October 26, 2021

Apple Fitness+, the first fitness experience built around Apple Watch, bringing studio-style workouts and guided meditations to iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, is coming to the UAE and KSA!  Fitness+ is currently available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, and the US. Beginning November 3, 2021, Fitness+ will be available in 15 new countries with the addition of Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.

Fitness+ is available as a standalone subscription, or as a part of the Apple One Premier plan which, where available, also gives customers access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+ and iCloud+ with 2TB of storage. Fitness+ intelligently and seamlessly incorporates key workout metrics users love from Apple Watch for a personalized and immersive experience that users can complete wherever and whenever it is convenient for them. Workouts and guided meditations are led by a diverse and inclusive team of trainers whose approach is welcoming to all, and are inspired to coach all levels, from beginners to fitness enthusiasts. All of the workouts also include a trainer demonstrating modifications, so there’s always someone to follow, no matter a user’s ability.

Workouts are fueled by music from today’s top artists and designed to keep users motivated from start to finish whether their workout is five or 45 minutes long. For Apple Music subscribers, favorite music from Fitness+ workouts can also be easily saved and listened to later, whether in a workout or otherwise. Workouts include High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, Cycling, Pilates, Meditation, Treadmill (for running and walking), Rowing, and Mindful Cooldown.

When choosing a workout, Fitness+ subscribers can use the intuitive filter to choose the trainer, time, and music to fit their mood.

With Fitness+, users can also get moving with Time to Walk — an inspiring audio experience featuring guests from around the world who encourage people to walk more often while they share stories, photos, and songs. All that is needed is an Apple Watch and AirPods or Bluetooth headphones. Fitness+ also has programs designed to help users reach their goals during a specific season of life — like Workouts for Pregnancy, Workouts for Older Adults, Workouts for Beginners, and Meditations for Beginners. Fitness+ also offers a workout program called Get Ready for Snow Season, featuring and designed with two-time Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion skier Ted Ligety, along with Fitness+ trainer Anja Garcia. To prepare users to get back to their favorite winter sports, the program will help build strength, balance, and endurance so users can have more fun on the slopes, all the way to the last run. Fitness+ also has an Artist Spotlight series, where the entire playlist for a workout is dedicated to a single music artist. The series recently added new workouts featuring the music of Billie Eilish, Calvin Harris, Imagine Dragons, and Nicki Minaj.

Fitness+ is available as a subscription service for AED 36.99 per month or AED 149.99 per year.

Fitness+ is included in the Apple One Premier plan, which, where available, also gives customers access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and iCloud+ with 2TB of storage for AED 84.95 per month, and can be shared among six family members.

Three months of Apple Fitness+ are included for customers who purchase Apple Watch Series 3 or later, and one month of Fitness+ is included for existing Apple Watch users.2

Fitness+ can be shared among up to six family members for the same price, making it easy for other Apple Watch users in the same household to enjoy the service. Fitness+ requires an Apple Watch Series 3 or later with watchOS 7.2, and is available when paired with iPhone 6s or later with iOS 14.3.
