5 Incredible Workouts For Getting In Shape Without The Expensive Classes

By Sponsor on Sep 22, 2017 5:00AM

Daily Burn is an online fitness community geared towards getting you the results you want.


Well, winter is coming — and unless you're really, really into Game of Thrones, for most of us that means we tend to fall a little behind on our fitness regiment. As work gets busier, kids go back to school, travel increases and holidays hit (the unfortunate trifecta of Halloween candy, Thanksgiving meals and Christmas dinners), it can be hard (if not impossible) to squeeze in a trip to the gym.

Even when do you get the chance to go, how much time do you usually waste either waiting around for a machine to become available, aimlessly wandering in between the crowds trying to figure out how to squeeze in something effective? Or how many times have you wondered whether you're actually committing to the right routine without guidance? For example, what's the best type of workout for you? What's the best form for an exercise, so it's both effective and not injury-inducing? And finally, the age old question: why am I not getting the results I want?

Whether you're stuck in a workout rut, don't want to spend $30 on a Soul Cycle class, can't invest in a personal trainer, or just feel tired of going to the gym, check out this Daily Burn Premium Membership. This online community shows you how to turn any space into your own private gym — and the guidance offered to you is like having a personal  trainer by your side and online accountability buddies to help you stay fit. Since you can do all the workouts in your own space with minimal or no equipment, it also means you can always fit in a workout, in a way that suits your schedule — even if that means a quick 15 minutes before work, the hour where the baby is sleeping or after you've had dinner with your partner. We all know when it comes down to sticking with a healthy habit, it's consistency that's key. The beauty of Daily Burn is that it makes daily movement accessible, and is flexible based on the amount of time you have available — that's the opposite of studios and classes with strict time commitments and schedules. 

Here's how it works: when you visit Daily Burn, you'll be asked questions to help determine your fitness goals, then receive a personalized plan based on your responses. After you get an assessment of your fitness level, the experts behind the scenes will deliver customized workouts and tangible goals based on your first set of responses. You actually need to enjoy the workouts to stick to them, and Daily Burn kept that in mind — your customized workouts will be based on your lifestyle and preferences. 

You'll work with some of the best certified trainers to help you meet your goals, all with years and years of experience helping clients and moving their own bodies. And just like having a personal trainer, your Daily Burn workouts are tailored to the results you want — so whether you have just fifteen minutes or the rare whole hour to spare, Daily Burn offers options that are perfect for your schedule and are much, much improved from random YouTube workouts. 

Daily Burn offers 20 different types of programs, including dance, high-intensity cardio, yoga, strength training and more. Instead of hitting plateaus because you're sticking to the same routine, there's aways a new way to challenge your body — plus,  new workouts are added daily. The possibilities for growth are endless! A sampling of what you'd get includes:

  • Power Cardio
    Lose weight and get toned with this cardiovascular workout! It's good for beginner and intermediate levels, and part of a six week program. 
  • Undefeated
    This class helps you lose weight, and gain strength. It's appropriate for intermediate fitness levels and is part of a six week program.
  • Yoga
    Increase flexibility and build strength — yoga is good for intermediate fitness levels, and is part of a two month program. 
  • Pilates Phase One
    Tone your body and increase flexibility. This class is good for beginners, and is part of a three week program.
  • Move!
    This fun class helps you dance your way to fitness! It's good for beginner and intermediate levels, and is part of a four week program.

The best part about Daily Burn is that you can combine any of these videos with other videos, making your workouts not only ones you love, but a holistic combination of cardio, strength building, flexibility training and more. You won't be stuck doing something you hate, or something that flat out doesn't work for your body. Whether you're a beginner just trying to learn proper form, or a seasoned veteran looking to increase muscle mass, Daily Burn has a program for you.

Stream Daily Burn through your laptop, desktop, mobile device, TV and more, so you can stay on track even if you're on the road or on vacation. And unlike other online programs where you might like you're doing it all on your own, Daily Burn includes the support of a passionate community. You can connect with other members via live chat, and share stories of your fitness journey. 

And unlike a SoulCycle class or an Equinox membership, Daily Burn costs just a fraction of what you'd expect to pay or usually pay — while getting the same benefits (if not more). Right now, you can get a one year premium membership to Daily Burn for $99, 69% off the usual cost of $323.40. That's less than four studio classes, and way less than you'd pay in monthly fees for a yearly gym membership.
