Beachbody On Demand Review – Everything you need to know

This Beachbody on Demand review, as you would expect from Lifestyle Updated, brings about the most detailed description of the program available. As the internet has already revolutionized fitness years ago, it was a due time for Beachbody to finally join the party. And having reviewed nearly most of their popular workouts so far, it is expected that we say our word for the Netflix of fitness as well.


Beachbody fans, those who already bought some of the workouts, but also those who encounter this brand for the first time… Read ahead, I’d like to think that all of your questions will be answered. Contrary to some, this Beachbody on Demand review aims to cover both the good and the ugly. And there is much to cover.

Keeping this introduction short, I will start right away.

What to expect from this review?

First of all, who am I to review Beachbody On Demand, and what gives me enough credibility? Beachbody has been around for more than a decade, and the workout programs spiked attention so much so that hundreds of thousands of people search for them online each month.

Many of those have no idea what to expect, aside from marketing innuendos stretching far and wide. Some even end up buying the workouts, not fully aware of what lays in front of them.

Is this workout compatible for me, is a question better asked before you make a purchase.

So far, being a fitness aficionado for most of my adult life, coaching for a while, and having written some of the most visited reviews on the net, I watched this site receive feedback in the count of thousands. Positive, negative, questions so many that I cannot even catch up answering… Long story short, I know what to look for when reviewing fitness products.

This review goes over all the nuances of the program and why it is probably the best option on the market. But there is another side to it that is somewhat flawed.

In short, the platform is filled with marketing innuendos to get you inside the Beachbody Club Membership, some malfunctions of the log-in option, and the customer service is not up to the task. But let’s continue with this Beachbody on Demand review and see what it is and whether it’s worth it.

What is Beachbody on Demand?

It is a huge library of online workout programs available for streaming – most of the Beachbody programs that have been released so far, and new releases and updates every once in a while. The access is unlimited, meaning you can watch any number of workouts per day, on any device, irrespective of location or time.

You can, simply by choice, use your laptop, tablet, and smartphone to play each of these videos, thus granting yourself true mobility when it comes to fitness.

Included inside are personalized meal plans, calendars to track your progress and all the info from each Beachbody workout that you’d get otherwise. As long as you are participating, these tools are all yours along with the vast library of workouts and customized plans- as long as you are participating, you have a great incentive to work on achieving your shape.

The list goes on to include a 10% discount on all future purchases from Beachbody, and gives you the opportunity to attend live chats with each of the trainers.

Here is what Tony Horton had to say about it:

It’s fucking great. It’s about time.

But let us dive deeper into the workouts, the user interface, and every detail of it.

Why Beachbody on Demand?


Supposing that you are anxious to read the pros and cons of this program let me start right away. Here are the sweet bits first.

Variety in programs

While some target losing weight, others aim for more muscle definition or bulk. And since this Beachbody on Demand review won’t describe each workout program separately, allow me to reassure you that most of them are far better than you’d hope for.

The question that was ricocheting around though, was not whether these workouts are great or not, but were they great for a specific goal (say losing weight, building muscle, getting more definition). It’s hard to make a mistake when you have all of them to compare and decide what to go with.

Besides, taste changes over time, and you might want to build more muscle where you previously wanted to lose more weight or vice versa. As compared to DVD programs, Beachbody on Demand makes it far easier.

Change pace, diversify, build custom programs and never get bored

Truth be told, I tried a handful of workouts from Beachbody, and all of them gave me results I haven’t quite hoped for at the time. However, after a while, boredom most definitely kicks in. You either have to pause for a while only to come back to the same routine, or change to another program which translates into another purchase. And since Beachbody programs last for about two or three months (some of them one), you will be spending five times the money, while still remaining tied to your DVD, TV or laptop.

You can customize your schedules, and create hybrid workout programs so you never get bored. The net is full with customization templates, and there are two of ours that I’m sharing for free bellow.

One month trial period for free!

Meaning you don’t have to pay a dime for the first 30 days, and there is no obligation whatsoever – you can stop the trial period and that’s that.

