Apple Fitness+ was unveiled at the company’s September Apple Watch event but an arrival date wasn’t shared other than sometime this fall. Now it’s been announced that the personalized fitness service based around Apple Watch is launching on December 14.
Apple Fitness+ plus will be available as a standalone subscription running $9.99/month or $79.99/year. It is also available to use with Family Sharing in the Apple One Premier bundle that goes for $29.95. For a limited time, Apple is giving a free 3-month trial to the Fitness+ for those buying a new Apple Watch Series 3 or later (or have bought one since September 15). And Best Buy customers will be seeing the trial last 6-months.
To start, Apple Fitness+ will include 10 different categories of workouts. It requires Apple Watch and the ability to use iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV means users can get a workout from anywhere, even without equipment.
Apple Fitness+ will launch with 10 of the most popular workout types, including High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, Cycling, Treadmill (for running and walking), Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown, led by a phenomenal team of trainers whose approach is welcoming to all. The workouts are fueled by inspiring music from today’s top artists designed to keep users motivated from start to finish.
