Apple Inc. announced a new fitness subscription service, Fitness+, that will include 10 studio workouts including yoga, cycling, dance, rowing, strength training, and “mindful cooldowns.”
The library of workouts is meant to work with the Apple Watch. New workouts will be released every week and led by “the world’s best trainers,” with Apple Music integrated into each one.
The Fitness+ service tracks metrics such as heart rate and total calories burned throughout workouts via the Apple Watch. Apple’s activity rings will also be visible displaying a summary of the workout when the wearer is finished. Workouts require a set of dumbbells at most and can be done anywhere.
Members will also be able to share an account with up to five family members and the service will launch later this year in the U.S., the UK, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand.
“We’re so excited to energize our customers with new ways to get active and stay active with Apple Watch,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of fitness for Health Technologies, in a statement. “With diverse studio workouts that are suitable for all ability levels, led by a phenomenal group of unique trainers, and an approachable program designed for beginners all the way through to the fitness enthusiast — as well as the flexibility to work out anywhere — there’s something for everyone. We know Fitness+ will take working out with Apple Watch to the next level with unparalleled engagement, convenience, and inspiration.”
Apple is also bundling its subscription services for the first time in an offering called Apple One. The individual plan of Apple One lets a single user access Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage.
