Fitness+ is also expanding its team of world-class trainers. Apple is introducing a new Yoga and Mindful Cooldown trainer, Jonelle Lewis.
Current Fitness+ trainer Anja Garcia is also joining the HIIT team.
Apple is also launching a Time to Walk series episode with Jane Fonda — iconic actor, producer, author, and activist, in honor of Earth Day.
According to Apple, the new workouts provided for pregnancy are designed to help women stay active during a healthy pregnancy and prepare for life with a new baby.
These workouts, totally ten in number, span across Strength, Core, and Mindful cooldown.
Care has been taken to design these new workouts to accommodate any stage of pregnancy and any fitness level and includes tips for modifying workouts using a pillow for comfort as the body changes.
Workouts for Older Adults help users stay active at any age, focusing on strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and mobility.
The new series includes eight workouts. Many workouts are done with a light dumbbell or just bodyweight, and others show modifications with a chair or against the wall. These workouts are all 10 minutes long.
“Apple Fitness+ is integrated with Apple Watch to build on the goal of helping people live a better day by being more active. With more options for getting started and staying active and healthy during pregnancy as well as at any age or fitness level, we hope even more people will be inspired to keep moving with our amazing team of passionate trainers,” said Jay Blahnik, Apple’s senior director of Fitness Technologies.
“We are also incredibly excited to welcome Jonelle Lewis to the trainer team and can’t wait for our users to try new HIIT workouts with Anja Garcia. We’ve brought together an incredibly diverse and inclusive team of Fitness+ trainers, and we love seeing our team grow, giving our users even more options to find the best workout for them.”
