Apple is promoting Fitness+ in Apple Music, by adding a collection of playlists created for the workout subscription to the music-streaming app created by the trainers.

Part of the Apple Fitness+ service is its close integration with Apple Music, with the former using music that can be listened to on the latter. To show off this integration, Apple has added the ability to easily find Fitness+ playlists within Apple Music.

A new Browse category has been added to Apple Music's search page titled Fitness, which contains a large number of fitness-related playlists. As well as including existing playlists that could be used for working out, the category also includes a section titled "Apple Fitness+ Studio Series."

This section contains a selection of playlists, with each representing a different style of music or intended for a type of exercise. Regularly updated and curated by Apple Music editors and the Fitness+ trainers, the playlists range from a dance and electronic music-based list for rowing to country music for running, to a chill-out playlist for yoga.

Launched in December, Fitness+ is Apple's subscription service providing workouts, one which relies on data from a user's Apple Watch to monitor their progress. As well as providing on-demand workout sessions, the service also creates playlists for each individual workout, which can be listened to within Apple Music.

Apple Fitness+ costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, and can be used as part of the Apple One subscription. Existing Apple Watch users can take advantage of a one-month free trial, with three months offered for customers buying an Apple Watch Series 3 or later.
