Apple Fitness+ was launched in September 2020, so it makes sense that some of the trainers on the exercise-centric streaming service would be moving on to greener pastures. Two of the service’s most popular trainers – Betina Gozo and Dustin Brown – have separately revealed their departures
The athletic duo both made their announcements on Instagram within an hour of each other. In both cases, the trainers say that the reason is they are moving out of the Los Angeles area, which is where the Apple Fitness+ studio is located.
Gozo was perhaps best known for the “Stay Active During Pregnancy” series released in April 2021. A year later, she led a sequel series, “Get Back to Fitness After Having a Baby.”
“I’m sad to share that my time on the Fitness+ trainer team is coming to an end,” Gozo wrote on Instagram. “I’m so grateful to have been part of this incredible team in LA, where thought I would always live…but now my family and l are off to a new adventure in a new state…”
“Rest assured, my workouts and the programs I was part of will still be in the Fitness+ library,” she continued, “so you can still work out with me whenever and wherever you want.”
Yoga teacher Dustin Brown is moving back to his native Australia.
“I am moving back to Australia full time!” he wrote on Instagram. “After being in the U.S. for over two years, I had the opportunity to travel back to Australia and spend time in my studios and in the community here.”
“It has been a tough decision but I am following and listening to my heart, and I have decided to move back to Melbourne!” he continued. “This means my time at @applefitnessplus is coming to an end. I already miss my TEAM so very much!”
Both Brown and Gozo concluded by urging people to stay active and “close your rings.”
