Fitness+ was a godsend during shutdowns and quarantines, and it still is when I don't want to go all the way to the gym.. or when I have limited time.. or if I don't want to wear a mask when I work out. Guided Meditation is a welcome addition. However, a true partner workout solution with stats is much needed.

I was thrilled to see group workouts as me and my partner have wanted to workout together from the start..... but then it turns out she has to be ANYWHERE ELSE in the world apart from right beside me. ?
Seriously. This was a no-brainer. Why can't couples do a workout together in front of the Apple TV with both stats showing up? They are literally doing group workouts RIGHT THERE.

Never mind that shareplay workouts are only supported on the apple tv "through airplay". Aka. not at all. :rolleyes:
