About DailyBurn

DailyBurn is an online fitness destination for men and women that’s claimed to provide 16 different exercise programs and more than 100 workouts—all from elite expert trainers—that can keep you motivated and give you better results in less time, using daily routines, meal plans, recipes, and supplement recommendations. Because of this, DailyBurn dubs itself as a “digital fitness solution” that acts as your complete resource for working out, whether at home or on the go (we’ll talk more about this in a moment).

Maybe you’re looking to improve your fitness based on a New Year’s resolution, or perhaps you’ve been working out for a while and are just looking to spice things up by trying something new. Whatever the case may be, is DailyBurn a quality website that can help you reach your goals? We’ll answer this important question shortly, but first, let’s take a look at how DailyBurn works.

Understanding how DailyBurn Works

In order to access DailyBurn’s fitness library, you’ll need to answer a few basic questions on the company’s home page. This includes entering your current weight, your goal weight, and your gender, age, and email address. Then, you’ll need to indicate your previous level of workout experience, what type of body you’re looking to achieve, how much time you have available to work out, and more. Finally, based on your answers to these questions, DailyBurn will display a recommended trainer and fitness program, at which point you’ll be able to watch a video preview in order to get a better idea if it’s right for you.

Then, if you decide to sign up for DailyBurn’s free trial (more about this in the Pricing section), you’ll gain access not just to your recommended program, but also to their library of more than 100 workout videos across all programs, which are sorted by:

  • Goals (strength, weight loss, stay fit, etc.)
  • Difficulty (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
  • Duration (anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months)
  • Workout length (between 15 and 50 minutes)

If you’d like full details about any of the programs, all you need to do is click on them and you’ll be taken to their home page.

Regardless of the program you choose, DailyBurn’s videos can be streamed through your laptop, phone, tablet, and even devices like Roku, Xbox, and more (a full list of supported devices can be found here). And as you move through your chosen program, DailyBurn is claimed to visualize your progress (e.g. number of workouts completed, weight lost, calories burned, etc.) using graphs and encouraging messages.

So, can you achieve your fitness goals using DailyBurn? Probably so. But is it right for you? Consider the following:

Mind Your Connection

After signing up for DailyBurn’s free trial and testing out some of their content, we found that their videos look crisp and clear; even when viewing them in full screen mode on a PC. However, it’s important to keep in mind that you’ll probably need a fairly fast internet connection to stream the content without any lag, which means that viewing them over your carrier’s plan may eat up (no pun intended) a lot of data, and/or could lead to some frustrating viewing experiences when trying to workout when using anything other than a Wi-Fi connection.

In short, while DailyBurn’s content may be accessible from almost anywhere, your user experience may not be equally enjoyable in all locations.

You Need to Be Self-Motivated

It’s also important to keep in mind that, while some of DailyBurn’s fitness tools can provide you with a much needed motivational boost, for the most part, you’ll be on your own throughout the entirety of your program.

Because of this, if you tend to lack self-motivation when working out, the independent nature of DailyBurn may not be idea for achieving your fitness goals. In other words, DailyBurn may be able to show you the path to fitness, but it’s up to you to get off the couch and put in the effort.

It’s Not Just About Working Out

Speaking of which, achieving your fitness goals is often just as much (if not more) about proper nutrition than it is about the types of exercise you’re doing, so it’s good that DailyBurn’s programs address both. In other words, as long as you have the motivation to stick with it, DailyBurn’s well-rounded programs appear to address all of your needs.

Are Consumers Talking About DailyBurn? What’s the Buzz?

Since writing our original review, numerous HighYa readers have expressed their opinions about DailyBurn, most of which seem to be positive. With an average rating of 3.5 stars, some of the most common compliments appear to relate to the variety of workouts and programs available, low price for what you get, positive results from sticking with the programs, and the ability to access content wherever you are.

On the other hand, some of the most common customer complaints related to DailyBurn appear to reference difficulty cancelling free trials without being charged, in addition to excessive emails (note: we didn’t receive too many emails after signing up for DailyBurn’s trial).

Outside of HighYa, DailyBurn appears to have an equally positive online customer reputation. The company isn’t rated with the Better Business Bureau, although they do hold more than 20 closed complaints (as of 1/7/15), most of which appear to reference billing problems/cancelling trials or subscriptions.

DailyBurn Pricing & Refund Policy

When initially signing up for DailyBurn, you can opt for a free 30-day trial, which gives you full access to your recommended program, as well as to DailyBurn’s complete library of videos, articles, and nutritional information. When signing up for your trial, you’ll also have the ability to add 1-on-1 coaching guidance for an additional $15 per month, which can be declined if you’re not interested.

If you cancel your DailyBurn trial before the 30 days is up, the company claims you won’t be charged a penny. However, if you decide to stick with your program, you’ll be charged $12.95 per month. According to the company, your membership can be cancelled at any time without further obligation.

