I’ve done P90X off and on for a few years, and I run outdoors periodically, and walk most evenings for a while on our treadmill. However, I started doing Daily Burn a few weeks ago (since pretty much everyone else at GreenMellen was already doing it) and I’m really enjoying it.
P90X gives a great workout, but it’s the same few DVDs over and over and over. During most of them I can recite their silly jokes word-for-word for the 30 minutes of the workout. Daily Burn is literally a new workout every day. They do them live each day at 9em EST, and then they’re available on-demand for the next 23 hours. I usually do mine around 7:30am, so it’s technically yesterday’s workout.
Do it anywhere
Another thing I like about Daily Burn is the ability to do it anywhere. P90X relied on DVDs, but Daily Burn is streamed from your device. It can be done through their website on virtually any computer, or from their iPhone or Android app. You can watch it right on the screen, or push it to your TV using Chromecast.
The workouts are solid
I’m finding the workouts to be a good level of challenge for me. They’re not super hard, but they certainly push me most days. Different trainers have different levels of intensity, and my co-workers already know what to expect based on who the trainer is that day.
Starting at 9:30am is weird
I had wondered what happened if you were to start a workout at 9:30am, while they were in the middle of a live one. Could you still stream the old one? Ali did this a few days ago, and it was messy. You were pretty much forced to join in on the live one, but you couldn’t really pause it or rewind or anything. You either need to be all-in right at 9:00, or wait until 10:00 when it’s available on-demand.
If you’re looking for a good new workout, give Daily Burn a try. They have a 30-day trial, and then it’s $14.95/mo. They have a “premium” plan for $26.95/mo, but the basic plan will give you plenty to do.
