If you’re a complete nerd/geek like me, you want your workouts not on outdated media, but streaming to a browser near you. Beachbody has come out with a new service called Beachbody on Demand. When you set up a BOD account (runs you around $12 per month, billed quarterly), you instantly get access to many titles for no extra cost.
For example, you get all of the P90X series of workouts by Tony Horton (including P90X, P90X2 and P90X3), a HUGE value. Additionally, you get all of the Insanity workouts by Shaun T. It’s a really sweet deal stock, out of the box (so to speak).

Become a dragon.

It’s all about proper food pairing!
