something I liked this week Volume 31

Apple Fitness+

This week apple released Apple Fitness Plus. Was it this week? I think it was. Right? This is something I was very excited about when it first announced. Well, it is finally here and of course I could not wait to check it out.

Since the pandemic, I haven’t not been as active as before, not visiting my local gym — for obvious reasons — and I have been struggling trying on getting back on track. Reason why I was excited for Fitness+. I can do it at home where it’s safe, using my Apple TV or any other of my Apple devices.

The first workout sesh I tried was a HIT workout and it kicked my Puerto Rican buttness 😅. It made me realize how out of shape I am, and was a lot of fun. Only 20 minutes, I know there are longer and even shorter sessions but 20 minutes seem reasonable. Loved the fact that you don’t need to fiddle with the Apple Watch trying to find and match the workout you’re about to do. I like how it shows your progress in real-time right on the screen. The workouts — so far — are not super complicated and they are easy to follow. I like how you can finish your workout sesh and go straight to mindfulness Cooldown or like in my case, I mix and match workouts.

This morning for example I did a 20 min HIT workout, then 10 minutes of core and from that 10 minutes of Mindfulness Cooldown and that was my morning workout.

I am looking forward to explore more workout and getting back into my fitness lifestyle. Of course I will be incorporating other things like kettlebell exercises and run/walks. But for when it’s cold and I don’t feel like going outside, Apple Fitness Plus is zee bees knees.
