What Collections are available?

There are currently six Collections available to choose from, with more likely to be added over time. These include: 

  • 30-Day Core Challenge
  • Improve Your Posture with Pilates
  • Perfect Your Yoga Balance Poses
  • Run Your First 5K
  • Strengthen Your Back, Stretch Your Hips
  • Wind Down for a Better Bedtime

How do Collections work?

Collections are available in the Fitness app under the Fitness+ tab. Each Collection is different and consists of a range of workouts and/or meditations in order to achieve a particular goal. 

For example, the 'Perfect Your Yoga Balance Poses' Collection has a total of eight sessions and offers a progression of standing poses and arm balances. You'll start with 10-minute workouts and progress to longer ones, and you can repeat any of the practices or the entire series to continue improving your balance.

The Wind Down for a Better Bedtime has 14 sessions, while the 30-Day Core Challenge has 30 sessions, so each Collection is different depending on the goal you choose.

How do I get Collections?

To see Collections, make sure you are running the latest software.

You'll then need to open the Fitness app on your iPhone or iPad and tap on the Fitness+ tab at the bottom in the middle. Collections appear in their own section, like New Workouts, New Meditations and Time to Walk.
