Apple Fitness+ began as an alternative to Peloton, and has grown into a comprehensive workout service, featuring outdoor walking and running workouts as well as yoga, core workouts, cardio training classes such as indoor cycling or rowing classes, meditation and mindfulness sessions. Apple Fitness+’s Collections section organizes series with specific themes such as Level Up Your Core Training or Start Your Day Off Right With Energy and Gratitude.
