Apple Website Highlights Workout Equipment Used in Fitness+ Videos

With the launch of Apple Fitness+, Apple now has a section on its workout for Fitness+ equipment, which offers links to buy the workout items that are used in Fitness+ videos.

Many of the Fitness+ workouts are designed to work with no equipment at all, but some do require specific equipment. Cycling workouts, for example, require a cycling bike, while treadmill workouts require a treadmill.

The only fitness-specific items that Apple actually sells through its store are Manduka yoga blocks and mats, which Apple began offering last week. Other equipment links to outside stores where the devices can be purchased, with the exception of a few stands that Apple offers.

For dumbbells, Apple recommends the Rogue Rubber Hex Dumbbells, which are, like many dumbbells at the current time, out of stock. Many people have turned to strength training in their homes, which has led to a lack of available equipment.

Apple recommends Schwinn Indoor Cycling Bikes for cycling workouts, along with the Life Fitness Row HX Trainer for rowing and the TechnoGym MyRun and SkillRun for treadmill workouts.

Though Apple recommends this equipment on its website, the Apple Fitness+ workouts are designed to be equipment agnostic and will work with the treadmills, cycles, and other devices that you already own.

I didn’t like Peloton, I can’t stand their liberal instructors. Right now I’m subscribed to SoulCycle at Home ($40/mo) and Apple Fitness Plus.
No one tell this guy all these multi-racial teams of fitness instructors are likely to be extremely liberal, as well. :)

I was going to ask how this even comes up in the course of a workout.

“For dumbbells, Apple recommends...”

But what does Apple recommend for its smarter customers?

Expect $50 for a mat that cost $2 (with free shipping) from China.
Not sure about the manufacture price, but speaking from experience (5+ years practicing yoga) Manduka mats are extremely high quality, they don't stretch, have good grip, good padding and they don't deteriorate with time (I mean the Pro line, which I use myself). They also handle moisture (sweat) well, which is an important factor if you live in a warm country (like me) or do hot yoga, or just sweat a lot (like me).

I paid around $200 for mine, but the Manduka Pros are designed to basically outlive the user.

Not sure if people doing crunches on the floor need this kind of quality, but for some real yoga - especially if someone is as heavy as me - there is nothing better. Totally worth the money.
