An interface that handles requests to start a workout.


@protocol INStartWorkoutIntentHandling


Use the methods of the INStartWorkoutIntentHandling protocol to resolve, confirm, and handle requests to start a workout using your app. Adopt this protocol in an object of your Intents extension capable of validating the workout name or goals.

You don’t actually start a workout from your Intents extension. When your handleStartWorkout:completion: returns, Siri launches your app and passes it an NSUserActivity object that contains the INStartWorkoutIntent object and your response. Your app uses the information in those objects to start the workout.
