Coke vs. Pepsi, McDonalds vs. Burger King and now, Peloton vs. Apple Fitness+! The ultimate battle of the fitness apps. Peloton is the undoubtedly the leader in the at-home spin movement and has a several year head start which was only bolstered by the pandemic. Its instructors are now celebrities with their own clothing lines and a massive social media following. If you have been following my blog, you know that while I cannot afford a Peloton bike (I started with a Sunny and after a couple of years upgraded to a Keiser M3i) I am a HUGE fan of the Peloton App – spin, cardio, HIIT, yoga – the classes are all exceptional.
But now Apple Fitness+ is in town with guns blazing! Apple Fitness+ is Apple’s new fitness app powered by Apple Watch (it doesn’t work without the watch). I thought it would be helpful if I provided a comparison between the two based on my early experiences.
I have some exciting news. I created a dedicated Apple Fitness+ App Community on Facebook! I describe it as a safe place to help answer questions, discuss tips, tricks and share best practices while using the Apple Fitness+ App. Please join! More details below.
Are you ready for Apple Fitness+?!?!? Rumor has it that it is launching this week! You know that I love the Peloton App but I am always excited for new content, instructors, platforms and to try new things. I am sure the folks at Peloton, BeachBody, Les Mills, etc. are a bit nervous about Apple getting into fitness game, although Peloton has such a strong lead. But all the competition will only be a good thing – a rising tide lifts all boats…
Here is everything that you need to know…
I am pumped. Peloton just announced the “Peloton Tread” – which they describe as a ‘private fitness studio in your own home both on and off the treadmill.’ Sounds pretty sweet. I already love the Peloton App and I think it just got even better.
