New workouts with music by Elton John, Katy Perry, Prince, and Daft Punk will be added to Apple Fitness+’s Artist Spotlight series starting this week. The series gives one particular musician their own own exercise playlist. New workouts starring each artist will be added to Fitness+ every Monday for four weeks, spanning a variety of workout categories like cycling, HIIT, strength training, yoga, dance, and treadmill.
Apple Music and Apple One subscribers can take advantage of the Fitness+ Spotlight series, which is inspired by the Artist Spotlight Fitness+ workouts. It includes a special playlist for each individual Artist Spotlight musician that includes inspiring, upbeat songs from their entire catalogues as well as collaborations and remixes to keep people moving outside their Fitness+ workouts.
Like Katy Perry said, “I know it’s good for me, and I need it to stay ready for my Vegas residency, PLAY, but sometimes, the only thing that gets me through a workout is the music. I hope these Artist Spotlight workouts on Fitness+ will motivate people to get moving and have fun while doing it!”
With songs by artists like BTS, Queen, Nicki Minaj, The Beatles, Shakira, Calvin Harris, Keith Urban, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, and Jennifer Lopez among others, the Artist Spotlight series offers more than 50 workouts that span almost every sort of exercise.
So without further ado, let’s get into some of the type of workouts Fitness+ users can do and with which songs:
To correspond with Prince’s penchant for the number seven, Fitness+ trainer Sherica Holmon will lead users through seven working songs throughout the Cycling workout, including “Kiss,” “I want to be your lover,” and “I would die 4 U,” among others.
Users will flow to four ballads from Elton John’s tremendous catalogue during a yoga session conducted by Fitness+ expert Molly Fox. The songs are “Tiny Dancer,” “Your Song,” “Daniel,” and “Blessed.” Users will stand, reach, bend, and twist as each song explores a fresh pose.
Fitness+ trainer Jamie-Ray Hartshorne will guide customers through some of Katy Perry’s biggest hits, including “Teenage Dream,” “California Gurls (feat. Snoop Dogg),” “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F),” and more, in an upcoming treadmill exercise set to her music.