Mobile is the new black – and you will be going mobile with this one. Working out in the park, in your backyard (a huge advantage in summer if you don’t have the ventilated space), or even making your garage workouts far easier to set-up. Besides, working out with friends was never made easier, due to the fact that you can now workout outside.

Live chats

Frankly, I always thought that one thing was always missing from each Beachbody workout. Motivation. Most people giving feedback on my previous reviews sometimes struggled to keep the pace going. This dramatically changes with live chats. Try listening to Tony Horton, or Shaun T, or Chalene Johnson answering to questions, and then tell me about not being motivated enough. These guys know their craft.

Other sweet bits

  • 10% discount on all things Beachbody.
  • Most of the deluxe packages are included – meaning, you will get access to the latest versions of each workout program.
  • T-shirts can still be earned
  • Videos in HD, instant streaming
  • This is kind of an online gym with a bunch of personal trainers that you can take anywhere you want. The level of accountability is the same – as long as you are paying, you are more likely to participate. This gives you a better incentive to work out, and utilize all of the tools available at your disposal- which makes it more likely to stay in shape, and improve your performance, muscle mass, and burn fat tissue.

Why not Beachbody on Demand?


I always like to say that flowery prose doesn’t have any place on Lifestyle Updated. When I sit down to write fitness reviews, I like to include all the negative aspects of a workout program, as well as try and predict the features or lack of them thereof where you might face frustration.

This Beachbody On Demand review is hardly an exception. And there are some things that bother me.

  • First, it is frustrating to rely on online streaming, only to find out that the hotel where you are staying doesn’t have a stable and fast internet connection. At this point you are cursing yourself for not bringing the DVDs along. You can turn on the online mobile data on your device, and connect right away but that is not the point sometimes… which brings us to the next issue.
  • Mobile data being drained fast. Often times, we all forget to turn off our mobile data, and the workout might start streaming from there instead of a Wi-Fi connection. Needless to say, it will drain your data fast in the following days, especially if you’d like to enjoy HD quality videos. However, this means that you will have an option to stream the workouts even in places where there is no internet connection.
  • You are renting the workouts. The moment when you stop paying, you cannot stream them no more. With the DVDs you own the workouts for life.

However there is another side to this – you have access to all the workouts, and no shipping costs are included. You can sign up and start right away – while enthusiasm is high- instead of waiting for the workouts to arrive at your door. The free trial is still there btw.

FAQs about Beachbody on Demand

Many are floating around the net, so I thought why not answer them here as well. Read ahead, this will reveal much more info about Beachbody on Demand. An extension of the Beachbody on Demand review, if you so prefer.

Are there any subtitles for the workouts?

Yes, all of them.

This was a major concern a while back, and a couple of readers have pointed it to me specifically. Having subtitles means that those who are hearing impaired can easily follow up with any of the workouts. This is a huge advancement in fitness, since nobody else is doing it by the time of writing this review.

Are any On Demand workouts available in Spanish?

The following programs are available with a Spanish Audio option, with Spanish Subtitles also coming soon:

Masters Hammer and Chisel, Country Heat, Core De Force, 21 Day Fix Extreme, 21 Day Fix, Cize, Cize Mashups, Body Beast, Insanity, P90X, P90X2 , Brazilian Butt Lift, RAB, Turbo Fire, Ten Minute Trainer, and Slim in 6.

To play a compatible video in Spanish, begin playing your desired workout/video. Within the player, select the audio/caption icon in the lower right hand corner. All of the available audio options for the workout will be listed.

Note – Subtitle options are not compatible with Microsoft Edge Browser.

Is Beachbody On Demand available in Canada or the UK?

Yes. The US Beachbody On Demand site is available in Canada and the UK.

What are the system requirements?

This is a question that I’m surprised only a few people are asking. When I was signing up, that’s the first thing that came to mind. In order to save you some additional trouble searching for this info around the net, here are the details.

Optimal System Requirements

The following system requirements are recommended for optimal streaming playback. If one or more of the requirements are not met, videos may still play, but possibly with poor quality or playback issues, such as slow buffering or low resolution.

You can also connect your Roku player, Amazon Fire TV or Google Chromecast.

