Apple Fitness+ will get Collections and Time to Run services next week. The former is a “curated set of workouts and meditations from the Fitness+ library”, while the latter is an “audio running experience” designed to enhance users’ running. The new services will be linked to Apple Watch. Next week, Apple Fitness+ will also introduce the third season of Time to Walk, along with a new Artist Spotlight featuring music from renowned artists.
Through a blog post, Apple has announced a number of new services for Apple Fitness+, which will be rolled out on January 10. As mentioned, the new services include Collections and Time to Run. The first lists a series of workouts and meditations that help users achieve their fitness goals. Six collections will be available at launch: 30-Day Core Challenge, Improve Your Posture with Pilates, Perfect Your Yoga Balance Poses, Run Your First 5K, Strengthen Your Back, Stretch Your Hips, and Relax for a Better Bedtime.
Time to Run is touted as an “audio running experience designed to help users become more consistent and better runners.” Each episode of Time to Run features coaching tips from Emily Fayette, Jamie-Ray Hartshorne, Sam Sanchez, Scott Carvin and Cory Wharton-Malcolm. Each episode of Time to Run on Apple Fitness+ features motivational and stimulating playlists curated by the trainers. It launches with three episodes with a new episode every Monday.
Apple will also release the third season of Time to Walk, a podcast of sorts where celebrities, musicians, health experts and activists share their motivational stories with Fitness+ subscribers. New guests will be featured on the episode each week, and the first episode of season three will feature Rebel Wilson. Other notable guests include Hasan Minhaj, Bernice King, Chris Meloni, and more.
Finally, the Artist Spotlight will feature new workouts featuring music from Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, Shakira and The Beatles. Each playlist is dedicated to one artist, and on the next four Mondays, Apple will release new workouts featuring music from these artists. Exercise types include Cycling, Dance, HIIT, Strength, Treadmill, and Yoga. Music genres include Chill Vibes, Everything Rock, Hip-Hop/R&B, Latin Grooves and Upbeat Anthems. Apple Music and Apple One subscribers also get access to the new Artist Spotlights.
