Beachbody On Demand Review

Beachbody has been doing fitness a long time now and they have many celebrity trainers. There fitness video collection is huge and covers everything from strength training to dance aerobics. You will not get bored with the selection you get and with the low price, it is many times cheaper than a  regular gym membership and on par with other competing online fitness services.

With streaming videos their are some negative points. First off streaming from your phone or tablet doesn't offer a big screen. Hopefully you can mirror the image on your TV or use a smart TV with a web browser to access Beachbody where you normally do workouts. You also don't actually own the content but just rent it (this doesn't apply to premium content that you do purchase). This means when you stop your subscription you don't have access to the videos anymore unlike with DVDs which you own.

Pros
Great energetic fitness videos. Large selection
Cons
Not much nutrition info for some programs. No phone apps

Beachbody is a great app!

Beachbody on demand is much better than dealing with DVDs. I just use my Amazon Fire Stick and log into the app and I have plenty of choice of different fitness programs. This app has allowed me and my wife to try out Pliyo, T25 and Insanity Max 30 without making a huge investment and buying all the DVDs. Also with both of us using Beachbody it works out to just over 5 bucks a person. This is much cheaper than a gym membership.

Pros
No technical issues and I use it daily on Fire TV
Cons
Need the internet to use. Not so good at our cottage.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Beachbody video review

Works greak on my Roku I have hooked up to my TV. I have had zero problems with the app and streaming the high definition videos.

This year I have promised myself to get healthy and loose weight. So I joined Weight Watchers a few months ago to help my diet and for some physical activity I decided on Beachbody On Demand. The reason I choose BOD was because it offered a wide selection of different videos from a number of different trainers. I have some of Beachbodies DVDs and they were helpful at the time though I grew bored watching the same video over and over again. This shouldn't be a problem now with the selection Beachbody offers online. The price is also really good and better than other comparable services like Daily Burn which I have seen a lot of commercials for lately.


Pros
No more DVDs. Selection of videos. Trainers that are motivating. Less than $10 a month. I can take it to the cottage.
Cons
30 day trial requires credit card.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Beachbody reviews

I have been slowly switching from using DVDs to streaming services. I have about 10 DVDs in my collection from Beachbody. Some of them are a little old now but obviously still give results. The problem is I am bored of them now and I can do most of the exercise routines by heart.

When I heard of the Beachbody on demand service I was pretty excited. For the last 3 months I have had almost the whole Beachbody library at my finger tips. It's great as I always have new content to try for what ever the newest fitness craze is. 

I haven't had any problems with the video streaming and the website is easy to use.

Pros
High quailty video streaming
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
