Apple Fitness Plus now lets you work out with up to 32 friends

New group workouts help you exercise with friends from anywhere.

Apple Event Fitness Plus workouts

Love grabbing a workout class with friends? Now you can do that on Apple Fitness Plus, Apple's streaming exercise service. At the fall 2021 iPhone event, Apple announced that group workouts are coming to Fitness Plus.

You can work out with up to 32 friends, so long as they have an Apple Watch and Apple Fitness Plus subscription ($10 per month or $80 per year). Jay Blahnik, Apple's senior director of fitness technologies, explained during the event that group workouts are facilitated by SharePlay, a new iOS 15 feature that allows you to watch the same videos or listen to the same music synced across devices through a FaceTime call.
