Whether you want Madonna-themed workouts or an uplifting meditation session, Apple is celebrating Pride month with a new Fitness+ series.

In celebration of Pride month, Apple Fitness+ is introducing a new workout and meditation series to shed light on the LGBTQ+ community. Featuring a new artist spotlight with longtime social activist Madonna, the seven exercise videos are inspired by the legendary performer’s impact on self-acceptance and inclusivity across music, fashion and culture.  


In the cycling workout, Fitness+ trainer Tyrell Désean wears a white lace wedding dress in an ode to the artist’s legendary MTV Video Music Awards show, where she performed “Like a Virgin”. Similarly, rowing trainer Anja Garcia celebrates the artist’s endless reinvention history by honouring her iconic “Material Girl” music video look. 

Starting Monday, June 5, the series will also include extensive meditations that will spotlight artists from the LGBTQ+ community. The workouts will also feature special Pride lighting, inspired by the rainbow flag, and Apple Watch users can enjoy a new rainbow edition sport band with a matching watch face and iOS wallpaper.  


Over four decades, Madonna has become the most successful female recording artist ever, and the first artist to score 50 number-one hits on the Billboard charts. She recently teased a new collaboration with fellow LGBTQ+ ally Sam Smith.
