Apple is going up against Calm and Headspace with updates to Fitness+

Apple Fitness+ just got a facelift.

The company announced big changes to the app during its highly anticipated event on Tuesday. Fitness+ will now be available in 15 new countries and in six more languages, and you’ll be able to take a few completely new classes.

According to Apple’s announcement, among the new changes to the app are guided meditations that focus on things like kindness or gratitude. The meditations are intended to be immersive, with both a video and audio experience; you’ll be able to meditate alongside your favorite trainer. We haven’t tried it out yet, but it sounds a lot like Calm or Headspace.

Apple’s also bringing pilates to the app, adding new workouts each week that can be adapted for newbies and pros alike. And you’ll soon find a new workout program to get you ready for winter sports.

If you’re competitive with your friends and enemies, you might be excited about the new group fitness classes powered by SharePlay. You’ll be able to see when your friends are working out and work out along with them on your iPhone, iPad, and AirPlay — you can work out with at least 30 people at once.

Most of these new features will come to Fitness+ later this month, and group fitness will be here later this fall.
