CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) announced today it is offering special access for its clients, customers and employees to Apple Fitness+, the first fitness experience built for Apple Watch, arriving later this year. CVS Health is developing a one-year subscription offer for Aetna commercial and CVS Caremark members and will share details soon. Additionally, a free two-month subscription for Fitness+ will be offered to CVS Pharmacy ExtraCare(R) 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."
Today's announcement is a continuation of the relationship between Aetna, a CVS Health company, and Apple that originated in 2016 when 90 percent of participants in their 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 direct-to-member app that blends activity-driven incentives and rewards with personalized health recommendations.
