Apple Fitness+, the tech giant’s comprehensive fitness service, is gearing up for an impactful year with several new features and programs to help users achieve their health and wellness goals.

Sound Meditations for Relaxation

Enhancing its meditation offerings, Fitness+ introduces a new meditation theme called “Sound.” This theme provides a unique experience with light guidance from Fitness+ trainers and soothing tones like singing bowls and gongs to create a sense of ease. With seven new sound meditations available in varying durations, users can incorporate relaxation into their routine.

Strength, Core, and Yoga for Golfers

In collaboration with professional golfer Rose Zhang, Fitness+ introduces a specialized workout program designed to enhance strength, stability, and mobility for golfers. The program spans strength, core, and yoga workouts and aims to improve balance, flexibility, and overall performance on the golf course.

Artist Spotlight Series

Music continues to be a crucial element of Fitness+ workouts, and the Artist Spotlight series takes this to the next level. In anticipation of the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show featuring USHER, Fitness+ will release workout playlists featuring iconic halftime performers like Rihanna, Britney Spears, and U2. This series adds a dynamic and motivational element to workouts.

Time to Walk Updates

Time to Walk, the award-winning audio experience on iPhone and Apple Watch, introduces new episodes with guests such as Al Roker, Trixie Mattel, Lilly Singh, Common, and Colman Domingo. Notably, select Time to Walk episodes will now be available on Apple Podcasts for users in 21 countries, even without a Fitness+ subscription.

Ring in the New Year Challenge

Apple Watch users can participate in the Ring in the New Year challenge, earning a limited-edition award by closing all three activity rings for seven consecutive days in January. This initiative aims to motivate users to kickstart their fitness journey in 2024.

Expanded Access to Fitness+

In a significant move, Fitness+ is expanding access by offering free subscriptions with Anytime Fitness memberships. Users trying Anytime Fitness for free can enjoy up to three months of Fitness+ at no cost. Additionally, those joining Anytime Fitness with a qualifying 12 months+ membership get their first 30 days of Fitness+ for free.

With these updates, Apple Fitness+ continues to be at the forefront of delivering a diverse and personalized fitness experience for users worldwide.

These new additions aim to cater to different aspects of well-being, from physical strength and flexibility to mental relaxation and motivation.
