Apple Fitness+ Detailed Walkthrough, Top Review and First Look Videos!

  • POSTED ON: December 15, 2020

The new Apple’s Fitness+ app is getting great reviews across the board!

Apple has just launched a workout video service that is quite similar to other app-based exercise programs. It includes a variety of videos that are led by specialized coaches and instructors who guide users through a bunch of activities like yoga, treadmill, and other indoor exercise, etc.

Fitness+ is not as sophisticated and complicated like its competitors which make it a better and much improved option. Its deep integration and workout routines make the app a solid choice for the fans of the company. In addition to an iPad, you need to have the Apple Watch to sign up for this service. You can also use Apple TV or iPhone instead of an iPad – but the Apple Watch is a must!

In this tech guide, we’ve discussed Apple watch features and the Apple’s fitness video with its overall experience!

As an Apple user, the whole idea seems promising! But here’s a problem – it requires too many expensive devices in comparison. Like, If you use other rival apps like Swear and Fitbod, you don’t need the Apple Watch. In fact, those apps are easily compatible with other wearables.

But here’s what we’ve gathered from the experience so far. The video production and music selection are highly rated. The instructors also seem professional and they really know how to work with you. In addition, there are 10 workout categories, and every week, new categories will be added.

When you’re exercising and using equipment like a treadmill, its best to watch the videos on a phone or tablet. If you use an Apple TV, the service would be even better because you can then follow standing workout effectively.

And you’re bound to develop a favorite trainer! Bakari is super fun to sweat it out with. He used classics from the 80s and makes the routine feel almost like a cake walk. Kim, who is an expert in the same category, might come across as tough, so you would lean more towards Bakari. Jessica is encouraging and pleasant as well.

Every instructor has a page dedicated to their biography, so you can view it and decide who you want to work out with. There’s also a list of videos as well as a link to their Instagram accounts.

Now here’s a positive thing that has come out of this integration requirement. You can start, pause, and end the videos directly from your Apple Watch. Hence, add a song of your choice to the Music app playlists. The device helps in logging into the Fitness+ user’s account without leaving any data trail behind. This will work well with you if you’re traveling.

With all said, its best to say that Fitness+ is best suited for beginners and moderate users. You may not be a fan if you’re an advanced user. You’ll find that the videos are labeled as “absolute beginner” or “typical”.

Also, don’t be upset to find no black diamond workouts there. Furthermore, Fitness app doesn’t get performance readouts from machines that you’re working on –rival apps do tend to provide that. You will only find heart rate data from the Apple Watch and calorie count.

Another possible problem is that the app doesn’t keep track of the progress of your overall journey. Other apps like My Strava have options of tracking of the heart rate, perceived exertion, and also a goal tracker.

Fitness+ is a service that focuses on making your exercising routines more fun. Like, it recommends you songs and bring new element to your workout.

Now comes the most important question: How much does it cost? A subscription to Fitness+ will cost you $10 monthly and if you want to pay the annual amount then it will cost you $80. And the best thing about this app is that it can be shared with six family members. This makes it incredibly cheap when compared to other fitness apps.

If you’ve got an Apple Watch, you can get access to the Fitness+ app for free for the first month. And if you’re a new Apple Watch buyer, then you’ll get this app for free for three months.

Let’s just say that Fitness+ is perfect for people who’ve been slumping their way through the pandemic. It’s time they get off the couch and make the move!

Apple Fitness+ is the top fitness app as obvious from this and many other Apple Fitness+ reviews. It literally takes you on the next era of fitness with its six-minute intro video.
