The Cupertino company’s award-winning fitness service will introduce a bunch of new offerings for the New Year.
Starting on Monday, January 9, Apple Fitness+ shall be adding Kickboxing as a new workout type. It is an all-new total-body cardio session, with each workout comprising of a certain round of moves followed by one final round, and then combined in the end for an all-out one-minute duration. No equipment is needed, and workouts can last from 10, 20 up to 30 minutes. The kickboxing sessions will be headed by Fitness+ trainers Jamie-Ray Hartshorne and Nez Dally.
Alongside the new kickboxing sessions, Apple Fitness+ has also included a new theme in the meditation sessions called “Sleep”, which will showcase new sleep meditations once a week. This is the latest addition to the Meditation library that consists of nine other themes, in which all are designed to help users relax and get a good night’s sleep.
The fifth season of “Time to Walk” has also been added to Apple Fitness+, with guests including actress Jamie Lee Curtis, actor Jason Segel, talk show host Amber Ruffin, and Olympic champion figure skater Nathan Chen.
Additionally, the Artist Spotlight workout series will also launch a new playlist featuring songs from Renaissance, Beyonce’s latest album.
Apple Fitness+ will also release two new Collections – 6 Weeks to Restart Your Fitness and Level Up Your Core Training. It will also expand its lineup of trainers too. In addition to Dally, two more new trainers will join the team this January: Brian Cochrane for HIIT and Jenn Lau for strength workouts.
Previously, users were required to wear an Apple Watch whenever they wanted to do some Apple Fitness+ sessions. That has now changed with the release of iOS 16, and the Fitness+ service is easily accessible to anyone with an iPhone via the Fitness app.
Apple Fitness+ is a subscription service priced at $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year, and can be included in the Apple One Premier bundle plan which can be shared with up to five other family members.
