Apple launched one of its newest subscription services, Fitness+, back in December of last year. It brought with it a ton of different workouts and trainers, and now Apple is adding even more to the mix.
On Thursday, Apple announced that it is adding new workouts for Fitness+ subscribers. In addition to that, the service will also add new trainers, and the service’s bonus feature, Time to Walk for the Apple Watch, is getting another guest as well. Quite a bit of new stuff for the relatively fledgling service.
The first batch of new workouts is designed specifically for individuals who are pregnant, and those who are older. But Apple is also adding new workouts for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, and Yoga as well.
Workouts for pregnancy
Apple says it’s adding 10 workouts within the Strength, Mindful Cooldown, and Core. Betina Gozo will be leading the workouts, and she’ll be joined by trainers Anja Garcia and Emily Fayette. Per Apple:
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.
Workouts for older adults
These exercises are designed to help older adults focus on strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and mobility. These will be led by trainer Molly Fox. Per Apple:
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.
More workouts in general and trainers
Apple will be adding new workouts for the service, as well as new trainers.
Yoga and HIIT are two of the most popular Fitness+ workouts, and now new trainers are joining both of these teams. Jonelle Lewis is the newest addition to the Fitness+ trainer team and will be joining Molly Fox, Dustin Brown, and Jessica Skye for Yoga and Mindful Cooldown workouts. Jonelle has been practicing Yoga for over 15 years and has been a teacher, mentor, and educator for other yoga teachers for the past seven years. Her energetic teaching style and simple-to-follow flows will appeal to both beginners and seasoned yoga enthusiasts. With her love of hip-hop and R&B beats, she creates a playful and fun vibe, giving people space to be themselves and explore.
Jane Fonda is your newest Time to Walk guest
Time to Walk is a feature Apple launched earlier this year. It is designed to let users listen to a special guest, typically a celebrity, talk about their life and experiences while they are on a walk, too. And now the legendary actress Jane Fonda is the newest guest — beginning April 19.
Starting on April 19, and in honor of Earth Day, an episode of Time to Walk featuring Jane Fonda will be available. The actor, producer, author, and activist talks about standing up to her fears and the power of taking action to fight climate change. Time to Walk is an inspiring new audio walking experience on Apple Watch for Fitness+ subscribers. It was created to encourage users to walk more often and reap the benefits of one of the healthiest activities in the world.
Apple Fitness+ is priced at $9.99 per month.
