The Daily Burn, a subsidiary of InterActiveCorp (IAC), takes an innovative approach when it comes to workouts by taking out the routine and allowing members to choose what types of workouts to incorporate daily. If a yoga session is in order, or pilates, strength training, cardio, members are likely to find exactly what they are seeking under one user friendly, easy to navigate platform.
Sometimes finding a fitness program tailored to a unique set of needs can be challenging. Most programs offer a singular plan for workouts, nutrition and advice. The Daily Burn has taken the guess work out, incorporating a new idea – allow the customer to choose workouts to fit each of their needs and put them onto one user friendly site.
This program is set up with a free 30 day trial period, so we decided to sign up and see what it has to offer. Upon initial sign up we were provided with yet another free offer for 1-on-1 guidance from real coaches, also extended as a free 30 day trial. After which, members may choose to continue this subscription for $40 a month. This coach guided portion is part of a partnership with Vida by utilizing the mobile app for personalized guidance. Members can choose their coaches, track exercise, nutrition intake, weight loss/gain, and get feedback from their coach at anytime. Included in this package is a 1-on-1 weekly video consultation, helping members meet their fitness goals.
Because many individuals are uncertain as to which of the various programs they may benefit from, they have given members the option for help in finding a plan, or to simply get started with the program. When getting help in choosing the right program for you, a series of 3 short questions will be asked:
- Fitness Level – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced (we chose intermediate)
- Length of time dedicated to workouts – 15, 30 or 60 minutes
Our recommended program was Cardio Sculpt, containing 12 different workout sets ranging from 15 to 50 minutes, with the duration being 3 months. Unfortunately, many individuals don’t want to follow a complicated step or dance type routine. The good thing is we did not have to go through with that option and were presented with alternate recommendations, or to simply browse through their selection of workouts. Should members choose a program they do not enjoy, they can simply switch workouts for free. 18 different workout plans are incorporated within this program ranging from Yoga, Pilates, and mobility workouts, to intense strength training and muscle gains and maternity fitness. One program offered is IntelliBurn which samples each of their programs in one facet. Once a program is selected members will be guided to a user dashboard with the workout plan, nutrition plan, and recommended supplements. There is a suggested equipment list for the workout plan chosen. For example, the IntelliBurn suggests we have a medicine ball, yoga mat, kettle bells, stability ball, dumbbells, pull-up bar, and resistance bands. Progress trackers may be found within the user dashboard, helping members to visualize their progress on neatly defined graphs with motivational messages to keep members encouraged.
We also enjoyed the ability to access workouts from any device with an internet, including iOS, Andriod, Roku, PS3, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Xbox supported devices or consoles.
One major downfall to this company is they don’t offer any contact information should members have questions or concerns, or even to cancel their memberships. The only method of contact is via email at [email protected]. This is one aspect members have complained of. Otherwise, we were unable to find any additional complaints.
