The Les Mills On Demand fitness program was recommended to me by a work colleague as a great way to work out at home as she wasn’t a fan of the gym.
The website has been professionally designed and is easy to use. There are a number of helpful getting started video series available after you sign up. You can easily see these on a lazy weekend.
There are sections on the site dedicated to the following topics: Community (link to Facebook), Challenges (weekly plans), Equipment, Getting Started and Help. At the top right there are links to search, subscribe, subscribe and sign in.
There is a handy fitness test that allows you to assess your current fitness level using four basic tests. This is an ideal way to measure your progress.
You’ll probably spend most of your time on the homepage – the fitness videos are broken down into the world’s top programs, trainer series, workout plans and challenges, getting started, new workouts this month, bonus content (stretch, audio workouts, dance like) Nina Dobrev and more).

You will likely like some of the fitness classes more than others. I enjoyed the Body Attack and BodyCombat courses the most. I would have enjoyed the dance classes more if we hadn’t had a carpet at home. Perhaps the only thing some people will miss is recipes and meal plans.
I found Les Mills to be a great gym alternative and perfect for anyone looking for a professionally designed fitness regimen to use at home.
