Apple’s fitness service “Fitness +”, which was launched a year ago, has been doing well in Germany for two weeks. We tried it for you and summarized our records. – Report by Alexander Bergman
The basic requirement for using Apple Fitness + is (unfortunately) that you have an Apple Watch. You will find Fitness + in a well-known fitness app; You still need to download the Fitness app from the AppStore on your iPad and AppleTV.
There are different games
Apple offers 11 games: Meditation, Hit, Yoga, Core, Weight Training, Pilates, Dancing, Cycling, Treadmill, Rowing and Mindful Cool-Down.
Logical: “Time to go”, during which you can follow up the conversation with a key person, which is only available on the iPhone or Apple Watch.
The application is well-structured, above you will find direct access to all the games, there are various filters through which you can search for tutorials, for example with or without help. Do you ever not have time for sports? It doesn’t always have to be 45 minutes, even if it shows short units of 5-10 minutes. In addition, Apple offers changes such as “weekend core”.
But new exercises and meditations are kept important.
Apple offers a specially compiled list of training sessions for beginners and pregnant women, even those who do not like sports can get everything from a sofa to a yoga mat.
Individual training units are designed to be very stylish, and stylish “fitness studios” are built for recordings. Trainers know how to motivate you and explain each exercise in detail, especially in the early sections. Many exercises are also great for being “involved” by multiple coaches, which creates a good team feeling.
Different trainers each train different levels of difficulty in training so that everyone really has something.
Training in English
But there is a problem: Unfortunately, Fitness + is only available in English and can only be used with German subtitles. Basically it works well and, as we are accustomed to from Apple’s key tips, trainers speak English that is easy to understand. But it gets harder when you are lying on the mat and the coach explains an exercise to you. It takes time to get to the English game vocabulary; Or do you know what thigh means in English?
Fitness + can be tested for free for a month, after which it costs € 9.99 per month or € 79.99 per year. Additionally, Fitness + is included in the largest package offered by Apple One.
