The fitness platform, available on Apple products such as iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV, has added Kickboxing to the eleven workout types it already includes. It will consist of a round of moves followed by a final round in which all of the moves will be combined in an all-out one-minute interval.
It has also added more music to its Artist Spotlight. Notably, recording artist and songwriter, Beyonce, has been added to the Artist Spotlight session. Though this section already features artists such as Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones, this new addition is sure to bring many eyes to the platform. Later this year, Foo Fighters and Bad Bunny are also expected to be added to the mix. Jay Blahnik, Apple’s vice president of Fitness Technologies said the following about the new additions:

The Time to Walk feature has also gotten been expanded with availability in new places this year such as Barcelona, Memphis, TN, and Los Angeles.
All of these new features are available on the platform right away. Apple Fitness+ is a paid subscription service that costs $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year, however, those subscribed to the Premium tier of Apple One will have their Apple Fitness+ subscription included.
