Audible adds guided meditation and workouts for beginners

Amazon’s audiobook company Audible is expanding into guided meditations and audio workouts, the company has announced. The new workout content is limited to beginners for now, but Audible has detailed additional workout content it plans to release in the near future. The audio is offered in partnership with Aaptiv.

For its initial launch, Audible is offering “Walk to Run One Mile” and “5K Training” workout programs, as well as a guided meditation 20-day plan for beginners called “Everyday Meditation.” Over the new few weeks, Amazon says it will be adding three more beginner courses and two additional intermediate courses.

The three new beginner programs will include an introduction to indoor cycling, rapid workouts for busy people, and a “Sleep Better” option. The two intermediate programs will include workouts for travelers and “Beat Gym Boredom.”

The content is currently free for Audible members up through September 5, after which point the content will be removed from users’ libraries, according to Audible. The content would ordinarily cost $95. It’s unclear how long Amazon plans to provide Aaptiv content on the Audible platform.
