Member Library

Here you’ll find hundreds of Beachbody’s world-class programs, including P90X3, 21 Day Fix, 80 Day Obsession, Transform :20, Morning Meltdown 100, and many more.

Offline Mode

No need to depend on WiFi to play your workouts. Download unlimited videos to your phone — as many as your device’s storage will allow, and keep them forever (as long as you’re a Beachbody On Demand member, that is.)

Once a workout is downloaded, you can access it at any time in the app, even if you’re deep in the mountains or on a blimp, i.e. without a cell or WiFi connection.

How to download a workout

  1. Tap on the program that contains the workout you would like to download.
  2. Tap the downward arrow icon to the right of the workout.
  3. If you are not connected to WiFi, you will be asked if you like to use cellular data to download the video. Choose how you would like to download the video to begin the process.

Cast and AirPlay

The app also features the ability to AirPlay to an Apple TV and Cast to a Chromecast device so you can stream and view your favorite workout videos on your TV.

See Your Caloric Burn Onscreen

Do you own an Apple Watch? Want to see your calorie burn and heart rate in real-time onscreen as you’re working out?

With the Beachbody On Demand App for the Apple Watch, you’ll get instant feedback and see your real-time workout data on the top right of the screen so you can adjust your effort to match your exercise goals.

And, you’ll also be able to use your Apple Watch as a remote to control the playback of your workouts.

At the end of each workout, you’ll see a summary of your performance. This includes the length of your workout, your average heart rate, your calories burned, and the amount of time you spent in five different heart rate zones.

You can compare your results over time to see how you’re progressing.

What do I need to be able to use the Beachbody Apple Watch app?

To get access to this functionality, you’ll need a membership to Beachbody On Demand, the Beachbody On Demand app, an Apple Watch, and an Apple device (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV) to play your workout.

If you have an Apple TV, stream Beachbody On Demand through your Apple TV and you’ll see your heart rate and caloric burn displayed on the screen while you’re exercising.

If you don’t own an Apple TV, stream Beachbody On Demand from your iPhone or iPad and use AirPlay or Chromecast to beam it to your television. This will also allow you to see your activity information.

Where does the Beachbody Apple Watch app get my information for calorie burn and heart rate?

The Apple Watch is continuously tracking your heart rate and Apple HealthKit contains your other information.

The Beachbody On Demand app overlays that information onto the video screen.

The more data you provide (height, weight, body fat percentage, etc.), the more accurate your caloric burn numbers will be.

How to Get Started With Beachbody On Demand
