What is Fitness+?
Apple Fitness+ is a new fitness service powered by Apple Watch. You can choose from a catalogue of workouts led by expert trainers. In-session metrics, like heart rate and calories burned, are synced to your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, so you don’t have to take your eyes away from your workout to see how you’re doing. It’s like your Apple Watch is on the screen.
Do I need an Apple Watch?
Yes. Apple Watch personalises your Apple Fitness+ experience by integrating your personal metrics, like your heart rate and the calories you burn, into every workout. It brings them to life on the screen to keep you informed and motivated. To use Apple Fitness+ on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, you will need an Apple Watch Series 3 or later.
Where can I add Apple Fitness+?
If you own an Apple Watch, Apple Fitness+ will automatically appear as the centre tab in the Fitness app on your iPhone. For iPad, the Fitness app is available for Apple Watch users to download from the App Store. The Fitness app is also available on Apple TV.
Does Apple Fitness+ offer all levels of fitness?
Yes. Fitness+ is created for everyone from beginners to experts, with modifications for all levels in every workout. You choose the type of workout, the time and the trainer — it’s totally up to you. There’s also an instructional program called Absolute Beginner for people who need to learn the basics.
Do I need any special equipment?
It depends on the workout you choose. While many don’t require special equipment, for some you need things like dumbbells, a yoga mat, a stationary bike, a rowing machine or a treadmill.
Does Apple Fitness+ keep my data private?
As with all of Apple’s products and services, we have designed Apple Fitness+ with privacy in mind and to give you control over your information. All your Fitness+ workout recommendations are powered using on-device intelligence. And when using Apple Fitness+, your calories and the workouts and trainers you choose will not be stored along with your Apple ID.
