Jamie-Ray Hartshorne (HIIT, Treadmill)

“Having your Apple Watch metrics on the screen in front of you is a game changer. As a trainer, being able to bring attention to a user’s heart rate during a tough interval, have a timer come to life for a final push, or call attention to their Activ- ity rings in the moment provides amazing motivation from start to finish.”

Sherica Holmon (Cycling)
“With Fitness+, everyone is welcome to the party. That includes you. That is what I love about the trainer team — each one of us cares about inclusivity and ensuring everyone feels invited.”

Tyrell Désean (Cycling)
“Our diverse team weaves in all kinds of music to the workouts to inspire and motivate people to work harder and last longer than they ever thought they could. When you hear the beat drop, you can just feel the energy come off the screen. Music, combined with the metrics from Apple Watch that display on- screen, is a really unique way to help get you through the workout!”
