CVS Health has announced that it will offer special access for its clients, customers, and employees to Apple Fitness+, the first fitness experience built for Apple Watch. Apple’s new fitness experience will debut later this year.
CVS Health will offer a one-year subscription for Aetna commercial and CVS Caremark members. The company says it will share details soon. Additionally, a free two-month subscription for Fitness+ will be offered to CVS Pharmacy ExtraCare members and all current CVS Health employees when the service is launched.
Fitness+ intelligently incorporates metrics from Apple Watch for users to visualize right on their iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, offering a first-of-its-kind personalized workout experience. With Fitness+, everyone from beginners to fitness enthusiasts can access studio-style workouts delivered by inspiring world-class trainers underscored by motivating music from renowned artists, making it easier and more rewarding for users to exercise, whenever and wherever they like.
“Keeping people engaged and motivated on their path to better health is at the core of our business, which is why we are extending our collaboration with Apple to offer special access to Fitness+ through all the ways we connect with customers,” said Jonathan Mayhew, Executive Vice President and Chief Transformation Officer for CVS Health. “Innovative fitness offerings like Fitness+ are even more critical as people strive to maintain their health during these challenging times.”
CVS Health company Aetna and Apple have been health partners ever since 2016 when 90% of participants in Aetna’s employee wellness subsidy program reported a health benefit from their use of Apple Watch. In 2019, Aetna launched Attain, a unique health experience designed by Aetna in collaboration with Apple. Attain is a comprehensive integrated wellness program via a direct-to-member app that blends activity-driven incentives and rewards with personalized health recommendations.
Fitness+ requires Apple Watch Series 3 or later paired with iPhone 6s or later or iPhone SE. One offer per Apple ID. Participants will be able to share their Fitness+ subscription with up to five other people in their family with Family Sharing. For more information on Fitness+, visit Apple.com.
