Apple Fitness+ has added new “goal-setting workouts” to the service as part of a weekly series that is meant to keep subscribers motivated in order to complete their fitness goals.
Additionally, Apple has also created a dedicated Fitness+ section in Apple Music to advertise the songs it features in its fitness workouts. The playlists, called “Studio Series Playlists,” are curated by Apple Music editors and the trainers from Fitness+.