Here’s how to get started with Beachbody On Demand with Roku:

  1. 1. Start by searching for Beachbody On Demand in the Roku Channel Store. Add the channel and press OK on the Roku remote to install the channel.
  2. 2. You’ll next see a screen pop up with a URL and an activation code. Enter the URL into the Internet browser on your computer, tablet, or phone and login to your Beachbody On Demand account. You will then be prompted to enter the activation code. Do so and press the Submit button. The page will then alert you that the device has been successfully activated.
  3. 3. Once activation is successful, the Beachbody On Demand channel will automatically launch on your Roku player or Roku TV model.
  4. 4. To choose a workout, select the workout program you wish to do by using the “OK” button. Then, choose which specific workout you want to view.

Beachbody On Demand is supported on current generation Roku players, Roku Streaming Stick, and Roku TV models.

Can I start with one workout and then play another from another program before the first is completed?

You can. Play one workout from Insanity, and then another from P90X or Turbo Fire, or Hip Hop Abs…

Is there some sort of a daily challenge competition going on?

There is – the Challenge Du Jour. A special set of workouts that changes daily. Lots and lots of exercises to go through.

Some additional tips


You can, for example:

  • Start with one workout depending on your fitness level, and then continue with another that supplements it. And there is much to say about which one to choose as your first, and which one as your second.
  • Most people I know of, that bought Beachbody workouts, almost always made a second purchase.

Migrating from one workout program to another is now far easier – thing is, you can learn more about which one to start with. Here is some guidance, courtesy of Lifestyle Updated.

  • While you can mix exercises and create customized schedules, my advice is to complete one full set before going to the next. Trust me, this pays off – for you will boost your discipline, while allowing the program to work (like for example not interrupting the process in the middle – changing a program right before results start to show). It also translates in staying more accountable. Then, you can start another workout program.
  • If you go down the road of mixing workout programs, like for example Insanity and P90X, my advice is to pay attention to two different approaches before choosing which.
  • – Mixing similar workouts videos (for example both of them being cardio centered, or both of them being strength centered)
  • – Or mixing complementing workout videos (cardio centered videos from Focus T25, and Yoga ones from the P90X series…)

I personally would go with the first option, till I move closer to my goal, and then change to the second and diversify in order to amplify the results.

As for custom schedules, here are two of them. Being space restricted, I will hold onto publishing more.

Closing note of this Beachbody on Demand review

    Has anyone had good success yet?

    • erik

      I have had it for over a month and love it. I purchased a Roku device and use the BB streaming app that is on it. 100% worth the subscription cost because now my GF and myself can tryout different workouts that they put on it before deciding to buy the entire program. I’m not entirely sure what everyone elses problems were but I have been using the on demand service since January and love it

      • erik

        I forgot to mention that the article is a bit outdated. They do have an On-Demand App for Roku streaming devices that works great with your account. I have my hooked up to my TV in the workout area and just turn on the TV and start working out.

      • Marisa

        Hiya hun are you still using it and did there charge you the 38 pound ? Then 2.99 a week .I am in two minds getting it .I got hip hop abs dvd and it really good .but seen the beechbody on demand sound fantastic. I don’t want to get rip off

  2. Bere

    I signed up today and mine work jst fine. I was a little confused at 1st bc I didn’t have a password but looked thru my email and found the one with instructions. I was a little disappointed that’s the videos I wanted are not available like t25 insanity max 30 so I’ll be canceling mine as well and jst buy the videos why pay 40 every 3 months and don’t have the videos I really wanted to use.

    • Nicole

      Hi there. I just read your concern, and incase you weren’t yet aware, beachbody has updated on demand to include EVERY PROGRAM! even the ones you wanted to try AND the new ones soon to be released this year. You get access to it ALL! $160 for a years worth of programming, along with 30 days of SHAKEology , and the other awesome features mentioned in the article, pretty amazing spotlight price☆
      Hope that helps :)
      Feel free to email me with questions, or feedback if you’ve since signed back up!

      • Stephanie

        I think I may be a little confused. So the Beachbody on Demand only gives a sample of all programs but in order to have access to the full programs, you must purchase these on top of the $160 annual fee? Am I understanding this correctly?

