Apple Fitness+ Adds Workouts for Older Adults and Pregnant Women

Apple has announced that it’s adding new workouts to its Fitness+ service for older adults and pregnant women to make it easier for them to work out. Apple is also adding more beginner workouts for high-intensity interval training, strength training, and yoga. (We’ve heard from some people that the current Apple Fitness+ workouts were way too hard, so these changes will be welcome.) Additionally, Apple is adding Jonelle Lewis as a new trainer for yoga and “mindful cooldown,” and is putting out a special episode of Time to Walk with Jane Fonda for Earth Day. All of these new things will be available starting 19 April 2021.

Have you tried Apple Fitness+, and if so, have you stuck with it? Will these new offerings do more to interest you in the service?

  1. I’ve really liked Fitness+ thus far. It is friendly, inclusive (people from all sorts of backgrounds, they use some sign language, they sometimes speak Spanish or Tagalog or perhaps other things, and there’s Amir, a trainer with an artificial leg, a pregnant trainer, etc), they are au courant re Black History Month or Intl Women’s Day, and there is just a never-ending variety of workouts, which is key for me to not get bored with it all. I am 60 and have not found the workouts too hard—all you need to do is modify as they suggest if/when necessary. I hope they will be clear about the new “easier” workouts because I don’t think I’ll want to do those. I have really enjoyed the variety, and probably do about 8-10 workouts per week in HIIT, Strength, Core, and sometimes Cool Down (although I can cool down without assistance, so…) What I’ve most liked is the upbeat friendly attitudes, the current music, the variety, and just how darned easy it is to actually do the workouts. I use my phone to access and stream to my Apple TV. So easy! I am a big fan, and I’ve NEVER loved working out… just really impressed!
