GaiamTV’s New Online Fitness Hub: Do We Love It?

by Erika Nicole Kendall

A while ago, I was given the opportunity to check out Gaiam’s newest venture, an online streaming service complete with just about every single video you’ve ever seen Gaiam sell, promote, all of it. Seriously. Spend 30 minutes scrolling through the site, and you’ll believe that every single video every created ever is there.

In short… you know what I’ve been spending my past two weeks doing, right?

Not only did I finally get to check out the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead video that everyone had been talking about, but imagine my pleasure in seeing Gaiam also promoting another favorite of mine that I keep talking up:

The site’s not just documentaries, though – though, to me, that’s a big draw. The Active and Wellness section has tons of exercise videos, complete with levels from “beginner” to “advanced,” everything from cardio to yoga (and a category specifically for Jillian Michaels), pilates and dance. I mean, there’s a ton, here.

I look at it like this – if I only had $20 to spend towards getting in a good workout each month, I could purchase 1 good fitness DVD and use it for a month, or I could know full well that I’d prefer to spend it in a way that’d allow me to get access to tons of different videos each month… especially if I know I get bored easily.

Me, personally, I fell in love with this video riiiight here…

…and wound up rushing to eBay to figure out how I could buy it. I think I used this video 6 days in a row trying to get like Seane. I’m pretty sure she’s my dream instructor.

Don’t tell her I said that, though… unless you can make it sound less weird.

Using my special link to access GaiamTV will get you ten days worth of access to the service free, where you can check out not only my favorite documentary (seen above), but you can also watch tons of other documentaries as well as just about every other video Gaiam has had a hand in creating.

So, tell me, y’all – do we love it?

Oh man!! I just cancelled before my 10 days were up. I really didn’t give it a chance and before I knew it 10 days were gone.

Hi Erika,

I love it GaiamTV. I really do. I had it since maybe March or April of this year and I have found myself using it at least three times a week just for the workout videos alone. I got in at the early stages of the site so it was organized a bit differently and though it had a lot of videos, it did not have as many videos as it does now. Even then it was great. I was looking for something to replace my beloved (and free) ExerciseTV after the site was shut down and this just happened to come up on one of the deal sites so I grabbed it. Once I saw the variety of workout videos and had a chance to tool around the site, I was hooked. I found my new go to yoga workout from Patricia Moreno on there and tried out just about all of the Jillian Michael videos I didn’t already own. I renewed once the six months was up and have not regretted it. I had a chance to see Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead thanks to this site, and Killer at Large, plus a few videos from Pamela Peeke are next on my playlist. I can’t see myself giving it up anytime soon.

*singing* “Have I told you lately that I love you?” Lol! But seriously I do. I lurk a lot but this brought me out. I am so crunched for money and I have two weeks to reach my goal of 100lbs lost. Umm, ten days of free workout videos? Yes, I will take that 🙂 Thank you!; you are the best!
