  • Several devices work with Apple Fitness Plus, but you need an Apple Watch Series 3 or later.

Apple Fitness Plus, Apple’s subscription exercise program, integrates pre-recorded workouts in a wide range of categories with your Apple Watch and iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. Apple Fitness Plus costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, and there is an option for a free trial when you sign up.

The app allows you to choose workouts like high-intensity interval training (HIIT), yoga, strength, treadmill, cycling, rowing, and more. Here’s how to make sure you have everything you need to get started with Apple Fitness Plus.

Devices that work with Apple Fitness Plus

You need an Apple Watch Series 3 or later, plus an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV to follow Fitness Plus exercises. Any of these devices must be running OS version 14.3 or higher.

Exercise equipment you might need

Apple Fitness Plus offers a lot of workout options, many of which don’t require any equipment other than your body. Some workouts have unique equipment requirements, though.

The good news is that you can use any generic equipment to do the workout — Fitness Plus doesn’t require you to have a particular brand or model of workout equipment. You can also do these workouts at home or at a gym.

Each workout indicates what equipment you need at the top of the screen, under the introductory image. If there’s no equipment listed, you won’t need any gear (except, of course, for the obvious treadmill if you’ve chosen a treadmill workout, for example).

You can see what equipment you need at the top of each workout page.

However, if you want to explore a wide range of Fitness Plus exercises, you may want access to at least some of this equipment.
