OMG!! The Beachbody On Demand App for iPhone Is Here!

And now, they can be even more accessible with the brand-new Beachbody On Demand app for iPhone that gives you on-the-go access to your workouts, program calendars, fitness guides, and nutrition plans, and lets you download up to seven of your favorite workouts so you can access them even if you’re off the grid.


Features of the Beachbody On Demand App for iPhone
This app includes the same features you love on…with a few extras!

The brand new Offline Mode feature will allow you to download up to seven full workouts on the app. Once a workout is downloaded, you can access it at any time in the app, even if you’re without a cell or WiFi connection.

The App also features the ability to AirPlay to an Apple TV and Cast to a Chromecast device so you can stream and view your favourite workout videos on your TV.

Through the home screen, you’ll be able to access your Member Library, the Challenge de Jour (aka your workout of the day) and exclusive content from your favourite super trainers like Autumn Calabrese, Tony Horton and Sagi Kalev. Every time you log on, you’ll be directed back to the last program you viewed. That way, you can jump right back into your workouts without missing a beat.

How to Work Out With the Beachbody On Demand App
If you’ve ever explored Beachbody On Demand, you know it’s packed with so many workouts that it’s hard to imagine ever getting bored! Over 400 workouts! From bodybuilding and hip-hop to yoga and HIIT, there’s something for everyone. And, the workouts range in length from 10 minutes to 90 minutes, so there’s no excuse to not get in a sweat session.

For those new to Beachbody On Demand, here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find within the Beachbody On Demand app for iPhone:

Member Library – Here you will find all the complete workout programs that are included with your Beachbody On Demand subscription as well as those you’ve purchased. These include P90X, P90X3, INSANITY, Brazil Butt Lift, TurboFire, and many more. Did we say over 400 workouts?

Challenge Du Jour Workouts – Every day, we highlight a workout within Beachbody On Demand. They’re a mix of brand-new workouts from Super Trainers like Autumn Calabrese and Sagi Kalev as well as workouts from programs you might not yet have tried.

How to Get Started with Beachbody On Demand
You can look through the Beachbody On Demand app for iPhone and see the details of programs without logging in, but if you want to watch an exercise video or view a meal plan, you’ll need to log in, restore, or register.

You can sign in to your account using your Beachbody On Demand log in credentials or start a 30-day free trial. If you previously purchased Beachbody On Demand through Apple TV, choose the “Restore Account” option on the login screen. Don’t have a Beachbody On Demand account? Email me at and I will get you started right away.

No WiFi? No Problem.
We want to make it as easy as possible to watch your workouts whenever you want to, and wherever you want to. So we’re giving you two ways to get your workout in through the Beachbody On Demand app for iPhone.

The first is to stream your workout over WiFi or cellular data, just as you would stream a TV show or a movie. As expected, the better and faster your connection, the better your streaming experience will be.

The second is by downloading up to seven videos to the Beachbody on Demand app with Offline Mode, as mentioned above. Longer workouts and higher-quality workouts take up more space, so if you’re short on storage, you may want to download a lower quality version of your favorite workout or choose shorter workouts. Once a workout is downloaded, you can access it at any time in the app, even if you’re without a cell or WiFi connection.

How to download a workout from the Beachbody On Demand App:
1. Click into the program that contains the workout you would like to download.
2. Click the downward icon to the right of the workout.
3. Select the download quality you would like to use. The higher the quality, the more storage it will take up. Additionally, longer videos will also take up more storage.
4. If you are not connected to WiFi, you will be asked if you like to use cellular data to download the video. Choose how you would like to download the video to begin the process.

Click here to get the Beachbody On Demand app for iPhone! The email me and I will send you access to your free 30 day trial of Beachbody on Demand and coach you through your initial set up! Okay, I have to go now and download my favourite 7 workouts. They are going to be 4 bulk workouts from Body Beast, one recovery workout from P90X2, one Piyo workout and one workout from Cize (Crazy 8's).

I'm so excited.

How to Get Great Results from 22 Minute Hard Corps

You’re too busy. The workouts are too difficult. You don’t have the space or the budget for tons of equipment. Tony Horton has heard every excuse imaginable for not getting in shape, and his newest fitness program, 22 Minute Hard Corps, puts an end to three of the biggest obstacles holding people back: Time, experience, and convenience.

“If you can carve out 22 minutes a day to exercise—and believe me, everyone can—you have all the time you need to lean out and muscle up,” says Horton. “This program is fast. It’s furious. And it only requires a few key pieces of equipment. I don’t care how many times you’ve tried and failed to get in shape in the past—if you want to be leaner and stronger than you are right now, this program will get you there.”

What inspired 22 Minute Hard Corps? The men and women of the United States military. During the last 15 years, Horton has toured dozens of bases all over the world, helping troops in every branch of the armed forces maximize their physical potential. “I have tremendous respect for our troops,” says Horton. “And I wanted to honor them by creating a simple, challenging, boot camp-style program that delivers functional, real-world strength to everyday people.”

The program consists of eight routines that alternate between total-body cardio and resistance workouts—one a day, six days a week. “This is a pretty big departure from P90X,” says Horton. “The workouts are shorter, the pace is often quicker, there’s more user participation, and most of the moves are easier to pick up. It’s back to basics for mind-blowing results.”

If you have any strength training experience, many of the exercises will look and feel familiar. “We did that on purpose to eliminate the learning curve,” says Horton. “Ninety percent of the exercises are fresh, and each one is engineered to maximize muscle recruitment, but they’re also similar enough to exercises you already know so that you won’t have to waste time learning totally new movements.”

That’s a good thing, since the sequence of exercises can be relentless—moving from, say, push-ups to squats to pull-ups with little or no rest in between. You’ll complete three rounds of exercises in each workout, doing your best to keep up with the military-style cadence called out by Horton. Your mission: Give him every rep. On his call. Every single time.

Dumbbells and a pull-up bar (or resistance bands with a door attachment) are all you need to get started. But if you want to supersize your results, you can pick up the optional (and all-new) Variable Resistance Beachbody PT Sandbag. “Unlike a dumbbell, a sandbag’s center of gravity shifts as you lift it,” says Horton, explaining that a sandbag’s effectiveness comes from its instability. “As the sand moves inside the bag, your stabilizing muscles have to work overtime to keep you balanced.” The harder they work, the faster they grow.

While 22 Minute Hard Corps might sound intimidating, Horton promises that anyone can do it—regardless of fitness level. “Every exercise has modifier, so even if you can’t do the main move, you can do a less difficult version of it that hits the same muscles. Either way, you’re going to sweat buckets. This program is tough. But if you finish all eight weeks, you’ll see a leaner, stronger person staring back at you in the mirror—and that’s a powerful experience.

Ready to get started? Here are three tips to get the most out of 22 Minute Hard Corps:

Don’t Miss Any Days
The most important element of any training program is consistency. “If you only workout two or three days a week, you won’t see dramatic results,” says Horton. “It would be like only going to work three days a week, or only eating twice a week.”

Dial in Your Diet
“I can tell you a thousand stories of people who do the workout, but don’t do the diet, and get ho-hum results,” says Horton. “Your diet has to be on point. If you want to train like a warrior, you have to eat like a warrior.” With the accompanying Rations for Results meal plan, Horton will show you how easy it is to make healthy eating choices a habit.

Don’t Overdo It
“Too many people let their ego get in the way of a good workout,” says Horton. “Don’t try to blow the doors off the first few times—be patient, pace yourself, and do the modifiers if you need to.” You have to push yourself to see results, but you should never peter out early. “Finish every workout,” says Horton. “No excuses.”
