I LOVE openfit - so will renew BOD only in a month when my year with BOD and BODI exp

I never use the BODI content, and I love love love openfit. So I'll get a great year at 119.00 and then next year think about whether I want to renew.

I've cancelled many things or won't renew:
1) decided against MOSSSA after my trial because analysts paralysis
2) Cathe - I adore her, but I have so many DVDS and don't ever use the on demand stuff because of all the other things I have that stream
3) Supernatural VR - fun, but it's shadow boxing, etc - not worth the price- but I did have fun with it, and might on occasion buy a month.
4) Streetparking - great content I Neve rused and since I like BBOD openfit workouts, no point.

5) The db method - no point in the app if I can just use the older content on YouTube.

I'll keep:
1) Pvolve- because I bought the equipment,but I have to actually use it or else! LOL
2) BOD
3) Might sign up for Megan rump the sculpt society if she has a good Black Friday price.
4) Asana yoga.As an iyengar, my family visiting India always exposed me to elder relatives with power and flexibility due to them being yogis. I NEED to do yoga - turn 57 this year and need to stop being an idiot about daily flexibility. So asana, some YouTube Indian people that I like, and I'll also start doing ravi /ana a few times a a week.

I'm an empty nester these last few years, work from home as well, since 2019 when I switched jobs away from Bose, and have all the equipment I need, so there's no excuse at all not to workout and use the services I want to keep.

Is there a way to see BODI contents before signing up?

You have to have a Beachbody On Demand subscription and BODi is an additional charge (or you can subscribe for both as a package deal). I don’t think there’s a way to see all the contents without subscribing. But here’s a You Tube with explanations and pictures:

Here’s a sample BODi workout with Autumn:

Here’s a link to a 24 hour Pass so you can try a few for $7:

Hope that helps.

I agree.

I love variety but seem to come back to favorites like Cathe and BOD.

I really wish they would give the option to go month to month. I want to go back and do Barre Blend, and I want to try the Andrea Rogers barre workouts.... but I definitely don't want to pay for a whole year at a time. I think they have a 3 month plan but it's not much less than the yearly! I know the live workouts are all the rage right now but this feature isn't important to me. I have all of my old favs on dvd (Yoga Booty Ballet, Slim in 6, PIYO) so I'm good.

I did a couple of programs with BOD but just don't love them enough to continue a membership. I also go back to Cathe quite a bit. I guess I'm sort of anti-BOD marketing or the way they go about making money. I'm currently mixing up youtube workouts with Cathe's STS Phase 2. I just did a big Cathe equipment purchase and got 30% off. I'm loving the big round mat. But I digress...this thread is about BOD.

I find so many of BOD's workouts to be on the "cheesy" side for me. I used to pay month to month if there was a program I wanted to work through. But with this new set up, they won't see my money anymore, ever.

Angela, nice! Enjoy your new equipment! I wish I had room for the big round mat.

But I did buy a new Proform 9000 treadmill. It has a 22 screen to view iFit programs. Its a nice change from my 11 year old treadmill with a 10 screen (which will be End of Life for iFit in April 23) but still runs like a champ. Hoping the new one is as durable.

I get it, not really a fan of the BOD business model either.
