Apple Watch fitness service brings the gym to you

Apple Fitness+ (aka Apple Fitness Plus) offers Workout Hours (and adding more each week) for Apple Watch to help you reach your fitness goals. You can use Apple Fitness+ on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. The service is one of six that can be bundled into an Apple One subscription.

What is Apple Fitness+?

Apple Fitness+ is a subscription-based workout service available on iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2 and later. You don’t need special exercise equipment to take advantage of fitness routines. Use what you have at home while tracking your stats and comparing your performance with others who have taken the same course. Many workouts require no equipment, while some require minimal equipment, such as a set of dumbbells.

Workouts include yoga, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), treadmill training, and more. Choose your workout by duration, trainer, or type of music to find a class that’s right for you.

The Apple Fitness+ subscription service looks like a direct challenge to Peloton, the company offering expensive proprietary bikes and a monthly workout subscription.

When was Apple Fitness+ launched?

Apple Fitness+ became available on Monday, December 14, 2020, as did iOS and watchOS updates. (Just in time for New Year’s resolutions!) To join, go to the Apple Fitness+ website and click Free try.

Apple Watch owners can try the service for free for one month. If you buy a new Apple Watch Series 3 or later, you get three months free. Share your subscription with up to five family members.

Notable Features of Apple Fitness+

Apple Fitness+ is built into your Apple Watch, tracks your metrics and measures your heart rate, distance, calories burned, and more. This information displays on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, so you don’t have to stare at your wrist while you sweat.

When you close an activity ring (reach your daily goal), a congratulations animation will appear on screen to keep you motivated. The Apple Watch sets three goals (move, exercise, and stand) and tracks them daily.

When you use Apple Fitness+, it offers workout recommendations based on your history and suggests new trainers and exercises to try. Search and filter workouts based on your preferences, such as class length or intensity level. There are even programs tailored to specific populations like “Workouts for Pregnancy” and “Workouts for Older Adults.”

Apple Coaches create workout-friendly playlists in collaboration with Apple Music editors.

Fitness + Walking time

If you want to reap the benefits of walking as part of your exercise routine, but feel unmotivated or bored, Apple Fitness+ has a unique and inspiring feature that can get you moving. Time to Walk consists of 25-40 minute episodes featuring inspiring and unique guests who shed light on their personal journeys, motivations, lessons learned, and life’s most vulnerable and defining moments. For example, Apple released an Earth Day-themed Time to Walk episode narrated by actress Jane Fonda in which she talks about her lifelong environmental activism.

These episodes are recorded as the guest walks through an area or place that is meaningful to them. As the guest shares their stories, you feel a light tap on your wrist to indicate photos appear on your Apple Watch to illustrate their trials and triumphs. When the guest has finished sharing their story, you are entitled to the songs they have chosen, so you can continue your walk listening to music intimately associated with the guest’s story.

Time to Walk episode on an Apple Watch with Shawn Mendes

Apple designed Time to Walk to inspire users to walk more frequently and for greater distances, at their own pace, as they walk alongside inspirational personalities such as Dolly Parton, Draymond Green, Uzo Aduba and Shawn Mendes. For subscribers who use a wheelchair, Time to Walk becomes Time to Push, automatically adapting to outdoor wheelchair training.

New Time to Walk episodes are released every Monday and all episodes are available with your Fitness+ subscription. You’ll need paired AirPods or Bluetooth headphones to enjoy Time to Walk.

Fitness+ Race Time

Runners and joggers have a Time to Walk style feature for their faster workouts called Time to Run. These curated workouts, called “Episodes,” feature popular trainers curating playlists to keep you motivated. They also include location-specific photos based on locations such as London, Brooklyn and Miami Beach with new workouts released every Monday.

Time to Run supports both indoor and outdoor workouts, as well as a variant for wheelchair users called Time to Push.

Apple Fitness+ Collections

Those who want more directed fitness suggestions can use Collections, which are targeted, organized workouts that target a single goal or muscle group. Examples include:

  • Run your first 5K
  • 30 Day Core Challenge
  • Strengthen and stretch your back and hips
  • Relax for a better bedtime

Collections bring together exercises, meditations, and other activities from across Apple Fitness+; they are “playlists” rather than brand new workout programs. But they can be useful for people who don’t know where to start but have clear improvements to make in their fitness.
