Apple will launch its latest subscription platform – Fitness+ – on December 15 and bring personalised studio style workouts to your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
Fitness+ will also intelligently incorporate metrics from Apple Watch for a first of its kind experience that will allow users to exercise wherever and whenever is convenient to them.
Users will be able to observe their heart rate obtained from their Apple Watch on the screen their viewing whether it’s the iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
Apple Fitness+ will launch with 10 of the most popular workout types which include high intensity interval training (HIIT), strength, yoga, dance, core, cycling, treadmill for running and walking, rowing and mindful cooldown.
The workouts will be led by a team of trainers who offer a welcoming approach with workouts set to inspiring music from the top artists.
Workouts will range in increments of 10, 20, 30 and 45 minutes.
“Being more active is one of the most important things we can do for our health, but we know choosing to work out can often be a challenge whether you’re very active or just getting started,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of Fitness Technologies.
“We’re excited for Apple Fitness+ to bring together the metrics from Apple Watch, great music, and a diverse and inspiring trainer team — in a uniquely simple, easy-to-access way across Apple devices — to encourage our users to get fit and stay healthy.”
Users are able to choose their trainer, length of workout and music in a few short steps.
And based on workouts previously completed, an intelligent recommendation engine can recommend your next workout and match what the user already enjoys so they can stick with something familiar.
Or perhaps try something new or help them discover a new trainer or new workout to go with their current routine.
New content will be delivered across Fitness+ each week with a variety of trainers, times and music with workouts designed to suit all levels of fitness including those getting back into exercising and absolute beginners.
The Apple Fitness+ trainers have been chosen for their charisma and passion and abilities with the goal to inspire and motivate users.
Music plays a big part of Apple Fitness+ and users can choose from nine different styles including latest hits, chill vibes, upbeat anthems, pure dance, throwback hits, everything rock, Latin grooves, hip hop, R&B and top country.
You can even see the full workout playlist before they start.

And no matter where you choose to begin your workout, all of your personalised recommendations are synced across all your devices.
