I Don’t Know What Happened To Exercise TV But I’ve Found A Couple of Good Options For Us.

Still wondering what happened to Exercise TV? Me too and I’ve been on the lookout for an alternative.  I’ve found two products that appear to offer even more.

StreamFit – StreamFit is a web service that streams unlimited workout videos for $19.99 a month.  This site has an impressive panel of contributors that are experts in very specific aspects of fitness:  Metabolic Training, Pregnancy Fitness, Fitness Over 40, Workouts for Busy Moms, Corrective Exercise and Performance, Kettlebell and Combat Conditioning.

The site says that their workouts are meant to be ‘intense and effective’.  Chair exercise programs are not included. If you’d like to try StreamFit before you buy, they offer a seven day subscription free.

Gaiam TV – Gaiam TV is a service based on workout DVDs that are in Gaiam’s massive library.  I’m guessing it would be hard to not find what you’re looking for here.  The variety is amazing.  The library has everything from The Firm’s Absolute Core, to Patricia Moreno’s Kickbox: Core Cross Train to PM Chi for Beginners.

The site also provides inspirational films and documentaries. Gaiam has a 10 day free trial period and a $10 a month subscription fee.  Sign me up!

Goodbye Exercise TV.  Hello Gaiam and StreamFit! 

Not only are these great resources to anyone that wants to workout at home, but they also provide inspiration and motivation to fitness instructors that are supplying several workouts a week – or even a day – to the same audience.  Let’s face it.  It’s a struggle to keep the content fresh and up-to-date without a go-to source that helps us generate ideas.

I’ve watched some of the StreamFit you tube videos and it doesn’t seem like a realistic venue for me. But, it may be a great option for you.  Check out a sample workout at StreamFIt TRX Training Push/Pull Core Workout. I have signed up for 10 free days of Gaiam and I can’t wait to get started!

  1. liveexcerise.com is an awesome website that I have been using recently since exercise TV went off the air. It’s free and there are new workouts of every variety each day.

  2. Another alternative (not “on tv”) is Bodyrock.tv which has great interval workouts. SHORT and to the point. Requires a little more equipment but their videos show alternatives. What I like is that I can write down the moves, plug in the intervals to my interval timer on my iPhone app and watch tv while I workout. My favorite workout is “For the Haters” which I don’t have the Ugi ball she uses so I use a weighted med ball. Check them out if you’re still looking for something good. 🙂
