Apples Fitness service + subscription launches on December 14 after being announced at an event in September. It will cost you $ 9.99 per month (or $ 79.99 per year) and requires a compatible Apple Watch paired with an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. At launch, you envision 10 types of training: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, Cycling, Treadmill (for running and walking), Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown .
Apple Watch has been extremely popular as a fitness device. And with Fitness +, the company harnesses that popularity by making it the heart of the experience. For example, if there are a few minutes left during an intense session, the time will be highlighted to let you know that you are almost done.
Using artificial intelligence (AI), the service will know what types of workout you are doing and will recommend different workouts based on your history. And if you have an Apple Music subscription, Fitness + will integrate it into your workouts, helping you stay focused on the task at hand.
Fitness + recommends workouts that match what the user already enjoys doing so that they can jump right in with something familiar, suggest trying something new, help them discover a new trainer, or suggest a training to complete their current routine.
Apple says you’ll get new content every week with varying trainers, lengths, and music. This way you don’t have to do the same thing every week. The company also offers what it calls “Absolute Beginner” workouts, which are perfect for those who are just starting to exercise. Or maybe you have taken a break from exercise for a few weeks (or months) and need help getting back on track.
As mentioned earlier, the service will cost you $ 9.99 per month or $ 79.99 per year. Another option is to bundle it with Apple One, which will set you back $ 29.99 per month. It includes Apple Music, 2TB iCloud storage, Apple Arcade, Apple News +, Apple TV + and of course Apple Fitness +. Remember, you only save money if you actually use all these subscriptions.
Either way, you really don’t have an excuse. Get out there and get in shape!
