Apple Fitness+ Adds Golf Workouts, Super Bowl Halftime Tracks

The tech giant is as committed as ever to the fitness and wellness space, rolling out a series of enhancements to its workout product

Apple Fitness+ is rolling out updates this coming Monday that will help users start the new year off right. After a tumultuous several weeks for the company with the Apple Watch ban, the move demonstrates that Apple remains committed to and focused on the fitness and wellness space. 

First, Fitness+ is launching a new meditation theme: Sound. After the success of the Sleep meditation theme, Sound is the latest to focus on creating an atmosphere of ease for relaxation and restoration. The meditations range from five to twenty minutes and use tones like singing bowls and resonant gongs. Apple is also releasing new episodes of “Time to Walk,” one of its most popular series. New episodes feature Al Roker, Trixie Mattel, Lilly Singh and Common. Apple Watch users can also pursue a limited-edition award, “Ring in the New Year,” by closing all three Activity Rings for seven consecutive days in January. 

As the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show approaches, Fitness+ is also releasing Artist Spotlight series dedicated to former headliners. Rihanna’s series will be released on January 8th, Britney Spears’ on January 15th, U2’s on January 22nd, and Usher on February 5th

Apple is also releasing a new workout program designed for an often-overlooked group of athletes in connected fitness: golfers. Rose Zhang, a rising professional golf star, joined Apple Fitness+ trainer Kyle Ardill in the new program that was inspired by her training regimen. The program combines strength, core, and yoga workouts to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and mobility. 

“To play at my best, the training that I do off the course is so important,” Zhang said. “Incorporating strength, core, and mobility workouts helps make sure my body and mind are ready. Whether people are new to the sport or want to advance their skills, I’m excited that the workouts in this program on Fitness+ will help users feel more confident in their swing and have fun on the course.”

The Fitness+ updates come as Apple continues to push further into fitness and wellness. In November, Apple partnered with Anytime Fitness to provide an omnichannel experience for users. Anytime Fitness memberships in the U.S. and Canada now include a free Fitness+ subscription. Fitness+ users joining Anytime Fitness with a membership of more than a year will also get their first 30 days free. 

“Starting the new year can mean kicking off a fitness and wellbeing journey, restarting after a long break, or looking to take it up a level with a new challenge,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s vice president of fitness technologies. “From sound meditations to help you relax, to building strength for an improved golf swing or turning up the volume on your workouts, Fitness+ has something for everyone to help them stay active and support their wellbeing in the new year.”
