Apple Fitness+ is also getting several new features, such as the addition of a pilates workout type on September 27 and group workouts with SharePlay later this year.

"We are excited to be introducing new workouts that bring Fitness+ users more options to stay active and motivated, plus immersive guided Meditation experiences that are approachable for all and easy to fit into your day," said Jay Blahnik, Apple's senior director of Fitness Technologies, in a press release accompanying the announcement.

Apple Fitness+ first launched in December 2020 in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand. The service provides access to a library of workout videos updated on a weekly basis through the Fitness app on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. The service is priced at $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year in the United States, with pricing varying in other countries.

What a random collection of countries, and why not just in all of Europe at once? Just makes no sense at all.

The obvious problem with using subtitles is that it requires the user to WATCH their screen at all times. Not good at all. Try that when you are face down on the floor and your TV is 4 feet above you. Having audio tracks in different languages would be much better. It would also be more expensive/complicated for Apple.
It's opinions like this that make services like this unavailable to millions of people around the world who took time and effort to learn the main language of the world. For me as Swede that can speak English almost as well as a Native language, it sucks to never get services like this within years from their original lanches in English markets, because Companies are afraid of opinions like the one you posted.

I wonder what it is that holds other countries back.
It sure isn’t language problems. Everyone understands english in europe and I do not want a norwegian instructor the day they finally launch it in Norway.

Is it english in France, Germany or Italy? Or is it just subtitled?
