Six Major Benefits of Using Apple Fitness+

Something for Everyone

If you’re just starting your fitness journey, you can access a Workouts for Beginners program as well as coaching to help you stay motivated and active. But if you’re an athlete in training, you can leverage more advanced sessions focused on improving areas like endurance, strength, and speed.

Seamless Apple Integration

Apple Fitness+ smoothly operates across your existing Apple products, and can be found in the Fitness App. Once your subscription is activated, simply access video workouts and meditations on iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV.

The deep integration with Apple Watch also sets Apple Fitness+ apart. Users with an Apple Watch can see personalized metrics on screen such as heart rate or calories burned. Your exercise routine gets captured through just the Apple Watch. Workout metrics seamlessly feed into your fitness dashboard for at-a-glance progress.

Premium Instruction

Quality of the instruction plays a huge role in an effective fitness regimen, and Apple Fitness+ has partnered with renowned trainers across 12 workout types. These professionals guide you through studio-style classes by demonstrating movements, sharing modification suggestions, and encouraging you to hit your rep or timing goals. 

The instructions speak to all levels, giving beginners safe starting pointers while still offering advanced athletes tips on how to up the intensity or weights.

Wide Variety of Classes

Exploring different fitness modalities keeps your routine feeling fresh. With over 5,000 on-demand workouts ranging from just 5 minutes to 45 minutes, Apple Fitness+ serves up tremendous class variety.

The workouts span 12 different types: Strength, HIIT, Yoga, Core, Pilates, Dance, Kickboxing, Cycling, Treadmill, Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown. Filter classes by trainer, style, duration, and more to match each session to your exact interests and time available. The innovative Stacks feature allows users to seamlessly combine workouts and meditations for a personalized experience. With thousands of videos on the platform, there’s something for every fitness journey.

Real-Time Metrics

Monitoring your fitness progress gives you a sense of momentum and reminds you why the effort is worthwhile. During each session, your Apple Watch records and provides detailed real-time feedback on heart rate, calories burned, and other valuable metrics. The Fitness app shows your progress over time, so you know if you’re doing as well as you were before - or even better. Trends give you a quick snapshot of how you’re doing on your Move, Exercise, and Stand goals, as well as other key metrics compared to your past performance, so you can make sure that you’re on track. 

The innovative Stacks feature in Fitness+ allows users to seamlessly combine workouts and meditations for a personalized experience. 

Mental Wellbeing Support

Mental wellness is a critical part of overall health. Use of services in Gympass’ emotional health category usage rose by 74% in last year, showing that a holistic approach to wellbeing is more popular than ever.

This is why Apple Fitness+ offers a variety of guided meditations to complement your physical training. You can select meditations based on duration, focus or trainer to recharge. Thematic sessions cultivate better sleep, focus, calm, and more. You can watch meditation videos, or listen to them as audio-only sessions on the Apple Watch’s Mindfulness app.
