Workouts on Demand Giveaway

I’ve got something fun to share with all of you today, AND it even includes a little giveaway at the end, so check this out…

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a lovely woman from Workouts on Demand.

workouts on demand

Workouts on Demand is an online exercise site that showcases tons of online exercise videos that you can watch and use just about anywhere. The site allows you the option of either streaming the videos live from your computer, or you can download them via Flash or Windows Media Player. The site also typically adds one or two new videos each week, which is nice for those who might be looking to switch things up now and then.

Once I received my login for the site, I immediately noticed how user-friendly it was. When you click on the “Your Workout Selections” tab, you can quickly see the various categories of workout videos that are available.

After you click on a category, you are brought to a page that lists all of the exercise videos that are available for that particular category.

If you click on an exercise video within that list, you’ll get a drop-down box that gives you a brief summary of the workout, including the instructor, fitness level, equipment needed, and length of time. It also allows you to watch a short preview if you’d like, which I thought was a really key feature to include.

I must say…the Cardio Hip Hop #1 video looked pretty darn fun. If only I had those sort of moves. Winking smile

One of the things that I also noticed and really appreciated with the various exercise videos, is the fact that they’re done in the setting that they’re advertised for. For example, the site is useful for people who would like to complete their workouts either at home or on the go; all of the workout videos I have seen are, in fact, in either a home or other small location. That way, you know that you’re going to have whatever space that you might need.

The one thing that I wish they had were maybe a few exercise videos that were devoted to pregnancy, but that’s really the only one thing I can be picky about. And honestly, that’s really being picky, because there are definitely plenty of workouts on there that I or anyone else who is pregnant could still do; it just might be helpful for those who aren’t quite as sure of what types of workouts should be done or avoided. FYI: For those who are also preggo:

  • Always talk with your doc before getting involved in an exercise routine
  • Keep the heart rate below 140 bpm (beats per minute)
  • Avoid exercises that require you to lie on your back
  • Don’t attempt to start any new exercises at this time; stick with what you’ve been doing before you were expecting

*****

I wish that I could tell you that I’ve tried out a bunch of these videos over the past few weeks, but sadly, my overall exhaustion from the little prune has kept my workouts on the backburner for the past couple of weeks. I am slowly starting to feel like I may be ready for some shorter workouts though, which the site’s Express Workouts may come in quite handy for.

express workouts

For those of you who may only need (or have time for) a quick workout, the Express Workouts section would probably be perfect for you (and me!).

Most of these workouts are only 7-15 minutes, which is great for those of us who may be on the go, or looking to space out workouts a little bit throughout the day (remember, 3 10-minute sessions are just as good as one 30-minute session!). I’m really hoping to incorporate some of these a few times a week over the next few weeks.

  3. Lindsay says

    I would love to win this membership because my plate is very full right now and workouts have been low on my “to do” list. I want to change that in the new year and being able to accomplish my workouts at home would be so helpful!

  4. Victoria says

  7. Makenna says

    What a great idea! I would love this! I just currently moved out on my own, and don’t have all the space that I used to in my parents basement to work out. Finding a variety of workouts to choose from to do in a small space would be great!

  8. AA says

    hi! i am a long time reader but i have never commented before. i love your blog and read it everyday… =)

    i am a medical student at albany medical college, but am on vacation at home for a few months. it’s hard to get an affordable gym membership when i am moving around so much, so i would LOVE to win this membership so that i never have an excuse to not work out!

    thanks!

  9. Casey H says

    I would love this – I am recovering from a hip injury, and as a runner, I’m going stir crazy!! A new variety of at-home exercises would be just what the doctor ordered (literally!).

  10. Hayley says

    I would love the membership because my muscles are completely used to my jillian michaels video that I play daily before work

  11. Chelsea says

    I’d really love having this membership because my gym is through a local university, but it closes whenever the school is closed. It’s closed from Dec. 20-Jan. 12!!!

  12. Rachel says

    That Workouts on Demand looks great! I’d never heard of it before, but I’d love to win because I now only work out in my small kitchen/living room area and am running out of exercise workouts and DVDs – crossing fingers!

