Need some inspiration or content ideas for your brand new On Demand library? Thanks to several of our customers (50!), we able to provide you with dozens of examples of different types of on-demand workouts, video, ideas, and more.
From how-to instructional videos to guided meditations to nutrition advice and full workouts, the amount of content you can offer your clients is endless. What matters most is finding the types of content your clients will love and providing them with a valuable service they can't get anywhere else.
To make it easier for you to view we have broken down this extensive list in alphabetical order by type of content and genre. We also provided a list of our top tips for organising your on-demand content to give your clients a seamless viewing experience at the bottom of the list. So without further ado, let's dive in.
If you have clients and members who have different levels of fitness, your On Demand library is the perfect place to provide them with content they can use anytime they want. Creating filters with the level or specifically curating videos for beginner to advanced classes can help them quickly identify the perfect workouts for them. It can also help your clients build and advance. Starting with a beginner video and working their way up to advance will help your clients keep track of their own progress outside of class. Don't leave anyone out and give something everyone can enjoy at whatever level they are most comfortable with.
Go Physio's Go Pilates knows that their intermediate students might be a little more familiar with some of the more advanced techniques in their classes which is why they offer intermediate classes with equipment included in an intermediate collection. Beginners can find videos curated for them in the beginners' collection as well.

Equilibrium Pilates Room includes a breakdown of the most technical Pilates movements in their advanced mat classes, as well as weekly sessions organised by level so everyone can find the perfect class for them.
One of the most popular types of on-demand content that you can offer your clients is recordings of your class workouts. Not only are class recordings a huge time-saver, but they allow your clients to experience their favourite classes again and again and give your clients who couldn't make it to class the community look and feel. You can either link your class recordings directly to your library or save the video of you teaching and instructing and offer that to your clients. You won't have to repeat the same workouts, and your clients will enjoy taking their favourite classes at their convenience. Here are several examples of on-demand class recordings:
Bootcamp SE16 offers a number of various class recordings for their clients who can't make it to the park to work out as well as cardio, mobility, and conditioning sessions they can do at home.

Give your customers videos that boost their cardio without making them run on the treadmill or elliptical. There are so many ways to get your cardio levels up that don't require a machine and now is your opportunity to show your clients how to take it up a notch at home. Whether you offer HIIT resistance videos, cardio boxing or dance, or techniques on how to improve your walking, running, or any endurance exercise, your cardio collection is the perfect place to provide your clients with tons of cardio videos that anyone can enjoy.
Take it to the next level with Flin's Fitness HIIT cardio resistance classes. In just 36 minutes, their customers can get an energy-boosting amazing workout that only requires themselves and a couple of dumbbells if they have them at home.

Whether you mix traditional yoga with HIIT or CrossFit with stretching and endurance training, your customers will love getting to do their favourite exercises in one video. You can make it a series or always offer something new. The combination of different workouts is sure to make your clients want more and more.

Core classes and videos
Abs and core can be one of the most difficult exercises to master on your own, and providing your customers with videos instructing them how to do core at home to get the six-pack they want is excellent content that will always get taken advantage of. Whether you include core in your full-body workouts or create videos solely focused on this key area, your customers will love having dedicated core workouts in your library.

Courses and workshops
Do you offer your customers masterclasses, courses, or workshops that can help them learn about the deeper and more fundamental practices of your fitness business? Perhaps you have clients that are starting their own businesses. Your On Demand library can host this content too when you include it in your memberships that include specialised courses or offer additional informational content for your customers to enjoy within their typical class memberships.

Adding introduction videos explaining who you are and what you offer at your business is a helpful way for your customers to get a better idea of what to expect as a member. Including an intro letting your audience know more about you, what you enjoy, what you want to help them achieve can help build that important impression early on, especially if your training is mostly online and there is less in-person interaction.

