Apple Fitness + prepares its imminent launch with promotions and posts on Instagram

Apple Fitness + prepares its launch before the end of this 2020. And things seem to be accelerating, even without an official date for its availability. This is how we can deduce it from the growing number of posts on social networks and advertising from various retail chains in the US. Apple’s new online instructor-led fitness service is about to be unveiled.

The imminent launch of Apple Fitness +

Retailers such as Best Buy are launching promotions on the sale of the Apple Watch that include several free months of Fitness +. And the Instagram profiles of the different instructors of the service have been creating excitement with their own publications. This is clear from the information collected by 9to5Mac and MacRumors.

Apple Fitness + monitors have posted on their respective profiles a photo showing your activity in one of the gyms and company rooms. We have Scott Carvin, Jhon Gonzalez and Emily Fayette among them, out of a total of 21 instructors.

Apple Fitness + will initially be available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States and will debut before the end of 2020.

Notable is the case of Amir Ekbatani, a former UCLA football player who lost his left leg in 2012 in a traffic accident. A very inspiring story of overcoming. Apple has had instructors at different stages of life, from Ekbatani’s case to that of Fayette, who recently gave birth and is working on her recovery. And it also has senior monitors.

In the profiles of these instructors you can see how their activity stops almost completely since September 15, date Apple Fitness + was unveiled. As of that day, they have hardly published photos on their Instagram account. Until last week, when they all posted a photo commenting on their participation in the service and promoting its imminent launch.

Apple Fitness + and its possible launch with iOS 14.3

Apple Fitness + will launch only in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States at a price of $ 9.99 per month, with a $ 79.95 annual fee. Also, it is as part of the Apple One Premier subscription, which costs $ 29.95 per month and can be shared between 6 people. It is unknown when it will debut in other countries, although it will surely be necessary to record new classes with native instructors in each country or region.

Apple Fitness + integrates with the Apple Watch, which is why the company offers three months free with the purchase of the watch (Best Buy, therefore, adds an additional three months in its offer). Classes are held from the Fitness app, old “Activity”, on the iPhone. But they can also be enjoyed from the iPad and Apple TV.

The Apple Watch is integrated into the screen that we are using, showing the progress of our rings and the performance of our activity at that time. As an addition, Apple Music plays its own role tooWell, we can choose the music we want in each activity. We thus have a complete ecosystem at our service.

For all this, iOS 14.3 is believed, watchOS 7.2 and Apple TV 14.3 will bring the service support in their update. The company typically adds new features and services with software releases like this one. In the coming weeks, we will leave doubts.
