Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) has finally launched its long-anticipated Fitness+ service to provide the best workout experience. Starting from today, Fitness+ is available for Apple Watch users with 180 workouts across 10 different categories. The service works across iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

Apple first announced the service back in September when introducing its Apple Watch Series 6 during Apple Event 2020. Now Fitness+ is automatically included in the Fitness app on iPhone and Workout app on Apple Watch after users update to iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2.

The price of the streaming service is $9.99 per month and $79.99 per year. It is also a part of the $29.99 per month Apple One Premier bundle. The first month of using Fitness+ will be free. A free three-month trial for Fitness+ is available for those who purchased an ‌Apple Watch Series 6‌, Series 3, or SE after September 15. Fitness+ can also be shared among up to six family members for the same price, making it easy for other Apple Watch users in the household to enjoy the service.

Let us see what is special about Fitness+ and what are its advantages over rivals like Nike Training Club, 7 Minute Workout, and others.

Apple Fitness+ Features

Firstly, Fitness+ offers workouts for everyone regardless of fitness level. It is useful for both beginners and those who go to the gym on a regular basis. There is even a starter collection of videos for those who are “brand new to exercise”. This is a sort of introductory course to each of the app’s disciplines. The service includes 10 types of workouts: High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, Cycling, Treadmill (for running and walking), Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown. For those who are not sure about what to do on any given day, Fitness+ recommends workouts based on what they already enjoy. There is also an intuitive filter to choose the trainer, time, workout, and music to fit users’ mood.

Secondly, when working out, Fitness+ provides data on pulse rate, time of exercising, calories burnt. There is also an activity column that shows the user’s rating among other Fitness+ subscribers.

Further, the Fitness+ team of trainers includes 21 trainers whom you might have seen on Instagram or other fitness apps. You may hear their competent comments while working out. The trainers will provide recommendations on how to limber up and how to safely do exercise.

Each week, Fitness+ delivers new content across all workout types with a variety of trainers, times, and music.
