Maybe it has something to do with the start of the new year or perhaps I just happened to notice because I started paying attention more, but Daily Burn has a lot of commercials on the air right now. Their marketing paid off and they somehow managed to burn in my brain that I just have to give the free trial a shot. After three weeks, I am ready to dish out the dirt.
There are enough fitness videos to last a lifetime. Seriously, all different levels, styles and durations. In my three weeks I’ve been a member of the site I have tried Pilates, Yoga, and a Zumba-style class. There are also classes specifically for core, if you only have 15 minutes, and for pregnant women. There’s something for everyone!
Caloric Burn Updates
During every water break (they give you those generally in ten minute increments) you are updated with how many minutes you are in and how many calories you have burned so far. This is a great feature if you have to cut your workout short, which happens to me a lot with the baby!
Daily Burn is available on many different platforms (this is also under my bad list, but we will get to that). You can stream it on your computer, phone, SmartTV, or use a gaming system or something like a Roku or Amazon Fire. This is great for obvious reasons – it means you can turn virtually any room into your own gym!
At $12.95 a month you just can’t beat it. You can upgrade your membership and have access to personalized training (at $50 additional bucks a month) but if you are a penny-pincher like me, the $12.95 will do you just fine. Especially since you also get nutritional help and access to healthy recipes.
Like I said earlier, you can stream the fitness videos through many different platforms but they site is lagging behind a little bit and aren’t up to date. For example, you can stream on the Xbox 360 but not the Xbox One, which is the newer model. I hope they fix this soon!
Hate. Autopay. That’s all.
Some Videos Require Equipment
Some of their videos require equipment. It’s straightforward things – a yoga mat, kettlebell, or a set of weights. You can order the equipment directly through their site if you wish. In my experiences, it was all optional.
The videos I worked my way through offered little explanation and you just had to pick it up as you went. This is a good way to save time on a workout and typically by the second viewing you already have it down pat, but it can be overwhelming at times with the more complicated moves.
The Bottom Line:
This site is a really awesome tool if you want to workout more but simply can’t make it to the gym, for personal or weather-related reasons. They offer a wide variety of fitness videos that definitely get your heart rate up and allow you to turn any room in your home into a gym!
