SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Beachbody, a leading provider of at-home and gym-based fitness programs, today announced the official launch of its streaming service, making it easy for anyone to work out anytime, anywhere, on any screen. The service, Beachbody On Demand, provides access to an extensive library of comprehensive programs and workouts such as P90X, Insanity, TurboFire, Body Beast, and Brazil Butt Lift, from a number of celebrity trainers including Tony Horton, Shaun T, Autumn Calabrese, Chalene Johnson and Sagi Kalev.
Since 1998, Beachbody has provided fitness, nutrition and weight-loss products and services to more than 20 million customers working toward their goals, and today features a network of nearly 350,000 independent "coach" distributors.

"With a mission of helping people achieve their goals, Beachbody is once again making it easier for people of all ages to live more healthy, fulfilling lives."
Earlier this year, access to Beachbody On Demand was first offered to the company's team of Beachbody Coaches, who tested the service and provided feedback on the user experience. During its initial two-months, more than 1.5 million videos were viewed, totaling nearly 400,000 hours of video streamed through the service.
Beachbody On Demand is available to anyone with a connected device, from mobile phones and tablets to desktop and laptops, as well as on TV's through over-the-top (OTT) streaming devices including current generation Roku players and Roku TV™ models, Amazon Fire TV and Google Chromecast. Through these devices, Beachbody On Demand will play on some of today's hottest platforms, bringing the new streaming service to even bigger screens.
