Daily Burn - Video Workouts for iOS and tvOS

I've been using DailyBurn at home for the past couple months as my only workout regime and its whipping me back into shape since the holiday season.

I have always made sure to integrate exercise into my life to keep healthy and fit. My fitness life dates back to high school when I began Junior Varsity Football as a 9th grader. I was much heavier back then and ended my football career in the 12th grade weighing in around 260 lbs. I was big, muscular but also chunky. I was a lineman, tight end and defensive end so I needed to be big. I wasn't a receiving tight end but more of a blocking tight end due to the main scheme we ran on the offensive side of the ball. With that being said, I still worked out, primarily because I had to but, unbeknownst to me at the time, it set me up for a future healthy and fit self.

Today, I weigh in around 185 lbs and have been at that point for about 7 to 8 years now. That's in part to a pretty good diet and consistent workout sessions that I have been able to stick with during that time. My workout regime has changed over that time from having gym memberships, purchasing P90X, Insanity, Fitstar for iOS, The Johnson & Johnson Official 7 Minute Workout App and now DailyBurn.

All the programs above I have listed are great and each one offer a iOS counterpart but, as all things, they tend to get long in the tooth. DailyBurn has been great so far because it gives you a plethora of different fitness programs that you can cycle throughout a minimum of 6 week cycles. That way you can choose to do the same workout routine a few months or a few weeks, it's up to you. At any time you can choose to do a routine from a different workout program that daily burn has to offer.  On top of that, each and every day they have Daily Burn 365 which features live 30 minute workouts that start at 9:00 am each day. If you miss the workout, you can replay it within the app for the entire day. This program is geared for everyone as fitness that everyone can do. Another great addition to the service.

In addition to the routines being top notch, and something for all fitness levels, there is also an app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. If your are a first time user you get 30 days to try out the program then after that it is a subscription model. It is $12.95 per month and it will run on all your devices. $12.95 to me is not bad considering what all the app has to offer. If you look at it compared to a gym membership, I would say that's a pretty good deal considering the average cost of a gym membership is roughly $40-$50 per month from my experiences.

DailyBurn has programs for beginners, cardio programs with body weight exercises, tabata training with Bob Harper (one of my favorites), heavier weight super sets with Dumbbells (another favorite), 15 minuters, Yoga and Pilates, Kettle Bell, and even a program for expecting mothers. It has a lot to offer and I think that anyone can benefit from it. With a wide variety, you should check it out if you are looking for a new way to incorporate exercise into your daily life. With it being available across all iOS devices as well as the new Apple TV, I think you should at least try it out if you are looking to get back into the swing of things.
