The best part is that you don’t need to buy separate hardware and gym equipment.

The new Fitness Plus program also offers programs based on your experience. If you are new, you can choose the “Beginners program.” Furthermore, fitness videos can be accessed anytime on Apple’s new Fitness app. When you are working out the stats like heart rate will be displayed on-screen. Once the workout is over you will get a summary will all your data.
