Time to Run

Running is a great outdoor activity. Time to Run on Fitness + is designed to motivate you to be a better runner. Starting from a 5-minute run, and working your way up to a 30 minutes run. Before you know it you’ll reach your goal of 5KM in no time.

Time to Run episodes features motivational and energising music, with playlists curated by Fitness+ trainers. The playlists are designed to match each run’s intensity, location, and coaching, capturing the spirit of the city where the run takes place. A new playlist for Miami Beach features Latin music inspired by the vibrant sights and sounds of the city.  During Time to Run, you will also receive photos taken by the Fitness+ trainer of notable sights along their route. Photos will be available in the workout summary afterwards, and you can save them to your photo library.

Time to Run will launch with three new episodes: London, coached by Cory Wharton-Malcolm; Brooklyn, coached by Emily Fayette; and Miami Beach, coached by Sam Sanchez.

Time to Walk

Check out the third season of Time to Walk, an inspiring audio experience on Apple Watch designed to encourage people to get active by walking more often. Time to Walk features some of the world’s most interesting and influential people, who share stories, photos, and music with Fitness+ subscribers. Time to Walk has featured 41 guests to date, including Dolly Parton, Anthony Joshua, Jane Fonda, Randall Park, Camila Cabello, Naomi Campbell, Ruby Bridges, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Bebe Rexha, and many others. Most recently, His Royal Highness Prince William closed out the second season talking about the importance of keeping mentally fit.

As the series begins its third season, new guests will be added each week. Starting January 10, users can walk with actor, writer, and producer Rebel Wilson. In her episode, she recalls an acting lesson that became a great life lesson, and how an unexpected connection provided comfort after she lost a loved one.

Artist Spotlight

Look forward to new workouts featuring the music of Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, Shakira, and the Beatles. The Artist spotlight series dedicates an entire workout playlist to a single artist. “For me, a great playlist can make or break a workout,” said Shakira. “Music has that power to energise you and make it more fun, so I hope these playlists can be inspiring for the Apple Fitness+ users who choose them too!”