        • jen

          All I wanna know is for the 99.00 year, do I get ALL the workout programs to stream only ? because im not paying for streaming them and then having to buy the dvds on top of that

  3. Andy

    I love the online option especially when I will just do this once. It will cost me $38 for a P90x3 (compared to 120)and I am happy about it. I stream workouts straight to my Roku player and works like a charm.

    Also, free trial is good as a lot of people give up within first one month, in that case you don’t spend a dime.

  4. Carlos

    It would be useful if you dated your “reviews”, so readers can get an idea of how dated the info might be. When they started the online streaming and when you did the review would be critical. Hopefully things get better as time goes on.

  5. Yvonne Chacon

    I need to get in shape. I’m fat and need help

    • Joe Mama

      Just get T25 on Amazon. It is a great product and you can get it without dealing with BB’s sales staff and tricks. Once you have it, be prepared to follow it. Every day. You can’t start skipping. And you will have to start to tweak your diet too. But that gets easier after you start to lose the initial weight. Also it’s critical that, no matter what, you force yourself to stick with it through those first couple of weeks before you really start to see any results. But if you can get over that hump, you’ll get into the positive feedback loop. And then you’ll be amazed where you get. The diet changes will cause the weight loss and T25 will give your body shape and strength and endurance. It’s awesome.

  6. nancy

    is Piyo a part of beach body on demand?

    • Jess

      No, I don’t think it is.

      • Nicole

        It is now ?

    • Slavko

      Sure, PIYO is included in the subscription.

  7. Lacey Sturgis

    Is the 3 week yoga retreat part of BbOD?

    • Nicole

      Yes. It is♡ it’s fantastic!

  8. Savanna

    Does anyone have any insight on the nutrition plans that come with the BOD membership? I’m torn because I really want to do Insanity, but why pay $120 for the DVD when you could pay a little more and have access to a variety of workouts for the year? However, I think that it would be very helpful to have the nutrition plans that come with insanity, and BOD says you get access to some but I’m not sure if they’re the same. Thoughts?

    • Nicole

      Hi savanna.
      Yes!! The program meal plans, nutrition guides, recipes, FIXATE cooking segments, all that you need to be successful you WILL have access to with all access on DEMAND.
      If you’d like to join in a support challenge with the “My tracker challenge ” app, send me a email reply message. Would love to help keep you going.
      Rock on!

  9. Jane

    This might be a good program and a good deal. As a matter of fact I had bought Beachbody products in the past, but their add pops up in the middle of my workout and that totally aggravates me. I have a rhythm going and it is interrupted because I have to stop and wait five seconds before I can skip the add. The can put the add before the start of my workout, but don’t interrupt me during my workout

    • Nicole

  10. Lanan

    I have just started Beachbody on demand and so far I like it. But I also really like the Nike+ app which is free.

    • Natasha

      I have been using the Nike+ app and LOVE IT but at this point I’ve done both the Lean Fit and Body Weight Only plans multiple times and am getting a bit bored of the workouts. I am very interested in Beachbody On Demand but the only thing I don’t like is you can’t download the workout to your device so you can access it without wifi or draining your data. One reason I have stuck with Nike so long (well that and the fact it’s free)

  11. hola

    I smell a troll…

  12. Linda l

    I can’t get in to beachbody on demand it has me locked out. What can I do?

    • Slavko

      Contacting their support via e-mail will definitely help!

  13. Mary

    My husband and I both want to use the Beachbody on demand workouts and connect to our iPhones and watches. I can only find a way to connect one user. Does anyone know if more than one user can be linked to the same annual on demand subscription?

  14. Jodine Nay

    Curious about another person’s comment about advertisements popping up in the middle of workouts. Does this actually happen? Are you able to skip the ads?

    • Dee Ann Link

      I agree. It is aggravating to work out then all of a sudden you are stopping for an ad.
      Do ads still appear?

    • Sonja Andrus

      Hi, y’all.

      I’ve been using BoD for about a year now. And the All-Access since it started. I’ve had the paid version and the free version (just what I had already purchased on DVD) of BoD at times in the past. I have never had any ads pop up during my workout. I don’t know what that person was talking about.

