Apple Announces Apple Fitness+ With Personalized Fitness Training And More
Apple has just announced its first fitness subscription service – Apple Fitness+. And if you’ve ever seen Peloton, you will be right at home
The new service takes advantage of Apple’s use of both hardware and software integration to create an experience that few others can match.
Users can watch fitness classes on their iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and their workouts will be automatically synced with their Apple Watch. That works both was as well, with workout and health data appearing on-screen as the workout continues.
There are many different kinds of workouts on offer, with Apple saying that its new service will do its best to work out the best exercises for them based on what they’ve done before.
Using a custom recommendation engine, Fitness+ considers previously completed workouts and intelligently suggests new options that match the workouts users select most often, or something fresh to balance their current routine. Customers can also use an intuitive filtering tool to choose what is most important to them when looking for a workout, whether it’s the workout type, the trainer, the duration, or the music. For Apple Music subscribers, favorite music from Fitness+ workouts can also be easily saved and listened to later, whether in a workout or otherwise.
Apple Fitness+ includes workouts such as Cycling, Treadmill, Rowing, HIIT, Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, and Mindful Cooldown with Apple Music integration ensuring the right tune is always played at the right time based on the activity at hand.
Importantly, Apple says users can take advantage of any fitness equipment they already own or, if they prefer, none at all. All of this will be available this fall with Apple charging $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year. There will be a free one-month trial available to everyone as well. The service will be available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, and the US to start with.
