Kickboxing arrives as a new total-body cardio workout type. It will consist of a round of moves and a final round that combines all of the moves in an all-out one-minute interval.

Sleep joins the other nine meditation themes in Apple Fitness+. It aims to make meditation a useful part of a wind-down routine or while driving off to sleep. New sleep meditations will be added weekly.

Beyonce is the latest artist in the Apple Fitness+ Artist Spotlight series. Seven new workouts will be available across Cycling, Dance, HIIT, Pilates, Strength, Treadmill, and Yoga that feature the singer's music on January 9.

Two additional Artist Spotlights will be released in January. Foo Fighters will be available January 16 and Bad Bunny on January 23.

New fitness trainers are joining the platform as well. New Dally will act as a kickboxing trainer, while Brian Cochrane will join the HIIT team and Jenn Lau will join Strength.

"No matter where people are on their health and well-being journey, Fitness+ makes it easy to get started and stay motivated with workouts and meditations that are welcoming to all," said Jay Blahnik, Apple's vice president of Fitness Technologies. "Whether people want to boost their cardio with the newest workout type, Kickboxing; move to Beyonce's latest hits; or wind down before bed with a meditation, there really is something for everyone to take care of their body and mind in the new year."

    The new kickboxing instructor is Nez Dally, not New Dally. Apple's press release also has some additional info and photos of each of the new trainers.
