What you need to know
- The first guided meditation and pilates workouts are now available to Apple Fitness+ subscribers.
- The new options are available on Apple Watch and other Apple devices.
Fans of Apple Fitness+ now have some new workouts to take for a spin. As promised earlier this month, guided meditation and pilates workouts are now available as of today.
The guided meditation workouts in particular build on the popularity of the previous Mindful Cooldowns workouts, Apple said in a statement.
Pilates workouts are designed to give people a low-impact offering, perfect for people who may be a little older or less likely to take part in other workout options. Sessions are available up to 30 minutes in length, with the shortest option just 10 minutes.
Users can head into the Fitness app on their Apple Watch to take the new workouts for a spin.
The two new workouts join an already strong list of options, while Workouts to Get Ready for Snow Season is a new series designed to help people prepare for the powder. Support for SharePlay is also in the works, allowing up to 32 people to work out together.
