Starting January 1, 2022, Haddish will lead users through four virtual workouts – boxing, cardio, body stretching, and meditation – with backgrounds filmed in Spain, Portugal, Maldives, China, Bolivia and Mongolia.
“I became addicted to Supernatural last year. I have never felt so powerful or enjoyed working out so much. I can travel the world from my living room, move to the music I love and feel myself like a superhero every day, “Haddish said in a statement.” My mission in life is to spread joy and empower people, and as a supernatural guest coach, I can spread this goodness to in a way that also makes people sweat and smile while doing a great workout. “
Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed, but Haddish is the first guest celebrity coach for Supernatural, which was launched in April 2020 by the AR company and VR Within.

Haddish worked with the choreographers, coaches and the content curation team at Supernatural to develop the series and plan the soundtracks for each workout (Supernatural, led by CEO and former music video director Chris Milk, signed a agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group earlier this year to add thousands of hit songs to the app). Supernatural users will be able to see or hear Haddish training with them as they smash virtual targets, crouch to avoid imaginary obstacles, and more, all from their living room.
