Beachbody is known for creating top of the line fitness programs. You ordered the program, waited for it to come, and then, once you had it, you had access to a program created by a world class trainer that you would do right in the comfort of your own home. Pretty awesome, right? It was if you had $120 and knew you would like the program that you ordered.
Beachbody on Demand changes everything. Thanks to their newest program, you can now access over 10 different, complete workout programs for $2.99 per week. Is it worth it though? I took a tour through the program, and here is what I discovered. These are not cheap workouts that you are accessing. You gain full access to P90X, P90X2, P90X3, Insanity, Insanity The Asylum, TurboFire, 10 Minute Trainer and more of their top selling programs. So, financially, here is how am looking at it. You can spend $120 + tax and shipping for 1 program, which comes to about $150, or you can spend about the same for access to over 10 programs. Financially, I think that Beachbody on Demand makes a lot of sense.
One of my favorite programs in Insanity The Asylum. If you have ever done this program, you know that you need a lot of space to do it. That has always been tough for me, since my home gym (my office), isn’t very big. I am super excited that now, thanks to Beachbody on Demand, I can simply take my phone to a nearby track, or even just outside, and I can do they do the workout along with the video, having all of the room that I need.
Unfortunately, there are some restrictions to this program. While there are over 10 complete programs, they are not all on there. The program that I am doing right now, Body Beast, is not on there. I personally bring the workout sheets from the program and do it at the gym, but it is not the same as being able to workout along with the video.
A big pro of this program is that they have all 3 P90X programs. You could go from P90X to P90X2 to P90X3, which would cost you over $400 to order the DVDs, and do them right through your phone. That gives you huge savings. The long term goal if for Beachbody on Demand to continue to grow, with them adding more programs as time goes on. They will also be offering special memberships to access particular programs (the newest ones) for a small extra fee.
Insanity Workout: Insanity is a sixty-day cardio based total body workout designed and ran by a personal trainer named Shaun T. Shaun T is an all-star cross-country and track runner and really focuses on max interval and strength training throughout his sixty-day program. He has developed many different skills throughout his career and has built the intelligence with sports medicine to help others reach their desired results. Shaun T believes that high-intensity activities help burn fat and build muscle more so than any other form of exercise.
These workouts include everything from cardio core balance, to yoga and stretching. Real people have reached great results doing this program and have great stories to tell if you are interested in looking them up on the Internet. I personally am doing the Insanity workout and find it the best form of exercise I have gotten yet! Shaun T works hard to ensure you push yourself as far as possible. He is very inspiring and motivating throughout each workout and very focused on helping you reach your best possible results. Insanity also offers a great flexible diet program to follow to help you reach your weight loss goals. If you are looking for a fast paced, intense workout Insanity is a great fit for you!
P90X Workout: Trainer Tony Horton uses this ninety-day program as a way to build muscle and burn fat by using muscle confusion throughout the various workouts. Each day has a set workout to be followed consisting of exercises for either your arms, back, legs, or abdominal muscles. This is a high-intensity workout and requires top physical condition and health. P90X workout is a longer program because it consists of three weeks working extremely hard every day, then one week of recovery workouts to help the body relax and confuse the muscles of their work.
It also includes a great diet program as well as recovery formula to help your body recover after the intense workout. Whereas the Insanity workout is a very face paced cardio workout, P90X focuses on balancing movements and weight lifting to build muscle rather than endurance. If you were looking for a slower paced workout that includes weight lifting and strengthening, P90X would be a great workout for you!
