Apple Fitness+ to add kickboxing, Beyoncé workouts

Apple has announced(Opens in a new window) a host of new Fitness+ content starting January 9, including Kickboxing, a new meditation program for sleep, and seven new workouts featuring tracks from Beyoncé’s latest album, Renaissance.

Kickboxing will be added as a new type of full-body cardio workout, with each workout consisting of a distinct round of moves followed by a final round, which will be a combination of all the moves users have learned in an “all-out” one . -minute interval. Users don’t need equipment and can choose 10, 20 and 30 minute workouts.

Three new trainers will also be joining the fitness app: They include Muay Thai fighter Nez Dally who will lead Kickboxing training, HIIT trainer Brian Cochrane and strength trainer Jenn Lau.

Starting January 9, Fitness+ subscribers will be able to choose from seven workouts featuring Beyoncé’s music. They are cycling, dance, HIIT, pilates, strength, treadmill and yoga.

Apple said the energy and theme of each Beyoncé soundtracked workout is “inspired” by her album Renaissanceits “notion of rediscovering what makes individuals unique and powerful.”

If Beyoncé isn’t quite to your taste, don’t worry: Fitness+ will add Foo Fighters-themed workouts on January 16th, and Bad Bunny-soundtracked workouts will drop on the platform a week later on January 23rd.

Alongside pop music and quick workouts, the fitness app will launch a new meditation theme on January 9, the tenth, called Sleep. Apple says new sleep meditations will be added “every week” and that the new Meditations for Sleep program consists of “four 20-minute meditations” that end with “five minutes of relaxing music.”

The meditations, the company said, can be done in “any order at any time,” and each mediation uses different techniques to help users rest.

For users looking to walk more often, Fitness+ is adding new audio episodes from inspiring public figures to the Time to Walk series. The first drop of new content on January 9 will be with actor Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis, Apple says, will reflect on “the importance of embracing life’s most unexpected moments, the transformative power of serving others in need, and how the death of a beloved public figure led her to a daily ritual of self-reflection.”

Each week, new content from public figures, from talk show host Amber Ruffin, American figure skater Nathan Chen and actor Jason Segel, will be added to the Time to Walk series.

And finally, the app is set to introduce two new collections curated to help users reach their fitness goals. The first of the two, titled 6 Weeks to Restart Your Fitness, is designed to help users build a new habit by exercising every day and launches on January 9. The second, Level Up Your Core Training, launches on January 23.
