Streaming membership workout programs are an amazing option for at-home fitness. It’s so much easier to walk into my living room and exercise. I don’t have to make the effort to go to the gym. Or have someone watch my kids for me so I can workout.
The last time I signed up for a gym membership it cost over $200. That was just to sign up. A monthly fee had to be paid each month to keep the membership. And the membership didn’t include a workout routine or a meal plan to follow.
When I went to the gym I didn’t know what exercises would help me to lose weight. I would spend 30 minutes on the treadmill attempting to jog. Then call it good for the day.
Of course, that didn’t get me anywhere in my weight loss journey. I liked taking classes because there was an instructor to follow. But I often felt awkward. I didn’t know the moves and felt embarrassed.
But when you’re working out to a streaming membership like Beachbody you don’t have to worry about embarrassing yourself. Because you’re able to work out in the comfort of your own home.
What are Streaming Membership Workouts
Streaming membership workout programs are like Netflix for exercise. You’ll pay a fee for a membership program. Then, you’ll have access to hundreds of workouts from the comfort of your own home.
Or where ever you have access to the internet. So you can exercise on your lunch break or while you are at the park with your kids.

I took Les Mill classes when I had a membership to 24-hour Fitness. The class that I enjoyed was CRXWORK. Which is available on demand. I thought you would need a lot of equipment to do these classes at home. But you can do a lot of the classes with no equipment or things like hand weights and resistance bands.

Tips for Finding a Streaming Membership that Works for You
Many of the streaming memberships listed above have a free trial period. So take advantage of that time to find a membership that works for you. Things you want to look for are if the workouts are for beginners, intermediate, or advanced.
Ask yourself these questions when considering signing up for a streaming membership. Are you new to working out or having you been working out of years? Do you like cardio, strength training, yoga, or pilates?
Also, do you already have the equipment you’ll need? Do you have the room you need to store it? For Peloton workouts, you can use a stationary bike or a treadmill. Do you have room in your home for this type of equipment?
