Apple has announced a range of new content for its fitness subscription service Fitness+. The $9.99 per month service is getting a new Kickboxing workout type, meditation sleep theme, a Beyoncé Artist Spotlight, new Time to Walk guests, and three new trainers, all starting January 9.
Kickboxing is a full-body cardio workout, with multiple routines and workout lengths of 10, 20, or 30 minutes. No equipment is required. The workouts will be led by existing Fitness+ instructor Jamie-Ray Hartshorne (who competed professionally in Muay Thai in Thailand) and Nez Dally, a new instructor who made history as the first female Muay Thai fighter to compete in Thailand wearing a hijab.
Two other new trainers will join the Fitness+ team in January: Brian Cochrane for HIIT and Jenn Lau for Strength.
There are currently nine meditation themes in Fitness+, and Apple is adding another in January: Sleep. New sleep meditations will be added every week, and each practice can be done as part of a relaxation routine or while you are drifting off. Apple will get users into the new Sleep Meditations with a Meditations for Sleep program: four 20-minute meditations that conclude with five minutes of relaxing music.
The Artist Spotlight Series (entire workout playlists dedicated to one artist) will expand with Beyoncé on January 9, Foo Fighters on January 16, and Bad Bunny on January 23.
Time to Walk, the Apple Watch-focused “walk with a celebrity” feature, will enter its fifth season in January. The first guest is Jamie Lee Curtis, with additional guests joining each week including Amber Ruffin, Jason Segel, José Andrés, Nina Hoss, Colman Domingo, Nathan Chen and Sheryl Lee Ralph. And finally, two new collections will be added to the Fitness+ workout library in January. 6 weeks to restart your fitness debuts January 9 and Increase your core training available from January 23.
Subscribers can access Fitness+ on an iPhone 8 or later with iOS 16.1 or Apple Watch Series 3 or later with watchOS 7.2 or later paired with an iPhone 6s with iOS 14.3 or later.
