Marquee Monday: Beach Body On Demand
About three years ago I joined BBD on a whim because of the great price ($99/ year) and amount of product received. BBD gives you access to all Beach Body workouts ever created. I once read someone describe BBD as the " Netflix" of fitness workouts. 😂 Initially, when I subscribed to BBD, I had goals of losing weight and having a variety of workouts- of which it delivers. But at the time I had a lot of personal issues going on, so I wasn't as consistent as I aimed to be.
After about two years of doing BBD on and off last year- BBD and I connected with the 80 Day Obsession workout series. I wasn't working full time at the time and needed to do something for my high stress level and depression I was dealing with. I did the “ A Little Obsessed” series first and was hooked. Then I started 80 Day and became literally " obsessed" with the results. I have never been into lifting heavy weights because I had the misconception in mind that I would bulk up. This is not true for me! I was actually getting leaner and a little bulk in the right places (Hello Peach Bootie!).
Before I had BBD I had purchased many of the workouts such as Hip Hop Abs, Piyo, Turbo Fire to name a few. My interest in fitness has been a part of my life. 😁Those workouts are on BBD along with over 700 workouts to choose from. You can never get bored and BBD speaks to all interests.Get this - they have Country Music theme workouts and workouts in Spanish. You can access BBD anywhere you have internet access ,so it travels well too.
Since I am a Pure Barre Babe for life I supplement with BBD when I cannot make it to the studio, feel like adding an extra workout or my busy teacher schedule calls for a quick at home workout.
Currently I am doing the Morning Meltdown 100 workout on BBD. This workout is no more than 30 minutes a day and has 100 different workouts! I think it would be excellent for a beginner who wants personal trainer results without the price!
Now let's get into the rundown in the F.A.S.T. rating system ( F- Fun/ A- Accessibility/ S- Skill/ T- Time):
Fun- The variety of workouts available meets all interest. There are Hip Hop Dance workouts and Military themed workouts. What ever your definition of fun is- BBD has an answer!
Accessibility- All access, all the time via the Internet. That means you can do workouts on your phone. I once did a workout during one of my breaks at work. And the price is unbeatable, $99 for a year! It's a steal! There are props you can buy directly from BBD or you may be able to get them for a more affordable price on Amazon.com.
Skill- All skill levels are welcomed. And a bonus is every member is given a coach who can suggest workouts for you, meal plans and encourage you through whatever your goal may be.
Time- Workout times vary but it seems as though most workouts are between 20-30 minutes. There are ones that are longer depending on the workout series.
If you have fitness goals BBD is a great investment in yourself. Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below.
