Audible is trying to get people into its fitness programs by offering them for free.

Audible/Aaptiv

Audible has launched a trio of free audio fitness programs for its US subscribers, but there's a time limit on the offer.

Subscribers only have until Sept. 5 to try out the programs, which Amazon-owned Audible created with audio fitness app Aaptiv.

The three programs are pitched at beginners, with a focus on running and meditation. All three are among Audible's most popular titles right now.

They'll be followed by more beginner programs -- for quick workouts, indoor cycling and improved sleep -- and intermediate workouts for people who travel regularly or are trying combat gym boredom.

Together, the programs are valued at more than $95, Audible notes. The three currently available normally range between $7 and $20 each.

Each one will include a soundtrack to help you maintain momentum, according to Engadget, which earlier reported the offer.

"Aaptiv is thrilled to offer Audible members a glimpse into the Aaptiv experience," Ethan Agarwal, Aaptiv's CEO, said in a statement.