  13. taylor roberts says

    I would love to win because I do not always have enough time to get to the gym and even though doing home workouts are fun, the get repetitive. I would love to be exposed to new workouts and mixing it up often motivates me to strive forward!

  14. Dania says

  15. Diane Burns says

    I would love this opportunity! I’m always looking for new workouts and this looks like something that I would like very much!

  16. Kathryn says

    I don’t go to a gym, so I do most of my workouts to a DVD or on the treadmill. I’m always looking for a new video or workout I can do at home.

  17. Karen says

    I just picked up a whole bunch of new responsibilities at my job, which is great, but means workout times are going to be drastically condensed. This sounds like it’d be really helpful in keeping me motivated to squeeze in a workout when I can !

  18. Rachel says

    I would love to win this so I could start doing normal workouts again!! I am currently living out of the country now and miss working out on the elliptical and treadmill so much!! I’ve been doing workout DVDs but get sick of them so quickly. This website looks like it gives so many different options of workouts, you can never get bored with them!

  19. Elly says

    Being a full-time nursing student with a part-time job I have to find different ways to exercise without a gym membership. I would love to incorporate Workouts on Demand into my at-home workout regime!

  20. Liz says

    This looks awesome! I get bored easily and don’t have a lot of time so I need a wide variety or short, high impact exercises that I can switch up. This looks like a great resource!

  21. Karenann says

    I’m so excited to get healthy and fit during the New Year. This would be such a terrific way to start the New Year off right!

  22. Veronica says

    I would love to win this giveaway! I don’t have a membership to a gym or have the time to go, so a workout at home is what I need!

  23. Corinna says

    I would love to win! I’m in grad school and the short videos would be perfect study breaks on the busy days I can’t get to the gym.

  24. Erin says

    I would love to win this giveaway! I do a lot of at home workouts in combination with runs throughout the week. This would be an awesome alternative to the workout videos that I typically use.

  25. Brenna says

    Working out has been on the back burner for me for a while because I was busy planning my wedding and right after we got married we bought a house and pretty much gutted it and started from scratch! We just got moved in last week but still have some things to finish up so the express workouts would be perfect to help me get back in the swing of things as we get everything finished with the house and get settled in.

  26. Leah T says

    I have become very stagnant in my workout routine but I do not have the money for a gym membership so I feel stuck. I would really enjoy being able to use this membership to liven my workouts!

  27. Maria says

    I would love to win this because a) netflix removed my favorite workout videos and b) I like that it lists the length of the workout. That helps me to grab even just a quick 20 minute option rather than no workout at all.

  28. Sara says

    I would love to win because I am getting married next October and really need some fun workouts to kick my training into gear!

  29. Kathryn Szklany says

    I’d love to win this give away and give to my brother. He has just started his weight loss journey and he is always looking for different exercise routines. This would be a great way for him to broaden his workout repertoire.

  30. Erin Gates says

    I would love to win b/c I would love to add something new to my fitness routine for the new year. I already wo @ home so this would really add to that!

  31. Katie M says

    I’d love to win a 6 month membership so that I can add a little variety to my workout routine. I love running outdoors, but I’m sure there will be a few days this winter when it would be safer (or just more comfortable) for me to stay indoors.

  32. Stephanie says

    Living in chilly NY makes it tough to motivate myself to head out for a run during the winter months. I normally rely on a few Jillian Michaels DVDs, but I would love to switch things up and try this subscription!

  33. melanie says

    There are days when I can’t/don’t feel like going to the gym but still want to feel like I did something- this would be a great way to do that!

  34. christy says

    I’m just getting back into working out again after a foot injury and the videos I have been doing are kind of boring… this would be a nice change and maybe encourage me to work out more!!

  35. says

    I would love to win this 6 month membership because I will be getting married in June! I am an avid exerciser, but would love to switch things up a bit to get nice and toned for the wedding. :)

  36. Taylor says

    I would love to win this giveaway because I often get bored trying to make up my own workouts and this would be a great way to do new, fun workouts :)!

