Loving DailyBurn? We need testimonials!
1. I've lost 17 pounds by doing at least 1 video a day! I've been able to really see a difference in my endurance, long days at work are nothing now.
2. The best part of Daily Burn is the variety of videos. You can easily do a different video every single day of the week, and even if you want to focus on the same muscle groups you can still get enough variety to keep your workout interesting. My second favorite part is the cool downs at the end of every video. I usually don't take the time to do a good cool down, but since it's part of the video I do it every single time, and I don't think I've really been sore once since I started in January. I love that.
I am a new mom, full time researcher and PhD candidate. My days are packed. I wanted something that would be FUN. So fun, in fact, that it could compel me out of bed at 5:00 in the morning. I find that this site helps me stick to a routine, think about things like good sleep and cutting out caffeine and dramatically improve my fitness level. Every time I do a new challenge, I see my performance improve....not just the number but the quality, too. Like others here, I love little rewards and badges, so this site truly gives me those boosts I need every day. I have actually incorporated some of these strategies into my writing process to help me stay motivated. Thanks!
1). I definitely have more energy and, because of the recovery videos, I am almost never sore after a hard workout. While I haven't lost any weight, I can definitely feel a change in my strength and endurance.
2). My problem with exercise has always been staying interested. Eventually the drudgery of my workouts would get the better of me and I'd either lose intensity or just stop working out completely. With Dailyburn, I get a variety of videos to keep me interested, plus the videos are psuedo-randomly selected each day so it's kind of fun to see what you get to do on any given day.
Also, I am Bartle's stereotypical Acheiver. If there's a point level or a medal to achieve, I can't help but work towards that goal. The achievement system is top-notch and really pulls me back in when I feel like skipping a day working out.
I absolutely love the variety of workout videos and diversity of trainers. Every workout is a unique challenge and each trainer gives me that extra motivation to get through the workout and push me just that little bit extra. Even though I felt somewhat uncomfortable during the first week or so (not able to complete all the movements, do all the reps, etc…) - I stuck with it and it's paying off. It's a great feeling to challenge myself by repeating a workout for the 2nd, 3rd time or so and complete a movement with good form and to know I’m getting stronger. It’s also cool to see some of the trainers fight with a movement and push themselves - I connect with that.
I started my commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle on Jan 1st of this year. Just yesterday I received the Platinum badge for watching my 50th video and achieved the Athlete ranking. Thus far, I have lost 29.4lbs in 10 weeks while using Dailyburn 5-6days per/wk.
1) So far I have lost 47 pounds (kinda frozen so I have hidden the scale) and almost 9 inches in my waist alone. This is mostly due to dailyburn and their information because I went into this clueless. I started with their tracker just for the tracking of food. Then went to their weightloss workout on the tracker site. The majority of my weight and inches has been since September in which they allowed me onto the Beta videos. Since then its like an addiction. I love trying to keep up with the trainers and pushing myself harder. I have tons more energy and find that if I take a day off of working out Im extremely sluggish. I have been able to start training for a 5K and havent ran since highschool and I can actually do chin-ups... never done those in my life! As for the last part I just have more life to love !!!!
2) My favorite part of dailyburn is .... all of it. I cant seem to choose just one feature because if it was just the workout videos it would feel incomplete. With the Nutritional info and the feedback on the forums and being able to ask any question and get honest answers from trainers and people who are actually struggling along just like you, it makes it the whole package!
After a week of starting with DailyBurn (started with the Yoga program), I'm off my back pain medication and put aside my back brace. I went from barely able to walk to do almost a full recovery. I feel great about myself and can actually tell you I notice an energy difference. I can't wait for a few months of this daily routine I've started to be ready for enjoying the Summer.
