My New Year’s resolution last year was to workout 5 days a week, unless I was really sick. Like most New Year’s resolutions, I didn’t (completely) stick with it. Instead, I skipped a workout here and there, BUT I was able to continue working out on a regular basis. Most recently, this has primarily been by lifting heavy weights in the gym. I’ve loved seeing my results, but knew I had to start doing cardio as well (I don’t mind cardio, but since I was trying to bulk I knew cardio would speed up my metabolism and probably make it more difficult to bulk).
Since I’m happier with where my body is now, I decided I could give cardio a try again. I purchased a Beachbody on Demand subscription three days ago, and since then I’ve completed three workouts classified as “intermediate/advanced” (the workouts range from “beginner” to “advanced”).
Despite having been working out regularly for the last 9 months, the Beachbody workouts definitely gave me a good workout! Previously, I used to spend an hour and 15 minutes lifting in the gym, but now I can do lifting, cardio, and endurance all in one workout!
I love that I can get a good workout in, not only at home (in my living room!), but in 30 minutes!
The workouts flew by, because instead of counting reps myself and focusing solely on song lyrics, the trainers really kept me entertained. They cheer you on constantly, remind you to keep your form, and do countdowns, often with music in the background.
In the future, I’m really looking forward to doing some of the dance workouts and yoga sessions that they also have on Beachbody on Demand, especially on the days I don’t want to workout (plus I’m looking forward to learning some new dance moves)!
Overall, I’m really happy with not only the quality and difficulty of the workouts, but also the variety! Not to mention, Beachbody on Demand is available in a yearly subscription that costs less than a cheap gym membership!
