The other widgets are Programs- which takes the user to workout regimes for Beginners, for Weight Loss, Meditation, HIIT, etc. All the routines have duration and Difficulty level specified on the thumbnail. A 21-day Weightloss Program is also available and new plans will be added monthly, as per user’s requirement. Although, you can access all the plans only if you have taken a plan subscription. The plans are yearly, quarterly and monthly.
However, the other two widgets, namely Yoga and Exercise, have specified category of regimes to look forward to and are open to using.