  37. Nicole says

    I would love to win this because I will soon have a little one at home and won’t have much time to fit in any workouts outside the home!

  38. Becca says

    I would LOVE this giveaway!! We live in a very remote area with only about 700 people, so there is no access to a gym, workout classes, or anything!!! All I have is the same old videos from when I first started working out! Plus, working off the last of my baby fat from baby #4!!!!

  39. says

    I would love to win the membership because it would be so convenient while I’m trying to balance school, work and working out! I’d also love to be able to try a variety of workouts without having to spend a lot of money.

  40. says

    This would be so perfect during these nasty winter months. It’s so much harder to be motivated to get to the gym when it requires going out in the 10 degree weather. I’d love to have these workouts available to do right at home, especially since there are so many to choose from.

  41. Rochelle says

    I would love to win this membership because I’m trying to lose weight (50+lbs), and this would be a great way to get started. I just set up a tiny tv in the garage so I could workout, but having an online membership to this type of thing would save me the money of having to go purchase workout dvds. I could hook my computer up to the tv, and I’d have my own little workout area.

  42. Andrea says

    I would ABSOLUTELY love this membership. As a college, student it can be difficult to get to the gym. This membership would allow me to do workouts in my apartment even when I am busy!

  43. Julie P says

    Wow! 6 months!! I would love this as I am an at-home exerciser and currently work out mainly to dvds. Would LOVE to try this website out!!

  44. Rachel S. says

    I would love to win this. It would be a great kick off for me to finally lose the weight I gained when I had my kids. I really need the help.

  45. Jennifer L says

    I’d love this… I get bored very easily in workouts. Any kind of cardio equipment kills me. Running outside is nice, but I need to shake things up a few days a week! This looks like something I could really get into.

  46. Lily says

    When the weather starts to get bad, I really love being able to do my workouts at home. I do some now, but this looks like it has tons of variety – I’d love that! :D

  47. Jordan K says

    My (expensive) gym membership was up the beginning of this month, and in an effort to save some money before I run off and get married in March, I’ve decided not to renew it. The Workouts on Demand might just be the break I am looking for, because I can’t stop exercising 2 1/2 months before my wedding!!

  48. Alexandra says

    I’d love to win this membership because with my work schedule I usually only have time for short, quick workouts! This membership would allow me to bust out a quick sweat sesh wherever I may be!

  49. Jenna U. says

    I’m pregnant (due in 3 weeks, eek!) and would love to win! This would be the perfect motivation to squeeze in some workout time because I have a feeling visits to the gym will be few and far between!

  50. Elizabeth says

    I would love this bc I’m in university and the gym is so old and sucks, and it would be perfect to do workouts in my room!

  51. Ashley says

    I would love to win this! I am just beginning my healthy lifestyle journey and have been looking online recently for workouts that don’t cost a fortune. This would be a perfect way to workout in the comfort of my home, as I am not ready for a gym setting yet.

  52. Amanda says

    I would love to win this so that I could get some workouts done at home! The gym I go to is 25 minutes away from my house, so making time to workout has been pretty difficult with my busy schedule!

  53. Laura C. says

    I’m currently recovering from a running injury so I’m having to find new workouts, particularly ones I can do from home, to fill the void. This would be great!

  54. Maddie says

    Its hard to find a good a fun workout in college. This website would be perfect for working out in my dorm room at school!

  55. kolya says

    Oh this would be so perfect…I do a lot of house and pet sitting where I actually stay at the owner’s home. It is SO hard to fit in exercise even with dog walks because they rarely keep moving or are old and sick. Love this idea and think the flash drive downloads would be great just in case of no wifi access!

  56. @pluvk says

    This is awesome!! I just broke my toe on Christmas Eve (great way to start the holiday, huh?), so I’m on the lookout for more “toe-friendly” workouts. :-) This would be great!

  57. Anna says

    I’d love to workout at home more often. It’s too dark and cold before and after work right now and I’ve over used my workout DVD collection.

  58. says

    I’d love to win this 6 month subscription! I like to follow videos or programs for my workouts because when I try to plan my own I WAYYYY over-think it and end up deciding not to work out at all. I’m guilty of the all-or-nothing mentality… :-/ Anyways, I also think the subscription is a great source of variety for my workouts!! WooHoo!!

