This week marks the launch of something that is absolutely going to revolutionize the home workout world. Up until now, if you wanted to work with me in one of my coaching programs, you had to purchase a program on DVD... I didn't have any other options available. And people were always asking about a streaming option that didn't require a DVD player... but I had nothing. Well, that all changed this week with the launch of the Beachbody On Demand streaming workout service.
10 of our most popular workout programs are available, in their entirety, whenever you want them. ** UPDATE as of May 1, 2015: a total of 28 programs are now available!** This is well over 300 single-session workouts, each one ranging in length from 25 minutes to an hour or more. You could do a different workout every day for a year and never have to repeat! So it's not like you'll be doing the same stale routines over and over. The programs that are available run the gamut, from kickboxing to strength to cardio. If you're wanting the full list of programs, here it is:
Eleven more programs are available as part of this service for people who have purchased the DVDs from Beachbody anytime in the past. These are:
You can see snippets of several of these programs on my YouTube channel. Check them out and see which ones look fun to you! The company plans to add more programs as time goes on, but has said that a few will remain available on DVD only—but even for these programs, you can sample a single session as part of Beachbody on Demand, so this gives you a way to try before you buy! (Again, Beachbody has a money-back guarantee... the company has always wanted to make sure its customers were satisfied... this just makes it hassle-free.)
All of this is available to you for a price of $2.99 per week (which will be billed as $38.87 every 3 months). And starting March 25 you get a 30-day free trial, so no money is due up front! You can sign up here, or you can get your first 90 days of club membership for $10 when you purchase Shakeology. Of course this is the best deal because it also comes with group support and accountability in my next 30-day fitness challenge! I recommend this option because it will get you into the habit of logging on daily and pressing play.
As far as the technical specifications, here's what I know: Beachbody On Demand will work on your desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone... basically any device on which you can use a Web browser. If you've installed an Internet browser on your Xbox or Wii, that will work as well. You can use it with a device that wirelessly streams what's appearing on your screen (so you could use an Apple TV to stream the workouts from your computer to your TV). You do need to have an active wifi or 4G connection to play the workouts (no downloading them to play later).
So... who's ready to get started? If you are ready or have questions, please email me at the address in the footer of my site. Please don't do it as a comment on this page. I don't get notified when someone comments, so I might not see it... and if you're ready to start today, I want to make sure I help you out promptly!
