When Beachbody On Demand was released in 2015 it basically brought an end to the DVD as we know it.
Beachbody workouts were the very last DVDs I was buying and since On Demand has come around I have not bought a single one.
And that’s a good thing. Times change and pretty much everyone was wanting a way to stream or download Beachbody workouts for a couple of years. Beachbody held on for a few more years pumping out DVDs until they were ready to release a very good product. That’s kind of their deal.
A few things have changed since my first review of Beachbody On Demand in 2015 and I decided to bring it up to 2018.
You probably already have an idea that Beachbody On Demand is where you can access every single Beachbody workout ever made online. So lets start with the important stuff first.
You will be able to view every Beachbody workout online with any Beachbody On Demand membership. Meal plans and workout sheets are also included online. There are three options to choose from when selecting a Beachbody On Demand membership.
- $99 Year Annual All Access Plan: Every Beachbody workout for less than the price of one workout on DVD. By far the best value.
- $59 Six Month All Access Plan: Maybe you’re the sort of person who likes to do two 90 day programs a year and that’s it.
- $39 Three Month All Access Plan: Maybe you only like to do one 90 day program a year.
All of the plans above are billed in advance and come with a 30 day money back guarantee. The three month plan comes with a 14 day free trial.

It’s quite simple to start streaming your favorite workouts with your Beachbody On Demand account. Besides a membership you will need a streaming device such as an Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Chromecast.
I’ve been using the Roku 4 for two years and haven’t had a problem. It seems to work better with a HDMI cable versus wireless.
After logging into my Roku account you simply add the Beachbody On Demand app to your channels.
Which then takes you to the home screen for Beachbody On Demand.
Pick the program you want to do. I just so happen to be doing Insanity Max 30 right now.
Pick the workout you want to do.
And try not to puke.
You can also download the Beachbody On Demand app on iTunes for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
Apple Watch users can stream their workouts on their iPhone or iPad, and Apple Watch will project real-time heart rate and caloric burn on those screens.
The Beachbody On Demand app is also available for Android users via Google Play.
You will need a Beachbody On Demand membership to make the apps work.
If you are wondering how to cancel Beachbody On Demand you only need to visit this link here. Refunds and cancellations are done very quickly.
I’ve really enjoyed Beachbody On Demand. It makes everything so much easier to manage and its more affordable than buying DVDs. Think about all the shelf space anybody who is new to Beachbody is going to save.
All joking aside there is a ton of value with Beachbody On Demand. People can now sample all of the workouts for $40 for 3 months instead of spending $120 on one workout DVD.
That’s doable for just about everybody’s budget. If you don’t like any of the workouts – which is impossible – you can cancel your membership and not have to worry about sending the DVD’s back.
As an added bonus you can download workouts and view them offline as long as you keep your subscription active. They send you an encryption key which lets you access the files on your hard drive for those times when you’re not able to access the internet.
No more scratched discs. No more sending DVDs back. Theres only doing whatever workout you want whenever you want with Beachbody On Demand.
