Apple Fitness+ Initial Impressions

Yesterday Apple released Fitness+, their new workout app that works through the Apple Watch. The programs are divided into nine categories: HIIT, yoga, core, strength, treadmill, cycling, rowing, dance, and mindful cooldown. You can filter workouts by type, time, trainers, and music. I tried a 10 minute yoga session and a 5 minute cooldown last night, and then just did a 10 minute beginner core workout. I love this app so far. 😍 You can use it on your iPhone, iPad, or AppleTV but you need to have an Apple Watch Series 3 or later.

I used it on the AppleTV and it’s so cool to see my stats on the tv screen. I also love the way the trainers instruct the classes. They focus on helping you move and work your body in the right way, without being boring or distracting with side stories or too much humor. Oh and they also have modifications for the workouts to accommodate different levels. With the three workouts I tried so far, there were three modifications shown by three different trainers in the studio together. So you can easily switch between modifications according to your condition.

I haven’t worked out for months. 😖😅 So I decided to start with some short beginner work and build my way up. Honestly, the 10 minute yoga session yesterday kicked my ass (yeah I’m that out of shape😂 ) but that’s why I’m making changes to take care of my health. I’m really looking forward to continuing with this app. If you already own an Apple Watch, you can get a month free of the service, and if you buy a new one, you can get 3 months free. Right now I have an Apple One Individual subscription but plan to upgrade to Premier (adds Fitness+, News+, more iCloud storage). I want to give it a try first during my free month to see if one, I’ll really enjoy it and two, if I’ll actually stick with using it. If you’re looking for a new way to get in better shape and have access to Fitness+, I would definitely recommend that you check it out.
