Six things to know:

3. The retail company also is rolling out Halo Fitness, a service that offers users hundreds of workouts, including cardio, strength, yoga, outdoor and mobility classes. 

4. Amazon's new Halo Nutrition program offers users personalized tools to find new healthy recipes or create weekly eating plans. 

5. Halo Fitness and Halo Nutrition both are offered through Amazon's Halo membership, which is available in the Halo app. 

6. Halo Fitness content will start rolling out to members in the Halo app later this year, and Halo Nutrition will become available in January 2022.
