Apple Fitness+

Apple Fitness + is finally available in France, how to take advantage of it?

With several years behind the American market, Apple has just rolled out its Fitness + sports application to 15 new countries, including France.

It took 6 years for Apple to finally decide to deploy its Fitness + application in France, which made its debut in 15 new countries on Wednesday, November 3. Available on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, the service available from the Shape application allows you to follow fitness classes supervised by professional coaches. The idea, particularly popular since the successive confinements, being to be able to play sports at home, in the best possible conditions.

How to use Fitness +?

First step to taking advantage of Fitness +, owning an Apple smartwatch, at least an Apple Watch Series 3, which provides access to all the necessary health functions. Then all you have to do is link the connected watch to an Apple account to access Fitness +, the wearable needing to be nearby to start the sports service.

Daily, Apple Fitness + offers a variety of cardio workouts. Some require special equipment, such as treadmills or rowing machines, others can be done without any equipment. Depending on the program chosen, the user then has access to a personalized program, and new workouts are offered to him every week.

Thanks to the coupling with the Apple Watch, the Fitness + service thus benefits from a slew of measures intended to enrich sports practice, from heart rate to the number of calories consumed. Note that for the moment, the French translation is only accessible by means of subtitles. The Cupertino company has however promised the arrival of new audio languages in the future.

How much does it cost ?

Obviously, access to the Fitness + service is not free. Count € 9.99 per month or € 79.99 per year to enjoy. The subscription is, however, included in the Apple One subscription, which already includes access to Apple Music, Apple TV +, and Apple Arcade. The purchase of an Apple Watch also entitles you to three months of free trial.