Important note: Membership fees may not be your only costs. Some programs may not require any additional equipment, while others may require weights and other devices that could increase your overall cost by $100 or more. Also, your nutrition plan will include recommended supplements (which can be purchased directly through DailyBurn), although these can be purchased through third-parties if you prefer. In fact, they may not be required at all if you so choose.

With this said, DailyBurn does not offer refunds or credits for partial months. In other words, once your cancellation is processed, you’ll continue to have access to the site for the remainder of the month, after which your access will be removed.

Can DailyBurn Help You Achieve Your Fitness Goals?

Chopping to the Point: Given DailyBurn’s positive online reputation with customers, their more than 7 years in business, their wide variety of workout programs and videos (and the expert trainers who host them), as well as their complementary nutrition information and meal plans, it’s very likely that you’ll be able to find fitness success using their site.

However, keep in mind that you’ll need to be self-motivated in order to achieve this success. In addition, based on our research, you might want to cancel your trial a few days before the 30-day mark in order to avoid possibly being charged.

    Scam

    • Fort Wayne, IN,
    • Jun 26, 2015

    I can't speak to the effectiveness of the actual workouts because I signed up for it and promptly forgot about it. I am very active and love to exercise. I just never got into DailyBurn. However, I think a company screams scam when you enter your credit card information and never hear from them again. I had a subscription for three months and never got a single email from them. If they were really interested in keeping me fit, wouldn't they be emailing me and reminding me to work out and fulfill my fitness goals? Once I canceled, the emails started to stream in asking me to return and asked me to work out with them. I was so turned off at that point. I would never recommend it to anyone.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Billing Scam

    • Milwaukee, WI,
    • Jun 17, 2015

    I will echo what the other reviews citing bad business/billing practices have said. They charge you without consent. I can't speak to the workout quality as I never had time to actually use the program. My review is based solely on the fact that I went online in my account settings and CANCELED my membership. The message on the screen when I did so stated I would no longer be billed. However, they switched my request to "pause membership", not my actual request to cancel. I look at my bank account today to see they started charging me after two months of no charges. I know for a fact that I did not "pause" my membership – I CANCELED it. Nice little racket they have going on here. If you give this company your credit card info be aware and watch your account like a hawk.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Horrbile

    • Jun 15, 2015

    So I paid for this for three months and got bored and I canceled my subscription. Come to find out they charged me a few months later and I cannot even remove my credit card info. There is no phone number to call and complain, this is a HORRIBLE company and I am disgusted with them. I canceled AGAIN and entered a closed account credit information so they can try to steal from there.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Watch out for extra charges

    • Chicago, IL,
    • Jun 1, 2015

    I just joined DailyBurn about a month and a half ago and just received my first charge and it was $27.95! When I signed up, it said it was going to be $12.95. I have no one to call and talk to about it. I sent an email and am still waiting to resolve this extra charge.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Selena

      I'm currently using the free trial, so I'm not an expert on DailyBurn. However, I'm going to guess that when you signed up for the trial, you selected personal coach option. This is an extra $15 per a month, which would make your charge the $27.95.

      If you log in online and select "Account Settings," you'll see a section called "Subscriptions" on the top right. See if "Coaching Status" is active or inactive. If active, then that's the reason for the extra charge.

    The only program that motivated me to start working out again.

    After having three kids the idea of working out seemed like an out of reach thought. For some reason other programs and even signing up at the gym gave me no motivation. Then, I saw Daily Burn online and decided to give the 30 day free trial a shot. I have been doing the workouts now for almost three months and I love the workouts. I like that the workouts are diverse. My husband keeps saying my body looks a lot more toned and he and I both see a difference.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Bad Buisness

    • Kewadin, MI,
    • May 29, 2015

    I emailed them three times can't get a hold of anyone. My daughter canceled this over email because you can't get anyone live there. This was done three months ago yet she got charged again this month. Stay well away from these scam artists.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Convenient

    • May 15, 2015

    I like that there is a program for the beginner. It has helped me to remain motivated. I get up in the morning and do my workout. The gym has always been a bit of mystery for me and these easy to follow workouts have been great.

    SCAM!

    • May 15, 2015

    I signed up for the trial and was not impressed. The workouts are only 30 minutes and not that great. I could then never cancel it! Suddenly could not get on website and 1-800 number failed. I finally disputed with credit card and had to change my credit card number to get it off. Such a scam! Stay away.

    Daily Burn is the best

    • Milwaukee, Wi,
    • May 1, 2015

    I do the daily burn cardio sculpt and within few weeks I could see the results. As long as you eat healthy, do your exercise it'll work for you. I see my abs forming, my butt doesn't jiggle when I walk and I went down a pant size, so am so sticking with it.

    I did not realize I was being charged monthly

    • Lindenhurst, NY,
    • Apr 28, 2015

    Please ensure that you do not mistakenly hit auto renew. I had NO idea I was paying for this monthly as it gets blended into the iTunes bill with the songs I downloaded.

    I did not like this program. It is not worth the fee in my opinion.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
