What do I need to get Fitness + access? In the beginning, a Apple Watch, Through which our training data (heart rate, calorie burn) is monitored and stored in the fitness app in safety and privacy, as well as copied to the screen during training. Then you need at least one iPhone (mandatory to be able to use Apple Watch in any case, even if the latter is in ‘Cellular’ configuration) The ideal is to be able to count on an iPad’s wide screen or TV. In fact, Apple TV, through Apple’s “media player” Fitness + gives its best, because you can train in front of a big screen and better understand what needs to be done.

The big screen is especially important for those who are not very familiar with English: Reached Italy with subtitles without fitness + dubbing, And although the subtitles are normally readable on a smartphone, when you’re climbing an imaginary mountain – for example – in our elliptical … shortness of breath and sweat, it may be that your vision is a bit clouded! Furthermore, it can be difficult to find the right position to look at the iPhone for body weight exercises, while many exercises on the market provide comfortable support for bikes or elliptical phones and tablets.

Workouts are varied, can be filtered by type, by our favorite music type, by personal instructor protagonist and much more. From cycling to treadmills, from strengthening exercises to yoga, from HIIT workouts to pilates to appropriate cool-down sessions., Is absolutely recommended after the most intense sessions. There is also the option to attach compatible machines (for example, treadmills or rowing machines) to add an extra layer to the actual training tracking. No need to add any more purchases. If you already have an exercise bike at home, you can follow the spinning lessons with a little creativity, following the instructions of a personal trainer who will tell you when to increase the resistance of the equipment and when to change the speed. You can even “simulate” with an elliptical trainer at home, for example, a session on a treadmill, acting on resistance when the trainer changes trends: just don’t cheat!

Then there is a full series of sessions that require nothing more than a short yoga mat, some weight and some time to exercise without external distractions. In short, There are some workouts for all needs, And even among the more intense ones a “normal” and a more calm approach has been proposed: for example, following a personal trainer it is possible to deal with a treadmill lesson in all cases (therefore, running) or referring to someone else. The team present on the screen, who do the same exercises in a soft way while walking. And also dedicated to those who love to walk If necessary, the audio track should be copied to Apple Watch Which can go with us during our walk (although here, of course, knowledge of English becomes basic).

Perhaps there is a lack of a more directed and progressive path, especially at the beginning Check out the app to find the right workout to get you started. In this sense, it is a bit confusing that no course in the Italian app starts from the first episode, probably because the first ones were not localized. After deciding to do the first treadmill workout, we wasted a few minutes trying to figure out why personal trainer Emily’s treadmill workouts started in episode 20. However, a few sessions are enough to understand which may be appropriate and which may not And make our own custom training list, also new sessions are planned every week, so there is definitely no risk of getting bored.