Mental health and wellness videos
Do you have clients that want to work on their health beyond exercise? Why not offer some video content focused on mental health & wellness. Guided meditations, breathwork, bedtime stories and stretches can ease anxiety and stress and keep your clients calm and relaxed all day long. The combination of exercise and relaxation is not only proven to help people get in shape, but it can have a major positive impact on their overall health. If you want to offer your clients well-rounded content they can use and enjoy outside of a workout, then you should consider providing focused on mental health & wellness:

Mobility, pain, and injuries
If you have clients that want to come to class but struggle to keep up due to pain or injury, video content with exercises they can do to adapt to their pain and help them improve their injuries can be very helpful. Those customers who couldn't make will not only recover faster but won't have to pause their memberships and miss out on your valuable assistance and guidance on getting them back up stronger than ever. You can also include stretches and exercises your clients can do to avoid injuries in the future and incorporate them into their regular workout routine.

Quickies and short workouts
Give your clients who have small windows of opportunity for a workout something that they can do in a short period of time. Not all workouts or classes need to be an hour or longer to be effective and helpful. A quick 5-15 video for the busy bees can not only make a huge impact on their ability to see that they can fit great workouts into those limited time frames, but it will also give your clients who want to squeeze in a little more something to enjoy as well.

Holidays, films, seasons, tv-series, periods in history, and more are great ways to get your clients excited and add a flair to your workouts. Your client will love opening your content library to find a workout paired with their favourite movie or tv show and music from their favourite band, group, or genre! Who doesn't love the 80s? You can even go the extra mile and ask your clients to submit theme ideas and surprise them with new videos including that theme.

Traditional exercises and the history of fitness

While many of your customers come for the workout and exercise, they'll stay to learn more from you. Bring your passions and specialities together to create unique video content surrounding your fitness category, business, and history.
De Ville's Studio not only teaches its students who to practice Tai Chi, but they also focus on the traditional forms in step by step videos to really get it right and stay true to their practice.
Warm-ups and cool-downs
Properly warming up and cooling down is a very essential part of every workout. Jumping into a workout cold turkey or going straight from a workout at home to your desk can lead to injuries and pain. There is no worse way to ruin progress than to not warm-up, stretch, and cool down properly. If you don't already include these elements in your workout videos, you can supplement your videos with additional warm-up and cool down content.
Before taking it to the pole, the Pole Shed wants all their members to properly warm-up and get ready for their fun energetic classes the right way.
Weighted strength workouts
Do your customers have kit or weights or have they fashioned their own kit out of tools they have at home? Why not offer them something to take it to the next level. Help them boost their progress at home by adding weighted strength videos to your library. Your customers with the right equipment will love finding videos that they can easily follow, and your customers who don't can still follow along without using weights if they still want to do the workout. You can even make recommendations in your videos on how to scale up each week while reusing the same workout video.

Workouts with items from home
Typically your customers' home isn't going to come equipped with all of the fun equipment and kit your gym or studio offers. Giving them video content with workouts including exercises they can do using their furniture is a great way to mix it up and feel like they are using the equipment. From chairs to the floor to the kitchen table, show your customers how to use their home items to get in a great workout.

Quick tips for organising your on-demand content in your TeamUp On Demand library
The On Demand feature comes with a number of organisational tools to help you make viewing and subscribing easy for your customers.
Create any number of tags you want that your customers can use to filter and easily find the content they love. You can arrange and organise your tags and filters so that they always display on your videos in the same order and your customers can make quick associations from one piece of content to the next. Add music tags, length and level, whatever will make it easiest for your customers to navigate your library.
If you want certain membership plans to have access to certain types of content, your collections can help you do that. When you add videos to a collection, you need to assign membership plans to that collection. Once you do, customers with that membership will be able to view it, and if your customers do not have that membership, but want access they will need to purchase that plan.
You can assign an instructor to each one of your videos as well. If you have multiple instructors creating content for your library or running your online classes you can label each video with that instructor so that your customers can quickly find and watch videos by their favourite instructors.
Be consistent with your names and descriptions
Creating and clear and consistent format for how you display the content in each video will again, make it easier for your customers to familiarise themselves with. Once you find a format that best serves you and your customers, use that display across all of your videos so they can find exactly what they are looking for whenever they access your library.
