If you're trying to stay active while sticking to a budget, here's an idea. FitSugar reader Sinazucar told me about a website called BeYOU.tv. It's a fitness and wellness video community that has actual full-length fitness DVDs like Shiva Rea's Creative Core Abs, Exhale's Core Fusion: Pilates Plus, and Tai Chi With Tiffany Chen. They offer three plans:
- For free, you can watch full exercise videos, but you'll have to deal with a few ads. You can click and skip over them though, so it's really not that annoying.
- For a 2 Day Pass, pay $4.95 and get streaming access to their entire library of fitness videos for two days — all ad-free. It's a great way to try out the site and see if you want to get the month pass.
- For a Monthly Pass, pay $14.95 for full-screen size, commercial-free fitness videos, and you even get the first week free. There are also videos you can download to your computer, iPod, or TV, and the monthly fee gets you 15 percent off the price.
Find DVDs you've heard of, or search for videos based on level of difficulty, parts of the body targeted, or by the type of workout. If you love to work out to fitness videos, this is an outstanding online resource.
