless I put it on. I keep it by my bedside at night and clip it on in the morning. I have motivated many friends to use a fitbit for a healthy sustainable lifestyle. 10,000 steps is my minimum. It is the best tech tool. Thank you!

    oh-I wanted to add about FitBit Flex is great for for tracking sleep… They say sleeping 7 hours is needed to add in weight loss. Well , I haave horrible sleeping habits so it definitely helps me by tracking my sleep patterns and time.. It gets me to bed a bit earlier and that’s good for everything!!

    I had the idea last Christmas to stay connected with my sister. I bought a fitbit for her and she bought on for me. With our busy schedules we have our fitbit s on all the time. I find out more and more about it every day . Now actually logging calories , yes took me this long. Now getting messages from other people with fitbit s . My fitbit has also encouraged my staff to walk with me , although they don’t have fitbits, quite expensive for them. But because the are helping me and themselves , I am saving my money to get them for them so we can stay connected all the time. There is not a day that goes by when my staff is asking what the fitbit says… And more important I keep in touch with my sister daily. A friendly competition!!!

      I love my Fitbit! I bought it because I so believe in exercising. I have had Type one diabetes for the past 50 years. I choose my job well as I became an RN CDE so I could teach other about diabetes. (CDE is a certified diabetes educator) As an result I am well versed on the importance of exercise as it helps to decrease blood sugars. Sometimes my Fitbit challenges me to do more when I download it and it says 6550 steps. Well that pushes me to my elliptical bike for more of a workout. I love to see that I did what I need to do each day! Looking forward to no snow but season just began!

    FitBit is a best “mentor” to follow you to your everyday goal! My couple friends bought it after my suggestions and enjoy it as well.

  32. October 14, 2013

    Everyone keeps telling me how good I look from before I got my fitbit and started increasing my activity level. This little wrist device has changed my life and the way I live it. I often tell people how and why my life has turned around with this tech devic.