    I would LOVE to win!! I do taxes, which means I’m gonna be too busy to get to the gym, but I don’t want to do what almost every tax preparer does…gain weight during tax season. YUCK! Thanks for the fun giveaway :)

  60. says

    This is a great alternative to the gym, I love having at-home workout options! I am looking to get more in to Yoga so this would be an awesome way for me to try out some new videos!!

  61. Cassie says

    This looks awesome! There are so many times that I need to work out at home and can’t make it to the gym, so this would help me stay motivated!

  62. Jenn says

    I would love to win so I can drop my gym and pick up classes at the yoga studio a few times a week without losing out on the strength/cardio portion of fitness

  63. Amanda L says

    This is great! I neeeeed something new to spice up my workouts! I am in such a ridiculous rut and I don’t even feel like I’m doing anything anymore. All of the variety of these videos would be just the spice I need!

  64. says

    I would love to win this workout because lately I’ve been so busy with work my schedule has been work – eat – study for exams – shower – sleep. I haven’t had a spare moment to fit in the gym and at home workouts would be PERFECT as I can always manage to find time while I’m at home to do the workouts, it’s just getting to the gym that’s the problem.

  65. Alli says

    I don’t have the best collection of exercise videos at home and I love variety! I would love to try this, I have a feeling it would be perfect for my lifestyle!

  66. Molly C. says

    I’d love to win this giveaway because I am starting a new job next week and it would be such a time saver to work out in my apartment rather than going to a gym in the morning!

  67. Noelle says

    I would love to win this because of all the different workouts that I could try. And they are quick so I could find the time to do one or two! Thanks!

  68. Rebecca says

    I would love this site! I do the majority of my workouts at home (lots of fitness DVD’s) and this would be a great way to incorpotate something new!

  69. Olivia says

    I too Courtney have started a new job after being a stay at home mom for 12 years and now with my new schedule trying to find time to workout has been more of a challenge. I am not able to go early in the am’s (got to get kids up and to school and then off to work for me) anymore and not able to evenings either with my kids activities and during the day I now work. Would love to try this membership since I could do it at home. Congratulations to you btw on your pregnancy! Very exciting times for you and Jay. Thank you for this offer! Olivia

  70. Meghan says

    I would like a membership because I have little time and little space (in my tiny apartment) for workouts, so this sounds fabulous!

  71. says

    I’m just getting back in to working out after taking a few months off. Love me some pilates and yoga and have been looking for a good downloadable selection!

  72. Ashley says

    This sounds perfect for the times I’m too unmotivated to wake up at 5am in the freezing cold to hit the gym. My house is way more cozier :)

  73. jackie says

    I just started a new job today and this would be perfect to help me the next few weeks/months as I ‘transition’ and find a workout schedule that best fits with my new work hours.

  74. Kristina m says

    Would love to win! some days I don’t have the time or energy to drive to the gym would love the option to work out from home.

  75. Tracey says

    I work out at home and would love to try these videos as I am very busy with school and work! They look like so much fun and offer such a variety of videos to avoid boredom and repetition.

  76. Danielle says

    I’d love to give this a try because they can be done at home without much equipment, which is perfect for my busy schedule!

  77. Jamie H. says

    I would love to win this membership because working full-time with two little kiddos and making time to the gym has been difficult. This would help me accomplish my workouts in the comforts of my home!

  78. Nicki says

    I just moved to Michigan and work from home–I would love to find a convenient option to keep my workouts fresh if I can’t brave the snowy MI roads this winter.
    Thanks for the giveaway Courtney!!!

  79. Julie says

    I would love to win because with 2 little ones at home it makes it hard to get to the gym so I usually end up working out at home. It would be nice to have more of a variety of choices!

  80. Marin says

    This is awesome! I’m traveling all the time for work lately, and while it (thankfully) hasn’t been too awful keeping up with my workout schedule lately, I’m definitely not able to try as many new workouts as I’d like. This would be the perfect solution!