    • Slavko

      There are no ads popping up! None

  15. Tanya Moe

    I only like autumns workouts. I have 21 day fix extreme. But I’m getting bored and not wanting country heat. Does this include new 30 min workouts from autumn. Can you stream from your tv if you don’t have Roku. Thank you

    • ERIN

      BB on Demand also has 21 Day fix , Country Heat (I know you don’t want that one), Beachbody Yoga Studio, Hammer and Chisel, Autumns bod Exclusive, Active Maternity and Kids and Family collection. The only way to stream from your tv is with a device unless you have a Smart tv, then you should be able to connect that way. Doing it from a laptop or iPad works fantastic.
      Let me know if you have anymore questions.

  16. SSD

    I read through the product reviews on line for every video. Piyo was the only one that had a “what you need to be successful” section. Stating just a yoga mat and enough room to take a step either direction. What equipment do some of the others require? I thought the hard corps looked interesting and while I own some weights it looked like they do chin ups and may need other equipment. Is there a way to see before purchasing what equipment is required?

    • Slavko

      Hey SSD,

      Answering this one late, but I hope it will help other readers.

      Most of the workouts don’t require any additional equipment. Some do, so I added a section in the review above, summarizing what you need for each and every one.

      Hope it helps

  17. Laura Guziak

    What kind of fitness equipment do I need?

    • Slavko

      I added this specific section in the review above. Hope it helps

  18. Emily

    I have seen the $160 deal and was wondering if ALL the programs are included in the $99 deal. I am not too fond of Shakeology so I did not want to pay the 160 so I want to opt for the 99 but only if it includes ALL of the workouts the beachbody has ever made

    • Missy

      This is what I want to know too.

      • Adrienne

        I’m wondering this same thing too!!! Anyone hear a response?

        • Alex

          Yes, since it’s advertised as an ALL-ACCESS membership for $99, it includes everything, except Shakeology & the portion containers.

    • Slavko

      Hey guys, the price issue is discussed above. I just added a new section that is more up to date.

  19. Kim

    I want to try the $39 for 3 months. Is that a one-time charge or will it automatically renew?

    • Slavko

      Hey Kim, see the updated price section above in the review.

  20. Nikki B

    Can you get this on a smart tv?

    • Slavko

      Sure Nikki, it is available on Roku, Amazon FIRE, Chromecast, Apple TV, and Android.

  21. Michele

    I am curious as to how many of the videos are appropriate for someone at a beginner level. Are there enough videos at various levels or are they all geared for the young and already pretty fit?

    • Dawn Kelley

      I started with beach body programs at almost 300lbs and was fine. Just know an unexercised body is going to struggle through even the lightest workouts, because it’s not use to working out.

      Insanity prob isn’t for beginners, but turbo jam is easy to start without being super fit. You really just have to do reasearch and find the trainer that fits you. The good thing about beach body is that you have several trainers to pick through. Liking your trainers style of workout encouragement will make you want to stick with them from simple workouts to more complex ones. I love Chaleane for example. Chaleane Johnson is most of my DVD workout library. Occasionally I’ll do a Tony Horton workout, but Chaleane is who I gravitate to the most. So I’d rather move up to harder workouts with her, if that makes any sense.

      Also many workouts invite you to do lower impact versions of some of what they’re doing. So you can start out at one level and take it to the next level on the same program. There is value in just going through 2 or three cycles of the same program if you are really out of shape. And seeing how your fitness/endurance level changes.

      At 260lbs (female, 5′ 4″), I was doing all but yoga X on P90x (I substituted in another yoga program). With some modifications, but not huge ones. Endurance over time will change far befor reaching your goal weight.

  22. ignacio

    My question is: if I do not live in the USA I can get them to buy the beachbody demand and I can see it from my country.
    Why could an Aunt buy it but I would use it since there is no possibility of invoicing outside the US

    • Slavko

      Hey ignacio, I think that you can log in, but perhaps it is better to ask customer support directly.

  23. Holly

    Is it $99 month or year?

  26. Marissa

    I bought the PIYO DVD pack. Do I have to use a DVD player to watch or is there a way to stream this program over internet since I already bought the DVDs?

