Everything seems to be digital these days – books, music, movies and now fitness workouts! Ever wondered what the advantages are of subscribing to an online fitness network for your latest exercise class compared to using those old, dusty DVDs?
Workouts offered in digital format enable users to access these classes wherever they are and whenever they want through their laptops, tablets and smartphones. As long as you have a WiFi internet connection, a fitness subscription network can provide fitness classes for you on demand, 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Whether you are in the comfort of your own home, at work on your lunch break, or visiting a friend’s house, you will always be able to access a fitness class without the hassle of searching for a DVD player to watch a DVD.
Online exercise classes can offer a huge savings to the customer. To show just how big a savings you can get, let’s take a look at a specific case study. The Fitness Channel currently offers 20 online classes for Pilates, aerobics and yoga at a subscription price of $4.95 per month. If you were to buy all 20 classes in the form of a DVD, your cost would be $399 total since each DVD retails for $19.95. That’s the equivalent of almost 7 years worth of The Fitness Channel monthly subscription for that price. As you can see, the savings are huge!
In the above example, we assumed that all 20 classes offered by The Fitness Channel were available on DVD to illustrate the value of an online subscription network. However, 7 of the classes are not available on DVD. Customers can only access these classes online. This illustrates the point that an online network can offer a larger variety of workouts since they do not have to spend the extra investment in producing a physical DVD. As an added bonus, one of the online classes offered by The Fitness Channel is free. Not many fitness companies are handing out free DVDs due to the price factor, but a free class online is much more doable.
How would it feel to lug around your portable DVD player every time you go outside? With an online fitness subscription, you could even participate in the class outside using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Also, on vacation you won’t have the excuse that you couldn’t play your fitness DVDs in the hotel room. Now, while on the road for vacation or work, you can access the classes anywhere you have access to a WiFi connection.
Still using those old workout DVDs from the ’90s because you don’t feel like spending money on new DVDs with the latest fitness trend? With an online fitness network, the classes can easily be kept up-to-date with the latest workout routines at no extra cost to you. It’s to the benefit of the online subscription service to keep adding new classes to their selection to attract new customers and keep their current ones happy. As a subscriber, you reap the rewards! – T.Y.
