Apple announcement today, it’s adding new workouts and curated dance collections to Fitness+ in time for International Dance Day on April 29. The service is adding additional content to its Artist Spotlight series, which dedicates an entire workout playlist to one artist, with new workouts featuring music from ABBA, BTS and Reine. Every Monday for four weeks, the service will add new workouts featuring each artist.
Workout types include strength, HIIT, dance, treadmill, cycling, yoga, and pilates. Some of the new Fitness+ dance workouts will teach users choreography from BTS music videos, like “Dynamite” and “Permission to Dance.” Fitness+ will also feature a dance workouts section, including six 20-minute workouts on Latin Grooves, Upbeat Anthems, Throwback Hits, and Hip-Hop/R&B playlists.
The service is also unveiling a new workout collection on April 25 that’s designed to “get subscribers dancing any day of the year.” The Collections feature, introduced by Apple in January, is a curated series of workouts and meditations designed to help users achieve their goals. The new dance collection will feature 20-30 minute workouts featuring 80s classics, hip-hop songs and Latin music from around the world.
Apple launched Fitness+ in December 2020 and has since struggled to compete with other subscription-based fitness offerings. Fitness+ is available as standalone subscription for $9.99 per month, or as part of the Apple One Premier plan for $29.95 per month, which gives users access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and iCloud+ with 2TB of storage.