    • Slavko

      Hey Marissa, there is no option to stream only a specific program. You have to subscribe to the beachbody on demand platform and access everything from there.

  27. Yineth Benavides

    Do you know if this is available from Colombia, South América?

  28. Ale

    To get this straight… $99 for the year (30 day money back guarantee) and it includes ALL of the beachbody work outs ALL the time?

    • Alex

      Yup, that’s it.

  29. Darlene

    Can you mirror the workouts from your iphone to apple tv?

    • Slavko

      Hey Darlene, yes, Beachbody on demand will work with an Apple TV.

  30. Wendi

    How can I stream with a smart tv? Is it like I log in through the internet just like I would on an iPhone? Is there an app I download on the smart tv? I have only used my smart tv to look at youtubes fitness videos and only want this if I can use my tv. No trying to workout using my phone. Does anyone know?

    • Slavko

      Hey Wendi, there is an app for Android and iOS, so you can play on any smart TV that you like.

  31. Maria

    Thinking of purchasing… how do I stream it on my tv? I have a fire stick / cromecast thing. Not to tech savvy but will it be easy to stream on tv? As well is it an app to use on iPhone? Will DoubleTime be added to it in November?

    • Slavko

      Hey Maria, I will update the review above about double time, but for now let me just say that you can definitely stream with ease on your TV. And there is an app for iOS.

      Sorry for replying so late, but I hope this will help other readers.

  32. Elizabeth

    This is a very detailed review and very helpful. One thing I’ve been trying to find, and can’t seem to, is a list of basic fitness equipment you would want to have at home to use with the program. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Slavko

      Hey Elizabeth,

      The section on required equipment is added to the review above. Hope it helps.

    • Slavko

      Hey Elena,

      The best solution for issues like this is to contact customer support directly. Either through e-mail or phone.

  34. Pam

    Can you use Beachbody on demand through your iPhone while on a business trip?

    • Slavko

      Sure Pam, there is an iOS app available in the app store.

  35. Cheri

    Can I do workouts from my phone (Android) or Kindle fire?

    • Slavko

      Hey Cheri, you can stream the videos on any Android device. Not sure about Kindle fire, gotta check that one.

  36. wendy syed

    Once I purchase the membership how can I have it on my tv or is it only on your phone and mobile device?

    • Slavko

      Hey Wendy, there is an app for Android, an app for iOS (Apple TV), or you can use Chromecast, Roku and Amazon Fire.

  37. Kelly

    I have been searching the comments and having issues finding the answer to this question. My husband and I do two different workouts. Can I stream at the same time that he is streaming but on two different devices? Thank for this article!! Very imformative.

    • Slavko

      Hey Kelly, sorry for answering this one so late, but I hope it will help other readers who are going through this comment section.

      I don’t know whether or not this is technically possible, so I’ll ask customer service and update the review once I know the answer.

  38. SR

    It seems that there is an overwhelming amount of workouts to chose from with Beachbody in Demand. When starting this program, I feel like I might not know where to start and then where to go to next. Is there guidance as to what workouts to chose if let’s say I want to tone up instead of doing all cardio? I basically just want to know how I start my own routine rather than just pick random workouts?

    • Slavko

      Hey SR,

      I’ll write a comprehensive article about which workouts are best for a beginner, and try to map a step-by-step Beachbody on Demand plan.

      For starters, let me just say that you can start with P90 (both weight loss and muscle tone), or PIYO if you are more of a beginner. The dance series are easy as well, but they are more cardio based.

      P90X is probably the next step, along with Focus T25, 21 Day extreme (though slightly less intense), and something like Core de Force.

      Then I’d say Insanity, Insanity Max 30, and finally the asylum series (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, though I find the Vol. 1 to be slightly harder – Vol.2 is more diverse though).

      Hope this helps. I’ll try and add a short section in the review above as well.

  39. Nathan

    I have read this article once then skimmed through it a second time looking for the updated info regarding what equipment is needed for the programs. I can’t seem to find that information, am I missing something? Since the article is so long and some of the info is dated it might help if you had a section titled “UPDATES” in bold along with the date, to make it easier for people who have already read the article to find new information. Just a suggestion.
