Apple Fitness+ Gains Workouts For Pregnant Women, Older Adults, New Time to Walk Guest, More
Apple Fitness+ today gained some new workouts for those who weren’t already catered for including those wanting to work out during pregnancy as well as adults who are a little older. New trainers as well as an additional Time to Walk guest have also been announced.
That Time to Walk guest is none other than Jane Fonda, while new trainers include HIIT and Yoga, says Apple.
Fitness+ is also expanding its team of world-class trainers, introducing a new Yoga and Mindful Cooldown trainer, Jonelle Lewis, in addition to welcoming current Fitness+ trainer Anja Garcia to the HIIT team. Additionally, for those closing their rings with walking workouts, Jane Fonda — iconic actor, producer, author, and activist — will share inspiring stories, photos, and a few of her favorite songs in the next episode of Time to Walk in honor of Earth Day.
In terms of pregnancy, Apple Fitness+ now offers a way for women to stay active during pregnancy, with 10 workouts available across a variety of different categories.
Focused on helping women stay active during a healthy pregnancy and prepare for life with a new baby, the new Workouts for Pregnancy consist of 10 workouts across Strength, Core, and Mindful Cooldown. Led by Fitness+ trainer and mom-to-be Betina Gozo — who is joined by trainers and new moms Emily Fayette and Anja Garcia — every workout is a quick 10 minutes designed to accommodate any stage of pregnancy and any fitness level, and includes tips for modifying workouts using a pillow for comfort as the body changes. These workouts can be done on their own or mixed with Fitness+ weekly studio workouts, using the modifications shown in the series
New workouts for older adults, with a focus on strength, flexibility, and balance are also included with HIIT, Yoga, and Dance workouts included to add a little variety.
Workouts for Older Adults help users stay active at any age with a focus on strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and mobility. Led by Fitness+ trainer Molly Fox, this series includes eight workouts where Molly is joined by Gregg Cook for Strength, Dustin Brown for Yoga, Bakari Williams for HIIT, and Jhon Gonzalez for Dance. Many of the workouts are done with a light dumbbell or just bodyweight, and others show modifications with a chair or against the wall. The workouts are all 10 minutes long and can be done on their own or with other Fitness+ workouts, using the modifications users learn in this program when needed.
Apple Fitness+ is available for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, although it’s also available as part of the Apple One Premier plan priced at $29.95 per month. You can find out about the new additions in today’s Apple Newsroom post, too.
