One of the most common questions that I get regarding BeachBody On Demand is, Does Beachbody On Demand Work?  The simple answer is yes, of course it does…IF you pick a program and follow the diet and workouts consistantly.  I personally have been happy with the results following a couple of programs that are offered on Beachbody On Demand.

What is Beachbody On Demand

You probably already know what Beachbody On Demand is, but just in case you don’t.  Beachbody On Demand is a online streaming service which contains over 1,100 workouts plus Fintess PLUS Nutrution Plans.

Workout Program that produced results – 21 Day Fix21 day fit Autumn Calabrese

Currently, as I am writing this article, their are 3 different variations of 21 Day Fix with Autumn Calabrese.  I have tried the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Real Time and they are very similar.  Autumn Calabrese is a great trainer and somehow she is able to make the workouts enjoyable.

21 Day Fix has its own nutrution plan in which you can purchase her colored plastic containers to assist in portion control, and I am sure its great, but I did not want to purchase any add on products and plus I already was following another diet so I didn’t follow her diet program so I an’t speak to that personally.  Here is an example of the workouts schedule for week 1 :   Day 1 is Cardio, Day 2 Lower Body, Day 3 Upper Body and Abs, Day 4 Poates, Day 5 Cardo again and abs, Day 6 Dirty 30 (full body) and Day 7 Yoga.

Although I didn’t follow her specific diet, I did complete 21 days of her program and still was able to lose 7 lbs. in 3 weeks!  So Does Beachbody On Demand work?  Yep.

PROS : Workouts are only 30 min, Enjoyable workouts, gets results fast, has a nutrution program

CONS : No Rest Day – 7 days a week!  For this reason, I usually use this as kind of a bootcamp and then after 3 weeks I choose a program which only requires 3-4 days of workout.

3 week yoga retreat beachbody on demandOther programs I’ve tried

I have also tried the 3 Week Yoga Retreat which I absolutetly loved.  I have bought many, probably over 10  yoga videos over the years and I’ve always wanted to try it, but every video I’ve ever tried was too hard, too long or too boring.  This program made yoga fun and easy.  They even have a 20 minutes Yoga Flow which gives you a great feeling in such a short time.  I really like LIIFT 4 which combines strength training and HIIT workouts and it is only 4 workouts a week which I prefer than everyday.  Of course I tried P90X, but that was a little too extreme for me and was everyday for 90 days which was just too much for me.

Other Beachbody On Demand programs that I will try in the future

  • T25
  • Core De Force
  • Piyo
  • 80 Day Obsession
  • Clean Week
  • Hip Hop Abs
  • 10 Rounds (Coming Soon)

LIIFT4Will Beachbody On Demand Work for You?

If you are the type of person who is dedicated and able to workout from your home, then 100% Beachbody On Demand is right for you and you will see results.  Just like anything else, you get what you put in.  But in my Honest Opinion, the reason I LOVE this program is because of what great workout programs you get for such a reasonable price compared to the gym alternative.  I used to pay $150/month for my wife and I to be a part of 24 hour Fitness and that included a $150 startup fee.  Physical gyms have expensive equipment which they must purchase and maintain as well as a commercial lease to pay so they have to charge more.  So for only $99/year which comes out to $8.25/month if you break it down, I am able to have unlimited access to Amazing Workout Videos at my convienence. So for me, it was really a no brainer to give it a try, heck I spend more on lottery tickets or coffee per month!

Hey, it’s great to see this “on demand” program available from the beachbody team. I’ve dabbled in the workouts over the years but haven’t quite completed one yet. However, even though I haven’t completed my own series yet, I was inspired to start them by my friends who had done the programs. They had incredible results! Back when I was testing these waters, a couple of the older programs were on DVDs, which were a lot to keep up with. I really like the convenience of the on-demand program (and the free trial too!).

    Tell me about it, I have tons of old DVD’s that are just collecting dust now.  You really should try out the 14 day Free Trial…I think you’ll be amazed at the quality and quantity of workout programs.

Hello Mike, Thank you for your review on the Beachbody On Demand programme! This is definitely a great topic, as home workout is on a rise now that the most of the countries is going through lockdown or Movement Control Order. I have also been working out more often now that I’m home most of the time, and I will definitely look into the free trial for this programme. I 100% agree with you that our determination is always the main key whether if this programme will work. I have also used phone apps before and followed through the workout routines, but I am interested in how the Beachbody programme offers so much workout routines! You also have a very detailed review, and its short and simple. Very easy to read through and understand! Once again, thank you for your review, and keep it up!

I need to get more fit before the summer starts so Beach Body On Demand sounds something I could use very well. However, I’m not sure if I understand it right. Is it that you pay $99 yearly and then you can use any of the programs, like the one you named, 3 week yoga retreat? I am into yoga but I need some guidance as I don’t remember all the yoga positions and the sequence, and I’m also not able to exercise on my own without a “coach” so this would be a great thing for me.

    Mike · March 31, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Lenka, yes, $99 for 1 year of access to ALL of the workout videos.  It includes over 1,100 workouts.  Trust me, 3 Week Yoga Retreat is the best yoga routine I have ever tried and I bet you’ll enjoy it as well.  You can always try the 14 day trial to see if its worth it for you!
