I looked again last night. They don't have many choices, but they do have about 20 exercise DVDs in the Workout category. I figure, the more we use them, the more Netflix will see that we want them and they'll continue adding more.

To find them, I typed in words like: workout, pilates, cruch, self, or yoga in the search box. The ones with the blue play button are instant streams, otherwise, you have to have them send you the DVD. They have several non-stream items as well, but I haven't gotten curious enough about them yet.

I just discovered this yesterday! I love it. Saves tons of money not having to buy different dvds so I don't get bored.

These workout videos do not seem to be available in Canada, which I found to be very disappointing. Maybe if enough of us are asking for it, Netflix will fix that and give us the variety that those of you get further south.

There are certain ones you cannot stream. Some of them you have to have the dvd sent to you. One of the yoga ones is my favorite. I love the British lady and I wish she would do more videos.

I HATE Canadian Netflix... it shows me all the workouts, but they're all unavailable.

For some reason I never bothered to check instant streaming for work outs. I get work out dvd's from Netflix all the time though. I like to switch it up every couple weeks so I don't get bored! Right now I'm on day 5 of Jillian Michael's Six Week Six Pack.

I called in and asked them to add more workout videos because they only have the one choice for here in Canada. I was told that they simply don't have all of the liscensing yet and if they get more requests for it, it may happen sooner. The guy I spoke to in Customer Support was really helpful.

I haven't read through the thread yet.

Does anyone have a favorite Cardio Kickboxing dvd?

I have done Jillian Michael's already and love it!

Thanks smile

bummer...but thanks for saving me the frustration of running upstairs and saying to my hub 'hey, let's look at the exercise stuff they have on NETFLIX' please, please. (kicking him out of whatever game he may be playing only to discover the choice isn't there) lol. I'll start searching for them daily too and see if they get the hint.

10 Minute Solution Kickbox Camp is available for streaming. Keli Roberts - she's fun.

Not a real big selection for instant workouts. Here's what I've found so far (I'm sure there are others)
Crunch: 13 available
10 Minute Solutions - 7 available
Dance Off! - 4 available
Self: - 3 available
Trainer's Edge - 3 available
Healing Yoga - 2 available
Yoga for Health - 2 available
Pilates Essentials
Pick Your Level Pilates
The Situation

My favorite instructor is Ellen Barrett - Crunch: Super Slim Down is wonderful (she has 5 instant workouts).

Too bad they took them down from the instant video stream. They are all now DVD by Mail option. Too bad netflix does not see the value in helping us lose weigh in a convenient manner. I cancelled my membership with them as the videos I liked are available on YouTube. Granted the quality is not as great, but I am disappointed in netflix.

Sniffle sniffle. I also noticed that they took them out of the streaming options. I really liked the Crunch exercise videos. Sure, I can get the dvd's mailed to me, but it was just so convenient that I could play whichever one I wanted to. But I found that I love the Ellen Barrett videos. I think I'm going to invest in actually buying some of her dvd's.

Wow...I have netflix and didn't even know about this...Thanks for the info!
August 4, 2012 8:48 AM
Great to know, thanks. Having cable, I use the ones on On-Demand they are free if you have cable.

I'm commenting on this thread so it goes in "My Topics" to save for later! I've been asking about this (no one ever replies) for a while now. I've only been able to find the crunch Salsa... I tried it for 5 minutes but the lady was so obnoxious I couldn't continue, lol.
