Madonna’s impact on self-acceptance and inclusivity is reflected in the energy and themes of each Artist Spotlight workout
Apple Fitness+ is embracing Pride month by introducing new workouts and meditations that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, including a new Artist Spotlight series that features the music of Madonna, a longtime social activist and ally.
The new series will dedicate an entire workout playlist to the legendary artist, allowing users to immerse themselves in Madonna’s empowering music while engaging in various workout types.
Madonna’s impact on self-acceptance and inclusivity across music, culture and style is reflected in the energy and themes of each Artist Spotlight workout. Trainers leading the workouts will be styled in iconic fashion looks inspired by Madonna. Users can experience workouts in various disciplines, including HIIT, Rowing, Cycling, Core, Treadmill, Strength, Dance and Yoga, all accompanied by Madonna’s hits.
Madonna’s extraordinary career spans over four decades. She holds the distinction of being the first recording artist to have 50 No. 1 hits on any single Billboard chart and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist ever by Guinness World Records. With her immense influence and commitment to social activism, Madonna embodies the values of the LGBTQ+ community and serves as an inspiration to many.
In addition to the Artist Spotlight series featuring Madonna, Apple Fitness+ is dedicating seven new workouts and meditations to celebrate Pride month. These workouts will honor the LGBTQ+ community and feature music playlists by LGBTQ+ artists and allies, further promoting inclusivity and acceptance. Each workout will also incorporate special Pride lighting inspired by the rainbow flag.
Apple Fitness+ is designed to be an inclusive and welcoming fitness and wellness service for individuals at any stage of their journey. The subscription service offers a range of workouts, guided meditations and expert trainers, providing users with the tools they need to achieve their health and wellness goals. With pricing options that include monthly and yearly subscriptions, as well as family sharing capabilities, Apple Fitness+ aims to make fitness accessible to as many people as possible.
Apple’s commitment to the LGBTQ+ community extends beyond Fitness+ and includes support for advocacy organizations such as Equality Federation Institute, Encircle, Equality North Carolina, Equality Texas, GLSEN, Gender Spectrum, Human Rights Campaign, ILGA World, the National Center for Transgender Equality, PFLAG, SMYAL and The Trevor Project.
Apple is also bringing Pride celebrations to its Apple Watch. The Pride Edition Sport Band, matching watch face and iOS wallpaper are now available, showcasing a rainbow of geometric shapes on a white base. Each band is unique due to the individual shaping process that creates subtle variations in the arrangement of the shapes.
