Fitness+ Subscribers Now Have Nearly 300 Workouts to Choose From

Apple on Monday added over two dozen new video workout sessions to Fitness+, continuing a recent trend of building out the catalog of its fledgling subscription service on a weekly basis.

Fitness+ launched December 14, 2020, and is designed to help Apple Watch owners keep fit through a series of guided workouts that are available across multiple workout categories. As you follow along with Fitness+ routines, the Apple Watch tracks your movement, workout length, calories burned, heart rate, and more, just like other workouts.

In the latest motivational introductory video, trainer Bakari introduces the new workouts like so:

Here at Fitness+ more than two dozen workouts just dropped, like Sam's 30-minute treadmill which challenges your endurance, whether you're walking or running. For a workout that needs no equipment at all, I teach 10-minute hit with four total body moves. Each move is inspired by different sports like basketball and soccer, which go perfectly with the song "No Hands" by Waka Flocka Flame. That's what's new at Fitness+ to help you close your rings. Let's go!

In all, Apple has added 26 new Fitness+ workouts covering all video categories, which include cycling, strength, yoga, HIIT, core, dance, treadmill, mindful cool down, and rowing. That takes the total number of workouts in the Fitness+ catalog to 293 so far.

Fitness+ costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, which breaks down to $6.67 per month. For that price, up to six family members total can use the Fitness+ service. Fitness+ is also included in the Apple One Premier bundle, which is priced at $29.99 per month and also offers ‌‌Apple Music‌‌, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and 2TB iCloud storage.

This is good and I use the service regularly because it's "free" as part of what I'm already subscribed to. But Apple needs to up their game in terms of user experience. People want to list workouts by difficulty, they want to know if HIIT includes jumping or not, they want to know if strength workouts use heavy or not heavy dumbbells.

Why are they always smiling in those videos?
Because they're "super" excited, "super" stoked, "super" thrilled. etc etc.

I actually think Apple fitness is really good. it fits my needs well. However the scripts the PTs use are very borderline cringefest. I appreciate the happy vibe and actually like it mostly but sometimes it’s a bit stepford housewives.

A better way to sort / filter / discover those 300 workouts would go a long way. It’s starting to feel like wading through YouTube.

It’s an especially poor experience on Apple TV. There’s no way to expand workout details, so you can’t see critical info (like the weight of dumbbells you need). Filtering by equipment would be even better.

You also can’t access your ‘My Workouts’ from Apple TV. So far, I find the experience frustrating all-around.

I tried it but it’s far too limited. If I wanted to do a lower body workout, there was no way of filtering them to find the right one. The lack of AirPlay 2 support with TVs is a massive limitation. With some types of exercise, it’s simply not safe trying to perform the workout with only a tiny screen. Hopefully Apple will sort out the UX issues and allow AirPlay in a future updated.
