Apple fitness plus feature
During the last Apple event earlier this month, Apple announced it would be expanding Fitness+ with Guided Meditations. This new workout type builds on the current Mindful Cooldowns workout, allowing Fitness+ users to "reduce everyday stress, develop a greater sense of awareness, and build resilience to face life's challenges." Guided Meditations sessions in 10 and 20 minute lengths will be available.

Alongside Strength, Core, and Yoga workouts, Fitness+ today also gained Pilates, a new low-impact workout that focuses on improving strength and flexibility. Pilates sessions will be guided and headed by Marimba Gold-Watts and Darryl Whiting, both professionals in fitness. Fitness+ is also gaining a new "Workouts to Get Ready for Snow Season" guide with workouts to improve skiers' and snowboarders' performance ahead of the winter.

Later this fall, Apple Fitness+ will be expanding to 15 additional countries, including Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and the UAE. Fitness+ will also be gaining group workouts powered by SharePlay later this year.

The absolute best new feature in Fitness+ that I've never seen mentioned anywhere are the filters. They used to be terrible, it was just filter by trainer/music/time but they added some new ones now. You can now do a strength workout and choose upper body, lower body or total body. In HIIT you can now filter by workouts that use dumbbells. Each program has its own set of filters. Game changer, it was so annoying when you wanted to do an upper body workout for 30 minutes before. You literally had to check the preview of each 30 minute strength workout until you found one.

The only filter missing is "Easy, normal, hard, advanced". You can go by trainer I guess, Anya, Bakari and Kyle will kick your butt. Would still be nice though.

Almost every day. I try to do a 20 minute cycling video before work. Then sometimes yoga or strength during my lunch break.
