Apple Fitness+ Takes Over Apple's Home Page to Help You Reach Your New Year's Goals

With 2023 now upon us, many people are setting New Year's resolutions and one of the more popular ones is always a desire to get into better shape. To entice those looking for some help reaching that goal, Apple has turned over its home page to Fitness+, the company's subscription service with thousands of workouts across nearly a dozen different types.

apple fitness year of you
Kicking off with the tagline "Welcome to the year of you," Apple's home page also notes that "Now all you need is iPhone," a nod to a change in iOS 16.1 that allows Fitness+ to be used without an Apple Watch.

While Fitness+ can be used with only an ‌iPhone‌, an Apple Watch offers more utility by allowing real‑time, personalized metrics to be displayed onscreen, including your heart rate, Burn Bar, and activity rings.

Apple Fitness+ is priced at $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, or it can be bundled with other Apple services in an Apple One Premier subscription. A single Apple Fitness+ subscription can be shared with up to five other family members and it comes with a free one-month trial for all users. Users who purchase a new ‌iPhone‌, Apple Watch, iPad, or Apple TV qualify for a free three-month trial.

It can take over all the pages it wants, it remains an overpriced mediocre offering.
Hard disagree.

It’s a great compliment in the winter (it snows here) for indoor exercises. They’re inclusive of people who may not have the same range of motion or be at the instructors fitness level and they make you feel like you’re welcome if you’re overweight (they have overweight people in the workouts too). Quiet honestly, no other service provides what they do (health tracking on screen, music that is playing, inclusive alternates to the workout, some sign language, captions, etc.). Wife and I use it regularly.

AF+ changed my life. It’s supremely motivating to me. Went from completely sedentary to exercising 1+ hours a day, everyday.

Could you do something on your own, or just watch YouTube videos? Yes. But if you want consistently high quality instruction with a great variety of content - that is accessible to many fitness and experience levels - you can’t go wrong. Got nothing to lose if you can get a free trial.

Edit: and $80 for a year seems like a steal to me especially considering you get access to all the mindfulness/meditation content as well as more traditional exercises.

While the Apple fitness/health apps are unimportant to me (and at times I‘ve criticized them) this is a wonderfully positive post to read. If AF+ helps to light and keep that fire burning it is well worth it. Best wishes on your 2023 fitness goals!
