Apple Fitness+ launching in 15 new countries next week
Apple has announced that Apple Fitness+ will be launching in 15 new countries next week on November 3, bringing the pay-monthly fitness subscription service to Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates.
Apple Fitness+ gives access to studio-style workouts on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Using the Workouts features on Apple Watch, the service integrates personal metrics such as heart rate and calorie burn within the on-screen sessions, making classes personalized and interactive.
With the launch of iOS 15.1 today, friends can workout together in sync via FaceTime with SharePlay, with workouts recorded in English, with subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
Apple Fitness+ workouts include High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, Cycling, Pilates, Meditation, Treadmill (for running and walking), Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown.
“We created Fitness+ so everyone would have a place they feel inspired and motivated, no matter where they are on their fitness journey. We are so excited to be available to millions more people as we bring Fitness+ to 15 new countries next week, and can’t wait for them to meet our welcoming trainer team,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s vice president of Fitness Technologies. “We also think our users are going to love working out or meditating together with SharePlay. It’s a really fun way to connect with friends and family, even trade some words of encouragement or friendly smack talk, while also making progress toward closing their rings.”
